Summer, to me, means taking a step back to enjoy the moment, and appreciate all the little details that make this time of year so special. And this gorgeous inspiration shoot from Christa-Taylor does just that, with a blend of understated elegance, seasonal fruits (real and watercolored!), and cheeky and sweet signage, that all come together to make something truly beautiful. See it all in the full gallery here!
From Christa-Taylor… The rich farmland presents such a vivid array of colors and inspiration for brides in the Northwest. All captured on fine-art film, this shoot was designed around the farm-to-table concept bringing in lush produce, seasonal greens and vendors who highlight the best of what the local farms have to offer.
No event is complete without first sending the invitations, and the hand-calligraphy of Katie Michelle really captured our fancy. Nestled in amongst the peach trees, we festooned the table with an abundance of peonies, poppies, and eucalyptus all the beautiful handiwork of Form and Flora. Square plates brought the perfect touch of modernity complemented by personalized linen napkins and green stemware.
Escort cards were pinned to fresh fruit and doubled as edibles for the guests. Because outdoor events can vary in temperature, we opted for local pies as the star of our dessert bar, with homemade jams as a take-home favor. Mini paper books in customizable color waves made darling bridal party gifts and doodle books for the little ones. Our bride strolled through the trees on the arm of her husband wearing the enviable gowns from Stephanie D Couture. When it was all said and done, I think the thing we loved the most was richness of it all – so much sumptuous colors and textures to soak in. It truly was farm-to-table.
