I love seeing something like the farm-to-table movement find its way into the wedding world. This lovely shoot was created by stylist Jessica Sloane, who says, “I love the concept of growing your own food and gathering friends for a casual dinner party centered around that homegrown food. So we decided to have a dinner at a local farm for Jordana and Trent, a sweet engaged couple who was getting married in a few weeks. All the food was from the farm we were on and the drinks were made at a local brewery.”
I love the idea of printing the menu on a tea towel napkin, and farm fresh vegetables make for a charming and unexpected centerpiece.
Congratulations Jordana and Trent, and thank you to Jessica Sloane for sharing this fun dinner party with us! Check out the behind-the-scenes video of the shoot right here.
