Farm to Table Engagement Dinner

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.

  • So loved this shoot. Thank you very much for featuring it. I’ve been a huge S&I fan for two years so it’s quite an honor!

  • This wedding is straight from my heart. I grew up on a farm and I love planning weddings…this has to be the ultimate style of wedding for me. Simple and sweet..just like the farm life.

  • The customized printed tea towels are a fantastic idea. What a great, functional keepsake for guests.

    Thank you so much for featuring this dinner (and our handmade, reclaimed wood farm tables!) with two of the most talented gals I know, Jessica Sloane and Jessica Lorren. It was so much fun to honor this lovely couple, and highlight seasonal food from the best farm in Tennessee!

  • I loved that!! Those menus were fab. And that barn in the background. And all the people looked so cute! Beautiful!

    Were they made by hand or through a company?
