The Gathered Table Shoot Featured on Style Me Pretty

Happy Thanksgiving!! I am so grateful on this day to be spending it with family in California and also to share some inspiration with you! This shoot is being today on Style Me Pretty! Click here to see the link.

Style Me Pretty Feature

An integral part of a wedding celebration is the gathering of loved ones around a table to share food and drink. We were inspired by the belief in the power of good food and good drink to connect people as family, friends, and a community—and what more could one ask for in the celebration of a new marriage? In this intimate shoot, we wanted to highlight this idea. 

The Kitchen Denver Styled Shoot_Submission

One of Denver’s most celebrated restaurants, The Kitchen, served as the perfect venue for this gathering. One of The Kitchen’s missions is to create community through food—the name of the restaurant was chosen for its desire to act much like the kitchen in one’s home, a center of conversation and connection. We extended the feelings and warmth of the home kitchen to all areas of this wedding and brought in elements of cooking and beautiful edibles to serve as the backdrop for the celebration.

A Vintage Affair Events The stationery was designed and calligraphed by Sally Balt of la Happy in pencil on off-white cotton Crane paper with hand deckled edges to give the paper goods a delicate, soft feel. The calligraphy was done in a modern, fresh, organic style. The invitation set includes cotton paper backed in taupe ticking fabric, hand stitched together. The napkins were made out of the same ticking fabric to give everything a cohesive look.

La Happy Stationary

The table runner was made out of soft peach chiffon, which allowed the richness of the wood table to come through. To incorporate the feast right into the flowers, Bare Root Flora paired a gorgeous variety of blooms, including antique hydrangea and lush sahara, geraldine and mother of pearl roses, with all sorts of lush edibles, including artichokes, kale, pomegranates, persimmon, and lavender in a white porcelain vase. Accents of black privet, peruvian apple, and kiwi vine gave the centerpiece lush, yummy texture. Bud vases of rosemary and lavender and loose persimmon branches and pomegranates gave the entire table a harvest feel.

A Vintage Affair Events  For signature drinks we did a Raspberry Moscow Mule (ginger beer, a Colorado vodka, lime, and raspberries) and a Fancy Fig (prosecco, A Colorado Vodka, Figs, and Thyme). As favors, we wrapped French Apple Tarts in parchment paper and included sweet recipe cards so guests could give them a try at home.

A Vintage Affair Events The Kitchen Denver Styled Shoot_Submission12  At its heart, a wedding really is a celebration of abundance–of love, family, food and memories. We hope this shoot will inspire couples as they create their own fabulous feasts.

New additions

Meet Scarlet! She is our newest addition. She is a lovely piece from France and would make a wonderful dessert or guestbook table! photo-5

And also this one (still haven’t figured out a name- taking suggestions):

photo-6

She might look familiar to you. It’s because she looks an awful lot like Ruby:

We have Ruby for a long time and while she was our favorite piece she was getting a little beat up. So we found one just like her 🙂

We also had a couple cake plates break this summer which is always sad. But it gave us a chance to pick out some new ones:

Winter Wedding at The Inn at Hudson Gardens

Melissa and Hugh had such a beautiful and romantic wedding at the Hudson Gardens. Sometimes simpler is better, and this was definitely the case with this wedding.  The green complimented the dark wood in the venue to create a stunning and natural look. Their wedding was featured on Mile High Bride, HERE!

Blush and Green Wedding Inspiration!

Most brides would not think to bring together pink and green on their big day. However, I think these two colors paired together make one stunning wedding. The boldness of the green is made more feminine with the beautiful underlying tones of pink throughout. Enjoy!

A Claire Pettibone dress that is to die for from Little White Dress paired with a champagne colored veil:

The back of the dress is just gorgeous too:

We specially picked a  lovely vintage cameo ring to compliment the oval shapes on the back of the dress:

and I love the other accessories provided by Little White Dress as well as the guy’s accessories, a classic Burberry watch and this awesome bow tie:

Calligraphy by Trial By Cupcakes

Complimenting the calligraphy stationary is the amazing painted cake with love poems on it by Three Little Blackbirds (who cakes taste as good as they look  I must add!)

The cake backdrop made out of vintage book pages and antique vanity trays (made by yours truly)

Crystal and brass candlesticks…which sparked a new obsession of mine:

The gorgesous flowers from Pink Posey Design

Gold flatware (thanks Brenda!):

Matching Gold Chairs

And of course a venue that is just filled with history and roses everywhere

To contrast all the femininity, we wanted to add something in for the guys; and what guy does not like whiskey:

and we couldn’t forget our gorgeous models- Diandra Reed and Cameron Wilson (hair by  Alex Sternberg and make up by Kelsey Zabawa Makeup Artistry):

This shoot was a delight to design and coordinate. It would not have been possible without the lovely and talented vendors:
