Organic Farm to Table Wedding
Write up from Savan Photography:
I wanted to design something organic, something fresh with pastel colors, lush greens, and blooming buds, all of which represents the new beginning of Spring and sweet love. Our location and setting was perfect, a community garden in San Juan Capistrano filled with planter boxes overflowing with herbs and tender vegetables sprouts and a even a small green house. Our goal is to always be creative and to make sure that its always cohesive. Its to tell the whole complete story to the smallest of details. It was very important to me that we highlight not only the unique space, but to bring the elements of the farm to table concept to light. So we chose to use many of the plants, herbs, flowers and fruits throughout our styling from table settings to the bouquet.
I wanted our tablescape to be simple with in-season flowers like lilacs, pink home grown roses, lemon leaves and deep purple artichoke for that pop of color. Going with the timeless, fresh, and organic feel we used blush ceramic plates and white goblets to round out our table setting. For that modern touch and to bring it all together, we brought in metal chairs. The green door of the greenhouse is what took this shoot from pretty to epic and super unique. That design and color of the door made these images come alive and stand out. My vision was not only the love between them, but I wanted a touch of fine art feel as well.
The cakes from Elise Cakes were absolutely stunning. She made his, hers and ours cakes. She made the first one smooth and simple, the second one included pretty ruffles with light shades of pastel greens to resemble watercolor and the third a three tier cake was the ours cake representing unity. And of course the two of three cakes where adorn with hand picked herbs and cherry blossoms. Too top it all she used vintage large pedestal candle holders as the cakes stand!
My ultimate goal for this wedding inspiration was to have it a flow like a real wedding should, which includes a cheese board as appetizers, followed by the couple at the table, sneaking out to take some more portraits during the golden hour, followed by cake and then last, but not least her new husband hangs love notes for her among the amazing smells of thyme, rosemary and sage upside down bouquets which were also all picked from the garden.
