Homemade Farm to Table Elopement by Ivory+Bliss

We love the concept of farm to table. The idea of using only locally grown or raised food to provide guests with the best quality ingredients in the food they eat is something we are passionate about. So when this Farm to Table inspired elopement came our way from the talented Ivory+Bliss team we simply fell in love. The colors are warm and inviting, the fruits and cheeses fresh and the setting, well, it's perfect!

From designer Tristan Needham: "Simple, relatable, and loving. This editorial was inspired by nothing other than wanting images of a couple that your clients, friends, and family can relate to. An outdoor celebration, inspired by fresh food, and the beautiful wide open spaces that surround their home town came together beautifully to tell the story of this young couple, who chose to get married in a place that feels like their back yard. We wanted all of the elements to have a sense of home. With the foraged looking florals, to the handmade cake that looks like moms favorite recipe, to the   table pieces that look like they are straight off of the shelf, or from a china cabinet, we really felt like the homemade, farm to table feeling really shined in this elopement created for the attendees of the first ever Ivory+Bliss Workshop, hosted in Cedar Rapids, Iowa."

I tend to photograph my weddings the way I live my life - fearless, with great emotion and full of joy. You have trusted me with the incredible task of telling your story and I try to do so in the most timeless and beautiful way possible, that is more than anything, simply the two of you. That moment right before you kiss, the way you scrunch up your nose when he tickles you, the hands that have held you up through everything. Life is made up of all of these incredible, tiny moments and details that make us who we are, and how incredible it is that we have the gift of photography that can makes these moments tangible.
