Intimate restaurant wedding inspiration
These photos really get at the heart of a wedding. Instead of initially basing their vignette off of colors or décor, Sarah Box Photography, A Vintage Affair Events & Rentals, & Bare Root Flora used food, family, and friendship as their muse. The result: a food-centric, intimate community theme oozing with warmth and celebration. Even if you’re not planning a wedding, but say, a small dinner party with your gals—friendship and a darn good meal gives you the green light to party any time of year.
Even model Brittany + her guy encapsulated the theme—they met as chefs in The Kitchen’s original Boulder, CO location. And nothing says intimate warmth and romance like a hand-beaded Sarah Seven number, right?

From the team… 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. We called it the gathered table–a gathering of beautiful things and beloved people.
They chose Denver’s The Kitchen for the gathered table because of their mission to create community through food, a center for conversation and connection. Love this for a special occasion.
Brittany’s bouquet recipe: artichokes, kale, pomegranates, roses, ranunculus, antique hydrangea, Peruvian apple, black privet and other flowers and foliage.
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.
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 gather around their own tables to create truly memorable and fabulous feasts.
Thanks to the talents below… Definitely in the mood to gather ‘round a meal with good friends after this one!
