Editorial Farm to Table Elopement | Ivory + Bliss Workshop | Des Moines Wedding Photographer


Back in April, I attended a photography workshop hosted by Ivory + Bliss. It was such an amazing time, and I was blown away with the beautiful details they had! One of the things that I learned from this experience is that styling matters. Details matter. As a photographer who focuses on portraits, my main focus is usually on people. But this helped me find inspiration and a new love for styling and details! There are so many vendors out there that I never even knew about! I am really excited to be able to share these vendors with my current and future brides!

This specific styled shoot was my favorite!! The florals are stunning, the harvest table is beautiful and I love the outdoor feels! Harvest tables are a fantastic way to add some serious style to your wedding! One tip I learned is to have a harvest table instead of a head table. That way, you are able to mingle with guests, and it feels more intimate. You can also save money by having a decorated harvest table, and going more simple with guests tables.

What are your favorite details at a wedding???
