Elegant Farmhouse Wedding Tables

     We have the best neighbors. Ever. The kind of neighbors that make you reconsider ever moving because you know you'll never find neighbors like them again. Meet Jeannie and Matt Boschma of Elegant Farmhouse Tables. It has been a dream of theirs for years to own a business together that plays to their strengths: her love of people and business and his talent with carpentry. This business plan has been on a slow simmer for a long time and it has been so fun watching and listening to their ideas and business grow! But today I am sooo excited to announce that they are officially accepting contracts for farmhouse table rentals for the Fall 2017 wedding season! In addition to guest tables, they also have adorable sweetheart, gift, and sign-in tables. Trivia: Did you know they had a custom branding iron made and each handcrafted, custom made piece is branded underneath? Besides checking out their brand spanking new website, Elegant Farmhouse Designs, go give them a follow on Instagram @elegant.farmhouse.designs. And now for the fun part. A styled shoot with one of their tables as the guest of honor. A huge thank you to the girls at The Paseo for letting us use their venue! 

An 'Opulent Outlands' Styled Shoot at Orchard Canyon in Sedona


         Do you have a bucket list? I do. But it looks more like a "I'd love to shoot...." bucket list. Styled shoots are like a wedding playground for me. And when you get to combine a beautiful bucket list theme and a styled shoot playground, well... The theme for this inspiration was 'Opulent Outlands' and I savored being a part of it. Savor. I've decided that is my new word for the year. Wedding days go so fast and I want to try and help my brides savor their wedding day. There were several of us shooting that day so sitting down at the incredibly designed table and savoring what had been put together wasn't an option. But there were moments when I found myself hanging back and just watching it all. What an incredible team of vendors!

Britany and Jonathan, A Black Tie Wedding

      When she was told that the groom was relaxed and calm over in his suite, it was all she needed to hear to help calm her as well. He was putting on his cufflinks and black bow tie just as she was getting the final touches of her makeup done. With her wedding dress on Britany easily could have been mistaken for royalty. She was the picture of elegance that you would expect to see at the black tie wedding about to happen. It was time. She grabbed her all floral bouquet and her stepdad walked her out to meet her father and there, at the top of the aisle they paused for a tender moment. As she looked down the aisle, her eyes met Jonathan's and the world melted away. Vows spoken gave way to smiles and laughter as finally, she was forever his. And yet there was more to come. Jonathan thrilled their guests cutting it up on the dance floor and touching toasts gave us just a small glimpse into the adventures of Britany and Jonathan. Until him, the closest she ever came to fishing was opening a can of tuna! These two love to travel and try new things together, even doing a mannequin challenge at the reception. Their magical day of black ties and a pink and gold wedding had come to an end as they laughed and giggled through the grand sparkler exit and into the open doors of a 1961 Rolls Royce waiting to carry them away to wherever their adventures might take them.
