Trust me, these images by film photographer Chelsea Mitchell are the perfect Thanksgiving eye-candy! Last fall Chelsea and I set out to create a table-scape inspired by the area we call home: the great sweeping plains of Kansas. Taking cues from natural items found on the prairie such as sunflowers, antlers, and pheasant feathers, we designed this table with love of our hometown in mind. And isn't that what Thanksgiving all about? Being grateful for home and all it embodies? Our families, our friends, our childhood memories. No matter where Chelsea and I's careers take us as adults, we will both always be influenced by this area where the buffalo roam and seldom is heard a discouraging word.
Chelsea and I actually created this table design for a fall prairie inspired wedding shoot for the bridal magazine Nuovo Bride last fall, but I wanted to share it with you all because it would be so perfect for Thanksgiving too! Check out that shoot in this post "Prairie Harvest Inspired Wedding Ideas with Free People."
