There is an innate beauty in the seemingly mundane. Simple interactions centered around the dining table move with a grace and purity that is often unstudied and unnoticed. The table is the cornerstone of the home. Meals are shared, dreams are professed, guests are welcomed, and deep conversations are had. It represents strength, a place of honesty, a neutral ground. The table is a place of nourishment, celebration, and love.

Together with Lucia of Utterly Engaged, Kristine Cooke and Sawyer Baird came together to create “The Table Series” to celebrate a year in the life of a couple. Every month we will explore and capture the little moments couples share at home around the table. This unique perspective of their relationship offers an appreciation of the unappreciated, a peek into their hearts and journey, and a reminder that love, life, and togetherness are strongest in the most ordinary motions of life.

A table set for two. An imperfectly perfect date night in, with glasses of wine, a handmade meal, a little spill here, a gift box there, and maybe something a little lacy on the chair.

The table is a place of nourishment, celebration, and love.
