Produce, Please!

Reimagining the bride and groom's agricultural roots as inspiration for abundant tabletops.

The most memorable weddings place a spotlight on the unique stories of the bride and groom. For Ashley and Cody Capurro, this meant leaning into their roles in the California produce industry. A fourth-generation farmer whose family has grown vegetables throughout the Golden State, Cody spent his formative years atop tractors with his grandfather and in his dad’s sales office. Ashley currently works at Driscoll’s selling berries. Planner Nena Johansen of Vino Fiore Events beautifully translated the couple’s affinity for agriculture into romantic tabletops. To create an elevated dinner party atmosphere, Johansen incorporated sherbet-hued roses and complementary foliage in white ceramic vases atop rustic tables with burlap linens. Simple silver cutlery bookended ebony plates, on top of which rested menus printed on gray string-and-washer envelopes. Blush-colored votive candles were set in glass cylinders, while vegetables got the calligraphy treatment to transform them into table number signs. Provided by Cody’s uncle, who owns Watsonville Coast Produce, oranges, leeks, asparagus and any number of other fresh fruits and vegetables, were placed throughout the setting in clever acknowledgement of the couple’s backgrounds. At the end of the night, guests were given farmers market baskets for collecting their own bounties to take home and enjoy.
