So much anticipation. She’s dreamt of this day since she was a child—what would it look like? How would it feel? And it has finally arrived. There’s a schedule to keep. Vendors arriving and setting up. Family and friends whirling around to turn her dream into reality. And amidst the hustle and bustle, she stops to savor the moment. She steals away, a few brief moments to herself. She gathers flowers and writes a love note to her groom. These still, quiet moments slow the day down just enough for her to remember all that led her here.

“Foraged” symbolizes this idea of slowing down on a wedding day and remembering to reflect on its significance.
