If the flowers, linens and personal details are the building blocks of your wedding design then the venue is the foundation. It is the starting point for any good design and should direct the focus of your wedding. This Muskoka wedding by Rowell Photography and Rachel A. Clingen Wedding & Event Design is the perfect example of all the beautiful things that can happen when you work in harmony with your venue. The moss that can be found in the woods surrounding the ceremony area is mirrored in the green of the flowers and the moss details in the reception. The natural elegance of the terrain is reflected in incredible birch backdrop behind the sweetheart table and the result is perfectly stunning! See it all in the full gallery!
From Rowell Photography…The rugged but beautiful Canadian Muskoka was the setting for this quaint wedding. While the bride wanted elements inspired by the famous Muskoka terrain, she also wanted to ensure the wedding had a elegant feel with vintage accents. Wedding designer, Rachel A. Clingen created a fresh and intimate feel for both the water side ceremony and the tented reception. The ceremony was held on the dock over looking the beautiful lake. Large fresh arrangements of hydrangeas, roses, mums and orchids sat on top of large cylinder vases filled with accents of birch. Mason jars filled with compliment flowers hung on white vintage shepherds hooks and were the perfect detail for the aisle. Hanging satin ribbons, vintage lanterns and even the bride and grooms initials hung from a birch arch and was the perfect backdrop for the small intimate head table. Vintage bottles, birch candle holders all added to the romantic atmosphere. Mason jars filled with fresh hydrangeas, orchids and mums along with birch candle holders were the centerpiece of choice. Burlap wrapped napkins with an orchid attachment added a rustic feel to each guest table.
