Elegant Outdoor Wedding at Nestldown

In case you are wondering what happens when traditional elegance joins forces with rustic meets vintage details, this amazing Nestldown affair is here to tell you: it’s fabulous.  The sort of fairytale day where farm tables mix and mingle with vintage typewriters and towering florals from Nicole Ha Designs, all captured in breathtaking images from Janae Shields Photography.  Enjoy it all, lovelies.

From Janae Shields Photography… This gorgeous wedding had all the perfect elements for a magical summer wedding. Beginning with Song’s dress which was custom designed from a few styles she liked. The gorgeous design for that carried through to all the details of the wedding day. The cake itself mirrored the wonderful lace detailing. Song wanted a vintage/rustic look which she accomplished tremendously. The vintage items such as her veil and floral mason jars at the ceremony itself complimented the rustic reception decor. I loved how the farm tables were used to juxtapose the other round tables throughout the reception. One of my favorite details from the entire day were Song’s earrings. These were so unique and different from most bridal jewelery that I was taken aback by the beauty of them. Ryan owns a local restaurant and the food was really important to him. Thomas John Events went above and beyond to create a mouth watering menu. All in all this rustic vintage wedding has been one of my favorite to photograph!

From the Bride… Our vision was natural, rustic romantic and intimate with an emphasis on fresh local food, herbal florals and handmade decor crafted with love. We wanted everyone at our wedding to feel comfortable, at ease and to feel that our day was a perfect representation of our personalities.

The ceremony was beautiful and extremely memorable. We can still remember every moment like it was yesterday and incorporated elements that were not necessarily traditional but meaningful to us. Standing beneath the arbor surrounded by trees, nature and our closest friends and family. The sound of trickling water from the pond in the background and the perfectly placed sun in the sky shining its light between the branches. Hearing each other speak our personal vows and promises was magical. For our unity ceremony we planted a bonsai tree together.

Working with Erika and Michael from This Love of Yours was amazing. They were fun, extremely organized and captured our day perfectly.

One piece of advice I have for planning brides is your wedding is about YOU as a couple regardless of what anyone else says. Create a day that you want to remember for the rest of your lives and know that all of the time, energy and effort you put into planning your day will pay off.
