Romantic Outdoor Bohemian Woodland Wedding

Truth be told, there are very few things that I love more than a wedding graced with Jenny Yoo gowns. Surrounded by tall trees, DIY details, and some seriously delish homemade food, it’s a boho chic soiree you’re going to fall head over heels in love with. Because who doesn’t love an evening that ends with a bonfire and s’mores?! Get in on the chicness thanks to Leigh Elizabeth Photography in The Vault!

From The Bride…Our wedding day was a complete dream. From the beginning I knew I wanted a boho woodland style wedding, so we chose a venue that had a perfect spot for the ceremony to be outside, surrounded by tall trees, and also had a rustic lodge for the reception. Going with the boho theme, the decor included lots of amber and milk glass, lace, complete with a few gold accents. Collecting bottles and lace from antique shops was becoming super pricy but thankfully two of my best friends who were also bridesmaids own an event planning and rental business so I was able to borrow quite a bit from them! I like to think I am decently crafty, so I made a lot of the signs and a few decorations myself. My most favorite decoration I made was the M & V banner that hung over the fireplace. Since our color palette was pretty neutral, I loved the idea of having the entire venue overflowing with different textures and types of greenery, and for the flowers we stuck with simple white and soft pink garden roses. I found my wedding dress at BHLDN, and my aunt made the beautiful lace topper that I wore with it. The bridesmaids chose their own dresses, which all had different textures of fabric in shades of cream. Matt and I are both pretty laid back people so we wanted our wedding day to be a reflection of that. A family friend made all of our food (BBQ pulled pork, Matt’s fave and about the only input he gave when we were planning!), there was a bonfire with cozy blankets and s’mores for roasting, picnic tables roped off with string lights for guests to mingle outside, and partying and dancing inside the lodge. The day was such a whirlwind and went by way too fast but it was by far the greatest day of our lives and my heart aches to go back and relive it!!

My most favorite part of our wedding day was the few moments immediately after the ceremony ended. Matt and I had made our way back down the aisle, out of the ceremony entrance and we just held each other for a minute while we soaked up what just happened. Our wedding party followed behind us, then we celebrated and hugged with lots of laughs, smiles, and happy tears!

Advice for Other Brides is to hire a videographer. No matter how much you try to soak up all the moments, smells, sounds, and feelings, your adrenaline levels will be so high that you will forget so much. Even though I can never go back and relive our wedding day, at least I have the most important moments on film to remind me of how wonderful it was.

From The Bride…Trent and I went to high school together, but didn’t start dating until he asked me to senior prom (seriously, the last possible moment to start dating during high school!) The timing ended up being perfect because we coincidentally had plans to attend the same college after high school graduation. After four years together in college, we had to move to different cities for our careers so we dated long-distance for a bit while I lived in Chicago and he moved back to Cleveland. I eventually made my way back to Cleveland because I missed him and we both prefer to be closer to our families anyway! He proposed on our 6-year dating anniversary in the Cayman Islands (quite an improvement from when he asked me to prom passing through the hallway!).

We couldn’t wait to start planning our Wedding! After selecting our church and venue together, I loved meeting with my fabulous team of vendors and planning the “little” details that made it personable! My main goal was to make sure our Wedding felt timeless because I didn’t want to look back at it in 20+ years and say, “what was I thinking!?” Our Wedding day truly was a dream! Since I tend to be an emotional person, the day started with many tears as my Bridesmaids and I got ready (I mean, I have been dreaming of this day since I was a little girl and it was suddenly here!). But, it quickly turned into smiles and pure joy all around as I made my way down the aisle towards my handsome groom at St. Paul Shrine! Following the ceremony, we took pictures at the gorgeous Cleveland Museum of Art (obsessed!) before heading to our reception at Westwood Country Club. It was the perfect scene starting with the gorgeous patio at cocktail hour complemented with vintage furniture from Borrow Vintage and Eclectic Rentals, an oyster bar and signature beverages! The reception was brought together by the stunning floral centerpieces by Molly Taylor and Co., an “almost too pretty to eat” cake by Wild Flour Bakery and a packed dance floor following dinner (who doesn’t love that?!) Trent and I couldn’t have been more happy with what we call our “best day ever!” To top it all off, it was a beautiful sunny day in Cleveland, Ohio.

From Lisa of A Charming Fête… We began planning Kelly and Doug’s elegant Chagrin Falls wedding less than 6 months prior to their wedding date. We wanted to give these two career driven professionals (the bride with Apple and groom with Accenture) an unforgettable day, a moment to slow down and breathe-in this precious time with family and friends. Their timeless and naturally elegant affair took place at a historic English tudor mansion. It was a truly a lush garden scene on a picture perfect 75 degree day. The outdoor ceremony took place in front of a small teahouse with moss and ivy creeping up the sides all set to lovely strings music. Wispy white curtain draping was pulled open to welcome guests into the dinner space. The color palette was mostly neutral aside from hints of pale blush and peach garden roses and lilac branches foraged by the amazing ladies at Molly Taylor and Co. Beautiful and natural centerpieces filled the space. Airy lilac branches bloomed from above. First of the season peonies in the palest muted hues burst onto the greenery filled low centerpieces. Olive branch and jasmine vine spilled gently onto the tables in a similar fashion to the bride’s spectacular asymmetrical bouquet. Wood farm tables with crisp white details and pewter accents kept the tablescape feeling fresh. Special wine selections made by the couple were served during dinner and Mitchell’s homemade ice cream (the bride’s favorite) was hand-scooped into cones and offered as a late night treat. It was a magical day filled with so much beauty. We were honored to be a part of Kelly and Doug’s special day.
