Fall is upon us, friends and we're savoring up all the cozy touches the season has to offer in weddings, engagements and the surrounding events like rehearsal dinners. Layered with plaid throws, copper mugs, secret kisses by little red barns, pulled pork and adorable sheep pairings, this one planned by Bellafare and designed by Matthew Robbins is exactly why we love autumn so. See even more from Heather Waraksa in THE VAULT and stay tuned for the wedding this afternoon!
From Bellafare...Inspired by a family trip to Jack's Camp in Botswana. We incorporated layered kilum rugs, white director's chairs, copper lanterns, and red draping to emulate the unique African feel from the camp they loved so much. Guests dined on family style dishes including braised kale, locally grown vegetables, bbq pulled pork, and flank steak under a red glow throughout the evening. The tablescape was craftfully designed to include copper containers with natural greens, brown apothecary jars with hand painted table numbers, vibrant red chargers, and wooden flatware at each place setting. The Winvian is known for their farm-to-table cuisine, so we thought it was only fitting to incorporate little touches of the farm, like the hand painted gold pigs with kraft paper tags placed on each charger. Immediately following the dinner, guests were invited to join the bonfire, where the party continued over s'mores and mulled wine.
