From the Bride...We love the outdoors, and wanted to incorporate natural elements, so we were highly inspired by different textures and colors found in nature; natural wood grains, the effects of lighting, petals/greenery/foliage. We chose our venue due to it's luxurious, natural setting. Some parts of the event come across as rustic, but I actually never thought of it that way. I prefer to think of it from the standpoint of the emotions evoked and the atmosphere that all of these elements together create. To add elegance and warmth, we included hints of cream/ivory and gold/rose gold, while featuring beautiful lighting throughout the spaces.

For the overall feel of each of the 3 locations in which our wedding events took place, we pursued a natural and lush feel: focusing on lighting and greenery. We sought to soften structures that may appear harsh aesthetically. The ceremony was in a structured tent with vines and garlands lining the cross bars, and a lovely draped garland at the altar, pooling in a grouping of ferns at the floor. The dinner took place on a lawn, with 2 long farm tables (with rose gold flatware) - hanging from the open air tent structure were custom built Edison bulb/wood plank "chandeliers" overflowing with foliage (greenery, and white flowers). Dancing took place in the wine cave, where we offered a contrast of elegant hops hanging from the more medieval style chandeliers, while 4 disco balls spun with dynamic colored lighting.
