Vintage Bohemian Wedding Ideas

Design Inspiration

Yummy fruit tarts, boho beauties, and a moody fall color palette — those are just a few of the treats you’ll find in this inspiration shoot from dreamed up by Finishing Touch Event Design and shot by Melissa McCrotty. Most of all, we’re obsessing over the mix of brass and bold hues.

From the event designer, Jessica: I recently had the immense pleasure of designing an inspirational shoot in a fabulous bohemian style. Some of the vintage focal pieces include the absolutely amazing statement jewelry from the 1910s through the 1960s and a mixture of copper and cobalt blue glass centerpiece containers from antique malls throughout the state.

There are a few DIY elements in the shoot, including paper pinwheels we used to accessorize the chairs, but which can also be used as napkin decor, etc. Another DIY project was the ribbon curtain that can be used as a ceremony backdrop or added element for your head table or cake table to create a beautiful focal point.

South Carolina Plantation Wedding

Rustic Weddings

This South Carolina affair shot by Corbin Gurkin (who recently relaunched her gorgeous new site!) and styled head to toe by bride Shannon, who also happens to be a fantastic photographer herself, is the ultimate in Southern charm. In this gorgeous plantation setting moss cascades from the trees, providing the ultimate background for a soiree at dusk! There’s much more to see, so head over to the photo gallery to get a better look!

From the bride, Shannon: Jake and I got married in October, specifically, on HALLOWEEN! It was not necessarily a Halloween-themed wedding, but the date worked and our friend and photographer, Corbin Gurkin, was available then as well. We got engaged at the very end of March, so we had about 7 months to plan. I have always absolutely loved the feel of the Cotton Dock at Boone Hall Plantation, so that is where we chose! So with 7 months, we set out to create our perfectly unperfect handmade wedding!

The morning of the wedding Jake and I headed out to Boone Hall with some of our family and friends to start the prep. I gave some ideas I had and then left them in charge of the rest of the setup! I really did not want a large wedding party so my sister and I got ready at the Restoration on King.

Jake is a musician (drummer) and has played in several different bands in Charleston so three of his friends played as guests were walking into the ceremony area and as my Dad and I walked down the aisle, my friend from preschool, Kendra, sang Cat Power’s “I Found a Reason” and Jake’s friend, Ransom, played along with the piano. Our ceremony was short and quick. We each wrote our own vows and my friend from kickball officiated. I am definitely at times more quiet than Jake so I thought I would have the hard time saying my vows in front of all our friends and family, but it was actually quite the opposite! Jake even started to tear up (this is rare, extremely rare). After our ceremony, guests waved fabric wands that we made as we walked up the aisle.

Guests headed over to the Cotton Dock as we took photographs with Corbin and Thatcher. I did not really want the traditional “grand entrance” and was really quite nervous about this first dance. So Jake and I entered the reception and immediately just went into our first dance (“Mango Tree” by Angus and Julia Stone). We then each danced with our parents. Since our wedding was on Halloween, I made jars of candy to put on each table so our nieces and nephew (flower girls and ring bearer) could “trick or treat” at each table. We also set up a photo booth with some crazy glasses, hats, etc. I am a huge sweets person and knew right away that I wanted to get treats from Sugar Bakeshop! Jake is not really into cake, so I had a pecan pie for me and cake for me (although we still cut the small cake). My grandmother made cookies and my Dad made fudge to add to the dessert table. And… we also had s’mores supplies for guests to create at the fireplace.

Our wedding day was amazing and literally could not have happened without the help of all our family and friends. Jake especially spent so much time making stuff for the wedding including salvaged wood planter boxes, our book paper heart sign, directional signs, and he surprised me before the wedding with the “LOVE” sign that sat above the fireplace—it hangs in our living room today! We exited as our guests waved sparklers — I put on a white Mardi Gras mask and Jake wore sunglasses as a small nod to Halloween!

From the photographer, Corbin Gurkin: Shannon is just a lovely person and was one of the first friends I met when I bought our home in Charleston three years ago. I immediately loved her sweet and calm nature and could not have been more honored when she and her fiance Jake asked if I’d photograph their wedding. The event was so beautifully done – the perfect balance of handmade details and use of the natural environment that makes for a gorgeous backdrop already. A photographer herself, Shannon was conscious of the timing of the day and we were really able to make the most of the late afternoon light. It was a portrait session following the ceremony that is every photographer’s dream. Shannon and Jake’s affection for each other was so palpable and they also really trusted me to capture their personalities in a way that was understated and natural. Having such a great rapport made for some of my favorite portraits to date.

Red Charm Peony Arrangements

Wedding Design

Peonies are truly a perennial wedding favorite. They’re fluffy, colorful, and can be utilized in so many different ways to liven up a bouquet. The always-incredible Sarah Winward of Honey of a Thousand Flowers has more than a few ideas of how to work the Red Charm variety into your floral arrangements that are sure to be crowd-pleasers. Without further ado, here’s Sarah:

From Sarah: Everyone loves peonies. I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t love them, and I dread the day I may meet such a person. Peonies are lush and charming, seeing or smelling one seems to evoke images of country cottages with pathways lined with them.

Peonies begin blooming in the late spring and continue into early summer. They are available again as cut flowers beginning in late fall and into winter. This variety is called Red Charm. Red Charm peonies are the most gorgeous velvety rich shade of red. I love them used with darker colors when they are available in the fall, and used as deeper accent to colorful palette in the spring. Most peonies are very delicate and are fairly fickle as cut flowers if they are out of water in bouquets, but the red charm is another story. It has a strong stem, and the blooms are hearty. Their large blooms are surprisingly heavy, too. They can last a couple of days out of water if the weather isn’t too hot.

This arrangement shows the richness that the peony can bring to a dark color palette, perfect for a fall or winter wedding. Other flowers used in this bouquet were dahlia, ornamental peppers, smoke bush, rosemary, and fall leaves berries.
