Al Fresco Bohemian Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

Today’s wedding is so full of great ideas and details, you’ll definitely want to come back to it again and again. Onelove Photography, PS Plans, and Rosebud Floral Design brought Taylor and Grant’s wedding vision to reality with wooden details, heaps of greenery and romantic floral design, and images so gorgeous you’ll have to keep yourself from staring!

From the bride, Taylor: For our wedding day, Grant and I really just wanted to create a space where we could celebrate our love story with all the people who have meant so much to us on this journey to finding each other and HELLO getting married !! Yes, we wanted the decor to be fabulous and the photos to be pretty but really, at the end of the day, we just wanted to invite people into a joy dance with us over the new journey we were getting to start together. We aimed to intentionally create space for our guests to mingle with each other and mingle with US too. One of my favorite moments of the day was when, immediately following our first dance, the band BUSTED out into 3 or 4 more songs that had everybody on the dance floor with us shouting and celebrating before dinner even began. It was so surreal to be surrounded by so many that we loved in one space and break through the stuffiness and routine to just ENJOY the night – singing and laughing and hugging so many people who were there to cheer us on. That is something I will never forget.

We wanted everything about the day to feel really fresh and organic. I went with a design that was pretty “al fresco” with just a touch of bohemian. We utilized a lot of draping fabric and ivy garlands to make that happen – incorporating lanterns and candlelight surrounded by rosemary and lush greens. Then we threw the bohemian pops in with gold and lace fabric chargers, globes for our guestbook(s), and streaming fabric for our arch and dessert table. I loved playing with bistro lights and Edison bulbs to light the beauty that was already there – and we even decided to go with a “farm to table” concept for all of our food and beverages. It was SO fun to see how much our guests loved the unique hors d’oeuvres and buffet selections. Our caterer absolutely blew me away with what she created! Most of all, I love what the aesthetic invited people into – a day to kick off their shoes and enjoy celebrating with us and those around them!

Wedding planning can be stressful because, no matter who you are, so many worlds are colliding – family, friends, vision, cost. The one thing I would say to you, bride and groom to-be, is to hold on tight to what is most important to you as you plan – what YOU want to honor and what YOU really want your day to be about. Every decision that comes along can all of a sudden feel like it is THE deal breaker of your big day (and can have other opinions that go along with it). But Grant and I learned that you have to decide to hold on to the sweetness of the journey by coming back to your non-negotiables (having all the people you want there? amazing photography? killer stationery? great band?) and letting the other stuff go. And, at the end of the day, you are marrying the love of your life and your best friend. So the stuff that you missed? It’s not the point anyway. Grant and I enjoyed the process so much more when we stopped and took time to dream about our marriage together instead of just the wedding day. I PROMISE I PROMISE it’s worth it :) Our vendors were AMAZING and without them our day really would not have come together the way it did :) I think it is so important to hire a team of people who you can really trust as it was all of them in the end that created the space for our most special moments to happen!

Bohemian Seaside Daydream Editorial

Wedding Design

“Seaside” and “daydream” are two words that pair up pretty perfectly in my head, and you’ll need to look no further than today’s styled shoot from London Light Photography, a rustic vintage affair, and New Creation Floral Design to see exactly why that is. The colors were cool toned with a pop of marsala, the style was bohemian, and the result was totally magical.

From the event designer, Lorena of A Rustic and Vintage Affair: This collaboration started with a Facebook message from London Light Photography asking me if I would like to collaborate a styled shoot with her. I checked out her business site and saw her amazing photography work and said YES let’s do it. I have always wanted to do a beach shoot so we both agreed a beach boho styled shoot would be perfect. I started an inspirational board with ideas and colors and style. I changed it several times until I honestly felt I was ready to start the planning. The style I wanted was a watercolor theme – especially having a styled shoot on the beach, how perfect would a watercolor boho wedding be? The color palette would be a mix of lavender, greys, blues and a pop of Marsala, Pantone’s color of the year.

Now that I had the color palette and style in order, I contacted some new talented vendors I had not worked with before and asked if they would love to join our styled shoot. They all said Yes and Sydney and I couldn’t be happier. When I started to create the tablescape look, I wanted to include a mix of colors and props. I wanted the table to look and feel like a husband and wife had just eloped and were celebrating their special moment on the beach having a romantic evening dinner. The table runner fabric colors were a combination of blue, grey, purple and it resembled a watercolor technique. I then incorporated white scalloped shaped dinner plates with a gold trim. I wanted the table to have a splash of color, so that color would be the marsala color of the year. The table napkins were lavender sheer fabric and half of the napkins were dipped into red wine and red Kool-Aid to create a somewhat Marsala color. I added a mix of silver flatware; the stemware collection was a mix of pewter cups, purple goblets and glassware had a grey and marsala watercolor style to it. The name cards were a pearly color shell with white calligraphy writing on it. The centerpiece was my double clam food party food holder and I used it as a floral centerpiece holder. The romance on the table came from the mixed wine bottles with candle wax on them. Oh and the seating, OMG the peacock chairs with the flowers attached to them was the icing on the cake — those chairs created the tablescape I had envisioned.

I asked Allison of New Creation Floral Design to create something that went well with a centerpiece I had been dying to use for a styled shoot, my double clam centerpiece. The floral design they created for the centerpiece tablescape included all the colors on the palette for the styled shoot. From the boutonniere to the peacock chair flowers, everything they created was amazing and the special white ornament ball that was placed in the head table centerpiece was too darn cute. You honestly felt you were looking at a big pearl! The flowers included in the floral design throughout the shoot included Chocolate Amaranthus, red Ranunculus, burgundy Brunia, Silver Dusty Miller, Jasmine Vine, White Garden Rose, Patience Stock, white Privet Berry, Amnesia Veronica, white Belladonna Delphinium ark, blue Cymbidium Orchid Sprays, large-burgundy Belladonna Delphinium, light blue eucalyptus, Silver Dollar Stock, lavender Succulents, Rosettes 4″ Gerbera Gerrondo burgundy.

From the bride, Jessica: I never wanted to look like a “bride” with the big white dress – it’s just not me. Instead I wanted to go for a look that could have walked down the red carpet with the best of them. I looked at dress after dress and didn’t even want to try them on until my bridal consultant asked if I thought about wearing color? After that everything just fell into place. She pulled out three dress: red, blue, and green. I tried on the red and didn’t want to take it off. It was the first and last dress I tried on. The rest was easy. The dress was such a statement that it needed next to nothing in terms of accessories. The color was enough!

The wedding weekend was designed to celebrate Park City and its amazing landscape. Mountain Elegance might be the best way to describe our theme. We had this big plan to get married outside on the side of the mountain and let the landscape be our backdrop but then it rained. This wasn’t a few showers here and there, this was inches of rain from dawn until dust. We quickly moved to plan B and set the ceremony inside in a perfect loft space over the reception. Our florist did an amazing job bringing the outside in by using aspen, moss, local flowers, natural wood benches and much more to our intimate space. The aisle was lit with oversized lanterns and small flower arrangements that set the perfect tone and complimented the soft rain on the windows.

Silver Lake Ski Lodge at Deer Valley was transformed (by Tulips and Thyme) into a country chic dining area with dark wooden farm tables and crisscross chairs. Reclaimed wooden chandeliers were suspended at various heights and were dressed with a multitude of candles and greenery which helped to light the room and create a soft romantic environment. The tables were decorated in shades of ivory and taupe with stunning burnt gold glass chargers, white dinner china accented with soft purple linen napkins. Each table was uniquely designed with the colors of fall – deep scarlet, reds, oranges and gold – all representing flowers and foliage celebrating the season. Included in the variety of floral arrangements were locally harvested flowers as well as garden roses, ranunculus, scabiosa pods, privet berries, cabbages and small succulents in earthen pots. Tulips and Thyme designed amazing flowers to extend over the length of the tables and cascade down the side. It was just beautiful.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Push for what you and your future husband want in your wedding. Opinions are always welcome but stick to your guns and make it happen. It’s worth it! I’m glad we had a small wedding and created that intimate feeling where everyone feels very much a part of every moment. I’m thrilled that our families and friends were willing to travel to Park City, UT and put up with that stress for the festivities. I’m also glad that Tim and I came in one day early and left one day later to relax just the two of us.
