Rustic Vintage Weddings
A Colorful Rustic Vintage WeddingCONNIE WHITLOCK
Today’s colorful floral filled celebration is the perfect way to start the week! A rustic affair with a hint of vintage elegance and bohemian charm, it embodies stylish couple Kate & Wes’s laid back and fun-loving personalities perfectly. The dazzling color palette of bright Summer hues and rich purples pops against the lush farm setting, and the Edison bulb lighting adds a sense of intimacy to their inviting barn reception.
As breathtaking as the florals and all the decor details are though, it is Kate & Wes’s personal style that really caught my eye. Kate opted for custom cowboy boots instead of heels, as did her bridesmaids and all the ladies in her family, and showed them off perfectly with her high-low bridal gown. Whilst Wes and his groomsmen looked oh-so-dapper in 3 piece suits and mismatched neckwear. I do so love when couples embrace their inner style mavens on their wedding day!
Before we head to Crooked Willow Farms in Larkspur, Colorado to see their flawless day, a few words from beautiful bride Kate “We wanted our wedding to be rustic but personal. We wanted thoughtful details that made the event feel like an extension of our home (whiskey tasting, fire pit, yard games). We also love food so serving a beautiful meal to our guests was a top priority!”
I am head over heels for Kate’s ranunculus, anemone, pieris, air plant & pincushion protea bouquet.
Wanting a relaxed reception befitting their rustic celebration, the couple chose to seat their 75 guests at two long farm tables. The wooden tables were set with vintage china, delicate grey runners, and a gorgeous mix of florals in wood boxes, delicate brown bottles, and beautiful smoky glass and stone urns filled with textural and lush blooms in a deep and saturated color palette. Watercolor painted place cards, loose artichokes and beautiful votives finished off the tables perfectly. Overhead, an eclectic mix of Edison bulbs were hung to give the tables a gorgeous glow.
HIRE A PLANNER. Also, listen to your vendors and give them some creative freedom – they’re in this business for a reason and they have amazing knowledge and ideas!
Isn’t it gorgeous?? The mix of colours in those lush florals work so perfctly together! A huge congratulations to the happy newlyweds, and a big thankyou to their photographer Connie Whitlock for not only flawlessly capturing every moment and detail, but also for letting me share her gorgeous images with you here.
