TBT: A Rustic Wedding in the Garden

I wanted to share some beautiful details from a wedding a few months back.  It was simple but full of great ideas.  Like the place cards:


I loved how string, clothespins, and pieces of paper created a beautiful-yet-functional display.  The outdoor venue is beautiful.


It had a beautiful open atrium using rustic wooden beams.  It is such a beautiful outdoor space.


Think outside of the box for photobooth props; a galvanized letter will be perfect in photos. 


The groom made wood pieces for the centerpieces.  He made round ones and he also made this long wooden one:


Gorgeous, right?!  I am a fan of the eclectic jars and single blooms.


The table numbers were designed to match the place cards and there were Throwback photos of the couple at each table.  Each number symbolized something for the couple and there was a write-up explaining what.  For example, table number could coincide with age or grade, or table 4 would have a photo of the bride with 4 teeth missing in the second grade - haha.


I was able to provide the floral designs for the cake. I love how the flowers are classic and whimsy.


I created a halo of greenery around the perimeter of the cake plate before putting the cake on 


The key to rustic floral arrangements is to focus less on blooms and more on greenery and filler.  The goal is to have a 'picked from a field' appearance.


It was fun styling the cake and I love the mix of the lace tablecloth with the greenery and dahlias.


This casual and elegant wedding was sure to be a beautiful and fun day for the bride and groom!  Happy Throwback Thursday!  Who doesn't love a good #tbt?!
