Styled Rustic Outdoor Barn Wedding

Today, we are sharing an absolutely breathtaking styled shoot all the way from Colorado!

Nestled within the mountains, this historic venue houses a rustic log barn which is a stunning accompaniment to Wild Canyon Ranch. Within this venue, you’ll find panoramic views of golden fields, a quaint pond, and flourishing forests filled with an aromatic array of pine and aspen trees.

If you have your sights set on a barn wedding, this inspiration will surely make you run to your Pinterest boards. The bride’s long, flowing vintage veil is a perfect match for the intricate details within her wedding dress.  Perfect for spring and summer, we also love the varying green hues, pops of pink, and creamy white colors within their wedding decorations. Both rustic and chic, are could stare at this styled shoot for hours.

Pink Wedding Ideas inspired by Rose Quartz

Introducing Rose Quartz, one of the PANTONE Colors of the Year 2016. Every year a new PANTONE color is featured, influencing fashion, design and wedding industries. As we’re settling into the New Year, we’re excited to show you a theme in a warmer rose tone: Rose Quartz.

Rose Quartz is stunning when combined with light pinks, creams and grays. Paint your wedding day with this sensational color with flowy fabrics, layered frosting and flowers with lots of petals. There is something so feminine and dainty about this soft, pink wedding.

We love this wedding invitation in Rose Quartz because it’s classic with an elegant font.

It’s all in the details. Here’s how you can paint your wedding day in this rose color:

Signature Cocktail
Have a little fun with your drinks. Mix raspberry lemonade with citrus-flavored vodka and garnish with a mint leaf for a Rose Quartz wedding cocktail. Add your mixture to a gold-rimmed glass for a sweet look.

Straws
Accessorize your drinks with colorful straws. Paper straws are all the trend right now with all their colors and fun designs. Add straws to your cocktails to give them more style or offer them before the ceremony for your welcome drinks.

Bride
These days wedding dresses don’t have to be white or ivory—try a blush gown. When it’s your wedding, there are no rules. Find ruffles and layers of flowy chiffon in soft pinks for a dress that matches your style.

Chair
Add lightweight Rose Quartz fabric to your venue by draping it on the back of your head table chairs. This is a great look for your photos when your photographer captures the new couple seated for dinner and the toasts.

Groom
Personality is all in the tie. Let it be a solid pink color for a classic wedding, or polka dot or checkered for a fun rustic wedding. Find ties that match your theme and style, and remember to use your other colors—creams and grays—for the groom’s suite and boutonniere.

Quartz Stones
Add style to your flower arrangements by filling the bottom of your vases with rose-colored quartz stones. These stones also create a romantic ambiance in bowls filled with water and floating candles—a lovely look for a beach wedding.

Cake
Create an eye-catching (and edible) centerpiece by repeating the textures and colors of your dress and chair decor for your cake. Layers of frosting petals in Rose Quartz create an elegant look that matches your pink wedding theme.

Bring this new Color of the Year to life, adding in creams and grays for balance. All the elements of your day, like your cake, chairs, dress and cocktails, will look so lovely when you find just the right decor and DIY crafts to dress up your rosy-inspired day. This color will have all your guests blushing!

Pink and Orange Wedding Theme Ideas

From luscious pink flowers to a colorful orange ómbre cake, pink and coral never looked so good together. Saturated colors in fuchsia, rouge, rose, peach and coral make a beautiful combination for a pink and orange wedding theme. Dress your bridesmaids in hues that are fun and bright, and add textures and patterns to your wedding theme for an eye-catching ceremony and reception with depth.

Get your guests excited about your pink and coral theme with these lacy invitations. Their laser-cut design is a work of art—a keepsake your guests will cherish.

Flowers
Big blooms are a dramatic way to show off your colors. Give your arrangements a fun look with pops of fuchsia and bright pink flowers. Besides choosing wedding flowers based on your color theme, think about which flowers best represent your style—classic roses, rustic wild flowers, etc.

Lace
Dress up your decor with lacy details. Lace is a versatile fabric that adds a delicate pattern to decor, favors, chairs, tables and even your bridesmaids’ dresses. With so many different styles of lace, find the one that fits your classic, rustic or vintage style.

Bridesmaids
Create a beautiful textured and colorful look with mix-match bridesmaid dresses. A popular trend right now is having bridesmaids choose their own dresses. By letting your bridesmaids find their dress (with your color theme and style in mind) they find one they love and within their budget.

Tissue Poms
Nothing says “party” like big balloons. These paper honeycomb balloons give helium balloons a run for their money. They’ll add texture and color to your venue, as well as a festive party feel. To add more “wow” to your paper balloons, add hanging pom pom streamers. Here is a how-to tutorial: Geronimo Inspired Pom Pom Tutorial.

Bouquet
Out of all the wedding flowers, a bride’s bouquet is the most personal and important flower arrangement. It is the bouquet that is special and unique to each bride. For something that stands out, leave the greenery for the bridesmaids and table arrangements. Have a bouquet created that is filled with gorgeous peonies and garden roses.

Cake
Make your wedding cake beautiful eye-candy for guests to gaze at. For the lovely cake decor, add delicate frosted flowers that are colored with pink and orange, for a lavish ombre effect. For a cohesive look, use the same types of flowers in your flower arrangements.

Cake Slice
Pink ombre really takes the cake. It’s a beautiful way to showcase the gradation of your color theme. Take this cake for example: Each layer uses a different color of pink, from rose to watermelon pinks. Cutting into this cake makes for a big, beautiful surprise.

We can’t stop swooning over this color combo. So if you are dreaming of a spring or summer wedding, consider orange and pink in your wedding theme! Don’t leave any details behind, and infuse this pink and coral theme into your flowers, table decor, and wedding cake, to give your wedding something wonderfully spectacular.

Autumn Wedding in Asheville

Today, we are so happy to be sharing this adorable Southern wedding with ya’ll. Alex and Windsor first fell in love while attending Harvard! Though the currently reside in Boston, they held their wedding back in Windsor’s hometown of Asheville, North Carolina.

These lovebirds had their wedding start off with a traditional church ceremony in the morning, a chic brunch in downtown Asheville during the afternoon, and finished with a backyard BBQ in Windsor’s childhood home during the evening. If you enjoy a gorgeous wedding with a fun twist, you will definitely enjoy exploring these wedding pictures. Who doesn’t love s’mores and southern rock music? This wedding is the epitome of a perfect summer night, or some wonderful rustic, autumn inspiration.
