Romantic Boho Chic Yet Classic Wedding Day Ideas

Hey, Divas! There’s not a better way we can think of sailing into the Memorial Day weekend than with this boho chic yet classic wedding day hosted at The Omni Homestead Resort in the mountains of Virginia. This wedding inspiration is as every bit vintage as it is voguish. If you like the idea of keeping your wedding day simple yet full of beauty then this inspo is just for you.

From the Bride…

I had a boho-chic yet classic and elegant vision for our big day, and my parents, florist, bridesmaids, and resort staff made this the most beautiful reality. I also have known since I was a child that I was going to wear my mothers dress, which her mother wore as well. We are all “Rebeccas” and it was an incredibly special feeling to carry on the tradition. As John likes to say, he did his duty by proposing, and while he had a few specific things he envisioned, he mostly stepped back and wanted July 25, 2015 to be the wedding day of my dreams, which speaks to his truly kind and generous character.

How did the two of you meet?

John and I had a true twenty-first century courtship. It began from afar on twitter, Instagram and eventually Facebook through mutual friends – Like after Like after Favorite after reply. Eventually we got together with these mutual friends and the rest is pretty much history. I knew the second week we were together that I wanted to marry him, and although I think it took him a little longer my instincts sure were correct. When John proposed on the porch at his parents’ house, where it all began, I was shocked, elated, and immediately informed him that it was my dream to have our wedding at The Homestead.

From the Photographer…

Let me just start by saying Rebecca + John’s wedding was spectacular. It felt like a fairy tale. I think it would be hard to find a much more beautiful setting for such a special day than The Omni Homestead Resort in the mountains of Virginia. It was the end of July, but the weather was so perfect that it felt like early fall.

Blue and Gold Outdoor Wedding on a Winery

Today, we are swooning over this stunning wedding on a winery. If you are familiar with California wine country, you may have seen this famous venue nestled alongside Napa. This sweet couple wanted something light and airy, that would be as equally relaxed as it was romantic. Utilizing whimsical blue and gold colors helped them achieve their spectacular wedding vision!

From the gold Chiavari chairs to the pastel blue tablecloths, we can’t take our eyes off of how refined this wonderful wedding is. The gold-rimmed glassware and chic gold chargers perfectly complement the tone of the party; and the purple grapes along the tables are a fun homage to their rustic winery venue.

One of our favorite pieces from their big day was the bride’s gown, which had a dramatic low back, and elegant lace throughout. Her chic bridesmaids wore champagne dresses to match the overall blue and gold wedding theme. Their pastel blue and cream wedding invitations also helped set the tone for their big day. Sophisticated and playful, it was the perfect invite for their needs.

A DIY Rustic Wedding at Rockwater Secret Cove Resort

Today, we are so excited to be sharing one of the most rustic wedding venue locations in British Columbia! Rockwater Secret Cove Resort is a waterfront resort, located on the Sunshine Coast. It’s right on the ocean with massive rock cliffs, a forest, and rocky beaches. I

Andrea and Tyler wanted to have a DIY wedding, so Andrea and her family made all of the amazing details throughout the entire venue, from the centerpieces, to all of the signs throughout the venue. Explore rustic wedding invitations to match your big day!

 

Words from the Bride:

Rockwater is very special place for us. Tyler’s parents have a second home just minutes away, and we boat by Rockwater fairly often too.  During our first few months of dating, we stayed at Rockwater on our first trip to the Sunshine Coast, and I had thought it as a perfect wedding location.

Tyler proposed (it was a total surprise) while we were out on a nearby walk at Smugglers Cove. He had already made plans for lunch at Rockwater (knowing it was a top choice for the wedding). We were sad at first, realizing the resort had a buyout policy all summer-  which we knew wouldn’t be possible when we wanted a smaller, more intimate wedding.  However, we were so lucky- they had a Sunday exception they could make work! I made nearly every decor item by hand, with the woodwork help of my handy father and grandfather. Together, we built and painted items including: lawn games, chalkboard signs, driftwood signs, re-sized wine boxes, a photo booth with props, crates, etc. I was determined to make my dream wedding fit within the budget!

Spring Wedding Colors in a Bay Area Winery

Today, we are so overjoyed to be sharing Alex and Sara’s amazing day. While their vibrant wedding favored an overall yellow and grey wedding theme, their entire event was filled with an abundance of pretty spring wedding colors! We love how chic their rustic, chalkboard wedding invitations looked at their winery wedding.

From The Bride:

Alex and I first laid eyes on each other in high school- we were only 15! We were on our way to a Sadie’s Hawkins dance and met during the proverbial “picture taking” beforehand at a mutual friend’s house. We weren’t each others’ dates but should have been with all the flirting we were doing.

We became high school sweethearts, but then decided to go our separate ways in college to do some (much needed!) growing up. Near the end of college our paths managed to cross again; and we’ve been together ever since.

I wanted to make sure that our wedding had a lot of special details. My “Something borrowed” was the pair of earrings my older sister wore back on her wedding day. I think they were great luck! For the reception, I had my dad build a custom seating assignment chart. It was a 6×8 ft board with a sign instructing guests to “Trace Your Roots to Sara and Alex”. The roots spread out across the entire board, and each root represented a special part of Alex’s and my life. For example, “Chi Omega” was the grouping for all my sorority sisters, “Liman” (the street Alex lived on in college) was the grouping for his college roommates. We also had a special section at the venue to show a “Family Tree” of marriages. We framed our grandparents and parents wedding photos, all coming together in the middle with one of our engagement pictures. We could not have been more excited to share our special day will all of our amazing loved ones!
