Yes, we said it: wood details! Whether it be wooden slats, rattan, or seagrass, we’ve fallen in love with the versatility and neutral elegance that comes from this natural material. But don’t take our word for it. This sweetly styled shoot photographed by Holly Ireland Photography offers all the inspiration you need to add that bright and bohemian touch to your big day.
GB Weddings & Events took lead on the coordination of the shoot, lending a professional eye to ensure the space felt balanced, elegant, and timeless. With a soft color palette and the natural beauty of Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa as the backdrop, this outdoor affair added a dreamlike quality to each and every detail of the space.
On your big day, all eyes are on you—well, you and your eye-catching statement pieces. For everything wicker, woodsy, and rattan, Folklore and The Hostess Haven provided idyllic rentals that will wow all of your guests. The wooden arch decorated with muted pinks and greens from Green Fresh Florals + Plants offers a tranquil backdrop for you and your S.O. to say “I do.” Plus, hanging jute pendant lamps and candle holders set the scene for a romantic ambiance as the celebration transitions from day to night.
Using organic materials in the design offers the freedom to be creative and to think outside of the box—see the hanging seagrass rug for a perfect example! These natural materials are subtle in color but bold in texture and pattern, allowing room for plenty of eye-catching pieces without overcrowding the space. The result is a romantic ambiance that captures the effortless essence of the rustic- or bohemian-inspired couple.
