Eriko & Roland celebrated their big day in an intimate ceremony at the Gunlach Bundschu Winery in Sonoma, CA. The winery provided the perfect backdrop to the couple’s rustic theme, full of that soft light so sought after by photographers that creates such a sense of timelessness. The color scheme of light pinks and whites with purple accents added to the dreamlike quality of the day. Congrats to Eriko & Roland and a big thank you to White Ivory Photography for the beautiful photos!

In our last post, we highlighted pastel themes and soft, homey decorations in rustic weddings. And while this is one path that you can take, having a rustic wedding in no way means that you have to forego riotous summer colors. Bright accent colors in a rustic environment, especially as part of the bride’s and groom’s attire can really make the bridal party pop and stand out from the distressed wood and earth tones of many rustic wedding venues such as Mountain House. Footwear and boutonnieres are two places that are easy to insert a little color into, as are flower arrangements. Teals, mint greens, and magentas are popular accents at the moment, but fresh sunflowers and fruit can work wonderfully in rustic weddings as well.

Katie & James celebrated their new marriage this June on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee in Moultonborough, NH. They decked out their wedding with rustic details including garden rose bouquets, succulent boutonnieres, and adorable lace flower girl dresses paired with purple cowboy boots. The men’s boutonnieres were mirrored by miniature succulents that doubled as table card holders and gifts for guests. Moss and bird nest centerpieces made a stunning focal point for their reception tables. Glam played a part at the wedding, too, when Katie’s dad drove her up to the ceremony in his red convertible. And we can’t deny, we’re loving Katie’s hints of hot pink that subtly add pizzazz to her classic updo. Best wishes to the Katie & James and a big thank you to Grazier Photography for providing the beautiful photos!
