I went to a wedding fair last night to connect with new photographers and vendors. From the looks of it, no matter what the season wedding planning is in full swing. One photographer in particular had a very rustic feel to their photos and booth – they used the same shutter screen as the one found in this ceremony backdrop. Its funny how such a simple object gives some pizzazz to the overall look. I think it matches perfectly with this romantic rustic winery wedding.
I met a lot of rental furniture/decor vendors last night too. Sure, you could rent a shutter screen, but where is the fun in that?! Start perusing Craigslist ads to find that perfect wooden screen. Then buy some chalk paint to make it look aged … and voila! A great DIY project to stay tuned for.
We have a beautiful rustic winery wedding in Northern California. Kira and Steven had been together for over seven years and decided to get married on the day of their 8th anniversary. This gorgeous couple held their ceremony and reception at the Guglielmo Winery in Morgan Hill, which was established in 1925. The ceremony took place in the Heritage Room, which is a great rustic building for a small and intimate wedding. Bloomster’s designed and decorated the event impeccably leaving no detail untouched – from the rustic wood stumps lining the aisle to the romantic candlelit ceremony.
“We focused on the ambiance of our wedding; we wanted it to feel romantic and a true celebration of love. Once we had decided that, we started looking for intimate venues that would fit our vision. When we found our venue, everything just fell into place design wise.”
“Our budget was $25,000. We decided to put our money towards things that mattered to us: photography, flowers/ambiance, and food. We sat down in the beginning of the process and made a very detailed excel spreadsheet of all of the expected costs and once we decided what are budget would be, we stuck to it. It is so easy to go overboard and spend more then you planned.”
“Be present in the moment; it goes by so fast. This is one of the only times in your life that you will have most of the important people in your life in one room, relish in that fact. Things will inevitably not go as planned, but know that at the end of the day everyone will remember how much fun they had and how wonderful your wedding was.”
