Inspired by their favourite European locations, Brittany and Brett set out to host an intimate outdoor wedding in California. A focus on fantastic food and creating a warm, cosy atmosphere led to a family-style dinner with their small guest list seated together at one table. With a family-style meal, there is minimal space for decor, so we love the choice to add in a colored linen table runner, adding some personality to the overall tablescape. Twinkling candles and a smaller greenery centrepiece complete the look.

Simple weddings are absolutely my favorite! Jen, you did an amazing job at capturing the raw simplicity and elegance of that day. Incredible!

This family style dinner is the stuff dreams are made of! I love discussing service styles with my couples as a way to set the tone. Family style is what I’d love to use at my own wedding as a way to instantly make it feel more intimate. Even when you can’t pare down your guest list to just those who can fit around a single table, family style service makes even a large gathering feel more personal + warm.

It’s hard to really see the table runner mentioned. I do like how there are snacks and goodies family-style on the runner.

We all see them. Those people who just seem to “get it.” The enviable style that we see in “those people” could be yours, too.
