Brides, it’s time to embrace the wild. This real wedding evokes a sense of overgrown wildness with a distinctly bohemian take on rustic wedding styling, and we love it. Perfectly un-contained florals, fresh produce lining the tables, and a rich, warm color palette create an inviting, comfortable atmosphere that is just so delicious for summer.
Read on for more details from the wedding planners, Bash Please:
“Our clients came to us having already selected their venue, the gorgeous Front Porch Farm on the Russian River. It was the perfect setting to bring their rustic and down-to-earth vision to life! Our goal was to incorporate the bride’s California native vibe and the groom’s Argentinian flair. They both share a love of travel and the great outdoors, so we wanted to create an experience for their guests that was both romantic and wild.
Guests arrived to the farm and were shuttled to the bank of the river where they were greeted with parasols, Aperol spritzes and a panoramic view of the Russian River. An organic chuppah structure was built to host the couple’s heartfelt and unique ceremony, accompanied by a dear friend on the guitar. The bride and bridesmaid’s walked down the straw-covered aisle carrying bouquets made of rustic vines, edibles and blooms, all foraged from the farm.
Immediately following the ceremony, guests were handed hand-dyed flags and paraded down a gravel road from the river to the farm lawn for cocktail hour. It was quite the site to see!
The escort card display was covered in wild vines, blackberry bundles and apples freshly plucked from the garden. Studio Choo did a killer job incorporating local floral and fauna into the design. This motif carried it’s way through to dinner where guests dined at candle-filled communal tables for a family style feast. Lounges were draped in vibrant Argentinian tapestries purchased by the groom’s sister and adirondack chairs were brought in for guests to sit and enjoy the stars after dinner.
Dinner led into an epic dance party and ended with an intimate hang session of acoustic music, whiskey and sliders around the farm’s fire pit. Local peach preserves with custom labels were waiting for guests upon their exit. The perfect send off to a super sweet weekend!”
