We love the simplicity of this light and airy welcome dinner where Erich McVey and Ginny Au started their inspiring journey with each workshop attendee. This stunning dinner set the tone for a week full of beauty, and we would love to see some of these ideas translated into a real wedding. Take cues from Sarah Winward and forage for wildflowers and greenery to create truly organic and simple decor (bonus: you save money!).

More from Ginny Au on the welcome dinner:

Welcoming the Erich McVey Workshop attendees to Coffey’s Cove Ranch, Sarah Winward foraged wild flowers and foliage found around the property to decorate the tables and the barn. 12th Table in Nashville sent beautiful linens, flatware, glasses and farm plates for the simple and natural table design. The final touch was organic place cards and menus featuring the calligraphy of Meghan Kay Sadler.
