A Woodland Wedding

When Aleah {from The Good Life Event Specialists} sent me over this Woodland Wedding Theme, I knew I had to share it with you all. From the breathtaking trees to the sweet sentiments, this wedding in the woods was all about style and woodsy romance. I’ll let Aleah take it from here and share her experiences working with this adorable couple, Emily and Ryen:

We worked with Emily and Ryen to pull details from the surrounding forest Emily and her brothers grew up playing in. Being all about nature, the save the dates, place cards, invitations, and programs were brushed with a tree logo to symbolize Emily and Ryen’s story; they met while climbing.

Chock full of amazing details created by Emily’s father were details such as wooden directional signs pointing to “drinks, chapel,” and other fun locales on the property, a custom altar, and an absolutely amazing rustic wooden bar {see last photo}!

Fiddle ferns, moss, and hostas were harvested and incorporated into lush centerpieces.

Keeping with the wedding in the woods theme, we incorporated magical lighting an transformed Emily’s dad’s bar into a cigar and scotch lounge after dinner; check out the elk lamp! To top the night off, we had a rockin’ band play into the night. Having played with some of the biggest names in rock, the Chris Friel Orchestra kept everyone dancing and singing at Emily and Ryen’s own private concert. Congratulations, Emily + Ryen!

    [...] Flowers and greeneries You were definitely thinking of using as many flowers as possible on your wedding day. Nevertheless, you were probably dreaming of black or blue roses, calla lilies, orchids that cost a fortune and so far. Why would you not give a chance to the natural and gorgeous wildflowers that can grow on fields? Take them out of the earth with their roots and move them into some wooden square pots. A rich soil portion with all sorts of colorful, small and delicate flowers, but also with a lot of herbs and greenery can be the most beautiful centerpiece. For a dramatic look, try poppies and for a surprising touch a few sunflowers. Tree moss is yet another thing that can be wisely used for many decors, but mainly with woodland wedding themes. [...]
