What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

These chic plaid wedding ideas were inspired by a bold plaid bow tie and a couple wanting a blend of modern and rustic style for their wedding, and are perfect for a Fall or Winter wedding! Pairing modern touches (like iPads as signs for tables and a chic wedding invitation by Simply Designed) with traditional elements created a wedding design that is just full of inspiration, and Rachael Foster Photography captured it all beautifully!

From Rachael:

We crafted this engagement and wedding styled shoot for the DC couple with half their heart in Virginia wine country. Our inspiration began with a colorful take on the classic, plaid bow tie. With it’s historic roots and strong geometric patterns, a bold plaid makes a happy marriage of vintage tradition and contemporary style. We envisioned a couple seeking this fresh blend of modern and rustic, a couple who might use an iPad on their dessert table, screen-printed slate for dinner menus, and vintage wine barrels for the bar. Meet “Emily and Andrew”. Emily and Andrew may have downtown careers, but they love to get out to the country on the weekends. They’re adventurous foodies who still love old family recipes and jump at the chance to mix grandma’s antiques with curtains from West Elm and Z Gallerie. When it comes to their wedding, they can’t imagine the day without their beloved Siberian Husky. Some curious cows and a little dusting of late spring snow set the scene for these animal lovers and their sweet pup.

I just love the bold colors and the use of plaid! The bride’s look is absolutely fabulous… and isn’t the husky absolutely adorable? Heart. Melting.

Have you ever considered using a pattern like plaid (or stripes or anything else) as the inspiration for your own wedding? What pattern do you love that you would consider using?

With this being the last week of Fall, I decided that I wanted to feature all of the Fall wedding goodness that I could get my hands on! Today’s Fall wedding is rustic and takes place on a Utah ranch, and it comes to us from Pepper Nix Photography! From horseshoe decor elements and stunning hanging florals, to breathtaking mountain views and amazing details, this wedding has inspiration around every corner! The gorgeous bride, Kate, is here with us today to share about her wedding planning experience:

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

My family was so helpful in helping me plan for our wedding. My mom and my mother in law had so much fun wedding planning and they really made all my wedding dreams come true. My handsome groom was not very interested in all the little details so the moms, my sister to be, and I had a great time planning every last detail for the wedding. I also had so much fun with my bridal party and sharing the details of our wedding day and celebrating my shower and bachelorette with them made the whole year feel like a celebration.

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

We really wanted to enjoy planning so we picked people to work with that were fun to be around. Everyone that we encountered or heard about seemed like they were so talented and great at their work, so it just came down to working with people who we clicked with. I knew we had made a good choice with our photographer, Pepper Nix, when she invited us for a beer prior to our engagement photos. It was so great to know our details were in great hands, especially being so far from our venue.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

When we found our venue, I knew immediately we were in the right spot and I wanted everything to be about the beautiful outdoors. We highlighted the beautiful scenery of the rustic ranch incorporated lace and delicate décor.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

My favorite thing about the wedding was definitely celebrating with family and friends. Even though we both knew how lucky we were to have such great friends and family before our wedding, we could not have imagined how special our wedding day would be. We were so touched and overwhelmed by how excited everyone was to celebrate with us and how much love we felt that day!

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

My advice would be to go with what makes you and your future husband feel good. It’s easy to over analyze and get caught up in the details, but everything will be perfect in its own way on your special day. We made the choice to get married half a country away from where we live, and I wouldn’t change a thing. Our friends and family were happy to see a place we loved and celebrate our love with us and that was the sweetest thing of all.

I love that Kate and her groom chose to have a destination wedding at a location that they held close to their hearts. It turned out quite gorgeous, don’t you think?
