I am so excited to share another ELD Blogiversary inspiration shoot today! These lovely organic wedding ideas, inspired by a clean, classic style and the rustic, organic elements found in Napa Valley, come to us from Hunter Ryan Photo and Kelly Hancock Events and are dreamy, ethereal, and absolutely stunning. Using the bride and groom silhouettes that are seen here on ELD as a detail, and a fresh color palette of green, white, and gold, every last detail of this inspiration is going to take your breath away!
From Kelly of Kelly Hancock Events:
We started with the Silhouettes theme from ELD’s branding and then expounded on it from there. :) Touches of the silhouette are found on the backs of the bride/groom chairs as well as on the couples invitation. The family style wooden farm table with X back farm chairs created a very comfortable element for the setting, and the luxe fabric of the grey linen runner added another touch of elegance, but in a very relaxed way. To glam it up a bit – we mixed gold rimmed china, glassware and silverware with a lush greenery runner adorned with a variety of white florals. Candles, candles and more candles of various sizes filled the table for ambience and the strung lights above the table set against the backdrop of the Lange Farm barn was the perfect touch of lighting once the sun goes down on this classic affair. White calligraphy on pieces of broken slate was used for place cards at the table and each guests menu was hand calligraphed on a white bag housing their personal loaf of bread to take to the “Napa tasting station” for cocktail hour.
The Napa tasting station was set atop wine barrels with lush linens and greenery – completed with clean classic white china. A variety of red/white wines were offered with various cheese pairings, grapes and olive oils to accompany each guests bread loaf. The sweet end to the evening was a beautiful 4 tier hand water-colored and fondant ruffled cake – a masterpiece set atop a wine barrel and dressed with more lush greenery.
We used a real life couple who will tie the knot this coming April! The groom wore a classic black tuxedo with a black bowtie. The bride was dressed in an illusion lace neckline soft tulle skirted gown with no train. Both the bride and grooms attire spoke to the very classic feel we were going for, while not overdoing any elements and keeping it both clean, crisp, simple and yet still comfortable. We wanted brides to really imagine themselves in this setting. Being able to take a barn in the middle of Florida and make it feel Classic, elegant and like it could have taken place anywhere!
I love every single aspect of these rustic, organic wedding ideas! A huge thank you to all of the amazing professionals involved- show them some love in the comments below! :)
