I've said it before, and will continue to sing their praises from the mountaintops, but styled shoots are some of my favorite features! Why? Because not only does a group of local friends get to come together with a common vision, and see it come to life... but also each wedding vendor gets to share their talents with the world. This Upstate New York modern bohemian wedding inspiration from Jenny Haury is both of those, and boy, is it gorgeous! From the incredible hand lettering of Handmade Darling and the curated vintage pieces from Pretty Little Vintage Co, to the stunning florals from Asherwood Florist, every detail is more gorgeous than the next! I'll be here dreaming of my next visit upstate... enjoy, friends!
From Briana: We heard the word "bohemian" a whole bunch this past wedding season while brides and grooms were telling us about their wedding style. When we think of bohemian weddings, we imagine perfectly-imperfect design, macrame, mismatched details, nature, colorful floral, laid back and casual vibes and all things non-traditional. Of course we love all of those things and wanted to create a version of this with a Pretty Little Vintage Co. twist.
As you scroll through, you'll see our mismatched chairs, lots of woods and whites with some little vintage details. We wanted to use some bright colors but also a lot of natural wood and neutral tones. All of our ideas came together and if you're asking me, the outcome was beautiful. We had some new inventory (rolling white bars, holly hutch, big warehouse windows) at this shoot that we wanted to feature and it just might be one of our favorite styled shoots of all time. We hope that you love it as much as we do.
We love things that don't match. When we started this business, a mismatched chair collection was something that we knew we had to have. Non-traditional and so unique, this bohemian wedding had to have them. Also, I hope ceremony rugs never go out of style.
A spin on the traditional cake table - we used our "Holly" hutch as a statement piece to create the most beautiful cookie display. Guests had the choice to take some for now or take some home for later. See that gorgeous, hand-lettered mirror? My super talented friend, Rachel from Handmade Darling lettered the invitation suite, seating chart and signs throughout this shoot. Be sure too look closely and follow her amazing work.
Mismatched woods and whites set the scene for this gorgeous tablescape. We wanted to add in soft florals and goblets for that color that we crave with metal accents shining through in our flatware and brass candlesticks. Kevin from Sherwood florist used soft pink and cream roses with a whole bunch of eucalyptus. We added antlers for that natural boho detail.
Definitely, an all time favorite. What's not to love here?!
After the ceremony, where do your guests go? To the bar. So we always plan to make it beautiful and use the opportunity to add your personal style and signature drinks to the decor.
A table for the newlyweds. If you choose to sit with your sweetheart on your wedding day, there are so many ways to make it extra special.
Custom Gift Boxes
Everyone talks about carrying your style, details and theme throughout your whole event. Kelly from Bella Box Gifts created this PERFECT welcome box for wedding guests. The signature drinks for this wedding were moscow and kentucky mules. Kelly personalized these boxes and carefully selected items that would complement the wedding theme and colors. These curated gift boxes were a great excuse to start the celebration early while thanking guests for coming to the wedding.
Accent decor and vignettes help to fill the empty spaces in venues and around your reception. Little details are our favorite and we used mixed metals and soft floral to creative that cohesiveness we so love.
We picked up four of these gorgeous chippy white windows and just knew that they would make an amazing seating chart display. Can you imagine all four windows displayed together? I can't wait for that wedding. Rachel from Handmade Darling lettered the seating assignments on one of our old windows and it was a stunning detail in this display. Things that go really well together? Floral, hand-lettering and vintage rentals. Wouldn't you agree? Also, desserts. Always, desserts.
