A Wedding In The Woods

I’m so excited to share with you photos from a wonderful wedding we had the privilege of decorating in September.  Betsy and Tom were married in a gorgeous wooded area in Tipton.  The setting was so peaceful and serene…absolutely perfect for a wedding!

Mother Nature… who has a mind of her own… decided to put us all to the test this weekend.  Of course  with any outdoor venue you know to expect she might not play by the rules.  Not to worry though, as the tents went up and the entire woods was transformed into a romantic venue perfect for a celebration.

The area was quite large, so we worked on ways to separate spaces using fabric strip banners between trees and pennant markers created with various lace and vintage fabrics to line pathways.

Vintage doors, church pews and burlap draping  were used at the entrance of the tent, along with several antique buckets filled with baby’s breath.

For the reception, tables were covered with either a burlap or lace runner.  Each table had a grouping of vintage bottles and silver pieces, along with cake plates collected by the family and vintage silver trays.  Votives decorated with twine, buttons, lace and burlap completed the setting.  The fresh flowers were provided by Circle City Designers of Carmel.   

Large white lights and groupings of tea-stained paper floral balls adorned the ceiling adding to the soft, romantic vintage look.

In a tent next to the reception, we set up a great lounge area full of vintage furniture pieces, along with a photo booth created from various old doors.  Old hats, frames and a Polaroid camera made for great entertainment throughout the evening!

Thank you so much Lauren and Robert for you generosity!

I had a very fulfilling experience working on this wedding.  Betsy and her family were genuine and kind, and incredibly flexible with Mother Nature!
