Enchanted Rustic Fall Wedding with Dahlias and Branches

For her wedding Emily dreamed about having an 'enchanted forest’ and somewhat mystical atmosphere that still had an elegant touch. She wanted to have a unique, cozy and warm, yet also natural and intimate look, different from typical weddings. A key center-point here was the two large (8 feet across!) hanging decorations from the ceiling of the tent to create a forest look with dancing lights. We designed them with birch poles, laurel branches, local grown Dahlias, Hydrangeas, Amaranthus and Eucalyptus including hanging lanterns and candles. I think that they came out rather nicely ;)

Further, I really loved her details such as her mom's hand dyed napkins, mom & daughter's paired red shoes and the vintage record album escort cards. In addition to that, her Mimore length gown was just perfect to show off her red flat shoes, and the groom's emerald green & red bow tie were perfectly matched. What an ENCHANTING wedding!
