Bohemian Wedding

01 Sep Bohemian Wedding

Fall is here…. Well kind of, if you live in Arizona fall constitutes as wearing scarves with tank tops for decoration rather than function, sipping pumpkin spiced lattes ( iced ) and pretending the air was crisp and cold. Never the less we can appreciate the sweater weather and leaves falling from afar and all that regions with true fall weather get to enjoy!

 

Liz and I both had spring weddings to we jumped at the opportunity to collaborate on a Boho wedding styled shoot with warm fall hues. Coordinator Michelle was inspired by Australian Wedding blogs and chose a color pallet of wine, forest green, creams, and gold to set the tone for this bohemian dream wedding.

Set in the Secret Garden at ASU surrounded by one of the oldest buildings on campus the whimsy of the trees complimented the bold structures of this historic building that wraps around on all four sides leaving a grassy wonderland in a desert-filled state . Wood details mixed with ornate gold décor accompanied lace accents and delicate paper goods.

Below are some of our hand crafted goodies that helped to add a personal touch to the sweetheart and dessert tables.

Intricate cut napkin rings doubling as place cards with gold calligraphy is a Shiki fave! We are big believers in making your wedding as personal as possible and these sweet place cards are just the detail to accomplish that and round out your table scape.

Triangle bunting framed the sweetheart table making for a whimsical backdrop with the perfect pop of color. Hand painted Mr & Mrs wood signs were draped on the trees next to the lacy sweetheart table covered with the most stunning floral arrangement by Golden Gate Flowers accompanied by vintage arm chairs.

 One of my favorite aspects of this reception was the sweets table. Bear and Honey provided the most delectable naked rustic cake { Yes I got to try some, don’t have to ask me twice } and darling hand painted cookies. We created custom signs reading “Love is Sweet” and ” Sweet Treats” with glittered paper for added fun and clusters of paper eucalyptus leaves for dimension. The signs were held up by oversized wooden spools. Floral porcelain cake stands, plates, and tea cups added a feminine frill and the potted succulent was the “icing on the cake.”
