Our hearts warmed upon seeing this homegrown backyard woodland wedding

We wanted a forest-themed wedding because of our shared love of nature and the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in which we live. We also wanted to focus on our friends, family, and community. We sought out vendors we knew, the caterer used produce from the farm where Adrienne volunteers. The favors (goat's milk soap) and the flowers both came from vendors at our farmer's market.

So much magic at this butterfly themed wedding in a sculpture garden

Liz and Steven planned a fairy and butterfly themed wedding at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum in Austin, Texas. Liz's late mother was known as "the butterfly lady," so when the pair did a butterfly release after their ceremony, it had a lot of meaning. This was especially so when Liz was covered in the butterflies all over her dress. The symbolism is so sweet.

Don't miss the greenery-covered tables, adorable mini bites at the reception, typewriter guestbook, and Liz's gorgeous tiara!

A little bit retro, a little bit punk: this woodsy Maine wedding has it all

Siobhan and Tom's wedding had a retro feel with just some hints of punk and rock 'n' roll. They were in a pop punk band together in Seattle, so their wedding took some inspiration from their musical background. They also had pizza, donuts, Simpsons references, and seriously gorgeous Maine fall foliage.

Don't miss the macrame backdrop, floral bridesmaids dresses, and mismatched plates…

A handmade Victorian picnic wedding in the mountains (with the most gorgeous rain & mist photos!)

We had a small wedding with only 20 guests, but because it was small, we were able to have all guests participate in the all-white/beige Victorian theme. Most everything was handmade and sourced by us including hand-drawn and printed wooden invitations, bridal party gifts, individually selected vintage tea plates and cutlery, crystal coupe glasses, embroidered napkins, and all decorations.

Get ready for this Gothic Midsummer Night's Dream wedding in a forest

If I had to put a label on it, I would call our wedding a "Gothic Midsummer Night's Dream." We made sure to include a ton of natural and rustic elements like crystals, logs, animal bones, and balanced those raw materials with dark elegant pieces to get that "we just magically threw together a fancy party in the woods" vibe. James and I are both artists, so it only made sense that almost all our decorations/accessories were made by us. Don't miss how we narrowed down our venue search!
