Are you a bride-to-be looking for wedding inspiration? Look no further! In this blog post, we will be sharing the vision for one couple's dream wedding, set in the beautiful outdoors. From the bohemian groomsmen outfits to the floral bridesmaid dresses, every detail was carefully crafted to create a unique and personalized wedding experience. But how did it all come together on the big day? Read on to find out! And if you're feeling overwhelmed with wedding planning, don't worry we have a top tip from the bride herself to help you stay stress-free.

Tara looked STUNNING in our Haley top and Hannah skirt by Theia. Both the top and bottom are made of the most gorgeous sheet lace with a fun boho pattern. The cropped top has delicate eyelash lace, as do the edges of the beautiful long sleeves. The skirt is a stunning sheath fit that beautifully accentuates the figure.

What was the vision for your wedding?

As a couple who loves the outdoors, there was really no place for our wedding other than the woods, where our hearts are most open and our friends and family could really enjoy themselves. I've always seen beauty in difference so my vision was to create a wedding unique to any other. A little bohemian, a little old fashioned, a little elegant, and a lot of personality. Our vision for groomsmen outfits was boho, mixed with some 70s, and woodsy modern hints which ended up creating the unique look of burgundy pants, tan paisley shirts with touches of dark blue, burgundy miss matched bowties, monogrammed leather suspenders, and custom fly boutonnieres tied by the best man. The groom of course had to stand out with a dark blue tweed vest capturing hints of burgundy and dark brown fancying him the most dapper. Our bridesmaids wore long floral miss matched dresses with blush undertones pulling the eclectic colors together. Every bit of the wedding was detailed to our personalities with DIY table d├ęcor my husband and I put together on a road/wine trip to hobby lobby, a huckleberry themed cake and desserts, and of course a home made comfort dinner of baked chicken, tri-tip, and slow roasted red potatoes. It was everything we could have dreamed of and more, all thanks to our parents.

How did it go the day-of?

The day of the wedding went off without a hitch, which is pretty incredible considering all the working parts. My bridesmaids and I got ready in a small cottage by the lake while the groom and his men got ready in a luxurious "tent" in the woods at the venue. It wasn't until the florist arrived at the cottage with "the hat" however, that the I truly felt it was all real. The venue was incredible and floral arrangements were set to be big, white, and elegant. A gentle breeze moved through the venue as guests arrived tempting the pines to whisper and the free flowing greenery and white accents to create a calming affect of peace and comfort. Our minister was a close family member, uncle to the groom, which allowed for laughter, tears, and a stronger appreciation of words guided by our experiences with one another. Our unity was a champagne toast, which required crowd participation to gain the acceptance of one another, because it was not only us to be married, but our friends and families were becoming one, and would also be responsible for helping these relationships grow. As soon as we said I do, the alter turned into a dance floor and the party went on through the night. My uncle surprised her with the a Honda 110 motorcycle gifted to her not as a get-away ride, but to join her new husband on many more outdoor adventures. This truly was the best day of our lives and luckily we are given the opportunity to relive it, every day, thanks to our wonderful photographer and videographer.

What is your #1 tip to future brides?

The best advice I ever received throughout the process was, "Nobody will know". When you find yourself obsessing over the smallest details, just remember, nobody will know. Nobody knows what you have planned, what may have gone right or wrong, or what changes have tragically detoured from the original concept. So if you remind yourself of this often, the stress will magically dissipate.
