Relaxed, Bohemian Barn Wedding in Canada

Posted by Kim on Apr 17, 2013

Caitlin & Jeff

September 8

Ontario, Canada

~~~~~~~~

From the Photographer:

“I was very excited to shoot Caitlin and Jeff’s wedding knowing that it was going to be just a little different than the traditional. We eagerly arrived early afternoon at the family farm, and we knew immediately we were in for a treat from how calm everyone was, even the dogs, who greeted us. The ceremony was held on the front lawn – the location held a special place in the couple’s hearts. Caitlin and Jeff arrived at the outdoor reception in a candy red vintage ford. By then, the clouds had lifted, guests mingled amongst the hand-picked and crafted vintage decor and the tent was glowing with garden lights, colorful bunting,  hay bails, and eclectic seating at each table.

There was a certain magic in the air that evening that I can’t really describe, you could feel the love. It was  like we were attending a long overdue family reunion more than a wedding and thats the way Caitlin and Jeff wanted it. Guests were treated to a superb meal from a local catering company buffet with an build your own appetizer burrito station, to endless gourmet salads and corn on the cob to top it off. It seemed like the buffets went on forever.  A homemade pie station ended the perfect meal.

After dinner, everyone’s hearts filled up with touching speeches (I think the photographers even cried!), we saw people hugging, smiling, and lots of watery eyes.  A little fire pit outside kept people cozy while everyone danced without any hesitation. You could hear the laughter and guests singing out loud until it was time for us to wrap up and head home. We ended the night with one last shot – the bride and groom in a bohemian tent under the stars. Everything was perfect.” – Clint Russell of Renaissance Studios Photography

Hilary & Kevin

February 24

Santa Teresa, Costa Rica

~~~~~~~~

From the Photographer: “Hilary and Kevin hail from Texas where they met while working at Neiman Marcus. Many people think that all destination weddings end up having a very similar tropical color scheme, but the reality is – your wedding should incorporate the colors that speak to you and that you love. Hilary created a really pretty yellow and gray color scheme and bucked that tropical trend. And it turned out gorgeous! 

The ceremony was in such a unique spot – a coconut grove. The couple said their “I do’s” under an arch that was handmade from driftwood and incorporated that lovely sunny yellow color in the sunflowers and gerberas. To quench their guests’ thirst, the couple offered Coco Locos, a drink of local coconuts and Costa Rican rum. Delish! All the decor pieces had a “found object-ness” about them – from hand-painted driftwood signs to recycled mason jars with candles that hung in the trees.

We adored the kids’ table – so much fun with crayons, glitter, paints, stickers, you name it! The kids were kept busy all night and had a grand time! They also had a babysitter who looked after them all so that the parents could really have a fun time, too.

The seating chart was such a unique idea. It was an old wooden ladder with jute rope – the place cards were held on by clothespins. It looked so divine. We really loved the bridesmaid dresses that brought in that fun yellow again and flowers too. Again the couple bucked the trend and told the bridesmaids that they could pick any dress they wanted that reflected their own personality, the only stipulation was that it was in the same color scheme – and the flower girls were beyond adorable in their Crewcuts by J.Crew dresses. Hilary stole the show in head-to-toe BHLDN – she looked amazing yet not fussy. She was able to enjoy walking on the beach and dancing the night away in her beautiful dress, perfect for a destination wedding.” – A Brit & A Blonde

BOHO Style Shoot Wedding Inspiration

Posted by Jeffra on Oct 05, 2011

We recently featured the Glam style shoot by this group of very talented Wedding Vendors. If you missed it, check it out here: Modern Retro Wedding Inspiration Shoot. I was really excited to feature part II of their style shoot inspiration because this BOHO design is fabulous and such a popular trend right now. This style is not for everyone, but if you’re doing a more low-key wedding and want it to resemble something out of the 60’s with a modern day twist, this is for you. The concept of dull tones with vibrant hues is a classic combination, but when you mix it with vintage gowns, and relaxed groom attire you get a completely unique style, and one that you could undoubtedly make your own. A big thanks to the Entwined 2012 vendors for sharing this with us!
