Real Wedding ~ Elizabeth and Michael

With a soft pastel palette mixed with a few bold decor elements, Elizabeth and Michael tied the knot in a rustic Southern affair at Vista West Ranch photographed by Caroline Joy Photography. The stunning bride wore a pretty strapless fitted gown with flared skirt featuring swirled organza detailing and beaded flower bodice. Elizabeth accessorized her romantic look with a pair of ivory slingbacks and long cathedral length veil that sat over her softly curled dark locks. Her bridesmaids all wore white Summer dresses of their choice, but tied together their looks with smaller versions of Elizabeth's bouquet of mixed pastel blooms. The groomsmen wore black suits with white button downs and moss green patterned ties. The ceremony took place outside on the grounds of the ranch. Deep brown chairs lined either side of the pathway leading up to the spectacular arbor adorned with branches and tiny blooms. Small muted yellow glass votives hung from the ceiling of the arbor as well as two brilliant golden yellow chandeliers that framed the couple as they exchanged their vows in front of family and friends outdoors.

A painted weathered wood sign reading "Just Married," sat outside of the barn where the reception took place. Outside a clothesline of place cards hung between two trees featuring brown cardstock with lace trimmed paper on top reading the guest's name and each adorned with a small green flower. Inside the barn the aged tin and stained concrete floors showcased the rustic setting of the ranch adding an understated charm to the reception. Round guest tables were draped in muted khaki linens with handmade luminaries of patterned paper in a variety of green and brown hues with the table numbers etched out. Florist Petal Pushers created a variety of small centerpieces for the tables using blooms in the soft event palette, including peonies, roses, baby's breath, sweat peas and ranunculus. Unique recycled vessels of bottles and jars sat on each tabletop adorned with the pretty pastel flowers. Elizabeth and Michael's sweetheart table was situated in the middle of the room and covered with a beautiful lace overlay with the couple's initials covered in moss as decoration. Woven branched lanterns and strands of garden lights adorned the ceiling and provided a warm glow in the room as guests danced into the evening. Don't miss a single detail of Elizabeth and Michael's charming rustic wedding, including their three tier ivory confection that was framed by dark brown branches with hanging votives on either side.
