Boho Chic Wedding Ideas

We fell in love with every bit of this boho chic inspiration shoot by Petula Pea Photography the instant we saw it.  The subtle and soft pretty pastel palette, the breezy outdoor setting and the eclectic mix of vintage mismatched decor are absolutely dreamy. The decadent petal style wedding cake, the country rustic touches and the beautiful boho headpieces really make a boho chic theme simply irresistible. But the stand-out detail for me, is the gorgeous bohemian style gown by D’Marie Couture – simply stunning! There are so many fab ideas in this shoot to take in, your wedding inspiration meter will be in hippie-pretty overdrive once you reach the end!

From the Event Co-ordinator: A boho chic bride is inspired by nature, loves spending time outdoors, enjoys the simple things in life, and has a free spirit admired by others. The boho chic bride steers away from the traditional style of wedding dress. Instead, she opts for a flowing, lightweight gown with a great neckline (like the halter style featured with a single fabric rose replacing flashy embellishments).

A beautiful headpiece is a must for the bohemian bride. You can add touch of sparkle to a floral headband for a modern twist; or for a more classic boho look, wearing a long flowery headpiece is perfect. {Just like the floral headpiece featured in this shoot. An original by Whichgoose, worn by photographer Patty, on her own wedding day in 2009}.

Rustic, vintage furniture pairs beautifully with boho chic style. The hand-built doorway is an original ceremony backdrop and signifies an opening to a new adventure. The weathered nightstand is a great contrast against the delicate rose petal cake, and the drawers and shelves filled with trinkets represent family heirlooms.

Mismatched chairs are a fun way to mix-up the guest tables and using vintage picture frames to display table numbers gives the tables a creative touch. We added layers of textures and colors to the table for dimension, along with patterned plates and mismatched glasses to compliment the outdoor canvas. Lastly, low floral arrangements of various heights were added to create a soft, romantic look without overdoing it.

Romantic Country Wedding Ideas

Up next is an inspiration shoot captured by Alea Lovely Fine Art Photographer which takes your typical rustic country wedding theme, infuses it with a whole-lot-of romantic style and classical old world elegance. With sherbet hued florals by the Victorian Gardens, a stylish invitation suite by Announce This, a gorgeous array of pastel ombre cakes by Classic Cakes and a beautiful gown by Ivy & Aster with a beaded cape we are sighing over, this shoot is not only bursting with fabulous ideas but writes a whole new chapter on vintage country chic and we’re LOVING it to bits! 

From photographer Alea: A little bit of country, a little bit of elegance. I am from the Midwest and wanted to show a new way to do a Midwestern affair. We got away from the rustic look and found a more romantic way to fit this wedding. With bright colors and eye catching details, my team and I put together a styled shoot that a bride from any region could get on board with.

I loved the cake table. The three cakes with ombre details and soft pastels was a new spin on the traditional one cake. Stunning florals accented the unfinished wooden top table and the “bride and groom” mannequins brought a very unique accent to the table. The dress by Ivy and Aster was a great complement to the shoot. I was going for something elegant that could also be very casual. With laser cut layers and a gorgeously detailed beaded cape, it was a super light and airy gown and also perfectly falls in line with the bridal fashion trending right now. I had her hair done with lighter extensions to accentuate the ombre in her hair. Our hair stylist created gorgeous curls that looked effortless in the wind, and we gave her a rusted golden hair piece to pin back her hair, a nice accessory that wasn’t too overbearing. She wore flat gold tin earrings that complemented her hair, and bronzy makeup.

The ceremony area was in an open field with the center stage being wooden poles, much like you see on a country home, and decorated with florals and hay like accents. I chose mismatched chairs as a fun way to play up an intimate ceremony. The reception table was a worn blue table and we used purple napkins to contrast the colors of the florals. Old silverware was placed next to the gold-lined plates for a subtle juxtaposition of classic and antique. There were great food details like the mini open fruit pies, pecan desserts, and a peach signature drink with actual sliced peaches in it. The invites were watercolor with a modern approach to the RSVP card.

Aqua & Peach Wedding Inspiration

This pretty colour combo of Aqua and Peach is an up and coming colour trend for weddings at the moment. The cool and modern hues of aqua against with the soft, blushing tones of peach make a gorgeous Summer or Spring palette. I think it’s an absolute winner! What’s more, I’m sure it will stay around as a popular choice of colour schemes for quite some time! Here is an inspiration board I put together for you. It’s what I envision an aqua and peach wedding would look like – feminine, fresh and popping with pretty! What do you think?

{Cake Inspiration} Peach and White Wedding Cake

Peach and white is a classic combination which immediately brings to mind romance and charm – which is everything this stunning wedding cake is!  The soft pretty vintage shade of peach is kept modern and fresh with a large floral pattern and single white bloom for decoration. I discovered this pretty concoction on HWTM as part of a gorgeous ‘sweet as peach’ dessert table (which is also divine). Clearly this vintage inspired stunner would be a winner for a peach garden wedding or bridal shower. It would also marry beautifully with a pretty peach letterpress suite such as this.

Elegant San Diego Beachside Wedding by The Youngrens

Usually when you think of beach wedding you don’t think ‘elegant.’ But this stylish affair by The Youngrens manages to beautifully combine a classy seaside wedding with all the typical elements of the beach. Perched atop the grand Pacific Terrace at L’Auberge Del Mar with sweeping views of the Pacific ocean, Carly and Travis celebrated their stunning seaside ceremony and cocktail hour whilst watching the sun set. The lovely ladies at Jolie Fleur and Alison of L’Auberge helped design all the elegant details including sand dollars for the tables (named after the couple’s favorite locations in San Diego), a lovely peach, navy and grey colour palette for the flowers and bridesmaids, and delightfully delicious starfish clad cupcakes for dessert. Guests were treated to gourmet cuisine and the soothing sounds of a string quartet whilst taking in the stunning ocean views. It’s easy to see how this elegantly understated wedding with it’s soft and pretty details took a typical beach theme and transformed it into one romantic classy affair.Beach Wedding ReceptionBeachside Ceremony SettingBeachside BridePeach and White Wedding DecorWedding Aisle DecorBeachside WeddingString QuartetBeach Themed WeddingBeachside Wedding DecorationsSand Dollars Wedding TableSan Diego Wedding CoupleNavy, Grey and White Wedding ColoursSan Diego Beachside CeremonyPeach and White Aisle DecorPeach and White Ceremony FlowersBeachside Wedding CuisineBeachside Wedding TableNavy and White Wedding PaletteBeachside Wedding ReceptionBride and Groom Chair DecorSan Diego Beachside WeddingBeach Cupcake DessertBeachside Wedding Venue San DiegoDel Mar San Diego WeddingWedding Couple Sparklers

From beautiful bride Carly:

What was your wedding vision?

My vision for our wedding was a celebration of love – not just between Travis and I, but also our two families and groups of friends coming together for the first time. In terms of decor, I knew I always wanted to keep things simple. I dreamt of getting married in Del Mar for many years so having Seaside Park and the Del Mar coastline as the backdrop was plenty decoration on its own.

What inspired your wedding theme, colors and decor?

Del Mar is where I was born and where Travis and I started dating, so even though we weren’t living there, we knew that the location should be the theme. Peach is my favorite color and peach roses are my favorite flower, so those two components had to be in the decor. I looked on the internet to find colors to compliment peach and found a picture of a man in a navy tux with a silver vest and a peach boutonniere – the three colors together are elegant and summery without being too bold – just perfect for me! One of my favorite decoration elements was my version of a “table number.” Each table was named after a famous San Diego beach! My mom, sister and I went to a seaside decor shop and found large sand dollars to write the names of the beaches on. For party favors, we provided our guests with chocolates from Chuao, a San Diego-based chocolatier. 

What do you feel made your wedding unique?

In honor of the many friends and family who flew in from North Carolina for the wedding, I came up with a recipe for a white wine sangria made with Century Table White Wine from the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. It was a delicious surprise at cocktail hour which our guests loved!  Something else very special to us was Travis’ Uncle Jim was our officiant. 

Did you include any DIY or personalized details?

The party favors we assembled by hand. My mother-in-law is very handy in the craft department so she made the adorable little “C & T” tags that adorned our chocolates. Our biggest DIY project was actually our wedding invitations. It was a group effort between my Mom, my mother-in-law, my sister and myself. My sister designed the wording, my mom hand painted roses on each invitation and my mother-in-law cut, assembled and packaged everything. They were truly small works of art!  

What was your biggest challenge?

I had two major challenges – the first was planning a wedding from out of town. I currently live in Honolulu, HI and trying to coordinate everything from here was difficult at times. Due to tight finances, I could only make two trips to San Diego in the year before the wedding – so I couldn’t have pulled it off without my “Moms” and my wedding coordinators! The other challenge was my husband was deployed during most of the planning process. He left in January of  2011 and didn’t return until 10 days before the wedding! While it was wonderful he put his faith in me to make a lot of decisions, it was really hard some days not having him around to ask him if I was doing the right thing, if we should spend more money here or there, etc. Again, without the support of my family, I couldn’t have pulled it off.

What were your favorite moments?

I can’t pick any one moment – there were too many favorites! I loved that my best friend of 20 years helped me put on my wedding shoes. I loved how I sat in the sun and enjoyed a mimosa (or two…) with my sister and cousins before getting ready. I loved how Mom woke up with me at 7 am the morning of the wedding and encouraged me to eat a big breakfast. I loved that Travis and I chose to do a First Look so we could spend time together before seeing anyone else.  I loved when I was taking pictures before the ceremony, I saw my college friends walking to our cocktail hour and they cheered for me from the street. I loved how a little girl I saw in the park said ‘I was the most beautiful bride she had ever seen.’ I love that I walked down the aisle to a string quartet playing the reprise of Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid and I love that my husband kissed me and spun me around during our first dance! 

My wedding was truly one of the best days of my life so far and I could go on forever about it!

Thanks Carly for sharing with us the details of your beautiful day. Congratulations to you both!
