Bouquet making tips:  Don’t be afraid to forage responsibly for items to add to your bouquets.  I am always testing native foliage from my surrounding landscape.  For me, using what is growing around me always gives the bouquets a more personal feel.

Were you head over heels in love with those mismatched blush and soft grey bridesmaid dresses from the Music Center Wedding? We especially loved the floor length wrap waist ruffled wedding dress that the above bridesmaid was wearing, making it her own with a boho chic twist.

Brevard Music Center

Garrett and Mac had their destination wedding at the Brevard Music Center in western North Carolina. The venue hosts numerous musical events throughout the year and is located on 180 acres nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Mac and Garrett traveled to Brevard during their college years to attend many concerts and fell in love with the scenery and small town culture of Brevard, NC. The couple met during college and love attending music festivals together—they even included their teardrop camper in their wedding send-off!

DIY Tambourines

With the DIY tambourines, teardrop camper and outdoor musical setting the couple managed to incorporate elements unique to their relationship. Additionally there were other thoughtful details that speak to the couple’s strong family ties.

Ring A Dinner Bell

The groom rang an old dinner bell before the reception began in honor of Mac’s grandfather who was unable to attend the wedding. As a child, Mac’s grandfather rang a bell before Sunday Dinners so that all the grandchildren would know that it was time to eat. The barn-like reception venue and string lights provided an inviting atmosphere for their guests and the reception layout featured long family-style tables to create the feeling of comfort and intimacy.
