How incredibly perfect does it sound to hold your wedding in the comforts of your own backyard? It sounds even more wonderful to have an impeccably beautiful backyard that has been maintained and smells of jasmine and roses. Not in the cards? No problem, we have the next best thing, Orange County's Franciscan Gardens. A beautiful rose garden with a rustic European relaxed vibe. Sounds dreamy to us.
To show you how magical Franciscan Gardens can be, Grand Engagements designed this glamorous and elegant backyard wedding inspiration to share with you. Creating a spectacular table top filled with garden styled flowers, paired with simple yet elegant details. All covered by an elaborate chandelier. Way fancy!

From: Grand Engagements on planning your own Glamorous And Elegant Backyard Wedding
Dreaming up a wedding is always one of the best parts of the design process. To achieve this Rustic European look, simply combine natural tones that build a base for any rustic feel and gives you the freedom to add any pops of color to your tabletop.
Our main colors were dark brown and creams. It was important to bring the lighter colors throughout the entire look & feel. The invitations were rich in texture and included the main colors. It definitely sets the tone of the wedding. Crystal chandeliers always are elegant and when used outdoors, it is stunning. The white wedding cake is truly a statement piece and includes an abundant amount of sugar flowers on it. Linen and burlap is always a favorite of mine and when added with antique keys, chandeliers, garden styled flowers, your guests will be whisked away to a European Countryside Fête.
For your wedding, you can buy the twine and antique keys online in bulk. The beauty of calligraphy is all in the details and such a piece of art. Make sure you incorporate little details throughout. Guests love the personalization of their names at the dinner table. Keep it personalized & unique, and most of all you!
