All this wedding inspiration was set at The Starling at Pond Eddy, a vintage Airbnb venue along the Delaware River Valley within the Catskills region of New York, around two hours from NYC.
A team of New York wedding vendors designed an intimate celebration that is inspired entirely by the Airbnb's cozy vibe and woodland backyard scenery. The day's look and feel perfectly grabs all those festival feelings - love, community, and positivity.
The team showcases this with two different looks a 70's retro vibe followed by a boho rocker chic (ala Stevie Nicks in a modern Alexis Rose kind of way) or glam (think 80's Madonna).
Please keep scrolling to see both looks. They are equally as fabulous. There is so much more boho-chic wedding inspiration in the full gallery. All styled and captured by Jen Chanyi and Kristen Scalia.
Tie Dye Wedding Invites
Wedding stationery designer, Moxie Fox set the tone of the day with these tie-dye wedding invitations. These bohemian invites have flecks of gold, adorned with hippie inspired pen and ink drawings on them to really give off that 70's vibe.

Sustainable Flower Expert
Our favorite sustainable flower experts, Bud and Blooms, created a dream ceremony backdrop with a tree-adorned large-scale floralscape using their own locally grown wild flowers and sustainably sourced blooms.
They carried their floral vision into a gorgeous, wild bouquet and floral crown for our bride while keeping the tabelscapes versatile with one larger centerpiece and numerous bud vases that can be arranged multiple ways on any number of table sizes. You'll have to keep scrolling to see the tablescapes and the flower crown.
There’s a boho lounge complete with draping fabrics and a zebra-print chair – add as many disco balls as you want to take it from day to night.
BRIGHT WEDDING RECEPTION
Move over muted blush, sage and white. We went all out with a bright color palette – a vibrant array of pinks, oranges and wine tones are on display from the flowers and paper goods to the locally-made tie-dyed napkins made by The Farmhouse Project decorating the tablescapes.
