Refined country wedding inspiration
From Paisley Photography: Rustic opulence is the theme of this wedding inspired shoot located on an acreage in the rolling Foothills region of Southern Alberta. This refined take on a country wedding reveals elements of an era in the past, combined with the elegance of a modern setting.
vintage rustic table
The tablescape shows off an elegant “formal” appeal while dressed with vintage and rustic flair. The tableware gives the appearance of a grand formal dinner, while the floral centerpiece brings it back to the countryside with hints of blue, blush and ivory throughout. A dramatic pergola in the center draped in blush roses and greenery, reveal a dazzling crystal chandelier to complete the formal dining effect, all while staying true to the country nature of the shoot.
Dramatic lighting for the evening help creates a stunning change in appearance. Linen menus, wedding pie and elegant floral arrangements all help contribute to this rustic opulent theme. The groomsmen were dressed in blue formal attire and adorned with patterned blue bow ties to match each other. A boutonnière styled with an old pocket watch created a beautiful alternative to a traditional floral piece.
rustic wedding bar
The bar area has a “Mad Men” type of feel to it while maintaining elegance with a pop of blue color in the oversized blue lounge chairs. Touches of masculinity in such items as a men’s grooming kit, whiskey, cigars, and airplanes help create that vintage vibe by tying into the brown shades in the wooden barn and window frames. A rustic and opulent inspired wedding for any bride or groom wanting to maintain a country vibe without losing elegance.
