Thinking anything but pink for your wedding day? These amazing avant-garde photos by Laura Watson allowed Gloria Schulz Events and Blooming Hites to make a winning case for earth tone rustic wedding details, using shades of brown, black, gold, yellow, and green to create a welcoming ambiance and a stunning modern celebration at The Carlyle Venue in Atlanta! The incredible film photos capture the luminous light beaming onto this gorgeous couple at the indoor industrial ceremony site, the stunning outdoor patio for portraits, and the creative details – think rawhide table runners and marigold yellow silk signs – that are sure to inspire non-traditional wedding couples for ages!
Earth tone shades and rustic wedding details are stunningly used throughout this entire wedding day design, from the leather textured invitations by Sir With Love to the bride’s brown suede pointed toe heels!
Alongside the earth tone rustic wedding details was a focus on vibrant colors – rather than traditional wedding picks like blush and champagne, the color scheme took its focus from elements found in nature, with vibrant golden yellow and rich green accents. The bride’s vintage emerald engagement ring combined the perfect warm tones with a captivating gemstone to add color and sparkle!
This gorgeous bridal gown from Atlanta boutique The Sentimentalist hits every note for a timeless bride – the minimalist A-line silhouette is both flowing and figure flattering, with a square neckline and thin straps. The silk chiffon skirt makes every movement into poetry, and a side-slit allows for ease of movement and an unexpected flair to counteract the classic style! This beauty of a dress looked picture-perfect on our bride, with a delicate beaded belt to accentuate the fitted waist.
How stunning is this gold dust shimmer veil? The texture on the sheer tulle drop veil adds a gorgeous dusting of sparkle to accent the classic lines of the bride’s elegant wedding dress.
Rustic cane back ceremony chairs faced tall industrial windows inside the historic event space. The dramatic backlighting added an ethereal glow to the ceremony, from the hanging greenery chandelier that marked the altar for the bride and groom, to the earth tone rustic wedding rentals!
This amazing light haloed the bride and groom during their vows, creating completely magical portraits thanks to photographer Laura Watson!
Wanting to add pops of color to your seating chart? This creative display used customized linen wall hangings with the guests’ names and table assignments. The gorgeous raw silk texture, rich golden yellow color, and eye-catching placement on standing cocktail tables made it a stunning design!
This creative reception table combines cheerfully colorful flowers with pops of vibrant yellow from the low centerpieces with a leather table runner to add earth tone rustic wedding details to the barn wood farm table. Matte black china, blue taper candles, and gold mercury glass votive candleholders added to the modern rustic blend of details for the tabletop decor. The dark brown rawhide table runners added an earthy and masculine finish to the reception, skipping traditional wedding colors for a modern ranch-inspired event with refined style!
A customized wedding bar sign turned a goldenrod yellow linen canvas into a tapestry at the whitewashed shiplap event bar! Signature cocktails included a French 75 with sparkling wine, gin, lemon juice and sugar, and a Moscow Mule with local ginger beer to add spice to the vodka and lime juice. Favor gift boxes by Sir With Love allowed guests to keep the local flavors going after the event, with themed koozies and cans of locally brewed Hoppy Little Trees cider!
This gorgeous cake by Cake Envy brought in vibrant colors, with a fresh flower cascade of yellow, orange, peach, and green that added texture to the tall watercolor buttercream tiers. A vintage trunk with an emerald green silk runner created a stunning dessert display and added to the signature earth tone rustic wedding details throughout the event!
The night ended as the best celebrations do – with a champagne glass tower!
