Wedding Feature: Laura & Ray {A Playful, Rustic Affair}

This past weekend I styled a beautifully rustic and fun-filled wedding reception brunch.

The fun loving couple – Laura & Ray – wanted a celebration focused on delicious food and good times with some rustic flare.  The Field House in Enumclaw, WA was the perfect venue for them!

Cheesecloth, cheesecloth, cheesecloth!

We used 200 yards of unbleached cheesecloth!  It is a super affordable material and looks really elegant.  Might not be what you would expect from something used to make cheese.

A HUGE thank you to the bride, groom and bride’s best friend Liz for getting the ceiling draping installed since I couldn’t be there the day before the brunch.  Did they do an amazing job, or what??

The chalkboards were a fan favorite for sure.

Each of these took me a few hours to create, from designing the stencils to getting them drawn on with chalk ink pens.

This was my first time working with chalkboards and I loved it.  They look amazing!

The drool inspiring menu doesn’t hurt either.  Cinnamon swirl french toast with amaretto cream sauce?  Get out!  And guess what else?  The bride is gluten free so they tweaked their recipes to accommodate.  Who could tell the difference?

No one.

Scooter’s Custom Catering is phenomenal!

The bride is a coffee drinker, so these burlap coffee sacks were a no brainer.

There were a few repeat designs on the sacks, but most of them were different.

Paula with Paisley Petals did a phenomenal job on the floral arrangements.

I love the mix of texture and color!

Since the event was held so early in the day, we weren’t sure if people would be up for dancing or not.

Laura and Ray didn’t want anyone twiddling their thumbs, so we came up with tabletop games that would not only be fun, but decorative!

The dice are 2inches and go with the Lucky in Love game rules.  Basically I just took the game Pig and changed the name.

I collected a few vintage games from local antique stores to add to our selection of Barrel of Monkeys, tic tac toe and Lucky in Love.

No brunch is complete without a mimosa!

The couple chose a mimosa and bellini bar.  The beer was brewed by the groom himself!

Laura wanted to use her own collection of stones for guest’s to write on in place of a traditional guest book.

I took a peek at a few of the wishing stones; aren’t they sweet?

The bride made the tasty jam favors herself.  Guests took home a delicious sample of her triple berry jam or raspberry freezer preserves.

I designed the chalkboard inspired labels to blend with the rest of the event’s decor. The adorable vintage silverware washi tape was a last minute addition.

Could not have done this without my fabulous set up crew!  Thank you Mom, Melissa and Stephanie!

Congratulations Laura & Ray!!
