No matter the season, we love to see a good woodland wedding theme pop up in our inbox (remember last year’s woodland winter ideas? Genius!). There’s something about an outdoor setting that’s as elegant as a more traditional venue yet totally inventive and inspiring. Photog Lisa O’Dwyer wanted to take woodland to the next level, reimagining rustic elegance altogether. She hooked up with Pink Diamond Events to show off their beautiful Colorado backdrop. We wanted to show Colorado woodland elegance without the ubiquitous sunflowers, mason jars, and burlap.

Instead, the team went with terrariums, pine needles, and a couple gorgeous gowns. We like where this is going already…

This woodland-inspired bouquet is made up of the Colorado state flower, the columbine, with artichokes and peonies.

From Lisa: Casey of Pink Diamond Events and Brittany of Hana Style Designs designed the woodland table settings. Brittany’s flower art is so unique and artistic for Northern Colorado! She used plant dyed silk ribbons from Silk & Willow to tie little glass globes in the pines and filled them with flowers. The table had glass jars filled with beautiful plants like orchids, like little hothouse curiosities. The linens were tied with mushrooms and other flowers and moss were in the elegant rustic centerpieces.

California ranch house wedding | Photos by Jamie of Rad and in Love | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=77719

When Joey + Tom happened upon the Camarillo Ranch House, they knew its lush, wild setting would dictate their wedding style: an outdoor garden ceremony with a fun indoor barn wedding/dance party. They decided on a spring wedding so their East coast + Midwest fams could escape the cold for a little “spring break” in California. Brilliant, right? From there, it was designing a perfect indoor/outdoor event complete with elements of rustic elegance + personal vintage pieces – which Joey pinned here – that suited their style to a T.

Thanks to Rad + In Love for the photos!

Joey says, Right before the ceremony, I had a little alone time with my bridesmaids and my mother and mother-in-law, sharing private thoughts and saying unique thank yous to each. I wouldn’t trade those moments for anything.

A Dart DJ mixtape for you all:

We loved this tip from Joey: Make sure you have people around you that you can trust and you’d want to hang out with outside of your wedding. Every vendor was so professional and on top of their game, while also being calm, laidback and fun to be around. I am so thankful for all of them!

Congrats you guys!
