Alright cakies. It’s the last week of October (anyone care to tell us how that happened so quickly?!) and there’s only a few more days to plan your Halloween festivities. Luckily, some of our favorite bloggers have been providing all sorts of ideas lately, especially in regards to impressive tablescapes of the spooky (yet insanely beautiful) variety. Find them all at right!
Georgia has always been fascinated by magic, and when she met Marc, that feeling only grew. So for the wedding they wanted to create a sacred space full of fairytale energy that their fam + friends could share in too. They enlisted an epic team to help bring their vision to life, with planning by La Boheme Event Planning, design from Jesi Haack Design, JL Designs in charge of florals, and Scott Clark to document the whole thing. What could be better?
Georgia wanted her ten bridesmaids to resemble fairies. So pretty!
Hallie of La Boheme Event Planning created this dream fairytale setting so guests would have the feeling of walking through a forest and stumbling upon an enchanted party. She says, Since the event took place in a wide open lawn, we brought in 75+ bushes and trees to create our forest (not to mention hundreds of ferns for our forest floor), and had A Rental Connection build tiered guest seating to create more of an intimate space surrounded by lush greens.
They let their team of vendors really run with the fairyland theme, with stilt walkers (second stilt walker in a week here on 100LC, actually!), fire dancers, and fortune tellers.
Jesi of Jesi Haack Design says, We added our quirk by donning the tables with soft white fur placemats. And to keep it real with our dark magic vibe, we melted berry colored candles over lush wood stained candle holders. The guests were able to get their fortune read in our fortune teller tent. Each guest took home a tiny velvet spell bag filled with magical goodies. We made a fairyland forest of trees on stage and accented it with twinkle lights and oversized 3d origami stars.
On the ceremony…
Georgia tells it: Our ceremony was an actual handfasting, an ancient Pagan tradition where our officiant bound our hands (and hearts and souls) together with a beautiful ribbon. And at the end we released monarch butterflies, to symbolize this new journey that we are on together. What our vendors did for us was take my vision and spew it out on our canvas.

Photographer Caitlin of CJK Visuals recently backpacked all over Europe, and let’s just say she wasn’t quite ready to leave. To cure her case of wanderlust, she dreamed up a romantic European travel inspired wedding shoot with Kat of Dear Sweetheart Events right here in the states. Together they brought elegance, glamour, and nature together in a way that would be perfect for any couple with a timeless style and thirst for adventure.
The beadwork on this dress is just incredible! Le sigh.
Caitlin says, We wanted the tablescape and picnic area to be relaxed and inviting, using a variety of textures and colors. Our main pops of color were mint and navy blue, to reflect all the blues and greens that you’ll find on a map or globe.
Isn’t the picnic idea amazing? Their location, Bluestone Vineyward in Bridgewater, VA, totally gives off those European countryside vibes.
Wonderful work! Thanks to everyone involved…
