Rustic Chic Wedding | One of Our Favorite Event Designers Combines Burlap, Chandeliers & More
Our Facebook newsfeed has been buzzing with some of Tamara's Wendt's fall and winter wedding goodness, and we will be treating you to glimpses of her work often in the coming months.
One of our favorite looks right now is the rustic chic wedding that combines natural textures like burlap and jute, simple florals, candlelight and upscale touches like crystals and chandeliers for elegant receptions that are not the least bit fussy. No one does this look better than Tamara.
This high-low centerpiece combines natural and rustic elements with upscale blooms for a look that is rustic and sophisticated. We love the dramatic height that Tamara brings to the table with Floral Branches
and suspended glass votive holders. With long tables, a few of these spectacular arrangements set the stage for your reception while making the most of your design budget. Anchoring the tables with a burlap runner, lanterns, candles in a variety of votive holders (and some Mason jars) and moss creates a textured centerpiece that encourages your guests to chat by giving them unobstructed views at the table and beyond.
We had to include this shot (3rd photo) to show the smaller chandeliers that Tamara brought in just for the wedding. Definitely a luxe detail, but affordable when you're working with a veteran event designer like Tamara, who has a stash of awesome staples ready to incorporate into your vision.
This detail shot (4th photo) shows how effective the high-low centerpiece really can be at combining natural elements with show-stopping height. We love the combination of smooth stones, moss, mums and a long burlap runner. Candle Votives
in a variety of heights add to the effect, especially as dusk settles.
We can't not share one more awesome detail from this gorgeous wedding. Tamara incorporated one of the venue's signature decor pieces (last photo) ~ a large wagon wheel chandelier ~ into her design while adding her own upscale touches to personalize it. Suspended floral poms and lanterns add an elegant touch to this fixed piece and further customize the venue for this wedding.
