The location features a beautiful tropical glass garden house surrounded with lush greenery and romantic ambiance. Jonathan and Shelby’s reception followed at The Grand Opera House. The location is a reinvigorated historic building with high ceilings and nostalgic atmosphere. The photography team of Matt + Kathy from Mathy Shoots People did a terrific job capturing their wedding and all of it’s rustic details! See the photos and read more…

Good morning, lovelies! Today, we’re kicking off this beautiful Friday with the ultimate keepsake card box. We call it that because not only does it function as a beautiful card box for your wedding, but it becomes an actual keepsake card box you’ll want to reuse in your home. Instead of paper, cardboard, paper mache, or other material that can break down over time, Go Rustic has brilliantly designed this wooden keepsake card box that reminds us of a treasured chest. This wood chest card box features decorative hardware and a padlock (for safe keeping of your treasured cards) and this one in particular features a dark stain in ‘walnut’. We love the heart tag customized with the couple’s first names and the wedding date. Find out more after the jump!

Good morning + Happy Monday! We hope your weekend was filled with relaxation, plenty of sunshine + a pool to cool off in for a bit. :) We’re kicking off the week with these whimsical rustic burlap letters. There are few things I love more (in the decor world) than a detail that goes from event to love nest in no time flat. Add a personal touch to your wedding decor with the bride’s first initial, groom’s first initial, and initial of your new last name. Proudly display on your cake table, escort card table, or head table and place in your home after the wedding day! It would look lovely as wall decor, don’t you think? Letters measure 8″ high and 1″ wide and are made of a lightweight paper mache wrapped in burlap. You can customize yours with lace, mulberry paper flowers or handmade silk flowers to complement your color palette.

This ring “pillow” features old books covered in moss to appear as though it was recovered from a shipwreck. Rings can be secured atop the books with twine, attached.

We love to find unique, multi-functional finds for both wedding day and ever after. How many brides can say they were able to reuse their rustic wedding centerpieces in their love nest after the big day? That’s why we love these log bowls by Loyal Loot Collective. They are handmade and offer the rustic look of trees in their natural state – but with a twist. Each bowl is made from reclaimed trees and contains a high-floss finish in a variety of colors. We think they will complement your rustic wedding beautifully.
