Rustic Mountain Wedding: Caroline + Alex

If you’ve been looking for a fun laid-back rustic mountain wedding, this is it! Caroline and Alex’s wedding was this past October in Trade, Tennessee. Raven from You Are Raven Photography captured their beautiful wedding and tells us more about the details. Raven says, “The drive up to Caroline & Alex’s rustic mountain wedding in Tennessee was one of the most beautiful ones I’ve ever made. They married near one of my all-time favorite locations in the world, at the White Fence Farm in Trade, TN, which happens to be one of THE BEST locations I’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting at.”

“I loved Caroline & Alex pretty much immediately, and they’re my kind of people up and down. They’re so laid-back and fun and goofy and were sincerely up for whatever ridiculousness I threw at them (which, with this location, was a lot). The weather was cold and a little rainy, which ended up being perfect for the two of them, they later told me, because their trip to Ireland together early on in their relationship was such a huge part of building who they are together. So their entire wedding day just reminded them of that trip.”

Boho / Rustic Antler Wedding Ideas — Ask Emmaline

It’s time for a new Ask Emmaline question! Lauren asks…

“My fiance is an avid hunter and outdoors man. I’m slightly outdoorsy, but lean towards more colorful, bohemian wedding details. I want our wedding to reflect both of our personalities. We’re going with a rustic wedding and I’ve seen some antler ideas but I have no clue where to start. Do you have any tips?”

Great question! I think you’re already moving swiftly in the right direction: you’ve picked a wedding theme that reflects your personal styles (awesome) AND you’ve already honed in on a focal point (antlers — nice choice). Antlers are a popular style right now in rustic weddings because there are so many artists crafting together some amazing things using the woodsy icon. It’s boho-chic at its finest, and it’s also very masculine and woodsy. What a perfect combination for you two!

To give you a starting point, we’ve rounded up some creative antler wedding ideas. These should be suitable for his outdoorsy tastes and still hold true to your boho-chic style. Enjoy!

Rustic Antler Wedding Ideas

Use your icon (antlers) sparingly to keep from overwhelming your space. A few key pieces are al you need to personalize your space.
