Delightfully delicate, this refined wedding inspiration is perfect for any couple who seeks to combine whimsical rustic details with an effortlessly elegant vibe. Reverie Events and Weddings sought to transform a typical backyard into a magical space fit for a gorgeous celebration. They chose a feminine color palette of lavender, dusty rose, blush, and plum accented by metallic gold for a gorgeous, girly touch. To play off elements of the natural setting, they infused details inspired by the make-shift venue, such as wood table and chairs from All Occasions Party Rental, an eco-friendly Mix-Your-Own confetti station with dried flower petals, and a Four Oaks Bakery cake featuring hand-painted florals. Fresh figs, blackberries, and peaches were woven into the tablescape, which featured low and lush centerpieces from The Blue Daisy Floral Designs. As intimate weddings and backyard soirees continue to surge in popularity, this styled shoot shows just how much beauty can be found right outside your backdoor. We dare you not to be inspired by these lovely images from Dawn Derbyshire Photography.
About the Shoot
Our primary goal with this styled shoot was to show that it’s possible to transform a local backyard into an intimate, gorgeous wedding reception that looks like it is straight out of The Secret Garden. Backyard weddings can present unique challenges like topography, weather, accessibility, and more, but we always do our best to find creative solutions to each one of those potential problems. We were able to transform the yard into a magical garden fairy tale at the same time!
We wanted to find a beautiful balance between the natural elements of the backyard setting with formal elements of a timeless wedding. We mixed organic, natural textures like wood, bark, greenery, grass, herbs, and fruit with more formal, traditional, elegant materials like glass and gold. We kept our color palette really feminine and bridal but with a dusty, natural twist. We also incorporated some eco-friendly elements like a Make-Your-Own biodegradable toss confetti station, which could add a fun, hands-on element for guests and would engage their senses of sight (with the gorgeous, saturated colors) and smell (you can’t imagine how fresh and dreamy the confetti bar smelled!).
A great wedding planner prioritizes logistics and design equally, and that’s exactly what we did with this beautifully designed romantic wedding inspiration!
