At this time of year I crave a good glass of wine in the evening and look forward to early fall wine festivals. There is something very intriguing and romantic about an evening with wine, good food, and conversation.
Thus came the inspiration for a "moss-inspired" vineyard wedding. I love the natural texture and inherent beauty of moss. Decor can focus on terrarium-style containers with ferns and moss. Add a sprig of rosemary and some cream colored roses for fragrant, visual interest.
For an outdoor wedding and reception at a vineyard everything can be kept simple, allowing the natural surroundings to shine. For a touch of elegance add patio lighting or candles to your tables.
Image #1 is a good example of the freedom this style wedding allows you - your bridesmaids can pick out dresses in a few different shades of green or tan and be a beautiful compliment to your dress, the outdoor backdrop and best of all - they can pick a dress they truly feel beautiful in. This is important as none of us have the same skin tone or body shape.
Best of all the relaxed atmosphere will lend itself to a fun night of conversation, dancing and celebration of a new marriage!
