Real Wedding: Rustic Elegance at Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse

Kelly  |  May 29

Today I’m showing one of the last weddings I did as an event designer. The couple chose the stunning (though logistically difficult) Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse. The bride was very feminine, and the groom a contractor and was a “guy’s guy” so our goal with the wedding design was to play off and combine the two, all the while keeping the design in a rustic elegant sphere.

For the bride’s bouquet I used a mix of cafe au lait dahlias, garden roses, scabiosa and dusty miller. The groomsmen wore succulents wrapped with torn linen and leather cord.

For the ceremony, the groom built the arbor and Town & Country installed a custom walkway that I stained to match the wood columns. We offset the strong wood with feminine flowers, blue hydranga being the bride’s favorite.

The invitations by Copper Willow featured letterpress and fine twine.

For dinner we did 5 different tabletop looks. For table numbers my assistant Molly and I made upolsetry tack numbers. For the napkin treatment, leather cord was tied in a feminine bow. Rustic wood tables were set with a custom runner of soft blue silk. Wood stumps added to the country vibe and made the silver mercury glass containers seem all the more elegant.

For the lounge I used so many awesome pieces from Found Vintage Rentals and I paired it with Town & Country’s candle wall to make it feel more intimate while not losing the beautiful view. A literal cheese cake served as dessert. To see more of this wedding hop on over to Style Me Pretty.
