Modern Rustic Autumn Inspiration

Working with the fall color palette of amber, gold, saffron and chocolate, Kelly Marie of Fleur and Heather of Greatest Expectations pulled from the in-the-moment trend of beer and hops to style a shoot that is the perfect combination of modern and rustic.  With custom stationery and the cutest vintage beer bottle labels from Lily Red Studio, a mouthwatering menu (a charcuterie and cheese station!) from Pure Kitchen Catering, a beautiful bridal look from The Left Bank, and the fabulous raw space at Architectural Anarchy, every little detail was thoughtfully presented.  And don’t even get me started on the amazing desserts from Truffle Truffle – including an out of this world 4-tier truffle cake!  It was impossible to narrow down the gorgeous images by Amanda Hein, so run over to see ALL of the eye candy in the gallery!

    1. This was such an incredible shoot with an even more amazing team! Everyone pulled out their best tricks and with inspiration that just began with the color palette from beer, we took it to a classy and romantic level! Thank you so much Ami for featuring, and thank you so much to everyone who worked so hard to make it as beautiful as it is!!!

    2. I love the symmetry is not the most important part of wedding arranging any more. The trend on country sheik imperfection is such a nice change of pace. This is a perfect example of the new trends in floral, a great way to be modern without worrying about perfection. I love this! thank you for the post!

    3. So so beautiful! What I love most about this is that it’s not the typical rustic look. It’s more elegant. More old world than country. And not so feminine that the boys look out of place. Great job ladies.

    4. so happy to see that our vision for this shoot resonated so much! we were honored to participate and we’re thrilled by the response! thanks so much for the post, and to everyone for the wonderful feedback!
