The Modern Groom

The groom was dressed to impress in a black tuxedo. His unique style shined with special accessories, like a wooden bow tie, mismatched cuff links and wingtip shoes.

Yes, that bow tie is real wood! Wouldn’t these make unique groomsmen gifts, too?

Dreamy Ceremony Details

Magnolia leaves acted as ceremony programs, and the wording was so beautifully written on these natural little canvases.

This ceremony was very artistic, unconventional and very bohemian. A creative DIY backdrop constructed of handmade dreamcatchers hung from a piece of driftwood, and the sun shined through the lace, beads and feathers.

How gorgeous are the rings they exchanged? That marquis diamond is a stunner!

Arrow Escort Cards

Equally creative reception décor made a seamless transition from the ethereal ceremony. Guests signed a guest book globe that beautifully displayed the words of a true free spirit.

Cupid arrows were displayed in a handmade basket and doubled as escort cards.

Romantic Rustic Venue

Weddings do not have to be complicated to be stunning. This unfussy barn reception is sure to make your jaw drop! Rustic chandeliers, café lights and sun peeking through the slatted walls illuminated the space and created the perfect ambiance for a romantic dinner. The sweetheart table was completed with romantic white candles in brass candlesticks, and a 6-foot floral garland that cascaded to the barn floor.

Fresh fruits and vegetables, like pomegranates and artichokes, added rich pops of color to the lush garland.

Tapas-Style Menu

Serving small locally grown bites off an artful menu gave a farm-to-table feel, fitting for this carefree and laid back wedding.

Signature Wedding Drinks

At an intimate wedding, you can skip the full bar and offer unique signature drinks. Serving a few specialty drinks will satisfy different tastes and preferences. Grapefruit sangria cocktails are so delicious and refreshing, and Bohemian beer is an appropriate choice, too!

An Assorted Dessert Display

A whimsical desserts display welcomes everyone to try a few different sweets. Vintage linens and accessories build a display almost too pretty to touch. Little gold arrows and fresh fruit adornments give this simple wedding cake bohemian flair!

Shimmering geometric chocolate truffles look like modern little gems you can eat. What a unique treat!

Planning Tip: Create uniformity on a dessert display by using similar finishes on the variety of sweets.

A Truly Adventurous Exit

After the vows were exchanged and the cake was cut, the happy couple departed in a truly bohemian fashion. A restored canoe made for a memorable exit!

Southwestern Bohemian Wedding Inspiration

From real feather details and bold hues to farm tables and a beautiful old barn, this wedding is the perfect marriage of southwestern style and a southern Georgia setting. Photographed by Andie Freeman at the beautiful Barn on Belmont in Athens, GA, this bright bohemian wedding inspiration will kick-start your planning!Bohemian bride in cowboy boots | Andie Freeman Photography

Southwestern Bridal Style

This unique pin dot gown provided the inspiration for this wedding shoot. The turquoise-studded belt and delicate tulle skirt influenced both the colors and textures used in the decor. Turquoise jewelry is totally trending this season, and big bold pieces complement the bride in this gown.

Bohemian wedding dress | Andie Freeman Photography

Bohemian beauty is all about natural and carefree makeup. Rosy cheeks and soft pink lips give the bride a sun-kissed glow on her big day, and bold black mascara enhances her eyelashes for a stunning look.

Bridal Beauty Tip: Ask your makeup artist to provide a touch-up kit to keep on hand. Outdoor summer weddings can get quite toasty and a quick makeup refresh may be necessary.

Bohemian Blooms

A boho bride almost always wears flowers in her hair. This bride’s bold hair piece complements her groom’s boutonniere, too!

Southwestern wildflowers meet southern charm with this stunning cascading bouquet, finished with vintage ribbons and lace.

Bridal Tip: Big organic bouquets are a trend we love! Remember to carry your blooms low so you don’t block your face when you’re walking down the aisle.

Adorable Ring Bearer Ideas

How adorable is a little man dressed like a mini-me version of the groom?  This ring bearer might be the cutest attendant at the wedding!

You can even infuse southwestern style in the ring bearer’s accessories. We love the idea of swapping a traditional ring bearer pillow for a nest adorned with feathers! This unique detail will garner “oohs” and “aahs” as your little guy marches down the aisle.

Eclectic Table Decor

Southwest flair meets southern chic with this farm table display. Assorted chairs and layered china enhance the bohemian feel. Bringing in pops of color with bright napkins and a big centerpiece is a way to add uniformity in this eclectic setting.

The little details really shine on this table! A cowboy boot place card holder is a nod to the southern locale, and silverware tied with ribbon adds another punch of pattern and texture.

Bridal Style: Bohemian Beauty

Being a bohemian bride is all about allowing your natural beauty to shine through with a stunningly effortless look. From your head all the way down to your toes, you want to appear like you’ve been strolling through an enchanted forest or a magnificent meadow. Here are some trends we’ve noticed on brides going for that rustic chic feel.

Starting from the top, the signature hairstyle for a boho look is loose romantic waves. The wavy hairstyle fully captures the carefree feel of the outdoors. Leave your hair down or opt for a low, slightly messy style for a whimsical vibe.

Another hair style option is a braid, which works with both down and up styles. For updos, a french braid can be added near the crown of the head, while longer styles can incorporate a few braids in the front or spread out throughout.

Style tip: Add flowers to your hair to channel your true, inner flower child. Whether woven directly into your hair or worn in the form of a headpiece, florals can be a great accessory for the bohemian bride. Choose real or fake flowers; just make sure the colors and style complement your bouquet.

Bridal Style tips from Kate Aspen | Bohemian Bride | Bridal Headband | Mathew Irving Photography | irvingphotographydenver.com

You’ll already have a radiant glow from your wedding day, and you want your makeup to match the rest of the organic theme, so keeping a natural look is key. Opt out of bold statements such as bright red lips and instead go for a nude or pink lip. Eye makeup and nail polish should be a neutral shade, too.

Bridal Style tips from Kate Aspen | Bohemian Bride | Bridal Headband | Bridal Makeup | Mathew Irving Photography | irvingphotographydenver.com

Aside from your wedding band and engagement ring, your jewelry should be minimal. Less is more! If you insist on having a little bling, a light, small necklace or stud earrings are all you need.

Bridal Style tips from Kate Aspen | Bohemian Bride | Bridal Makeup | Mathew Irving Photography | irvingphotographydenver.com

As for the bouquet, there are so many options to choose from! To help narrow it down, we suggest you choose flowers and a color scheme that depicts the types of flora and fauna found in a nature filled setting. This can include light pink roses, cornflowers, lavender, lilac and even wheat grass. Mix and match flowers and plants to create a whimsical, one of a kind look!

Style tip: Wrap the bouquet in burlap ribbon to really set the boho tone.
