From the Fall/Winter 2015 issue of The Wedding Ring ONTARIO Magazine
In this design palette, we feature incredible rustic, vintage décor tablescapes created by Cindy of Now And Always Wedding and Special Event Décor. These palettes are designed within an authentic barn that she transformed into a drop dead gorgeous reception space.
The rustic part of this palette is primarily brought into the design through the use of a century old barn for a reception space. This meant gorgeous wide plank floors and soaring wood ceilings.
Décor: Now & Always Special Event & Wedding Décor (nowandalways.ca) (review)
Florals: Brantford Blooms (brantfordblooms.com)
Venue: Century old Barn in rural Ontario, shown above and below
Theme: Rustic Vintage
Vintage elements include the age of the barn, blush overlays, pearl napkin rings and lace accents that remind you of early 20th century garden parties.
More rustic design elements that are hot right now are the use of chalkboards, frames and old weathered doors (seen in head table backdrop), slices of tree stumps used in centrepieces, mason jars used as flower vases (in ceremonies and on reception guest tables), and white wooden garden chairs for guests of your outdoor ceremony.
Cindy says the use of burlap fabrics, wrought iron lanterns, the use of an abundace of fresh wild flowers and greens, and strands of vintage style globe lights, are also a great touch to a rustic design palette.
For blooms, vintage garden party brings to mind peonies and hydrangea, vintage plates, pastel colours.
