Trends come and go. Style lasts forever.

For a brief period of time, rustic weddings were all the rage. Typewriters and mason jars adorned the reception tables of a thousand suburban couples. And, just like that, it was over.

I find that true beauty and style comes when people genuinely reflect the culture and heritage they know. The idea of a rustic wedding may have been a trend for some – disingenuous at best – but it’s a true heritage for others.

There’s such a wide world of color and texture

and materials to explore in rustic celebrations.

I’m thrilled to have teamed up with Kelly Anne Photography for her incredible Vero Workshop this year. Attendees had the privilege to hear from some of the best companies in the businesses: Trumpet & Horn, Chelsea Harris Creative, Jacin Fitzgerald, Elisa Bricker, Toast Events…an incredible group to be sure!

As for the details?

Simply the best. Stunning styling by Victoria Katsikis. That dress from Claire Pettibone‽ All of it to-die-for.
