Spot all of the nerdy touches and adorable dogs at this wedding in the Redwoods

We were going for if Wes Andersen threw an early ’00s high school dance in the forest. We wanted lots of nerdy pop culture touches, but nothing too heavy-handed. We were in the same nerdy friend group in high school and actually dated for two weeks before going out separate ways. I was married to someone else for a decade but when that ended we reconnected. We have all the same friends and even the same godkids, so our wedding was like a giant reunion.

Get serene vibes with these pared down, nature themed wedding details

While y’all know we love big, colorful, and wild wedding themes, we also totally love simple, pared down, and more romantic themes just as much. So with warmer weather looming and outdoor weddings taking center stage for spring and summer, I wanted to explore what nature themed wedding details and boho wedding details I could find that fit a more natural and organic aesthetic. Think lace, linen, floral embroidery, woods, kraft paper, eucalyptus, and colors pulled from nature.

This tiny upstate New York wedding had private vows, prayer flags, & so many sentimental moments

Tasha and Priscilla rocked a super sweet, small, and DIYed wedding in upstate New York. They said that they were “kind of winging this whole ‘wedding’ since it’s basically just a party after we elope in the woods in upstate NY.” That’s one of my favorite kinds of parties! Plus there were sentimental moments all over. It’s a doozy…

This fall elopement in Tennessee was surrounded by foliage, leather jackets, & intimate vows

Picture it: an intimate ceremony among the turning fall leaves of a woodland backdrop. A gray dress, dapper groom, and a little edge with leather jackets.

Sam and Zig wanted a big DIY event, but splurged on the things that were most important to them, like their epic yellow and white flowers. The color perfectly match the heat of the day (a heat index of 105F!). Just wait until you see their gorgeous ceremony arch. In lieu of a big formal reception, these two beer lovers had a dinner and a pub crawl through Philly as their ceremony after-party.
