If you're lucky enough to have a breathtaking vista for your wedding venue, capitalize on the view, but don't try to improve on it! Instead, select rustic wedding touches to highlight the splendor and underscore the natural backdrop. Read about this gorgeous rustic wedding that was featured on Style Me Pretty.

Split Rails, Oak Barrels and Bountiful Blooms

The Beauty of Nature | BBJ LinenCarrie Coleman Photography | Shay Brown Events

The beauty of nature is a style on its own, but earthy accents and a dose of warm brown tones captures the natural world and its comforting appeal in fine form. Dressed tables both outdoors and inside the ivory-draped tent are perfectly coordinated with a mix of solid and pattered blue-grey textiles. An abundance of ivory and white keeps it lighthearted and melds beautifully with mountains and surrounding fields.

Unexpected Playfulness | BBJ LinenCarrie Coleman Photography | Shay Brown Events

There are no jarring tones in this perfectly-coordinated setting. From wedding lace to pale pink and white floral garlands, from the bridal party's pale grey gowns to the groom's suit, from the natural-sprig boutonnieres to the lavish table settings, this restrained scheme allows bride and groom to shine. The recessional sparklers add a touch of unexpected playfulness!

A Wealth of Pattern Mixes

Purposeful Mismatching | BBJ LinenCarrie Coleman Photography | Shay Brown Events

Don't ever think that everything has to match! In fact, purposeful mismatching can be ever so pleasing and stylish. Combine weathered wood banquet tables with upholstered period chairs. Use wood-toned bamboo seating around lushly draped round tables. Create floral centerpieces of varied sizes and heights. Accent it all with unexpected touches: antlers hanging from tent rafters, trailing greenery to adorn long tabletops, and sprightly blue and white lace china

Unexpected Glam Meets Natural Kitsch

What is more adorable than weathered brown cowboy boots peeking out from beneath the hem of a little girl's lace-trimmed gown? Not much! And that's just one of the uber-appealing juxtapositions at this masterfully-executed rustic wedding. We also love the mix of black chalkboard envelopes with floral-accented invitations. Bravo!

Non-Traditional Traditions

Take a sensible approach to the celebration and follow through on the rustic theme by offering a selection of "honest" brews straight from the bottle, along with fine congratulatory cigars to pick out of the box. Give the display its due on a rectangular table draped with soft blue-grey linen, surrounded by green lawn and weathered oak barrels.
