Creating a Woodland Jewel Tone Wedding
If you're going for a bold, rich, outdoor aesthetic, think emerald green, ruby red, plum, burgundy and royal blue. Aka in food colors, figs, cherries, blueberries, raspberries, grapes, and plums. It's passionate, it's deep, and it works.
After this styled shoot, I seriously recommend everyone consider a jewel tone palette especially with a woodland, outdoor venue. Let's me tell you why and remind you of the "why" for getting married!
Jewel Tone Florals
Instead of incorporating ALL the jewel tone colors into the bouquet, I focused on a few colors, magenta, purple and red wrapped in a charcoal ribbon. Anemones were the star flower (I mean, how can it not be..!) along with roses, lisianthus, safari sunset, and textural greens.
Woodland Outdoor Venue
Props to our photographer and stylist who found this woodland gem tucked in Boston, MA. We were surrounded with giant, swooping trees that was the perfect backdrop for the bright, bold jewel tone elements. The deep dark greens gave off an enchanted feel which was brightened up with our picnic set up (see below).
Table (Picnic) Set Up and Design
Rings & Ridges did a stellar job styling this cozy chic charcuterie picnic! The velvet, luxurious blankets at the ends of the picnic blanket helped set up that cozy feel. The royal blue plates added elegance and depth. The fairy lights and candles added romance and magic. And the food... charcuterie board, cake, and wine. What more do we need?
So friends, I hope this gave you some inspiration whether you're planning a wedding, vow renewal, proposal, elopement or whatever it may be!
