Like many couples, Hilary and Eli, had different styles and ideas for their wedding, so the big challenge was to combine them in the best way possible. The rustic style, preferred by the groom would fuse itself with the elegant touches much loved by the bride, which isn’t unusual when it comes to men and women!

For her look the bride chose a strapless dress by Vera Wang, with a fishtail design. Her bouquet focused on pink and soft orange tones, while her stunning and very elegant shoes in a nude tone complemented the whole look perfectly.

The groom adopted an elegant look with a dark suit, yet adding in his own rustic touch on his buttonhole. The groomsmen followed the groom’s elegant look while the bridesmaids opted for long dresses in similar tones but all different designs.

The outdoor ceremony was topped off perfectly by their very young bridal party, some very cute little bridesmaids proudly announced the arrival of the bride. The couple said their vows under beautiful trees that added a spectacular rustic feel to the ceremony.

Floral arrangements on the seats, and draped fabrics between the trees were the ideal backdrop for this romantic ceremony.

As part of their decor, they had vintage objects that the bride and her mother had been collecting for months. Rusty arrows, old fabrics, vintage furniture and even old doors used as seating plans, displaying their menu and detailing various timings throughout the day; details that worked beautifully to intertwine their rustic and elegant looks.

But that’s not all, on the tables they also had unique deer horns covered in flowers, mismatching vintage crockery and retro objects that married their fusion of styles in the most magical of ways.

The menu tied in perfectly to their theme, the wedding cake had a huge crown, representing their new married surname “King” and the dessert table was presented on an old Texan cart very unique and individual.
