decorating ideas for a black tie bohemian wedding

Smitten loved (and published!) this Americana ranch wedding that’s a seemless mashup of elegant black tie formality and bohemian California chic. The credit all belongs to the bride, who is a stylist and made our day with her amazing creations including…

A full-on recreated General Store that during cocktail hour served as a custom whiskey bar tricked out with antiques and the couples’ favorite scotch whiskeys (a dozen different labels).

Take inspiration with the following photographs of this unique Healdsburg wedding!

The bride and groom made the signage, including the big sign at the entrance to the ranch.  Other details include a crazy variety of stuff that when put together all made sense, very stylish sense!  Macrame, agaves, zinnias, pinks and oranges, blues and greens, yet somehow with a clean, white palette to balance all the colors, ikat pillows, Native American vintage photos, horseshoes, antlers, dream catchers, old Western magazines, barbed wire samples, horse figurines, a vintage cash register, long rustic wood tables, a multi-colored  latch rug, striped zarape blankets, cowskulls, crossback chairs, a bluegrass band, painted rocks for escort cards, a school bus to deliver everyone to the ranch, trees with wishes, Jarritos, martinis, bbq and arepas (thanks to Smoke Open Fire Catering for the pretty yummies to photograph!), a Just Married golf cart, old Westerns playing on the tent wall and cake from Susie Cakes.

I’m sure I’m forgetting something.  The scope of what she did was breathtaking.  I would love for others to benefit from her vision, to be inspired, so please share this!
