Green Wedding Shoes: An Ultra Stylish Boho Wedding With Subtle Vintage Vibe

Good morning lovelies. Today’s real wedding has made me come over all squeeeee! It is absolutely brimming with gorgeous, gorgeous wedding details. So much so, I’ve had to split this corker into two pretty posts!!

The first post focuses on our bride and groom. The lovely Carol & Ryan, and their relaxed [yet ultra stylish] boho wedding style. Plus their wedding photographer was the talented Tahni of Joyeuse Photography, one of my fave wedding photographers!

This one’s a total goody. You might wanna get yourself a cuppa before the droolfest commences ;)

Going into planning, I knew that I wanted our wedding to feel light, breezy, and unfussy. I’ve always loved all things vintage, but I didn’t want things to look too costume-y or feel like a movie set.

So, my goal was to find the balance – a day that was fancy and outrageously celebratory while being laid-back and genuine at the same time.

Anyone who was around for the planning process knows that I was terrible at choosing a theme or color. At the very beginning I think I narrowed it down to six colors (I know). That evolved to I don’t know, 17 or something. This blew the average Texan woman’s mind.

Eventually I just started quoting Julia Roberts in Steel Magnolias and saying “blush and bashful”! Seriously, though, I eventually just picked what I liked, even if it didn’t “go”. Don’t let the confines of a designated color scheme get you down ladies!

As for DIY, my mother (who is awesome) and I made all the chalkboard signs, cut all the napkins and fabric squares for the tables, painted furniture, created yarn garlands, and made some rockin’ paper flowers. It was definitely a labor of love, and we had a lot of fun. I couldn’t have done it without her!

At the beginning of planning I kept saying that I wanted our wedding to be completely one-of-a-kind. If it had been done before, I didn’t want it. Not too long after that, I met a bride who was echoing my sentiment. It was so off-putting.

I could tell that what she and I had in common was that we were refusing to do things we actually LOVED, all because someone else did it before us. So then and there I decided to stop being so dumb about copying things I liked.

Are chalkboard signs the most trendy thing ever? Yes. Do I love them? Yes. So, I used them. Once I gave myself that freedom I was so much happier.

I am totally in love with Carol’s style, it’s so effortless! I am also obsessed with her dress, stunning capelet and those green wedding shoes! Doesn’t she look amazing? And of course, I’m loving Ryan’s relaxed and dapper look too.

As I said, this is only the beginning! You must pop back later for part 2. It has loads of gorgeous detailing which will provide tonnes of inspiration for a fabulously fun [and incredibly stylish] wedding day. Oh, and the best dessert buffet table I. have. ever. seen.
