I love transforming spaces, and I enjoy helping people take the vision they have for their wedding and turning it into a reality. It is exciting to be hired by a client with creativity. This rustic wedding was an amazing culmination of the mother of the bride and I. We worked together to create a magical event for the guests to enjoy.
The challenge for this wedding reception was how to make an indoor venue look like an outdoor rustic woodland. I started by draping the ceiling and perimeter with chiffon (my signature style). Masking the space with fabric helped to create a neutral background that allowed the “woodland” elements to pop.

We ordered poster- sized prints from Costco and wrapped them around a homemade wood frame to create a canvas look on the cheap.

Trees, shrubs and twinkle lights finish off the look.
