Something about burlap and lace just works. It’s a little vintage, a little rustic, a little girly – but with an edge. Carefully selecting textures can go a long way when styling and planning a wedding. Loretta and David describe themselves as an easy-going couple, and wanted their wedding “to feel relaxed and comfortable, with a casual atmosphere.” Infusing burlap in the table runners and bunting, Loretta was also sure to balance it with lace around her bouquet, their cake, and doilies in the tablescape. She sourced mason jars, a birdcage and milk glass from antique stores and purchased their “Happily Ever After” sign from Etsy to complete the relaxed energy they were aiming for. David and Loretta were also lucky enough to have the talents of their friends and family in their day – their cake was made by a family friend, the flowers were styled by Loretta’s aunt, and the cake stand was created by her father from a large piece of eucalyptus. The majority of the remaining elements were crafted by the lovely couple.
