Sara & Mitch Wedding – Reception – The Foundry – Craig Paulson Studio
Guests gathered for cocktail hour to raise the first of many toasts to newlyweds Sara & Mitch. Then everyone headed to The Foundry’s courtyard for an unforgettable evening of revelry. Here, featured bride Sara shares the final chapter in her Real BB Wedding story.
From the very start, there was a sense that Sara and Mitch intended their reception to be an occasion for everyone to cut-loose and have fun. Sara looks back and says, “There were so many details we included that meant a lot to us. Music was a big one. The music that Mitch and I and our wedding party walked into was symphony versions of pop-punk songs we love, but only a handful of people probably recognized.” Read More
When it comes to designing a wedding, brides dream about a day where every decorative flourish is flawlessly executed. At the same time, it’s refreshing to add touches that are little unexpected, fun, and show your personality. One way to show your creative side is by incorporating wedding favors into the decorative scenery. You’ll be amazed by how little details like vibrant packaging, festive colored treats, and thoughtful keepsakes work to enhance both the look and feel of your wedding.
Of course you’ll want to save some of your wedding flowers, but not all of them! Encourage guests to take home floral centerpieces by placing blooms in charming vintage cans or in vases displayed on a cake stand. Read More

1. of or relating to the countryside; rural.
2. constructed or made in a plain and simple fashion; in particular.
Considering the actual meaning of the term, “rustic” weddings can end up being more elaborate and expensive than the more traditionally-styled weddings that people usually associate with being generally over-the-top. With the warmer months upon us, barn weddings that mix outdoor elements with a cozy, casual indoor setting are abundant.
The rustic theme is a blank canvas, offering tons of opportunities for you to lend your own creative touch to the decor. You can even collaborate with your florist to pair custom floral designs in your color palette with handmade decor elements to take the DIY wedding trend to the next level.
