Olivia + Josh’s boho wedding took place on the shores of the Hood Canal in the Pacific Northwest at the peak of the Fall season. The couple chose to marry at Alderbrook Resort & Spa, south of Seattle, where sweeping views of the fjord and the Olympic Mountain Range stunned the couple and guests alike. Olivia + Josh meticulously wove their boho Fall theme throughout the details of their special day, from their dramatic florals to their wedding ceremony tent, built just for them, to their moody color palette and their wedding reception under the stars of the Pacific Northwest.
Boho Bridal Style
Olivia was the epitome of a boho chic bride with her effortless beauty, tumbling tresses and her incorporation of elements of nature into her look. Olivia commissioned her florist, Brier + Ivy, to create floral earrings made from stunning dried blooms.
The bride’s dress had this gorgeous plunging neckline with mesh overlay and the most dramatic bell sleeves. And the bride’s bouquet incorporated dark and dramatic florals with a textured loose and wild feel with trailing velvet ribbon.
The bridal party completed the Fall aesthetic with the bridesmaids wearing black gowns in different styles and fabrics with their hair styled long and loose. The groom and his groomsmen wore black suits with black ties and boutonnieres with a single bud and greenery wrapped with raw ribbon.
The couple’s cool style could also be seen in these custom jean jackets they commissioned for their bridesmaids featuring a mermaid that reflected the location of their wedding venue on the water so perfectly!
Cool & Creative Ceremony
Olivia + Josh incorporated an eclectic mix of natural, rustic and vintage details into the design of their wedding ceremony. Guests gathered in the wedding ceremony tent that was installed just for Olivia + Josh. Inside the tent, the beautiful chuppah stood, with mismatched boho style rugs underneath for the couple to stand on, making the ultimate bridal boho style statement. Gorgeous fall foliage covered the chuppah to complete the look. And a sweet and special touch here. The chuppah had the talits of Josh + his father’s Bar Mitzvah hanging over the two of them throughout the ceremony.
The florist also hung the most stunning dried fern fronds over the chandeliers in the gorgeously draped tent.
After Olivia + Josh were introduced as the newly married couple, guests were greeted with an oyster bar, the most copious charcuterie board, and fun end of summer drinks at the bar.
Moody & Rich Reception
For the wedding reception, we transformed the ceremony tent into this gorgeous, dramatic and moody dinner for guests. So we added a few touches of luxury to the boho vibe. For example, gold flatware, tapered candles, and garland full of seasonal fruits like squash and pomegranates created the wedding reception tables and place settings.
Olivia also commissioned the cutest wooden ornaments from Songbird Paperie to serve as place cards for guests at their seats, complete with a colored velvet ribbon to indicate their meal selection.
After dinner and toasts guests made their way into the hotel’s ballroom to dance the night away. Of course, it’s not a Jewish party without a Hora! And in closing, to bring the event full circle, guests enjoyed late night hotdogs, and then tucked into their hotel rooms and dreamt of all the beauty and love that Fall brings us.
Congratulations to Olivia + Josh!
Until next time!
