Irvine Nature Center Wedding by Kait Bailey Photography
Authentic Fall Bohemian Wedding
Today, we feature an absolutely stunning wedding brimming with beautiful details and elements of nature. A free-spirited, fete held at an eco-sustainable venue. Yes, please! Throw in hand-made decor, gorgeous florals, and one fun-loving, environmentally conscious couple and we have a wedding worth writing about.
After you’ve made all the big wedding day decisions, remember the tiniest details like your choice of earrings, shoes and even fragrance can offer a big impact. Your wedding day is about feeling like the most beautiful version of yourself. Stay true to you when planning your big day!
Adding dried elements like the Poppy and Scabiosa pods seen here, add warmth to this lovely Fall bouquet. A natural gathering of white Astilbe and Ranunculus, kelly green Dianthus, Seeded Eucalyptus, plus Silver Brunia and Hypericum Berries make for a highly textured, elegant bouquet.
Nothing is more lovely than considering your guests comfort and nothing is more comforting than offering the warmth of a blanket, on a cool Autumn day. Plus, how cute do they look gathered in wooden crates?
Breathtaking florals coupled with airy macrame hangings create the perfect ceremony site and marry abundance with simplicity beautifully.
Dreamcatchers, made by the Bride, add depth and style to an otherwise plain tent ceiling. The mostly white palette is beautifully interrupted with a tufted, pale blue, velvet settee and colorful floor pillows.
A completely unique spin on Mr. and Mrs. Chairs adding macrame hangings as chairbacks! This sweetheart table looks super sweet with a romantic, oil lantern and oversized, mixed green garland.
The understated cake is dressed up with coordinating florals. Again, we see that vibrant green Dianthus adding a mossy, outdoorsy element. This is how a floral cake topper is done! So much texture and detail create a mini-arrangement that is both eye-catching and subtle.
Dreamcatchers add an ethereal quality to a large, white tent. An installation, such as this, bring so much personality and movement to a space. Gold-dipped, white feathers dancing overhead are dreamy, indeed.
Accents of navy blue and gold bring depth to the color palette, perfect for a Fall wedding.
The Irvine Nature Center offers an abundance of scenic views for a nature loving couple.
Sharing Sioux beliefs, regarding how dreamcatchers serve their culture, is a fun (and informative) way to include your guests in the wedding day. I am certain sweet dreams were abundant after this event.
A purple amethyst crystal for calm, balance and peace is always a good idea on your wedding day. Surround yourself with people (and things) you love on your big day. Listen to a favorite song, take a morning walk, burn a scented candle while you’re getting dressed. All these moments create the memories of your day.
White linens and a white tent provide the perfect canvas for a wedding like this where color is playful and varied. While there is enough consistency in the color palette (white, green, and shades of blue) to establish an earthy vibe, the couple shared pops of color like the red lanterns and colorful pillows and blankets to keep things interesting.
An Autumnal view effortlessly sets the stage for the ceremony.

This wedding balances indulgence and simplicity and illustrates how with some creative ingenuity, you can have a gorgeous wedding that’s decadent in all the right places. A few enchanting vignettes like the suspended dreamcatchers and seating assignment display are intriguing and memorable.
The couple also chose to use florals, sparingly, but with full impact using mixed greenery throughout the space and focussing on a notable bridal bouquet, bold ceremony florals, and an impressive cake topper. Using nature’s scenery and a traditional white backdrop (the tent) color and details were used to perfection to create a classic, bohemian wedding day.
