What three adjectives best describe your wedding day? Vintage, Rustic, and Elegant/Earthy

Was there a decor theme that ran through your wedding? What was the inspiration for that particular idea and how did it reflect you as a couple? I wanted a vintage, rustic feel with lots of elegance. My husband is Persian so our ceremony had a unique blend of traditional Iranian elements and Western traditions. It was important to me that my family understand the symbolism of the Persian customs during the ceremony, so having a custom-made program was a huge necessity. Our paper designer, Sarah Sorrentino of Foglio Press, did an amazing job with our programs and capturing the overall feel of our special day. Foglio designed each paper element of the whole wedding – from our engagement party, to our wedding suites and thank-yous. Her work was absolutely stunning and our guests raved about her attention to detail.

What were some of the different ways you used decor elements to create the beautiful, cohesive event you were envisioning? LVL Events! Lindsay was amazing and steered us towards professionals who matched our style and aesthetic to a tee. Our gorgeous florals embodied the rustic feel we wanted perfectly and our photographer, Focus Photography Inc., and videographer, Lovebirds Film, captured our memories with a very organic, and beautiful simplicity. The Event Company’s lighting truly brought a romantic touch to our evening and helped set the night’s elegant mood.

Where did you choose to hold your wedding, and how did the location influence your decor decisions? We wanted an outdoor venue–and were adamantly against a reception hall. Lindsay from LVL approached us with a breathtaking estate full of charm and romance. The space was gorgeous, full of greenery, and large enough to enable smooth transitions between events throughout the evening. We used the main grass area for the ceremony and moved our guests up to a pool area for the cocktail hour. Afterwards, guests were escorted down a little dirt pathway to a different area of the main lawn for dinner. Fruit and tea were served in the barn.

We had a few vignettes set up around the estate for our guests to enjoy and they really seemed to highlight the vintage elements of our day.
