California chic met woodsy bohemian vibes in this unbelievably gorgeous North Carolina wedding at The Cabin Ridge! Sue and Brian pulled out all the stops for their special day, and the talented team of Cordial & Craft Event Production and Floral Design along with Party Envy Event Planning helped bring their vision to life. Using the classic boho macrame, cacti, succulents, pampas grass, and rugs, the team set up the sweetest outdoor ceremony overlooking the mountains. For their reception, they used a mix of vintage and rustic seating, antique china place setting, lace, eucalyptus table runners, and mismatched glassware to add a distinctly woodsy boho feel to the open-air space. They even managed to add DIY signage, nods to their favorite holiday, Cinco de Mayo, and references to Back to the Future — and made it all look wildly elegant! We’re positive we’ll be obsessing over the boho perfection Gabrielle von Heyking Photographie captured for a very long time!

Gabby, the owner of The Graham House Asheville, was the best host and her Airbnb was by far the cutest space! She was beyond accommodating to us knowing that we were having guests over for a gathering or two. Also, her space was just adorable!
The most memorable part of the entire day was our first look, during which we shared our written vows with each other.
Our best advice is to remain calm and always remember what all the wedding planning is actually for. Remember that this a day about you and your spouse-to-be — and only the two of you! Don’t focus so much on pleasing others or trying to not upset anyone. That will take a toll on not only you and your fiancé, and it’s just not worth it. Your love and the joining of two people in love is what matters most!
Cinco de Mayo is our favorite holiday, and mustaches are a staple for us when we celebrate that day. So, we gave our guests mustache party favors. We also gave them candied apples because we were married in the Hendersonville area where all of the apple orchards are located.
