Design Your Dream Home with the Crate and Barrel Wedding Registry

Crate & Barrel Wedding Registry

While registering can just be flat-out fun, it’s also the perfect opportunity for the two of you to start to decide what your dream home looks like, and blend your individual styles to achieve a space that’s unique to you as a couple. Even if you’ve been living together for a while, chances are that hand-me-down couch you got in college, the cheap, chipped dishes in your cabinets, and the decorative objects around your place could probably all use a little upgrade. That’s why we love how Crate and Barrel’s wedding registry is filled with all the elevated basics you’ll need, plus exclusive items – including handmade objects from talented artisans – that will help you design a look for your home that’s beautiful + one-of-a-kind.

If we were lucky enough to be registering now ourselves, we’d probably focus on the rooms that are the most expensive + most difficult to furnish: the dining room, living room and bedroom. A little help with some of those big ticket items (like rugs, bedroom furniture and a couch) will go a long way, and the fun decorative objects you can add to your registry will help you accessorize your gorgeous, newly-designed home. We’d also definitely take advantage of the fact that Crate and Barrel offers their couples a 10% discount on all remaining items on their registry, too.

Rainy Day Treehouse Wedding: Katie + Eli

Golden Age Treehouse Wedding

The beautiful bride from today’s wedding, Katie, is a talented artist whose watercolor work has graced countless weddings over the years. To no surprise, this creative lady adorned her own wedding celebration with hand-painted whimsy, unique decor elements and an ethereal, artful vibe. She + Eli dreamed of a setting where wildflowers would be tucked into every corner, fig and honey drenched desserts would be served, butterflies, vines and wild berries would be woven throughout, and custom crafted signature whiskey would be enjoyed by all.

Thanks to their dreamy ideas + the execution by Ceylon Blu, their enchanting vision came to life and Wildflowers Photography was there to perfectly capture it all!

first look

Katie shares, The theme of our day was the “Golden Age Wedding.” The Golden Age is often referred to as a time where everything was gilded and idyllic – a time of peace and harmony. I was greatly inspired by Dutch Golden Age still life paintings that often portray wild floral arrangements, fruit, and insects buzzing about.

The rain! Our photographers had taken us into the forest before the ceremony to take snaps on a huge mossy tree that had fallen in the creek. During these photos, the rain started pouring down! It was refreshing and magical. We were soaked, my dress was dirty, but it all felt right and as it should be.

Go with the flow! Things will happen that will be out of your control, but if you get upset it’ll just make them worse. Adopt a creative, positive attitude when things don’t go the way you envisioned. But mostly, remember that the day is about the two of you and your love. Nothing is as important as standing before your sweetheart and exchanging heartfelt words of love and unity.

Rustic Camp Elopement Inspiration

Rustic Camp Elopement

We know we’ve mentioned it a time or two (or maybe/probably/definitely more) that we just love a good camp wedding. There’s something about blending the great outdoors with a few personal details and romantic vignettes that seems to make everything feel right in the world. The team behind today’s styled shoot – James & Katie Stokes behind the lens + Et Voilà Events behind the design – chose to utilize the dreamy backdrop of Forest Springs in Westboro, Wisconsin and fill the setting with lots of beautiful, boho design elements.

But there’s a fun twist to this editorial that only makes us love it more! Allison from Et Voilà and her soon-to-be-husband actually modeled for the shoot as well :) These two, set to wed later this year, pretty much killed it in the model department! Let’s have a deeper look at the design…

From Et VoilàFrom the fresh floral headdress to the woodsy camp setting, this editorial was a labor of love and was special to us for so many reasons. Our goal was to create a camp styled elopement with a romantic, rustic feel to the details. The warm glow from assorted lanterns, a beautifully designed sweetheart table, draped with lush white pine and seeded eucalyptus, and a sunset canoe ride, followed by gourmet campfire s’mores made for some swoon-worthy photos.

We’re all heart eyes for that bouquet by Fawn Mueller, which popped perfectly against Allison’s ethereal Jenny Yoo gown.
