Rustic + Modern Wedding Inspiration

modern rustic wedding ideas

Influenced by the history + romance of Virgina’s Shenandoah Valley, the creative folks behind today’s styled shoot at The American Hotel set out to infuse the rustic + storied backdrop with touches of modern elements. Conceptualized and produced by The Lady Jane + Amelia Marie Design, this shoot is sure to inspire some fun ideas for mixing modern + vintage, and incorporating those ideas into your big day!

Thanks so much to Svetlana HillKovich for the beautiful photos!

Blakemore’s Flowers created the lovely arrangements in shades of deep plum, green, champagne, black, + cream and used a variety of unique vessels ranging from vintage pudding tins to old liquor bottles to depression-era glass bowls.

More about the design from The Lady Jane, We wanted the main table to be lit by candlelight, so I collected brass, silver, and glass taper holders in varying heights. Our calligrapher created signs out of reclaimed wood, and several beautiful chalkboards + our graphic designer created the menus + signage.

I’m majorly in love with this antique post office hutch, which the team repurposed as the dessert bar. It’s the perfect platform for the sweet + simple wedding cake and pretty piles of macarons!
