We’re wrapping up another gorgeous week here at GWS with a beautiful boho mountain wedding held at The Vineyards at Betty’s Creek in Asheville, North Carolina. Those cuties above, Sarah + Drew, wanted to create a laid-back, intimate vibe for their wedding, and so they teamed up with Smash Events Inc. to collab on ideas that helped make their day both memorable + unique. We’re (not surprisingly) totally into the artsy, bohemian feel of their day and – from the dress to the backdrop to the perfectly styled reception space – we think you’ll find a ton to pin and be inspired by!
Sarah says, The theme was Artsy Bohemian. We wanted to make sure our wedding showcased our personalities, so I decided to make most of the wedding decor and signs to really make it unique and personal to us. We also both agreed on what mattered most to us- Music, food, photography and a laid-back intimate vibe. This helped us figure out where to spend the most money and helped put into perspective what was important and what wasn’t.
Thanks a bunch to MorningWild Photography for the lovely snaps below!
The back of this dress?! Endless high fives!!! It’s by Elizabeth Fillmore for our fellow admirers :)
Seeing each other for the first time during our first look. That was the moment everything became real and all of the wedding day stress disappeared.
We love Sarah’s protea bouquet and gorge, boho headpiece by Luminous Soul Designs! Shop more of our current fave headpieces in the guide below:
For the ceremony, we wanted to do a unity ritual but felt like the more “traditional” and common ones didn’t speak to us at all. Instead, we decided to complete a painting together to symbolize our commitment and unity, and now we can hang it in our home. We chose an amazing 5 piece Bluegrass band (Gallatin Canyon) to perform for the entire wedding. They were incredible and really set the tone for the whole event. Having live music was important to us and we’re so glad we did.
The dip-dyed shibori details gracing the tablescapes have us all heart-eyed. Smash Events Inc. nailed it with the loose, unstructured florals and the talented bride, Sarah, designed the beautiful menus and paper goods. We love how it all turned out!

Make the wedding about the 2 of you and what you love. Figure out what's important in the beginning, and design the wedding around that.
