Don’t you love it when Mother Nature does some of the decorating for you?
Taryn + Ivan decided to say “I do” surrounded by the beautiful, changing Fall foliage in North Carolina, and venue Carolina Grove provided the perfect setting for the couple’s romantic indoor/outdoor celebration.
With the help of Timeless Love Weddings & Events, Taryn + Ivan created a boho celebration full of muted clay tones and neutral accents that highlighted the natural, autumnal beauty of the surrounding woods. And photographer Mackenzie Callaghan was there snapping gorgeous photos of this effortlessly enchanted wedding!
We’re loving the fairytale-style script on this white and neutral invitation suite from Minted.
Taryn’s girls were all rocking these classic champagne bridesmaid’s robes for the getting ready portion of the day. Check out our bridesmaid gift guide if you’re trying to decide what to treat your besties to on your big day.
Taryn had tried on 10 gowns at Lana Addison Bridal. Each time she’d shared with her mom and sister the things she liked about the dress and the things she wasn’t so crazy about. But when she tried on dress number 11, she only had good things to say! That’s how she knew this plunge neckline off-the-shoulder lace gown was the one!!
Can’t get enough of this stunning sage mother of the bride look! Take a peek at some of our favorite mother of the bride dresses .
Nothing warms our hearts like a bridesmaid first look moment ❤️
Taryn + Ivan wanted their wedding party colors to mirror the changing leaves! Taryn’s girls snagged these satin bridesmaids’ dresses from Revelry. Get into our lists of our fave terracotta bridesmaid dresses and rose gold bridesmaid dresses to recreate this warm, Fall bridal party palette.
Joneswell Flowers filled the day with white and light neutral blooms that amped up the airy romance of the woodsy mid-Autumn surroundings.
This precious high-security ring bearer took his job VERY seriously.
Processional: "All My Life" by K-Ci & JoJo + "At Last" by Etta James

First Dance: "Tennessee Whiskey" by Chris Stapleton
Live in the moment! Not just on your wedding day, but through the entire planning process. One thing you will realize is you get so caught up in waiting to get to the day of the wedding, that you forget the days before. There were so many moments where we became overwhelmed but we realized that the planning process is such a special period of time where we are coming together and making everlasting memories with our family and friends to plan such a transformational moment in our lives. Don’t take a single moment for granted, even the super frustrating ones! Wedding planning truly makes the entire experience of the wedding.
Love all the light wood guest seating! What a great way to keep this all-white barn venue feeling bright and open.
Rentals from Curated Events turned the reception space into a romantic boho dream. Love the floral explosion around this textured linen sweetheart table!!
From getting ready with our wedding party to dancing all night long, we had many moments that we will cherish forever. One moment that will stick out forever was the bride’s dad asking for the wedding couple's blessing to renew his vows with his wife, the bride’s mom. This took place as a surprise during the ‘anniversary dance’ and was very special given the intimate gathering of all the couples close family and friends.
Congratulations, Taryn + Ivan!! Your woodsy wedding was beyond romantic! All the best from GWS!
