Did you see Part 1 of this Nature-Filled Mammoth Mountain Wedding this morning? If not, pop on over there for a bunch of pretty details, photographed by Paige Jones, then head back here for the reception + more!! Taryn + Eric absolutely love the outdoors and they wanted to share their favorite place with all of their friends, so naturally they headed up to Mammoth Mountain for their big day! Brimming with greenery, wildflowers and nature-inspired elements, their special day definitely highlighted the beauty of the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Their planner + designer, Lace and Likes, shares I ran with Taryn’s love for neutrals and everything simple + modern. Taryn’s got a cool overall bohemian-edge to her, so naturally, her wedding did, too. We incorporated one long main table — enough for about 50 guests. Then we put together several lounges for the remaining guests; along with loads of Gunn & Swain blankets, pillows, and other cozy elements for a playful mixture of seating options to develop the relaxed vibe of our “backyard party”. We used a lot of black + leather, too; one of my favorite elements of the day was the black and white checkered dance floor. I think it really anchored the whole event design.
Let’s proceed to the party, shall we?
All the wild + foraged florals by Siren Floral Co.!!
So, so sweet. If you look closely, you can get a glimpse of the custom Adidas shoes that Eric rocked!
The signage, invitiations + dance floor decal were all done by Alex Design Co..
LOVE the relaxed simplicity of this edgy modern-boho lounge created with pieces from Witty Rentals.
Taryn’s manicure is just too good! We’re definitely Pinning this one for later. :)
Hostess Haven provided gorgeous glasses, flatware and tabletop goods for the day… Including hand-dyed napkins!
Knottery Art surprised the bride with these darling mini ombré macrame favors! How sweet is that?
All the black and white details!!
The dresses + fringe bags for the flower girls are custom-made from Cleobella.
Instead of a cake, the couple opted for cookies from Mimi’s Cookie Bar. YUM!!
Don't worry about things you think you have to do — there are no rules! We didn't do a seating chart, I had both my parents walk me down the aisle, we skipped having the bridal party, we had cookies instead of a cake... Do what you want and what makes the two of you happy. Just remember to be excited, even when the planning process can be a bit overwhelming... There's nothing better than marrying your best friend and having all of your favorite people in one place to celebrate the two of you! Take a bunch of mental snapshots (and real pictures) of everyone having fun and dancing. It makes all the hard work worth it!
Taryn shares The night turned into one epic dance party thanks to Dart Collective… At one point, the weather started to change and it began to sprinkle a little as we were all dancing outside… At first it was a major “uh oh” moment, but the rain never poured, just a few drops here and there. It ended up being such a magical moment! Oh and the bride’s awesome fringe jacket? It’s by Cleobella.
So gorgeous, right?! Congrats Taryn + Eric!!
