Wood accents and a neutral color palette of white and green created the rustic, yet elegant vibe Libby and Alex craved for their summer nuptials.

Wood accents and a neutral color palette of white and green created the rustic, yet elegant vibe Libby and Alex craved for their summer nuptials.

Libby spent her summers in Michigan with family, so it was a fitting location for their August wedding. We chose a beautiful 160 acre llama farm that sits on the same lake as our house is on, she says.
The couple had their seating chart written on the glass panes of an old window. Hanging votives and small plants added interest to the display.
Faux trees were created around the tent poles, giving the appearance that the trees were supporting the tent. We then drilled fresh branches into the trees so it smelled like you were in the middle of a forest, says Libby. Twinkle lights, wrapped around the trees, added a romantic glow to the space.
The ivory wedding cake was displayed on a tree stump, beneath a chalkboard with the couple's initials written on it.
A single succulent rested in the center of the china place settings. Green napkins and clear chargers added texture for an elegant, yet rustic tablescape.
Following the ceremony, the couple recessed to Here Comes the Sun from The Beatles.
The couple kept their attire simple, with Alex in a navy blue suit and striped tie from Hugo Boss and Libby in a classic Vera Wang gown with a chiffon skirt.
Libby's eight bridesmaids wore gray, floor-length Monique Lhuillier gowns with their choice of accessories.
Libby's bridesmaids carried rustic bunches of roses, hydrangeas, stock and dusty miller.
The outside of the barn, where the cocktail hour was held, was already perfectly decorated with white hydrangea bushes flanking the front door and lovely greenery and landscaping.
The couple, mindful of the summer heat, offered guests three different drinks during the outdoor ceremony.
Libby chose a classic look, donning a strapless white Vera Wang gown with a beaded sash. She wore her hair in a low bun, and accented the style with a vintage diamond clip that had belonged to her great grandmother.
Textured ivory tablecloths topped tall tables which were placed outside the barn during the cocktail hour. The tables were lit from underneath, giving a soft glow to the decor.
