A Vintage-Boho Outdoor Wedding in South Carolina
After six year of dating, Riley and Carson Young wed on the golf course where they met with their high school golf team—but they turned it into a beautiful venue. "If I could describe our wedding with a few words, I would probably say bohemian, intimate and relaxed," Riley says. "I didn't want anything about our day to feel too formal—just a day to be around the people who mean the most to us." The color palette included tan, mauve and gold, and the couple also threw in hints of turquoise, reds and pinks. Riley designed her own formfitting, two-piece dress with ruffle sleeves and bohemian lace. The bridesmaids wore mismatched dresses in shades of orange, while the flower girls looked adorable in simple white lace dresses with lace-up boots and greenery crowns. Carson sported a light brown suit with a burnt-mustard wool tie. The outdoor ceremony took place beneath a dogwood wildflower wedding arch, and rugs added color to the aisle. "The scenery outside with a lot of greens and a pond behind us made it easy for us to keep the ceremony very minimal," Riley says. A live artist captured it all with a painting. Reception décor included macramé pieces, rugs on the dance floor, wood signs and mismatched vases of pampas grass and wheat. To maintain the simple vibe, the couple served up comfort food: Papa John's pizza, chips and queso dip, buffalo wings and desserts made by family and friends.
