A Very Rustic Wedding | Nikki & Josh

Many trends come and go, just within a matter of months, but the “rustic” trend is one that we see so often and seems to be timeless. Nikki and Josh’s wedding at Keswick Vineyards on August 18, 2018 was exactly that. They had a unique eye for making their wedding have that “barn-like” and vineyard wedding feel.

Nikki and Josh used various pieces of wood to create signs that were used throughout their wedding. My personal favorite sign was a “I’ll be your glass of wine, you’ll be my shot of whiskey,” sign that was placed on the bar, as well as, a sign stating the dates of their love story. How cute!

In addition to all of the signs that Nikki and Josh used, they also had a mason jar frame, where guests could sign wooden hearts to place within it. Typically, you see a simple frame for guests to drop hearts into, but this was such a great idea, that, again, added to the whole rustic theme of their wedding. Not only did the sign seem rustic, but the backing of it was also lavender, which composed their color scheme.

As guests transitioned from the dreamy ceremony that was placed directly in front of our beautiful fountain location, a table with mason jars awaited them prior to entering into cocktail hour. On each mason jar, which read, “Eat, Drink, and Be Married,” guests found their name and table number to determine where they would be seated. After all, what is a rustic wedding without mason jars?

Nikki was clearly creative in all of her wedding ideas, but the icing on the cake was the centerpieces that she created. She took hours to tie yarn around wine bottles in order to create her three wine bottle centerpieces with florals that reflected her color scheme. I don’t think that we’ve seen a wedding this year that has spent that much time in order to create their dream wedding!

Guests were able to enjoy the three-tier naked cake for the remainder of the night and sip on Keswick Vineyards’ award-winning wine while they danced the night away. Nikki and Josh’s wedding could not be more perfect! Congratulations to the happy couple!
