Add a Touch of  Rustic Elegance

Bear Brook Valley-enbrace“Rustic Elegance is a mixture of nature-inspired elements and upscale décor in a romantic, indoor/outdoor setting,” says Jamie Eichvalds of Bear Brook Valley.

The property offers rustic elegance in special ways. “Bear Brook is located in a private area with outdoor seating and bistro lights, views of rolling hills off our decks, fire pits, lawn games, and custom-made Amish farm tables.”

The venue also has cross-back chairs, hardwood floors in the ballroom instead of carpets, iron and crystal chandeliers, rod and turnbuckle deck railings, and built-in lighting and sound. Jamie tells us that their natural outdoor waterfalls are “another bonus for brides who want rustic elegance.

“The brides we attract are looking for a relaxed setting, but they still want to impress their guests with state-of-the-art amenities, excellent service, and delicious food."

Rustic Elegance in Your Fashion Style

Bear Brook Valley37-flowersA couple can add rustic elegance to their wedding in many ways and in almost any space. “For your gown, veil, and/or fashion accessories, choose classic items with a touch of bohemian or a simple dress with floral elements.”

... In Your Décor

For your ceremony and reception décor, “Draw from the colors of nature’s palette and for your bouquet, you can select from mixed greenery, white roses, baby’s breath, snapdragons, and warm pops of color. You can also get rustic with your table centerpieces, choosing wood slabs, wood crates, cascading flowers and greenery, as well as mason jars, floating candles, votives, lanterns, and flower petals. There are so many touches!”

... For Your Cocktail Hour

To add a rustic feel to your cocktail hour, choose wooden crates and floral garnishes for your food displays, while for your reception, add wooden signs and simple greenery. “Favors of mini candles, wine, jars of honey or anything homemade and personalized also can add that rustic touch.” Keep your invitations and place cards simple and choose brush script fonts.

“A theme of rustic elegance gives you a base to work with, while also giving you freedom to exercise your own creativity,” says Jamie. “Everyone wants their wedding to be authentic. You can take rustic elegance in any direction, so it’s great for expressing yourself. You can lean more toward rustic, more toward a chic look, or totally put your own spin on it.”
