‘California Forest Wedding’ Simple and Organic 1970’s Bohemian Wedding Inspiration

This morning I have the most gorgeous 1970’s Bohemian Wedding Inspiration to share with you. The shoot was captured by Jamielyn Craft Photography and submitted by Natasha from 540 Weddings and Events. The shoot took place in Temecula, California last November and was filled with the most beautiful detailing. The deep jewel tones work beautifully against the light natural forest backdrop. I just adore the 1970’s vibe this shoot is giving us, you can tell that Natasha and her team at 540 Weddings and Events has drawn some pretty strong inspiration from her love of all things vintage. This shoot is perfect for any of you looking to combine some natural elements into a modern-meets-Boho wedding. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Natasha from 540 Weddings and Events tells us more about the shoot

I absolutely love Boho themed weddings! This styled shoot was inspired by the 1970’s, nature, and the Corning Ware plates my grandmother used as I was growing up! My goal was to blend old with new. I also thought about the concept of marriage and how it gets lost in planning the wedding. Some couples get stressed out and caught up in the details and forget why they fell in love. I immediately fell in love with Luna Bella Ranch, the perfect setting to display pure, simple and organic love. This shoot was created with a couple in mind who wanted to get back to nature and wanted a stress free wedding. The couple who wants to runaway with a few friends to an enchanted forest.

This venue boasts a beautiful stream and I felt this was the perfect spot to create an intimate dining experience for the couple and a few guests. The goal was to create something unique and organic. The floral designer mixed a variety of flowers with succulents which sat upon a manzanita branch which were anchored with candles.
I used vintage glasses to play on the 70’s vibe which paired well with the deep red velvet napkins. I used modern plates and bright silverware to tie in all of the elements together. The colors used were picked up in the rug and pillows which really popped against the forest background.

The focal point of the ceremony design was the couple, so no design elements were placed near the aisle. The alter was decorated using bright colors which popped against the forest and large grape vines.
I really wanted the bride to be fancy and free! And that she was! We decided to go with no shoes and no jewelry for the shoot! I chose a lace BoHo styled dress and paired it with a cognac hat. The bride boasted orange highlights in her hair which really tied into the colors of the styled shoot! The groom is wearing a deep purple suit provided by Friar’s Tux which picked up the colors in the tablescape. The cake was created with the same jewel rich tones found in the the tablescape!

I fell in love with the Boho vintage inspired coffee cart by She Brews a Latte!  Boho is a mix of vintage and new! What better way for the guests to remember this beautiful wedding than to have a vintage inspired photo booth. The guys with Valley Vintage Photo Booth actually used an old antique camera as a prop! It was great touch and tied in perfectly with the Boho theme.

This styled shoot was a labor of love! I wanted to create something unique and stunning!
