{shoot} rustic burlap inspiration

Inspired by organic texture, reminiscent of the tactile diversity in nature, material composition of burlap, sheet metal, and wood were used to create this rustic ode to romance.  Emily Carter of Emily Carter Floral Design with Sharyn Peavey of Sharyn Peavey Photography combined these elements, against the pastoral setting of a barn amidst rolling green hills, as a design concept for this style shoot.  For the ceremony panels of burlap were hung with circular cutouts to allow natural light to stream in and reflect off of metal flowers with yellow craspedia centers.  Birch trees were propped within the barn for a more intimate and inviting setting.  The quality of bringing the outdoors, inside.  The bride and groom  were surrounded by a circle of rope, detailed with smilax and peonies, to reinforce the beauty of tying the knot.
The tablescape highlights reused and vintage materials.  Adorned with tin ceiling tiles as chargers, antique silver creamers and sugars, as well as wood containers for flowers.  The centerpiece, distressed wooden planks and moss wrapped votives atop a burlap runner.  The seating an unexpected mix of hay bales elevated on old wooden drawers with a linen covering.
