Wedding Design Spotlight: Cambium Farms Open House

cambium farms wedding venue

Like so many of you out there, we at Weddingstar are huge suckers for a barn wedding. So when our resident freelance stylist, Kasia of Prelude to a Kiss, asked to include some of our products within a design she was pulling together for a local barn venue’s Bridal Open House, we naturally jumped at the chance to get involved.  And when you see the resulting images from Mugshots Photography (another resident freelancer), you’ll see why we are thrilled that we did! The final design came together as the perfect blend of old meets new in one of the best barns we’ve ever seen. The use of unique touches of unpredictable elegance put a fresh spin on a traditional rustic space, with Weddingstar products playing a fantastic accompanying decor role. It’s no wonder that all who attended the Cambium Farms event couldn’t get enough of the unique space and set-up.

Now it’s your turn to get inspired and pick up some stylist tips on how to make the look yours. Get ready to swoon!

stylist tip: just because your space is rustic doesn’t mean your event design has to be. consider going with a slightly contrasting but complimentary look to really wow your guests. this design featured a clean and modern predominately white color palette, elegant crystal details, and couture chairs.

DIY Wedding Wednesday: Stylish Sippers

The official start to Summer is just around the corner and with it will come a flood of gorgeous summer weddings, so we figured it’s time to start featuring some appropriately swoon-worthy and warm weather worthy posts. Today we’re kicking off our Summer series with a DIY paper straw feature that infuses a wedding staple, the delicious signature drink, with both style and personality. We’ve pulled together three varied looks but with just a simple change in straw or ribbon color, charm accessory or tag, the looks are limitless. DIY Wedding Wednesdays are my favorite day of the week, regardless of what’s being featured. But when the feature involves a little cocktail mixing and champagne toasting, let’s just say it makes the day that much enjoyable! Cheers!
