The sophistication of gold with the natural textures of rattan and wicker harmonize in an elegant boho look in Blacksmith Main of the Northern Pacific Center in Brainerd. Bloom Designs created a hanging installation with dried grasses and flowers, with a soft color gradient going from vanilla tones to deep corals, flanked by woven lanterns from PHOS Events. The head table florals mirror the installation, with complementary hues in the tapers.

Who wouldn’t smile in this dreamy gown? “Lalibela” by Yumi Katsura from Bridal Accents Couture is a study in sweet elegance. The bride looks ready to levitate in the natural light of Luminary, one of NPC’s ceremony sites. Sprightly arrangements featuring dried florals, pampas grass and painted ranunculus by Sadie’s Floral Couture accent the open, airy space.

Flatware glows beside stoneware and rattan chargers on a frothy ivory tablecloth.

The welcome sign signals the joy of the day, framing a dynamic display of grasses and dried palms.

The stationery suite draws inspiration from seasonal colors: a terra cotta-colored invitation, with a rustic belly band and jute cord. The pink reply cards with deep red type hint at the rose-toned florals throughout the venue.

This peacock chair decked out with painted protea, taupe and coral roses, baby’s breath and palms, is fit for a queen—or a heavenly cake from Cold Spring Bakery with buttercream icing and coordinating florals.

Exchange your vows in style. The deconstructed arch by Sadie’s Couture Floral makes generous use of big, romantic antike garden roses, cappuccino roses, matilda berry roses and painted baby’s breath. Girl Friday used an assortment of caned circles to create the accompanying sculptural element, adding a fun, contemporary edge.

The palest blush blossoms join striking cappuccino roses, orchids, white lisianthus and the cutest miniature pineapples in this bouquet by Petals & Beans.

Casual elegance is the name of this reception game. Rattan-wrapped candle holders pair with sleek, colorful tapers, while the runner is simplicity itself—layered cheesecloth in three colors, for a breezy, relaxed vibe.

Plumes of pampas grass sweep skyward, drawing the eye to the seating charts by Girl Friday, themselves decked in fall hues, with a lightly draping smaller floral spray defining the innovative display.
