A couple of weeks ago I posted a photo on Instagram of the head table at my daughter’s wedding. I had several questions and comments about it and it occurred to me I have never done a blog post about her wedding. So, I want to share the most beautiful boho wedding ceremony with you.
Of course, I am a bit biased, but follow along, and see what you think.
And on Thursday, I will be sharing the photos and details of the boho wedding reception. You don’t want to miss that!!
First of all, it was an evening that fairytales are made of!!
It was a Sunday evening in late October, and it had stormed all during the night before the wedding. The ceremony was to be outdoors and I remember praying during the night that the rain would pass.
We woke to clear skies, and the temperature was perfect! We could not have ordered better weather.
the wedding venue

The venue is the most magical white barn called, The White Sparrow. It is on some land and far from other homes or structures and to the side of the barn is a lavender field with an adorable greenhouse in the center.
“first look” photos
The “first look” photos were taken among the lavender and beside the greenhouse.
the “would be” bridesmaids
The bride, my daughter, has so many friends and female cousins, she couldn’t choose who would be her bridesmaids. Either she would have had about 15 ladies standing with her or some hurt feelings, so she opted for no bridesmaids.
Since the bride and groom are both only children, this was a perfect solution!
She included all of her friends and cousins at all of the get togethers, showers, bachlorette weekend and getting ready before the wedding. A couple of the close friends helped plan things and make some decisions.
The bride chose a neutral color scheme for the wedding and asked the ladies to wear a dress in a neutral color. She suggested they wear something they already had rather than having to buy something new.
We could not believe how beautiful all of the dresses looked together for the photo. It looked as if they were carefully chosen to all work together.
the “would be” groomsmen
And the grooms friends were asked to do the same. Don’t they all look so handsome raising a toast to the groom?
the wedding ceremony
The bride and groom also decided they wanted all the small children in the family to participate in the ceremony. Since there were two that were too little to walk, the mom or an older child carried them down the aisle.
boho ceremony decor
A sweet friend of mine made an 8 foot tall macrame backdrop and her husband made a wooden stand so it could be free standing. White roses and eucalyptus adorned the top, and large cactus in white urns stood on either side of the backdrop.
The ceremony took place outdoors behind the beautiful White Sparrow Barn. We rented mismatched vintage chairs and benches for the guests to be seated on, and bundles of eucalyptus hung on the aisle chair on every other row.
When I was 17 years old my husband gave me a vintage wicker plant stand for a birthday gift. I still have it, and we used it to place the bride’s bouquet in during the ceremony, since she didn’t have attendants standing with her.
Copper lanterns hung randomly from trees overhead. And one of my daughters closest friends played the cello along with a guitarist and a violinst during the ceremony.
We rented 3 vintage kilim rugs and layered them at different angles over a jute rug of mine, and placed them right in front of the macrame backdrop for the bride and groom to stand on during the ceremony.
the brides gown and bouquet
I thought the dress she chose was perfect for her style and a boho style wedding! It was custom made at Dreamers and Lovers in California.
The bride opted for no flowers for the wedding other than the large protea in the center of her bouquet and the white roses on the macrame backdrop.
After the ceremony, the bride, groom and the families all gathered for photos, and the wedding guests were invited to a cocktail hour on the patio of the White Sparrow Barn.
I hope you enjoyed the details of the most beautiful boho style wedding ceremony. If you enjoyed the post, be sure and check back on Thursday for the most magical boho style wedding reception.
