Cheese and Wine Filled Modern Rustic Wedding Inspiration
We recently collaborated on designing a modern rustic wedding inspiration shoot with Enchanted Dream Weddings and Isari Flower Studio and the results were delicious, literally! When Naomi of Enchanted Dream Weddings told me about wanting to bring cheese into the concept I immediately thought of Venissimo Cheese, one of my favorite cheese shops located in Del Mar. My passion for cheese runs deep and long and I couldn’t wait to see what kind of aromatic delights Venissimo could bring to the table, literally! From super aged goat cheese goudas to soft goats milk medallions, the smells of tart cheese mingled with honey and flowers in the air for truly an aromatic delight.
With a combination of rustic woods, simple white china and some raw silverware we layered elements of modern rustic charm together along with textures and smells to tempt the senses. Tam of Isari concocted crisp clean white and black anemones along with plush delphiniums and fresh herbs that were featured in over-sized terracotta pots.
To bring even more of a rustic modern edge and tie in the blacks of the anemones I hand dip dyed flax colored napkins in black die to be featured under fresh goat cheese medallions topped with honeycomb and fresh pomegranate seeds.
Modern fonts and bistro style typography was used to create these modern rustic wedding invitations that featured inky black envelope liners, thick textured cotton paper and a dip-dyed edge. To emphasize the culinary bistro aspect I created a dip-dyed belly band out of cheese cloth itself.
For a unique presentation of a place setting I created place cards that fit inside mini-glass domes featured at each plate.
Guest’s seating cards featured square cut outs and were hung on branches of herbs in mini terracotta pots. The bridal bouquet was designed with fragrant white lilacs, nerine lilies intermingled with scabiosa pods, and fun viburnum clusters. The stems were tied with jute twine, to complement the groom’s elegant scabiosa pod boutonniere.
