It’s all in the details for this elegant rustic wedding! With hints of plum and cranberry, these two love birds managed to turn an into an elegant, nature inspired venue for their special day, and you’ll be amazed by how it turned out.

For their wedding, Sarah and John planned a romantic, rustic affair at Cox Arboretum in Dayton Ohio. This beautiful 189-acre facility is a special place for visitors to escape among trees, shrubs, specialty gardens, mature forests, and prairies.  And makes for great photographs!

The day started with a traditional ceremony held inside the lodge at the venue, in which Sarah and John exchanged heartfelt vows surrounded by their families and friends. After saying “I do,” the pair whisked guests off to the Hilton Garden Inn for an unforgettable celebration.

At the reception venue the couple created a romantic oasis by decorating the reception tables with arrangements of white hydrangeas, baby’s breath and warm candlelight and rustic wooden accents and mason jars and vintage style lanterns. The venue was accented with dramatic up lighting that infused the ballroom at the Hilton with a party-ready vibe, gave the evening a fun, festive feel. And the glow sticks and light up sunglasses definitely helped to get the party started!

After a night of dancing that included an epic confetti first dance moment, the guests took home S’more party favors that were absolutely delicious! This yummy treat complemented their popcorn and cupcake/cookie dessert table which left no guest leaving with an empty stomach.
