an outdoor dream
A handful of wedding professionals from the Cleveland and surrounding areas transformed a private farm into a free-spirited, lush autumn wedding collaboration named Boho Wonderland. Every one of us brought unique talents, elements, and perspectives to the creative collab.
Boho Wonderland began with a large outdoor teepee that could be used as a ceremony altar, lounge area, and photo backdrop. Jodi, owner and stationer extraordinaire at Pink Tomato Creative, asked her husband if he would help her build a teepee and from there one of the most beautiful, creative inspiration shoots was born!
Jodi set the tone with an invitation suite that reinterprets vintage motifs from the Jazz Age in rich reddish-pink ink on a neutral light rose paper. There’s an elegant liveliness in the design that can be seen in other details from the day including the detail work on the wedding dresses we brought!
Private yurts were placed around the farm and in the evening became warm glowing rooms ready for sleepy guests. A restored silver airstream camper bar served custom fall cocktails and was hung with garlands of silvery eucalyptus. Lounge areas with vintage velvet couches and florals brought the indoors out in the most luxurious way.
Floral installations of dried and fresh florals punctuated the edges of weathered fence lines and guests gathered at a long family table spread with a feast of fine cheeses, cured meats, stone fruits and finished with a spiced naked tiered cake.
Later in the evening, everyone gathered for dinner on the ground at a table set with taper candles, gold tableware, floral centerpieces, and deep ruby linens. Guests sat on lush velvet pillows and cheered the happy couple as the sun set.
the dresses: vintage meets boho
All the dresses we brought to Boho Wonderland shared a lightness of either fabric, cut, or handiwork. They are gowns that nod to vintage elements with lace overlays, hand-beaded detail and embroidery that bring the bespoke to each gown.
the Bibi & Iset dresses
The Bibi and Iset gowns from Chicago based independent designer Edith Èlan bring the vintage vibe to a boho setting and it completely worked! Bibi features a deep v-neck paired with sheer lace sleeves. The back mirrors the front and closes with an antiqued gold finish pendant. Darker lace against the lighter crepe creates a subtle, two-tone effect.
Iset falls beautifully along the body. The charmeuse fabric creates incredible movement and the illusion back with custom crystal and pearl beadwork makes it an inspired, unique gown.
The v-neck top flows down into a column skirt that pools at the bottom and ends in a short pointed train.
the Beatrice dress
The Beatrice dress from Australian based designer Karen Willis Holmes is for the true romantic. She is for the bride who wants a traditional silhouette with a fitted bodice and fullness in the skirt. It features light hand-beading and embroidery that disperses faintly into a gradient effect on the tulle skirt. Beatrice is perfect for the bride who wants some sparkle without a fully sequined look, and who wants a flattering shape that isn’t figure-hugging. It is finished with a fine beaded belt and can be styled with a train for extra drama and two looks!
the Kirsten & Tabitha dresses
Lace takes center stage in both the Kirsten and Tabitha dresses. In Kirsten, as a geometric lace top that flows into a tulle gown, and Tabitha is all lace, from the fluttery off the shoulder sleeves to the streamlined skirt.
The Tabitha dress is part of Karen Willis Holmes’ Curve Collection. It’s the ultimate boho-lace wedding gown. The delicate lace flutter sleeves create softness and spotlight the décolleté.
The Kirsten gown from Rembo Styling, an independent atelier based in Belgium and Portugal, features a lace v neck bodice with optional sheer, illusion inset, and geometric lace waist flowing into a gathered layer of paper-thin tulle.
