Your Rustic Wedding at Tall Pines Inn awaits.

What is a Rustic Wedding

Anything rustic is slightly rough around the edges, “so to speak”, a wedding included. This type of wedding means you don’t have to drag out the crystal and fine china, and many Brides these busy days find this a relief, check this out for lots of ideas! Brides may take the rustic wedding theme and incorporate vintage decor’ in their theme. Perfect settings for a Rustic Wedding are barns and farm backdrops or forests with lush foliage as the background.

Are Rustic Weddings in Style

A Rustic Wedding at Tall Pines Inn is always in style. As the price of weddings is steadily increasing, the taste of couples is becoming increasingly more simple, and couples are trending towards marrying at later ages and Rustic Weddings are becoming more popular. They are a simple organic feel to the more extravagant version of the traditional wedding. A Rustic Wedding also lends well to Elopements which are also on the rise, with couples looking to save money and non-first marriages. It is said that a Rustic Wedding is a mindset more than a style, with that in mind read on!

Are Our Rustic Weddings Vintage or Shabby Chic

Rustic weddings indicate the place where they are held and the environmental feel, such as woodsy, outdoors, and green forest setting. It may also be a farm setting in or near a barn, typically outdoors. You might incorporate vintage or shabby chic items into your rustic wedding to bring in a mix of decor. However, Vintage is technically considered a time, and Shabby Chic is a style. As you can see, these are very different classifications.

What Colors Do We Use for Our Rustic Weddings

Rustic Weddings at Tall Pines Inn plays on colors found in nature or colors requested by the Bride. We perform our weddings under a beautiful handmade rustic arch made from wood used at one time for fencing around the property. We have repurposed these aged poles into a wedding arch, then we add lights and drapes in green, cream or blush hung over the arch, and flowers are added in coordinating colors to transform the arch into a beautiful wedding site.
