Elegant Rustic Outdoor Wedding
Hi everyone!! Today, on The Bride Link we are introducing this rustic yet elegant outdoor wedding that is breathtaking. Brianna and Dawson had such a spectacular wedding that was held at Fives Pavilion at Riesen Ranch in Senoia, Ga. This beautiful southern charm farm venue is such a hidden gem. It accommodates up to 200 of your loved ones for your big day. The Ceremony Pasture is an ideal setting to hold an outdoor ceremony, with the open-air pavilion just steps away from the reception.

These middle school sweethearts...Yes, I said that right, middle school sweethearts met when they were in sixth grade and instantly knew they were meant to be! The couple's vision for their wedding was for it to be simple but elegant at the same time embodying both Brianna and Dawson’s style. They chose this location as their venue due to how stunning the property was overall and loved that it was outdoors. It was a beautiful outdoor wedding that took place in an open pasture with the most beautiful view, and it was everything they had always dreamed it would be. The ceremony had a rustic feel with their wedding barn doors, arbor, whiskey barrels, and wooden logs placed down the aisle that was all decorated with our beautiful flowers!
The reception followed to a ranch-styled open pavilion which had round tables for guest seating and beautiful farmhouse long tables that went down the middle of the reception that they used as a focal point of the wedding through decorating. The style of the wedding was rustic with a splash of elegance by using flowers, vases, lanterns, and candles as focal points to decorate the reception. One of their favorite parts of the wedding was getting to decorate the ceremony and reception because they had so many details in mind that they wanted to bring to life to create the vision that they were looking for! The color scheme of the wedding was ivory, with different shades of greenery, and a splash of the color mauve.
Brianna wore a stunning Mori Lee Lace wedding dress that we are all living for! The dress was filled with details and had a long train to go along with it which looks stunning in pictures! Dawson wore a grey jacket and vest from Men’s Warehouse with a mauve tie to match the mauve color in their wedding and jeans. The bridesmaids wore the same color mauve dresses from Azazie which were beautiful and the groomsmen wore grey vests with mauve ties and jeans. Always having a color scheme for your wedding ties the whole day together!
Brianna’s wedding flowers were simple but beautiful. The bouquet was filled with white flowers, baby’s breath, and all sorts of different greenery to give a simple elegant look! She got her flowers through Kroger’s florist and they did such an amazing job putting together all of the flowers for not only the bridal party but on the whiskey barrels arrangements, wedding arbor, and different other aspects for their wedding!
The couple's wedding cake was a beautiful and delicious two-tier white cake with buttercream frosting from Publix bakery. They added greenery and their wedding flowers to it which was the perfect touch! Their wedding favors were the absolute cutest and a perfect way to incorporate their fur babies! Since they have two dogs, a chocolate lab, and a lab mix they had a table set up with a picture of their dogs and a sign that sat on the table that read “we love our dogs so take a treat for your dogs to go!” They did cute dog treat bags filled with different treats for people to grab on their way out for their fur babies at home!
Most of their wedding details they did themselves, like the wedding doors and arbor, the wood signs, favors, which is such a special thing to do that personalizes their wedding even more and also saved money for them in the end! The most important thing to Dawson and Brianna was while planning their wedding was to incorporate both of their styles and what was most important to them into our wedding. Another important thing that they planned was to incorporate into their ceremony was their faith by doing the tying of the three strands to remind them to keep God in the center of their marriage always.
