As couples embrace less formal ways to tie the knot, boho promises to be a big look for 2021. Earthy and enchanting, a bohemian or “boho” wedding can be styled to reflect your personality and preferences. At the same time, the relaxed aesthetic and natural vibe lend themselves to outdoor settings and less formal attire, both of which are proving to be go-to choices for nuptials now.
Let this “luxe boho” styled shoot inspire you. It took place September 1 at The Armstrong Estate, a new small venue offering an all-inclusive, customizable, luxury elopement experience. Located on 26 acres in Spencerville, and loaded with old-world charm, this spot includes secret paths, a wildflower meadow, and a beautifully restored stone house built in the 1850s.
Gabrielle, the owner, styled the shoot with “a refined boho vibe.” She says it’s “for the festival-loving brides, the wild-at-hearts, the nature-loving couples who want to elope in an earthy and secluded site at the end of a secret trail, without sacrificing on luxury elements.”
To achieve the look, “We built a boho triangular tent that resembles a giant fire pit,” Gabrielle explains. Ash trees from the property were used. The lush, romantic structure was decorated, she adds, “with soft fabric, macramé and flowers, along with lots of lanterns and candles, a vintage rug, and an old-school bicycle. Rich earthy tones were used throughout.”
