Bohemian Sunrise Wedding Featuring Suspended Cakes, Pillow Seating & Rickshaws

The crew at Wedding 101 have recently been dropping gorgeous little gems into my inbox and I am confident that you are about to become as smitten as I am with the gorgeous affairs that they have  been crafting!  Today’s wonderfully dreamy session is like that yummy vivid dream that you were having just as your alarm went off!  Wanting to turn the conventional notion of when a wedding takes place on its head, rather then celebrating with the setting sun, we take on the morning rays of light instead!  Wrapped in a beautifully earthy bohemian vibe, this sunrise wedding features, among many cool things, my new favorite wedding trend {already!} of 2014, the suspended cake!  Deliciously crafted by their host venue, The Bleckley Inn, created an incredibly scrumptious layered crepe cake which is suspended by fabric perfectly at waist height for ogling by the guests as well as cutting of course!  The ceremony & reception are just as unique as the cake presentation, filled with Moroccan style carpets, pillow seating, tons of candles & gorgeous earthy elements like garlands of green, pheasant feathers & strong farmhouse wood tables.  The neutral color palette infused with touches of green & pops of purple lay the ground work for this bohemian delight while being accented by just the right metallic touches.  There are so many other terrific surprises & delights you’re going to love exploring, everything from the boho chic decor to our lovely bride who blends glam style, cultural touches & boho flair to perfection!  Now if you’ll excuse me, I am going back to dream about this sunrise wedding some more!


A Note From The Designers: “Avid travelers, Piper and Ryan have spent the majority of their relationship exploring other countries, but when Ryan popped the question on a trip to Denmark, Piper knew she wanted to have their wedding close to home in Anderson, South Carolina. Staying true to their personalities, Piper and Ryan designed a free-spirited, bohemian breakfast wedding so their guests could celebrate with them at sunrise, the beginning of the day and of their lives together. While Piper combined neutral and natural shades with pops of gold (including gold-leaf applied to her eye makeup and dainty gold chains in her hair), she also brought in subtle accents from some of her favorite travel destinations, including the henna on one of her hands. The ceremony took place in a cozy, intimate alley at The Bleckley Inn. Guests moved to the courtyard to sit and relax at low tables while they ate delicious breakfast items and sipped on mimosas. Because the wedding took place at sunrise, Piper and Ryan opted to forego the traditional wedding cake, and instead had The Bleckley Inn create their Signature Crepe Cake for just the right amount of sweetness. Following breakfast, guests moved to the Carriage House to watch the newlyweds cut their crepe cake (adorned with a laser-cut gold cake topper) that rested on a suspended table. Guests could then continue to relax by dancing and having fun in the open-air photo booth with a gorgeous gold backdrop. Finally, nearing mid-day, guests waved goodbye as Piper and Ryan exited on a rickshaw to continue their life of adventure together.”
