Amanda + Lien’s Refined Rustic Wedding

Refined Rustic Wedding

I am excited to share with you today Amanda + Lien’s refined rustic wedding! Their venue was at the super cute Sweet Haven Barn, a replica of an authentic 19th century barn. It has a very natural feel to it stained wood exterior and interior, surrounding wheat fields and is just a short drive away from some picturesque locations like Dry Island Buffalo Jump. The clean lines coupled with decorative chandeliers makes for the perfect balance between rustic and refined.

I love, love, love the colour combination they went with – with a mixture of pinks, sangria and terracotta. The rich combo is such a modern, feminine and romantic look. As a side note – this combo was one of the inspiration colour schemes for our previous blog post on “peach fuzz” being the colour of the year, you can read more about it here. To compliment the colour scheme, we kept the flowers a mixture of white and blush with accents of mocha and sage toned greenery.

Amanda, of course, looked sensational. Her wedding dress was stunning with the ornate floral lace, open back and her chapel length veil. I feel like she really nailed the timeless, understated elegance look. Her bouquet was a natural inspired hand tied bouquet of pink astilbe, mocha lisianthus (swoon!), creme brûlée phlox, cappuccino roses, quicksand roses (one of my favourite varieties), playa blanca roses and white sweet peas accented with bleached ruscus, gunni eucalyptus and olive branches for greenery. The stems were finished off with a simple satin wrap, and special attention to the touching little pin on photo charm. I love this detail.

Before we move on to the bridal party, I do have to give love to their adorable furry friend. I have a special place in my heart for golden retrievers. So sweet to be able to include lovable fur babies, that occupy such a big place in our hearts, on such an important occasion. Adorned in a floral collar, everyone would have known the VIP status of this guest.

While pup is a tough act to follow, their bridal party understood the assignment. As I have already mentioned, I love the colours of their dresses. They each must have been able to pick out their own gown as they all look perfectly suited to their dresses and colours. The accents of blush and mocha in their bouquets coordinated beautifully. They bouquets matched the bride’s bouquet, just slightly smaller in size.

Lien and his groomsmen all looked very dapper as well. Each of the men sported a “mini bouquet” styled boutonniere. Lien’s was a cluster of spray roses, mocha lisianthks, blush astilbe, gunni eucalyptus and bleached ruscus. The rest of the boutonnieres, while were slightly smaller, were all made to match.


The ceremony site was absolutely lovely. It kept with the natural feel, with the simple, dark wood benches for the guests, and the backdrop of trees and field. Not much was needed to enhance the beauty already there.

We had a pretty floral accent in blush and white on top of the sign to welcoming all the guests as they arrived. Marking the beginning of the aisle, we designed two large floral arrangements full of roses and lush greens. Ivory and blush rose petals lined the sides of the aisle leading up to the big, lush, archway!

Made to match the rest of the flowers in the wedding the archway was full of stunning roses (Playa Blanca, Quicksand, Cappucino as well as Snowflake spray roses), mocha lisianthus, creme brûlée phlox, camilia and lush Italian Ruscus, bleached ruscus, and silver dollar eucalyptus. These archways always make such a statement and create such a big impact. I can’t think of anything that adds the same level of romance to a wedding as big floral instalments like this. Heart eyes.


The reception for Amanda and Lien was just enchanting. Full of countryside charm inside the barn, and modern, romantic details. The guest’s tables looked lovely with ivory linens and blush napkins. For centerpieces there was a mixture of bud vases, each with a bigger bloom, smaller accent flower and a tuck of greenery. Amongst the bud vases there was also an assortment of candles creating a beautiful ambience.

The head table was decorated in a similar fashion. Billowy, delicate rose toned fabric draped along the front of the table. A mixture of bud vases and candles as well as a garland of fresh eucalyptus weaving between the arrangements. As well as the centrepieces, there were also two large arrangements full of roses, spray roses, lisianthus, astilbe and greens, on the floor, framing where Amanda and Lien sat.

They repurposed the extraordinary arch from their ceremony to be the backdrop for their photo booth. Paired with the adorable “better together” neon sign, it made the perfect set up for a photo op!

A few other floral accents were tucked throughout the reception. On the seating chart, the table for photo booth with the cameras, as well as on an stand with a fun little crossword puzzle all about the bride and groom. They were the perfect little finishing touches for the reception decor!

I hope you enjoyed checking out Amanda and Lien’s refined rustic wedding, and that you have been inspired by the pretty, romantic details!
