Luxurious Wedding International Bridal Luxury

A Rustic Theme Wedding Exclusively Created by Luxurious Wedding | Dress The Event Productions


The Inspiration


The inspiration began with our Luxurious Wedding | Dress The Drink custom Birch Cocktail. For the Birch Cocktail we used gourmet chocolate syrup to outline a twig design inside the glass. Our crushed edible cocoa flowers garnished the rim which was topped off with our edible Viola flower on a Belgian chocolate stick. Then our Mixologist created a Birch Martini and Birch Milk beverage so that everyone could enjoy the true spirit of our Birch Cocktail.


The Concept


True rustic decor comes in various time periods so we combined 4 core elements into the decor vision - colonial, natural, country manor, peppered with an overall feeling of romantic Victorian. The mixture produces a Rustic Theme Wedding canvas where art and luxury mesh brilliantly.


The Ambiance

Perfect for any size wedding, A Rustic Theme Wedding is timeless. We used a rich color palette mixed with birch wood, vines, barks, leaves, edible flowers and a Signature Birch Cocktail trimmed with crushed edible flower crystals. Our Mixologist created the perfect blend of alcoholic and non-alcoholic flavors for the Birch Signature Cocktail. The rim of the glass was then topped off with a Belgian Chocolate Sweetglazed coated edible flower on the tip of a Belgian Chocolate stick. Sinfully Decandant! The Signature Birch Cocktail was created and designed to highlight all the Rustic Theme hues in our Color Palette and to harmonize with the table decor.


The Color Palette

Hydrangea - a soft blue. Viola - a deep purple. Harvest Gold - a bright glow. Granny Apple - a medium green. Burnt Sienna - a rich brown. Hazelnut - a light taupe. Birch - white with a silver cast. Antique Copper.

The Accentuations
Oh so pretty. Glazed Edible Flowers were everywhere. Attached to the centerpiece. As accents on the wedding cake. As napkin trim for each placesetting. Enticing and edible. Oh so pretty and perfect!

The best part of creating the ambiance for the Rustic Theme Wedding was being able to utilize our luxury gourmet garnishments for the color palette and design. These fantastic edible crushed flower garnishes are made to be used on the cocktails and desserts and to complete the look of the table setting. We used Edible Flowers, Diamond Gold Gems, and our 24K Chocolate Leaves to create an exciting and unique feeling.

The China and Charger

Our Rustic Theme Dinnerware was selected from the extraordinary collection at Classic Party Rental. Each place setting was a key element as the background for the plate decor. Artistic and graceful natural materials were combined to achieve the overall design image of the table decor. We selected fine white china with a gold rim to sit upon an amber crackle charger. Each place setting was flanked by gold plated silverware and amber crackled glassware. The selected pairing of dinnerware truly made the tabletop design pop.

 

The Rustic Wedding Cake
Designed by Tasteful Cakes, the Rustic Wedding Cake design was the most delicious wedding cake we have ever tasted. The frosting picked up the lines that run through natural Birch with layers that were semi-circled in huge chocolate resembling bark. Our Belgian Chocolate Dress The Drink Edible Flowers were blooming all over the cake.
A beautiful three tier rustic wedding cake used a variety of decorating techniques. Each tier of the wedding cake was comprised of different cake flavors and fillings. The bottom tier has both white and chocolate cake in alternating layers matched with their signature dulce de leche mousse, which is a creamy caramel favorite. The middle tier is a light white cake with refreshing fresh strawberries set in our strawberry mousse. The top tier is a luxurious chocolate cake paired with a decadent, silky chocolate mousse. A companion groom’s cake was made of rich red velvet cake with a smooth cream cheese filling.
The decorations were inspired by a lively and joyful meadow with delicate flowers and vibrant foliage. All three tiers are iced using a marbleized buttercream in subdued, natural tones. The simulated bark was created using modeling chocolate and a true-to-life bark texture, which was placed “randomly” to enhance the natural feel of the cake. Edible pansies and snap dragons pop up in bright yellows, beautiful purples, and gentle pinks. To balance the edible flowers, we created edible textured moss, birch leaves and tendrils of ferns. The final touch to the Rustic Cake was a simulated branch of a birch tree made from edible sugar dough. The groom’s cake was created to replicate a genuine tree stump, from the rings of the heart of the tree to the imitation bark enveloping it.

 

The Pairing of Wine
Montes Purple Angel exudes distinctive flavors of intense blueberry, blackberry and chocolate. Montes Purple Angel is layered, structured, and balanced. Intense purple in color, this wine has distinctive and delicate hints of chocolate and cigar box aromas. The Carmen grapes from the Apalta estate provide elegance, spiciness, and dark fruit flavors. The Petit Verdot, also from Apalta, adds structure along with the wildness of black berries. Finally, the Carmenere grapes from Marchigue a cooler area adds spicy and lively notes. This wine is full bodied, with a considerable amount of ripe tannins that bestow grip and structure to this lovely wine. Robert Parker 93+ PointsWine News 93 PointsWine Spectator 91 Points
