Rachel & Trevor | Touch of Boho, Neutral Fall Wedding at Carmon’s in Champaign, IL

November 2023

Fall weddings are some of our absolute favorites to design and Rachel and Trevor’s neutral boho wedding was one we frequently reminisce about. We designed Rachel’s lush bouquet with earth toned blooms featuring quicksand and toffee roses, anemone, strawflower, and amaranth with accents of bunny tail and dried grasses with eucalyptus and ruscus greenery all tied with a trailing blush silk ribbon. Bridesmaids held smaller bouquets with added stock and carnations that popped over their elegant black dresses. Trevor and his groomsmen pinned on complementing traditional style blush sahara spray rose boutonnieres with accents of strawflower, eucalyptus, and bunny tail on classic black tuxedos.

Rachel and Trevor exchanged their vows inside Carmon’s event venue in Champaign, Illinois. At the altar stood a large wooden square arbor that we adorned with two large symmetrical corner floral sprays filled with playa blanca, quicksand, and toffee roses, blush carnations, hot biscuits amaranthus, and strawflower with textural pampas grass plumes, ruscus, and eucalyptus greenery paired with a white swag draped over the arch. Post ceremony, the arbor served as a beautiful photo backdrop for guests to enjoy the entire evening in the reception space.

The large reception space was filled with farmhouse tables on end, each with a variety of glass bud vase arrangements filled with the same muted fall blooms and natural elements paired with pillar candles and votive candles in gold and clear holders to make a long table runner that glowed with candlelight. We made sure to even add fresh coordinating flowers to the couple’s simple cutting cake as well as bud vase arrangements on cocktail tables and bar tops to make one cohesive design throughout the entire space.

Carmon’s event space was the perfect fall wedding backdrop for Rachel and Trevors touch of boho, neutral wedding look and we can’t wait to come back and see what other visions we can bring to life. Thanks for choosing J.Blu to create for your special day. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
