If you're looking for inspiration for your fall wedding and thinking about a natural bohemian theme, then look no further! Thanks to a fabulous team of wedding vendors led by Kimberley Bentley, lead planner with Silver Thistle Weddings + Events, we have some gorgeous images to share with you from our wedding styled shoot held here at The Cedars Ranch last November. Amy Gawlik, with Al Gawlik Photography captured the vibe of our organic and modern boho themed shoot beautifully.
Scroll down for our top 10 ideas for the perfect boho fall wedding, inspired by our stunning wedding styled shoot ...
1. Choose An Outdoor Wedding Venue
Let nature do the decorating for your wedding! For that effortless organic feel, pick a venue that has plenty of access to the outdoors and one that has prioritized native landscaping over manicured lawns and gardens. Our natural environment of majestic live oaks and native grasses here at The Cedars Ranch is beautifully complimented by foraged fall leaves and flowers from Kismet Flowers.
2. Marry Your Soulmate!
Needless to say (but we're saying it anyway!), the top tip for the perfect boho style wedding or any wedding whatsoever, is to marry your best friend and soulmate! Let's introduce you to our adorable wedding styled shoot models, Caitlin and Max. Caitlin and Max are recent newlyweds and very graciously agreed to participate in our wedding styled shoot. As you can see, their love for each other is both gorgeous and palpable, and made this styled shoot an absolute dream!
3. Integrate Natural Fall Colors
Incorporate the natural colors of the season into your wedding style, to further that simple organic vibe. We love how this wedding bouquet from Kismet Flowers matches the hues and tones of the Texas Hill Country fall landscape so effortlessly. And check out the bride's flawless warm toned makeup by Celissa Rae, perfectly themed with the season.
4. Rock Your Own Wedding Style!
One of the keys to a natural boho wedding is to showcase your own personal style. Wear what you want to wear and how you want to wear it! Not that much into wedding veils, but you love fedora hats? Then go with it! And speaking of style, check out this gorgeous boho chic dress from Unbridaled.
5. Pick A Venue As Unique As You!
Speaking about rocking your own style, choose a wedding venue that reflects your own unique selves. In the kind words of our wedding styled shoot planner and dear friend of The Cedars Ranch, Kimberley Bentley ...
"This unique venue is unlike any other in our area due to its sustainable core values. Watching The Cedars Ranch evolve has been invigorating due to the uniqueness of its architecture and wellness concept. Bill and Marilyn's vision of modernism that is organic and natural is such a refreshing vibe and one that our company thrives on. At STWE, we encourage our couples to find a venue that really suits their lifestyle and portrays their personality. We feel that The Cedars Ranch does just that and we are so excited to begin planning and coordinating events in this space!" - Kimberley Bentley, Silver Thistle Weddings + Events
6. Use Vintage Elements
There's nothing quite like vintage decor to add that touch of originality and character to your wedding. We're swooning over this head table set up from Bee Lavish Vintage! We love how the vintage style work so seamlessly against our modern-designed great hall, and those foraged fall branches from Kismet Flowers adds an additional whimsical vibe. Being an eco-friendly and sustainable wedding venue, we encourage the use of vintage decor as it reduces your wedding waste footprint and looks great too! The perfect marriage of green and gorgeous!

7. Aim For A Simple Design
Sometimes less is more, especially if you're going for that effortless natural boho vibe. Use natural elements to bring the outdoors inside, and let all that natural light and beautiful modern organic space shine!
8. Add Macrame!!
What would a bohemian style wedding be without macrame?! Always a pinterest worthy addition, this macrame cake hanger adds the perfect boho fun vibe to your wedding cake and dessert corner!
9. Create A Lounge Space
Think about alternative ways to use the venue space to match your relaxed and natural wedding style. One great way of doing this is by creating a lounge area for you and your guests to chill, relax and mingle. Bee Lavish Vintage designed this chic and cozy space in the center of our great hall for that very purpose!
"We love to think outside of the box! A lounge space at your event with foraged floral is a unique and memorable way to set your event a part and give your guests a great experience." - Kimberley Bentley, Silver Thistle Weddings + Events
10. Include an Inventive Bar Setup
Adding to the idea of alternative hang out areas for you and your guests, think about how you could incorporate a cool wedding bar setup as part of your reception. Including novel spaces and inventive setups creates an extra dimension to your wedding, and helps make your special day as unique and fun as you are!
Our high character event bar adjacent to our great hall is the perfect location for a wedding cocktail hour or creative bar setup, and really pops with all these fall florals and happy newlyweds!
And last but not least, we have a bonus wedding tip for you!!
