rustic and refined driftwood wedding inspiration

Driftwood has to be one of my favorite design elements used in weddings. The way the water shapes and smooths driftwood reminds me of sculpture and I’ve never seen driftwood used so well, and in so many unique ways as in today’s driftwood wedding inspiration shoot from Kristyn Hogan Photography, all of which was designed and styled by Tennessee’s Cedarwood Weddings!

Driftwood adds a rustic-to-refined vibe to any décor that it’s utilized in. Combined with antlers, exotic flowers, candlelight and sequins – the entire look of the reception setup in this inspiration shoot is utterly jaw dropping and reminiscent of a naturalist’s dream. Bistro chairs and hand-letting add a sense of warmth to the ambiance and those rowboat shots!? It’ doesn’t get any more romantic than that.
