Rustic weddings are continuing to thrive here in Southern California. However, they have become much more sophisticated. Instead of mason jars and DIY projects, elegance has emerged. Leslie Kaplan of Encore Event Design has taken RUSTIC to a whole new level in a recent photo shoot at Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu. Leslie incorporated mix matched vintage furniture with timeless elements such as chandeliers, candlesticks, formal china and flatware, and of course, our runners and napkins.

Leslie is not only a wedding planner, but a designer. She likes to think outside of the box. We love how she chose several style of vintage chairs for ceremony seating. What a cozy setting.Image
The intimate table is set with beautiful details such as, die cut menu cards, candlesticks, delicate vases filled with blossoms, and the most abundant floral arrangements in Grecian urns. The glassware and flatware even scream elegance.
