Royale Rustic :: Heidi+Jason

Oh my goodness, how we adore our bride Heidi’s Maggie Sottero “Rhianna Royale wedding dress in the delicate color called light gold.  No one can illuminate a gorgeous bride and her gown quite like Ace Photography. Seriously, there are so many stunning photos of this bride and her groom Jason at their September 23 Cedarwood wedding, it took three selection sessions just to narrow down our favorites for this post.   Autumn is a glorious time for an outdoor wedding, with warm weather and a touch of fall peeking through the end of summer.  Heidi and Jason balanced their romantic pastel-hued wedding with rustic moss, wood and burlap as well as autumn-colored accents including Jason’s southern-chic paisley print bow tie!

Vintage jewelry, bouquet rosary, family heritage photo table, heirloom quilts and embroidered monogrammed jars of home made apple butter for guests to take home made the wedding personal and unique.  A friend of Heidi and Jason gave them original art featuring Cedarwood’s historic house, barn and truck (we love it!) for wedding guests to autograph instead of a traditional guest book — a perfect, steal-worthy idea!  Just as original are the custom art-calligraphy chalkboard signs Cedarwood created for Heidi and Jason’s ceremony ‘program,’ seating chart and bar menus.  Kudos to Karen, our resident artist, who keeps raising the bar on Cedarwood‘s custom signs!

Other favorite details from this wedding include Heidi and Jason’s vintage cigar box ring bearer ‘pillow’ – almost as adorable as the little guy himself – and their trio of wedding cheesecakes!   There’s so much to enjoy about this beautiful southern soiree! What’s your favorite detail?

There were a few moist eyes after Heidi and Jason’s reception slide show, but we assure you that guests left with warm happy hearts.  Congratulations Heidi and Jason! We loved all the wedding day details that were uniquely yours.  Thanks Ace Photograpy for sharing these fantastic images with us!

  1. This is a day that we will never forget. What a beautiful day and setting. Linda, your staff was amazing. Cedarwood made our childrens wedding day fabulous. Love all of the pictures!

    • Pleeeaaase somebody find out for me the details about that dress. Who is the designer and what is the name of the style.

      Thanks In Advance

      • Hello, check out the “Angelina” dress in the Cedarwood Style Shop.

      • Hi Erline,

        This is about a year late, but the designer is Maggie Sottero and the style is Rhianna Royale in champaign. I had many alterations done to the dress (sweetheart neckline, took out corset and added zipper w/buttons, and had them take in the dress around my hips to make it more form fitted). Hope you have already figured it out and if not I hope you found the dress of your dreams :)

  2. I couldn’t choose just one detail I love the most because EVERYTHING is so beautiful! Once again, amazing images by Ace Photography ;)

  3. What an absolutely beautiful wedding. The brides dress is exquisite!!! So many great ideas for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this.
