With fall weddings right around the corner, what perfect way to say “I Do” with a sheek rustic-inspired outdoor wedding. We love the idea of using wood & log pieces as a theme throughout a wedding. They not only infuse a rustic element, but they assist in tying together the outdoor wedding theme. Check out these rustic log bowl centerpieces…Kudos to Emmaline Bride.  They come in all shapes, sizes and colors and are the perfect addition for your table.  You can find them on Pinterest.
