Countryside Wedding Inspiration With Birch & Brass

I first met Brittany Pigorini of Birch & Brass Vintage Rentals back in March, she and I had both found each other in the Texas Hill Country for a creative retreat and I knew from the start she was a Free People girl.

I later learned she also happened to be the creative visionary behind the inspiring decor used on-site. From vintage peacock chairs to colored glass votives, vintage kilim rugs to overstuffed pillows, it was the kind of furniture that I strive to fill my own home with, so I was immediately intrigued to hear her story. It seems only natural that Birch & Brass is a direct result of Brittany’s own wedding. A lover of vintage and antiques since childhood, she and her now-husband, Federico, curated a massive collection of table runners, antique china, and glass vessels — along with the family heirlooms she already owned — to use for the ceremony and reception. It was in these tiny details that Brittany recognized her life’s calling and eventually Birch & Brass was born. Upon returning to Philadelphia and as the launch of FP Ever After, Free People’s first-ever bridal collection, drew closer, I knew that Brittany would be the perfect person to turn to for some countryside wedding inspiration, and she did not let us down.

Countryside weddings are becoming increasingly popular and it’s easy to see why: A sunlit field, a rustic barn, maybe even a chicken or two… the entire scene is one that exudes romance and simplicity, an escape for the couple and their guests, a day to focus on love and beauty without distraction. For a simple farm-set ceremony, choose bold pops of color to contrast with rustic and antique furniture, silver flatware plays against the wildness of farm-fresh flowers, and a spread of artisnal cheeses, olives, and other delicacies hint at an elevated picnic-inspired meal. Allow Brittany’s gorgeous photos — all shot on film, mind you — inspire you, below:

This is all so beautiful!

I was never a huge fan of the idea of country life. However, I do love this style–so quaint and bright! I think it’s perfect for the summer!
