Your theme should reflect your personality, and every couple has those little favorite moments or inside jokes that make their story wholly unique. Maybe you met abroad or have a favorite European spot that you’ve both dreamed of visiting together. Incorporate elements of that special place into your big day. Or was there a hobby that brought you together? Perhaps you bonded over a love of great food and fine wine: there’s a wedding theme there, you’ve just got to get creative with it. At Bohemia Overlook you could take advantage of the property’s Blue Elk Vineyard, for first-look photos, or draw inspiration from the vineyard in your decorations and table arrangements for the ceremony and reception. Even serve their wine at the reception giving that destination feel.
Sometimes it’s easier to start with the colors you know you want to incorporate into your special day, and then let those help inform a logical theme that would work with them. If soft seaside teals and blues are calling to you, it might just so happen that a nautical or “beachy” themed wedding is your ideal. Navy is also an excellent choice for the seaside wedding, and it works with a lot of other colors (try navy and red or navy and white to really drum up that “Eastern seaboard Regatta” vibe, or navy and lime for a funky springtime take on the seaside affair). Holding your wedding at The Barn at Bohemia Overlook would allow a rustic chic or rustic elegance to steal the show. Imagine using the tasting room, actually stables, for your cocktail hour and serving the vineyard’s wine, the total experience. Or if you’re a fan of bolder, contrasting hues, hold a striking, elegant evening wedding at The Manor for a more classically-themed wedding (picture black tuxes, white roses, and gold jewelry, shoes, and decor pieces).
