Wedding photographer Tyler Rye recently shared a lovely desert wedding inspiration shoot on his blog that was also published in Southern Utah Bride Magazine. The groom made a striking impression in a jacket by ModLines. The Cordifornia design beautifully complemented the desert backdrop and made for a particularly memorable element of this shoot.
The Monkey Suit Vintage original demonstrates yet again the versatility of an individualistic and high quality suit. The deep coffee color fits in perfectly with a desert’s natural palette. And the corduroy material can’t help but seem like an excellent choice of fabric- its smooth yet rustic feel juxtaposed with a desert’s often rough terrain and features, and at the same time matching the down-to-earth luxury of the day.
The jacket’s slim fit cut with a modern length makes for a complexity that’s timeless. The look is classic, with several gentlemanly touches, such as the buttons on the cuffs. As you’ve come to expect from ModLines, however, it’s not at all stuffy, and is easily adaptable to one’s own sense of style.
Take a look at this inspiration shoot, and it’s clear that the groom’s wedding attire is consistent with all the other expressive elements of the day. The Cordifornia suit, as well as the wide selection of others we have available, would outfit the groom and/or groomsmen superbly for a variety of wedding themes.

As more and more people decide on less traditional settings for their weddings, an outdoor wedding in the woods has grown in popularity over the years. Usually set on beautiful camping grounds, lodges, or open woods, these venues provide a perfect, romantic backdrop to some wonderful decorating trends. Here are 6 of some of our favorite woodsy wedding trendsthat will help you recreate your own midsummer night’s dream.
- Fairy lights and candles. Fairy lights in white, yellow, and pale blue tints can give the wedding venue the perfect woodsy atmosphere, especially for a reception outside. Wrapped around trees, trellises, or tents, these lights can easily be paired with larger paper lantern lights for visibility and decor. They also go well with carefully set candle lights on table wreaths for great romantic lighting for an ethereal effect.
- A “Family Tree.” A tree decorated with portraits of family and friends can add a personal touch that promotes unity among the married families. Small photos hung in wooden frames can add an elegant yet rustic look. Attendees can even enhance the tree using a Polaroid photo booth, where family and friends can hang their own instant pictures on the tree itself.
- Coffee and tea bars. There’s something rustic and homey about coffee that lends itself well to woodland scents. A coffee bar fitted with pour-over Chemex brews or French presses–both just utilizing hot water–reduces the amount of technology at the bar that fits well with the woodsy, natural feel. Loose leaf tea brewed in glass tea kettles also add beautiful, rustic looks to the table.
- Natural, eclectic seating. Seating trends are moving towards natural pieces, such as wood-backed seats and long, rectangular tables for grouped seating. In addition, you might not see the same pieces replicated at every table: plates can be mixed and matched, glassware can all be different–the eclectic look gives a sense of fun and spontaneity perfect for a woodland party. To give a sense of unity, tablecloths, centerpieces, or floral tresses backing the chairs can be identical or similar in a shared color palette.
- Reclaimed wood pieces all around. A hot trend in weddings involve integrating tree cross-cuts as a natural, woody motif. Tree limb coasters or placemats are popular, as well as tree stumps initialed with the couple’s names or heartsare used as a decorative element. A cross-cut limb can also be used as a cake stand, and a hollowed out log can hold a glass vase for beautiful flower bouquets to be set around the venue.
- Natural and textured fabrics. Bring in nature through clothing and fabrics to match up with the rest of the setting. For men, a tweed or corduroy piece suit can blend in with the woodsy palette due to their natural colors and textures. Or, a light worsted wool suit can also be matched to fit the theme.
