5 Real Wedding Examples: Terra Cotta Boho Weddings full of Pampas Grass

What style are we loving for weddings?! The bohemian vibes of terra cotta and pampas grass used at any time of year! Some brides opt to add greenery into their decor and some choose to leave the dried flower look. Some brides go for a cinnamon-colored terra cotta and others go for a more orange hue. Some include textures like suede and velvet and others like a light and airy look with whites and ivories.

Let’s take a look at five real weddings that Hitch Studio had the pleasure of doing the wedding decorating and wedding planning for! The first is Lane + Alex Bauer in Mitchell, South Dakota. Then we’ll highlight Abby + Dylan Dulas in Volga, South Dakota, Shana + Caleb in Harrisburg, South Dakota, then Taylor + Landon Hammer also in Volga, South Dakota. Last, but certainly not least, we’ll show you Kayla + Walker Sik’s wedding in Brookings, South Dakota. Each couple used the boho style in a different and beautiful way!

Lane and Alex in Mitchell, South Dakota

Held in the beautiful Highland Conference Center, Lane and Alex had a gorgeous wedding reception! They used white chargers, camel-colored suede linens at the head table and reserved tables (what a great idea to save some money — focus your money and efforts on a few highlighted tables for spendy linens!) and lots of gorgeous outdoorsy details like deer antlers and wood. The best part is all the decor you see was complimentary from Hitch Studio’s decor collection.

Abby + Dylan in Volga, South Dakota

Abby and Dylan had their reception at Schade Vineyard & Winery in Volga, which is eight miles from Brookings, South Dakota. With an outdoor tent to decorate, their vision came to life with Hitch Studio’s decor and 3 Carat planning! Wow, we loved their guest book table, gold chargers, and real eucalyptus at tables (another great tip — add real greens in with our artificial flowers and dried pampas to give your centerpieces a fresh look!). They also built a custom pallet wall for their head table with a neon sign!

Shana and Caleb in Harrisburg, South Dakota

Have you ever been to The Meadowbarn at Country Orchards in Harrisburg? It’s near The Veranda (another venue on the same property) and both are so outdoorsy and gogeous! Shana and Caleb’s wedding vibes fit this venue perfectly. They wanted a little bit of country (cue the bull skull and cowhide rugs), a little bit of glam (cue the amazing velvet/suede linens) and a little bit of low-key elegance (cue the centerpieces)! Hitch was thrilled to pull all three together in this beautiful wedding. Shana brought her own lanterns. That’s a great perk of using Hitch Studio for your decorating — we incorporate anything special that you bring into our decor as well! You’ll see Shana’s lanterns alongside our greenery and flowers and candles. One of our favorite parts of this wedding (because there are too many to count) were the furniture sitting area, the outdoor ceremony details, and the lit letters! She also added navy, which is a popular accent color to terra cotta.

Here are the vendors who helped pull it all together:

  • Wedding and Reception Venue: The Meadow Barn // 1690 Willow Street West, Harrisburg, SD 57032
  • Musician: Le Ann Meyer (piano)
  • DJ for ceremony and dinner music: CS Entertainment // Carter Schmidt
  • Florist: Hand Tied // Sheri Vaughn
  • Catering, cake and desserts: Craft // Brookings // Jesse Davis

Taylor + Landon Hammer also in Volga, South Dakota

Oh, Taylor and Landon! Our memories from your wedding day are so sweet! The ways your personalized your wedding day were so incredible! You used Hitch Studio’s decor, but the dessert shelf, the photo booth, the tall pampas grass stands, and so many sweet details came from YOU. We were the lucky ones to coordinate it all together, which was easy because your style was so cute! Your wedding ceremony and reception were both at Schade Vineyard and Winery in Volga and you had the most perfect weather for it! How did I get so lucky to also officiate your wedding and make your marriage legal? It was a special moment for me — and hopefully you too! Your boho wedding included touches of macrame, light and airy white, wicker, and lots of love. We LOVED it!

  • Bus: Destination Unknown

Kayla + Walker Sik’s wedding in Brookings, South Dakota

You’d think we would run out of things to say about boho weddings, but this terra cotta-colored wedding was unique with its golds, lots of greenery, wood elements, and neutral flowers they incorporated (with a touch of blush pink!), all at the large venue, Wilbert’s Square Event Center in Brookings. They definitely used a more cinnamon color with neutral tones.
