Southern Rustic Wedding: Stoney Cattle Ranch

One of Stewart Mountain Lodging‘s venues is called Stoney Cattle Ranch. It is a beautiful barn and home in Heber just off the highway. Last week, we catered a rustic southern wedding there and the reception was stunning.
The bride chose to go with a feminine cowboy theme: she had all the girls in lacy cream dresses with cowboy boots and the men wore 3 piece suites. For the guest tables she had beautiful arrangements of flowers in cream and white with soft greens with burlap and bark-covered vases.

The bottom floor is a big (clean) barn area. Twinkle lights were wrapped around every post and even formed a little canopy. We had all 6 of our buffet tables off to one side- that really helped the flow of hungry guest traffic.

Our buffet tables were decorated with burlap, wooden trays, different risers, and rustic tea lights.  We used very little metal trays because we wanted to go for more of an earthy feel.

We had these cute chalkboards for signage
The bride wanted real silverware for her guests to use. We served them in bark covered vases.


Adding height to the buffet really makes for a great visual appeal as well as it being easier for guests to serve themselves.

And take a look at the bunches of flowers added to the buffet. Gorgeous! I love the cream, white, green, and brown color palate.

We filled different shapes and sizes of mason jars with combinations of cocoa beans, pepita seeds, rocks, and craisins
The glow off these candles is so beautiful


All these pictures are just of the main floor. The upstairs has a very nicely decorated living room, and a few smaller rooms off to the side. It’s a great little condo with a full kitchen, great for big parties or a cozy vacation.

Stay Tuned: Friday’s post will be all about the food from this wedding
