The beautiful actress, Amber Tamblyn recently tied the knot to actor, David Cross in a very rustic wedding in upstate New York. Not only did the actress wear a beautiful yellow gown but she also arrived to the ceremony in a canoe, what is more rustic than that? Since all the major entertainment media outlets have been covering this wedding I have had some request from readers to give some advice on how they can plan a wedding like Amber & Davids. Here are my tips, ideas and suggestions for planning an equally rustic chic event.
Since Amber & David choose to say their “I Do’s” in upstate New York and you too can pick an equally amazing venue as they did. My suggestion is to book Cedar Lakes Estate. Located only 70 miles from New York City, this venue offers a lakeside ceremony location very similar to the one that Amber & David went with.
Amber selected a bright yellow gown for her “wedding in the woods” as the couple described it. If you are in love with the recent yellow wedding gown trend, you need to first read our post on yellow wedding gowns and then start your search for the perfect one. Here is a picture of the amazing, Amber in her gown and then a few suggestions that we have.

Amber arrived at the lakeside ceremony in a canoe and in bare feet. Arriving to a wedding ceremony by canoe is a romantic idea that brings back a piece of something from out of another era. Don’t want to spend the money to buy a canoe for the wedding, think about renting one. Many resort towns often have marinas and outdoors shops that usually rent canoes by the day at a very reasonable rate.
Amber & David went with a simple outdoor ceremony with minimal decorations. I love how they arranged the chairs in a very proper fashion but there is also a very casual feeling about it. The couple decided to forgo a ceremony focal point like some couples decide to go with like a birch wedding arbor or a wedding garden arbor.
If you are trying to decide on what to wear to a rustic wedding all you need to do is take a good look at what celebs, Ryan & Blake wore to this wedding. Adding such fall staples such as tweed blazers, sweater dresses with boots and plaid dress shirts compliment the style and location of the wedding perfectly. Our suggestions for outfits all come from Ralph Lauren.

Give our little friends from the woods an important role to play, let them be the cake topper. Below is the cake topper that Amber & David went with and then in addition to that is a very cute lookalike topper that I found on etsy.
