Chandeliers add a touch of elegance to any wedding, whether a rustic outdoor fete or a classic ballroom wedding.

Chandeliers add a touch of grandness and elegance that is classic for modern weddings.

I especially love the elegant crystal chandelier strung over a rustic table with tall mountains in the background. I'm not sure what you call it: rustic chic? rustic elegance? But I love the grandness and glamour of a big crystal chandelier in a dusty, high desert setting. I'm also a big fan of hanging mix matched vintage lanterns from a tree. Or combining a classic crystal chandelier with brigthly-colored origami cranes.

I am continually impressed with the creativity and ingenuity of chandelier design and use at weddings. Brides are rethinking the standard crystal chandelier and using mason jars and bird cages to create the same effect. I love it all!

Another thing I love about outdoor chandelier design is they do not have to light up to create a stunning effect, especially for daytime weddings.
