Western Couture Wedding | Styled Inspiration

I come across so many brides who are so overwhelmed with planning their wedding that they don't know where to begin. Don't stress and don't just give up and do what everyone does! Start by sitting down with your fiance and thinking through what you want your guests to experience when they come to your wedding. What style or feel would best express who you are as a couple? City chic? Bohemian romance? Western couture? Whatever you name it, this theme will be your guide as you pick your location, dress, details--everything! No matter how simple or elaborate, the most beautiful wedding are those that reflect the personalities and love of the bride and the groom!

I hope this shoot inspires you to create a day that truly reflects you and your fiance! Throw off the typical, take a few chances, and you may be surprised at how wonderful it turns out!

Thanks so much to all the wonderful wedding vendors who helped to make this shoot so amazing! What started off as simply ideas in my head was transformed into reality through their help!

Love the elegant and yet rustic feel of all the paper details! They went perfectly with the wildflower feel of our florals!

Try mixing your elegant china with old pieces of lace and use vintage handkerchiefs as napkins!

These mason jars make a great seating chart as well as cups for your guests!

Mint leaves grown in the garden add that special touch when plating food, and don't forget the handmade wooden platters!

The table was created from an old antique door!

Mismatched chair make the setting unique and personal!

A crystal chandelier is always in style!
