I just love an inspiration shoot that combines two unexpected wedding styles to create something fabulous, and this “Western Couture” shoot from Lydia Photography definitely does that! Here’s a little glimpse before we get into the details…

 Lydia provided us with an awesome little story and description of this “Western Couture” shoot…

“Imagine the only daughter of a rancher getting married to the man of her dreams. She loves elegance but also the rustic authenticity that she grew up with. So lace, twine, burlap, and wood were the main textures, and I tried to create and reuse things rather than buy new. The napkins were vintage handkerchiefs, the table was an old wood door lined with a cut up burlap feed sack, and the food platters and cake plate were made from a cedar tree that came down from a snowstorm. Even the cake stand was special as it was an old wooden box that my grandpa used to hold dynamite when he worked in the coal mines of Pennsylvania. Mismatched chairs paired with a borrowed chandelier complete the tablescape. The wedding dress was a fabulous find at a thrift store that I combined with a cute Anthropologie cardigan and jewelry created from an old vintage pearl choker. Hello Western Couture!”

Gorgeous, right? What do you all think of combining western with couture? I. Am. Loving it! Especially the way they accessorized the bride- the cardigan, the necklaces… love love love! And of course it helps that the photography is beautiful! A big thank you to Lydia Photography for sharing this amazing shoot with us!

    Dear lydia photography,
    I adore this posting. I’ve always had a thing for weddings, and stumble upon many, but i had a weak spot for this one, to say the least. i loved the wedding invitation and the boots most of all. thanks so much for sharing. happy matrimony to the newlyweds concerned, and god bless you all.
