Ready to kick those vows up a notch in baby blue cowgirl boots and a statement wedding gown? This colorful, California wedding at Whispering Rose Ranch in Santa Ynez mixed modern and western styles for the dreamiest inspiration. It has the perfect vibe and ideal location to ride off into the sunset while celebrating your vows on the rolling hills of the Santa Ynez Valley.
Nicole Leza planned and designed all the details for this styled shoot from top to bottom while Foxtails Photography snapped all the gorgeous photos along the way! We cannot wait to show you what they came up with. So without further ado…let’s get into it!!
Wedding With a Western Flare
Wild House Inc. created the perfect invitation suite that coincided with their whimsically western theme. Their goal as a company is to infuse unexpected design elements that leave guests feeling inspired and celebrated.
The inspiration behind the bride’s look was: a little bit western and a pasture full of elegance. You might think these two pieces can’t be combined but the fact is, everything can be curated to perfection with the right twist. Which makes us wonder…can western- chic be the new trend? We think YES!
The Ceremony + Venue
A western, floral dream was the ultimate inspiration here. Pairing in modern benches and white chairs showcased another area to add in unique pieces for the ceremony.
An aisle full of florals is the ultimate statement piece! This perfectly framed the ceremony and allowed the natural beauty of the landscape and venue to shine through.
A Delicate Tablescape
The team wanted to pull in elegance and modern styles to complement a western aesthetic, showing off how you can have a stunning ranch wedding with class!
