Set at the sprawling Kilham Farm in Nicasio, California, this equestrian wedding inspiration shoot pulls at the heartstrings of every horse-loving bride. Whimsical touches, an eclectic mix of fall colors, and ample sunlight create a radiantly romantic scene fitting for a picture-perfect bride.
The color palette consists of both traditional fall colors and a few feminine hues, as well. Bold reds, dark burgundy, and vibrant pinks combine for dynamic style throughout the day.
The pretty details are noticeable first in the bride’s veil and bouquet. The lace flowers on the hem of the veil pair exquisitely with the plush roses in her collection.
The invitation suite is simple but sophisticated with its white parchment and elegant rose-hued script.
The bouquet is ideal for a countryside setting. It features abundant texture and color that makes it a standout creation no matter where she roams. And it is tied with a hearty red ribbon that stands out against her white gown.
The bride’s hair is styled in a beautiful statement braid with curled blonde locks. She accessorizes with the long veil that gathers at her feet.
The romantic table is set with tall taper candles amid a gold vase overflowing with lush blooms and elegant china and flatware.
Natural wooden chairs adorned with greenery tie in the rustic location.
The naked cake features a bold pop of color. Dark burgundy dahlias are placed alongside pink garden roses for a contrast in color, while the entire creation sits on an ornate tray.
Four-legged friends are all around and the bride leads one out into the pasture. Alongside the trusty horse, one can see the billowy tulle skirt of her gown.
With the natural, bright setting, her bouquet and veil are eye-catching, along with the sparkling details of her gown.
The bride also changes up her look for variation. She pulls her curls in a low updo and removes her veil in one shot. In another, she wears a gold beaded headband for a touch of sparkle and glamour.
She also takes a timeless floral-inspired comb and tucks it ever-so-gently into her hair for another lovely accessory.
Her bridal look is almost effortless as she makes her way through the tall grasses of the farm. She has captured the perfect style for a bride who just wants to explore the outdoors alongside her horse.
This shoot strikes a balance between seasonal colors, timeless elegance, and the equestrian lifestyle. The style is flawless and light, offering inspiration for any bride looking to incorporate her best furry friend into the best day of her life.
