Golden sunlight, Texas magnolia leaves, and a gorgeous dapple gray horse turn this equestrian center wedding shoot into something absolutely magical! AR Photography and Jen Rios Weddings wanted to express their love of horses and inspire horse loving couples to incorporate these elegant rustic ideas into their own wedding day! The setting at Dallas adjacent BuckBranch Farm and timeless Ralph Lauren-inspired bridal style elevated rustic wedding ideas into exquisite wedding ideas filled with country charm!
The gorgeous stationery suite designed by Sugared Fig Paperie incorporated earth tones and rich neutrals to echo the colors of the winter landscape near Dallas. Luxe details like a tweed band and gold wax seal added an elegant country touch to the simplicity of the invitations.
What could be more perfect for a Southern wedding than a magnolia leaf bouquet? Olive Grove Designs created a white and green winter bouquet with seasonally blooming flowers, using lisianthus, roses, and amaryllis flowers with silvery eucalyptus and glossy magnolia leaves to add greenery and texture.
The bride looked incredible in a fitted crepe wedding dress from A & Be Bridal Shop in Dallas – the long sleeves and daringly low back created a timeless bridal look flirting with modern trends. The stunning silhouette could not have been more elegant in its simplicity, making a minimalist drop veil the only accessory needed! Stephanie Nelson Makeup & Hair created the most gorgeous updo to show off the open back of the wedding dress.
The ceremony at BuckBranch Farm embraced the rustic setting, with a woodland setting showcasing the earth toned beauty of the season. Olive Grove Designs dressed one of the equestrian center’s jump gates in foraged greenery, magnolia leaves, and white flowers, creating a beautiful ceremony backdrop that incorporated the elements of the venue while remaining true to the landscape.
Jen Rios Weddings turned the reception table into an elegant country retreat, dressing hand crafted farm tables from Sugar Creek Event Rentals with amber glassware and white flowers in vintage gold centerpiece vessels. Patterned place settings and embroidered napkins added to the rustic elegance of the decor, with hand lettered leather place cards at each plate.
This gorgeous bar embraces the Southern tradition of a good whiskey, served with style! The cut crystal decanters added a gleam to the woodland surroundings in the golden sunlight.
What equestrian shoot would be complete without an equine? AR Photography made sure to capture the exquisite bond between the bride and the majestic dapple gray to showcase how incredible these animals truly are!
