When you hear the word "country," a few things immediately come to mind: cowboy boots and horses. Our next wedding has both and a whole lot more. Some of our favorites are the altar made from an antique cattle feeder wagon and retired Disneyland draft horse that was used to bring the bride into the ceremony.
All beautifully captured by one of our Hand Picked Vendors, Volatile Photography. You can see more of this eclectic country wedding in the full gallery by clicking here.
From the Bride:The inspiration for this theme was easy for me - I grew up around horses living in Arizona, and although I might not look like a country girl most of the time, I feel most at home in a barn working with horses and listening to county music. Our florist did a fantastic job incorporating my colors, which were green & purple. There were many DIY projects involved with our wedding, and family members completed many of the projects. The centerpieces, before being filled with flowers from the florist, were all made from decorated mason jars. The flag banners, which were hung in the tent, were sewn by hand by one of my aunts. My mother decorated the altar with the country theme in mind, the combination of the wagon with flowers, desert plants, hay, and even my old riding saddle all came together to create a beautiful scene in a pasture on my parents’ property. It was great to be able to enjoy our day together in a casual and familiar environment with great people, food, and scenery.
Treated like a "well-dressed" country fair, the reception was decorated beautifully with handmade flag banners, and some of the beverages were even stored in horse troughs. Because the reception was held in the roping area on the property, the horses and cows were in stalls just right next door to the reception!
