Southwestern Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

The second we saw the rich colors, the feather centerpieces, and the gorgeous couple behind this shoot from Sarah Kathleen Photography and {ever after} artistry, we knew we had to bring it to the masses. We just adore all the touches that make this Autumn Harvest reception set-up complete!

From the photographer, Sarah: It’s officially fall, so what better way to celebrate the arrival of boot, sweaters, and scarves weather than with an Autumn/Harvest Love Story? <\em>

For the venue, I chose Holland Ranch in San Luis Obispo, CA. I didn’t want there to be any architecture or man made structures in the photos, and Holland Ranch is set against one of my favorite landscapes in the county. I made an exception for the boat… because it was just too darn awesome. In the end, every single detail was perfect. There was absolutely nothing forced or fake about anything — everything felt so real and organic. Scott and Ashley made for the perfect models, as well. They only recently got married last August, so they’ve definitely still got the wedding love-bug :)
