We can always count on Adam Barnes Fine Art Photography to bring some serious sophistication to the wedding world. Today’s styled shoot, put together by Fête Studio with flowers from Anthomanic, seamlessly blends equestrian-inspired style with farm elegance for a look that’s reminiscent of archetypal Ralph Lauren.
From the event stylists, Fête Studio: For this Ralph Lauren inspired style shoot, we wanted to capture the designer’s unique talent for creating a style that looks simultaneously aristocratic and naturally elegant. Inspired by the crisp whites, dusty lilacs, powdery pinks and dove grays of Ralph Lauren’s Fall 2014 collection, the color palette set a romantic tone to complement the classic beauty of Mount Ida Farm in Charlottesville, VA. Then, to create a more dramatic look, we added accents of burgundy and navy and lots of texture, including plaid linens, wooden details, a long table garland, feathers, and a grand bridal bouquet of lisianthus, scabiosa and waxflowers.
Paying homage to Ralph Lauren’s equestrian flair, we dressed our bride in a second look with a black blazer, top hat and riding boots to pose with her husband and the magnificent Clydesdale horses in a field overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. We sought to craft fall wedding inspiration that exudes timelessness with a touch of drama, a nod to Ralph Lauren’s iconic brand.
