Western Nomadic Styled Shoot

Growing up, there was always a little part of me that wished I lived on Little House on the Prairie – and this styled shoot brings me right back to that time. With images from Buena Lane and styling + flowers by Lilify, their selected color palette of mustards, ivories, and browns nails the Western aesthetic.

From the photographer, Eileen of Buena Lane: Inspired by the picturesque sparseness of late autumn in Carmel Valley, we aimed to create and capture an aesthetic that was just a little bit raw with elements of simple rusticity. Georis Tasting Room, with its medley of textures and materials, proved the ideal venue to stage a Western Nomadic shoot. The styling and décor stemmed from a color schematic inspired by the austere surfaces of leather, wood, and rusted metal juxtaposed by bridal ivories and fall mustards.

The use of horseshoes tied to the escort cards, rosette pine cones as place card holders and feather accents reinforced the organic approach to a wedding celebration. With vintage Victorian dresses courtesy of Foxy Couture, the Bride wore a delicate white eyelet dress partnered with harsh cognac leather boots. For the bridal hair (by Oya Salon, with flowers by Lilify) we aimed for romantic, yet dramatic. Makeup artist Stacie Dunn composed a flawless, fresh face.
