Chic Ranch Wedding with Mountain Views and Galia Lahav dress
Mountain views, a stunning bridal party and one heck of a dress - this real wedding from photographer Connie Whitlock and planner/stylist Banks and Leaf has us scraping our jaws back up off the floor. Romantic, elegant and plenty of timeless neutrals means this ranch wedding with an epic backdrop is one we won't forget in a while...
From Banks and Leaf: "Kaitlin and Blake were meant for each other. If it wasn’t obvious in the constant flow of happy tears, it certainly was when the groom told the bride to “Va-va-voom it up, girl!” when the bride needed help deciding on which design style of wedding gown to choose. And we are so tickled he gave her that advice, because Kaitlin’s dress was a showstopper. The stunning Galia Lahav gown ended up being the perfect representation of the entire wedding: romantic, with a soft feminine aesthetic and chic touches."
"The ceremony, with breathtaking mountain views, took place under an arbor filled with sprawling greenery and 10 bridesmaids and groomsmen (they are well loved!). Guests were greeted to dinner by a large glamorous mirror adorned by their names and table assignments. A large wood king's table set for a feast sprawled down the center of the room for the bridal party. Guests were seated at round tables with soft grey linens, wood cross-back chairs, and delicate neutral florals. Wrought iron chandeliers were softened by the creamy draping—adding the right amount of femininity to an otherwise masculine and rustic space. Sweet sugarfina favors were at each place setting: a personal nod to the bride, who works in the sugar industry. This wedding radiated class, romance, and most importantly, a whole lotta love."
