Barns, Horses, and Autumnal Goodness, oh my!

When a sweet horse named Alejandra comes strolling along in an inspiration shoot, all you want to do is pet her velvety muzzle, but when a computer screen gets in the way of that, the second best thing is to swoon over her and all of the beautiful fall-inspired colors set against the barn backdrop of Bandit's Ridge that is located north of Richmond. In a color palette of deep reds, pinks, and browns, this is the rustic lover's ultimate dream come true!

With a custom bridal jean jacket donning Mrs. and blooms in lovely calligraphy, painted acrylic signage, the coolest mobile bar à la pickup truck, and warm fall light for days, Hannah Louise Photography, Brooke Engel Events, and the whole creative team envisioned a bespoke rustic romance perfect for couples looking to have a stylish homegrown wedding celebration. Wild greenery and gorgeous textures make up the unique floral arrangements that perfectly complement the bride's boho statement fringe earrings, high neck halter lace wedding dress, and adorable red cowgirl boots. We just want to snatch one of those donuts and find a cozy spot on a hay bale with this one!
