Horse Inspired Wedding Details

Your wedding is a reflection of your taste as well as meaningful events you’ve share with your partner. This elegant ranch wedding beautifully embodies one couple’s unique upbringings and shared love for horses. Gold horse details are paired with a pink and purple palette for this elegant outdoor affair. From the couple’s country chic style to the stunning sunset, we’re inspired by all of the special details Tana Photography captured from this wedding.

Wedding Style with a Country Kick

Let’s start with this couple’s classic style! On the outside they have a romantic look, and then a peek at the bride’s feet reveals an adorable ode to her southern roots.

Style Tip: Cowboy boots are a sensible shoe choice for a ranch wedding.

A Rich Color Palette

Deep purple hues, rosy pinks, and metallic gold details add a feminine touch to the rustic ranch setting. This pretty palette looks great on bridesmaids, too! Yes, those are gilded magnolia leaves mixed into the bouquets!

Creative Cocktail Hour Details

This is the perfect time to share your wedding hashtag and encourage guests to tag their photos. Once the bar is open, guests can sip signature cocktails and mix and mingle before finding their seats on a pretty little clothesline display.

A big red barn is an iconic country wedding staple, and it serves as the perfect backdrop for a reception under the stars. A grand estate table at the head of the dance floor is a sparkling centerpiece draped in a sequin tablecloth, and the surrounding tables create an intimate feel.

Each table has a glistening ombre table number, and you’ll spot horseshoes and miniature jockey figurines tucked into the decor to pay homage to the groom’s upbringing, spent surrounded by horses.

DIY Tip: Wedding DIYs can get overwhelming, so pick and choose projects that you can actually accomplish. DIY table numbers are a great place to start!

Assorted Sweets

A dessert buffet is certainly a crowd-pleaser. We can’t decide what looks better, the stunning “naked” cakes or the adorable horse-topped cupcakes!
