Rustic Glam Desert Wedding at the Ruin Venue
Write up from Green Wedding Shoes:
You guys arent sick of dreamy California desert weddings + styled shoots, are you? Silly question, right?! We arent either! There are so many ways to make a desert backdrop work, and todays feature is a prime example of what we mean. Staged at The Ruin Venue in Yucca Valley, California, Carillo & Co. designed a few inspiring vignettes that remind us of all the reasons why we LOVE the desert. In addition to simply showcasing something pretty, we really think this shoot shows us firsthand the variety of styles of events that can feel right at home in the magnificent desert, including a more refined, elegant scene.
When it came to the location the photographer behind the beauty, Kristina Adams, explains, The venue itself is what is left of an old stone home, complete with a working fireplace and open windows. The current owners imported old olive trees and built a gorgeous courtyard enclosed in stone the perfect place for a wedding reception or dinner party. The moment we found the site, we knew we had to shoot here!
Our style notes:
We love a wedding that throws off your expectations and inspires with unexpected combinations. Take this ultimate glam wedding style set in desert ruins-- it would have been easy to put the bride in a ivory lace vintage style gown and the groom in a tan or grey three piece suit-- but how about dressing the bride in a gold and black dramatic gown and the groom in a navy tuxedo with black accessories-- this is what inspirational wedding styled shoots are all about! Add in overflowing floral arrangements, blue and gold table decor and wedding cake and you've got a magazine-worthy wedding. Vendors get together to combine their unique talents and put together a wedding style that only the most adventurous brides would take on. Hope you are as amped up about this style as we are!!
