The Black Swan

From Lauren, the photographer: 

“We had a nice intimate, bohemian inspired setup at The Nest at Ruth Farms in Ponder, TX. We decided to go with black gowns for a more moody and dramatic feel. The gowns were brought to life with a beautiful floral headpiece by Details Dallas, which completely encompassed everything we were looking for. We admire the beauty of marriage and love, and we really wanted to showcase that in our own way.”

With a stunning white barn as the backdrop for this inspirational shoot, the black gowns and deep red floral arrangements create a dramatic contrast that gives this rustic wedding scene an edge. From the cake and macaroons accented in gold to the feathered details throughout, the mix of nontraditional texture and color make for a bold alternative to the classic wedding aesthetic.
