Prairie Wedding

“It started out because we wanted to do something with beautiful Claire Pettibone Gowns and Free People accesories,” Lauren said. ”but it ended up being a love song to our home state of Kansas. We found ourselves shooting on nature preserves with real buffalo, elk antlers, arrowheads, golden wheat fields, and at histoical museums with real pioneer homes and props like boots & buffalo hides from the 1800′s. The photographer [Chelsea Mitchell] and I have often asked ourselves what a wedding would have looked like in the time of Wyatt Earp, and the days of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Women.” Lauren says. ”For lack of a better term, we went back to our ‘grass roots’ and drew inspiration heavily from that era. We were very lucky to have Claire [Pettibone] ship three wonderful gowns to us, two from her Windsor Rose China Collection and the third from the Beau Monde Collection.Not one to take herself too seriously, Lauren was able to balance out the nostalgia by tapping into that seductive spirit that’s often evoked when envisioning the wild west. She used affordable accessories ranging from a gold circlet head piece to hand-crochet sandals (both from Free People) to turn up the volume on Boho pride.” written by editor of Wedding Nouveau Magazine, Fri F.
