Rustic Romance Styled Shoot at Flying V Ranch
by Kaitlyn August 2
With organic floral centerpieces hanging from the trees, whitewashed pews and vintage details to-die-for, this styled shoot at Flying V Ranch has rustic romance we won’t soon forget! Pink Champagne Paper created simplistic stationery in creamy neutrals that popped against a rustic backdrop, and HoneyLove Cakery‘s cake with stuccoed white frosting kept the neutral theme going, letting the natural beauty throughout Flying V Ranch truly take center stage. A gauzy table runner elevated the sophisticated yet rugged look of the tablescape beneath a jaw-dropping suspended floral arrangement, and ghost chairs juxtaposed beautifully alongside the farm table brought a touch of modern to the scene thanks to Posh Couture Rentals. Scroll below to read all about the inspiration behind this styled shoot and the story of how this venue and talented vendor team came together. Cheers to rustic romance and amazing al-fresco celebrations!

From the planner: “Every element of this shoot was pure magic. Drawing inspiration from the muted tones and drought-ridden fields that scatter throughout southern California, we created this stunning al-fresco wedding editorial. Many people wouldn’t believe that north Texas and southern California share many similar landscapes, but the soft rolling hills, natural grasses, and endless evening sun are a perfect match. We wanted to bring the trends the west coast has been seeing to the heart of Texas. Letting your natural venue speak for itself is the best way to simplify the design process. Don’t force anything, but allow the colors to be accents to the surrounds.
Flying V Ranch, with its sprawling fields and vintage charm, was the perfect setting this naturally rugged romance shoot. The golden hour light filled every corner of the family-owned ranch. Operated by the sweetest mother-daughter duo, Flying V Ranch is a hidden gem just outside of Fort Worth, Texas. Originally a cattle auction barn, the interior space brings your white shiplap dreams to life. Using her interior design background, Page Warner has design every element on the property to cohesively blend the vintage charm you seek in Texas with modern architectural elements. It’s as if Fixer Upper and Restoration Hardware came together to create the perfect background for your wedding day. The lands that surround the barn and ceremony space make you feel as if you’re in your own private piece of southern paradise. You’ll immediately feel at home and completely comfortable in each space.”
