Looking for wedding inspiration? Here is a styled shoot that has me blushing! I am obsessed with how this Romantic Polo-Inspired Styled Shoot at the Cottages at Polo Run came out. All of us vendors are beyond excited to receive a feature in both California Wedding Day Magazine and Grey Likes Weddings. Click the links to see those awesome features!
When you arrive at The Cottages at Polo Run you are welcomed by a long driveway leading to three gorgeous white Cottages that are surrounded by roses, bougainvillea, trees, and vast mountain views. Adjacent to the Cottages sits the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club. Needless to say it is not hard to feel inspired by this gorgeous venue that just recently became available for Weddings.
When designing this shoot I wanted to pull inspiration not only from the venue but also from imagining the type of bride and groom who would regularly attend a Polo Match or participate in the sport itself.
Polo brings to mind imagery of sophisticated and glamorous individuals watching good looking gentleman play the classic sport. I don't know what says sophistication and glamour more than a Hayley Paige Ball Gown adorned with floral lace accents and a sweetheart neckline.
The sleek and classy updo by Cheek to Cheek artistry paired with gorgeous earrings from Maria Elena added the perfect finishing touch!
The dress easily became its own source of inspiration and from it came the idea to incorporate white flowing drapery. Not only was that drapery the ceremony focal point but it also carried over to the reception surrounding the beautiful white washed head table provided by MTB Event Rentals.
Crystal glassware by DishWish and handmade place cards by Kelly Patrice added the perfect touch of sophistication to the tablescape. The color palate reflected the venue itself with white becoming the primary color bringing in florals with shades of peach, pink, and greenery to complement the preexisting landscaping.
We couldn't have been able to pull off this styled shoot without help from our wonderful vendors! Follow them here!
