Modern Rustic Styled Shoot Inspiration


Photography: Kailey Louise Designs  Floral: Love Always Floral + Events

Vintage Rental Decor: The White House Co.   Venue: Rustic Oaks


For this photoshoot we partnered with some of our favorite Fargo wedding vendors to bring you some dreamy wedding inspiration. We love getting to work with people in our community and we always are excited to see what is created. In this post we included some inspiration photos, tips on achieving this style, and advice on creating your own mood board to help with utilizing the inspiration you find.




How We Achieved This Look

We achieved this look and color scheme by our choices in decor and floral. By sticking with a lot of greenery there was a very relaxed and fresh vibe. The look became more modern when we decided to stick with mainly white floral and only a few tiny pops of blue. We also got that amazing blue color by using White House Co.’s beautiful blue couch. The rustic feel is brought in by the natural textures of the wood and the greenery.


We put together a color scheme for this shoot for you to use as wedding planning inspiration.


Tips for Creating a Mood Board

We always think a important first step in the wedding planning process is creating a mood board. This is something you can bring to all your wedding meetings with vendors to give them an idea of your vision. When looking for what to add to your mood board you can look a few places. Many bridal stores and wedding magazines will post blog posts like this one with lots of wedding inspiration and Pinterest is a great place to find wedding inspiration images. The next step is to put all of these images in a document together, add a color scheme, and any other details such as what metal or materials you want to use for decor. If you go to Pinterest and search “Wedding Mood Boards” you will find many examples of what yours can look like.

A common belief regarding choosing a wedding dress is that the bride walks in knowing exactly what she wants. While sometimes this is the case, ending up loving a dress that is the absolute opposite of you what you had in mind is not only common, but can be a wonderful surprise! There is nothing wrong with straying from a preconceived notion of the perfect dress, as there are so many factors that go in to making such a big decision.

Your dream dress has to check a lot of boxes before you say yes, and a significant one that can sometimes be overlooked is the venue. How does the dress fit into your ideas about how you want to look as well as the place you are getting married at? If your wedding is on the beach, what style fits into that atmosphere? A wedding taking place in a cathedral is going to have an entirely different style than that of a rustic barn. Bringing together a dress that is perfect for you and perfect for the venue is something that the stylists at Your Day are here to help with!

A specific collection we carry called D.I.D. by Watters was inspired by these exact types of questions. How can a dress combine elements of a bride’s personality alongside the ambiance of the ceremony? The three stylists behind this exquisitely unique D.I.D. line found a way to design dresses that speak to romance, bohemia, elegance, and rustic beauty, allowing you the opportunity to find a dress you can fall in love with that will also compliment your venue.

Your Day’s selection exists to provide you every possible opportunity to find your dream dress and to embody the entire feel of your wedding. Our stylists will answer any and all questions, helping you find a dress to compliment both you and your venue!
