Perfectly Styled: Equestrian Wedding Inspo

Loyal followers, I’m sorry my presence has been spotty (at best) this week — keeping up has been TOUGH recently (totally my fault), and I’ve been a little too human for my own liking! That said, we missed Wedding Wednesday this week (which y’all KNOW is my secret favorite), and I wanted to make up for that today.

Let’s talk about Equestrian: not only is horse sport one of the oldest pastimes in the books (since medieval times, no pun intended), it’s also one of the most beautiful. Not everyone rides or loves a horse of their own, but most people inherently appreciate the history and class that lives in the Equestrian aesthetic. (Hermes built a business upon it in Paris, and girls everywhere don riding boots each winter as a style statement).

Refined riding has always been popular among a select set of citizens, but recently, we’re seeing a revival of equestrian design in the public eye – specifically in the wedding industry. I’m starting to ride again at a local barn in September, and last weekend, Kaella Lynn Events pulled off a wedding in Los Altos with an equestrian vibe – so I’ve got horses on the brain! Here are some of my favorite inspirations for an equestrian wedding that is equal parts girly, classic, and traditional:
