How about a little time honored  tradition mixed in there with some of  the most cutting edge looks in bridal fashion?  Our canvas for this editorial is the pastoral Presidio Riding Stables out at Fort Cronkite in San Francisco.  My friend,  Samantha Smith who is a lifestyle and fashion photographer developed this lovely rustic theme.    When we got together to toss around concept, we knew we wanted horses, plenty of countryside and distressed old barns that look like they are about to collapse any minute.  The juxtapose of these elements seems  to accentuate the luxurious fabrics and laces.  What the whole crew who worked this shoot loved most was the incredibly gorgeous the day and how the natural light brought out the best in these pieces.  Kudos to  all who participated in creating this stunning inspiration.
