Though Lauren Bush and David Lauren were married in September of this year, Vogue just published photos from their portrait sitting and ceremony in Ridgway, Colorado, at the Lauren family's gorgeous ranch in the Rocky Mountains. The couple described the wedding to Vogue:
“Rustic elegance,” says Lauren, who was born in Colorado and lived there until she was eight, describing the feeling of the wedding. “A beautiful movie,” David adds, “like you were riding across the Old West and you stopped in at a wedding.” With the Rockies and rolling cattle fields, decorating wasn’t a big concern. “You could put out paper plates and confetti, and it would be gorgeous,” Lauren says, smiling, “but we didn’t quite do that.”Bush revealed that she wore borrowed Victorian earrings, boots and blue socks (for that 'something blue,' of course). She worked closely with the groom's father, Ralph Lauren, and his team to bring her dream wedding dress to life. From Vogue:
The dress’s top layer is featherweight tulle in antique ivory. Some 100 craftspeople spent more than 3,000 hours hand-embroidering the tulle with delicate motifs of small flowers and Renaissance-era scroll designs in ivory silk and metallic thread, Swarovski Elements crystals, and off-white pearl beads.
