Elegant Americana inspired shoot by Arielei Kinzer Photography

elegantIt’s America’s Birthday and we are celebrating in true PWG style with a styled shoot that is ABSOLUTELY gleaming with patriotism +  rustic fierceness! It’s a given, anytime Arielei Kinzer is behind the camera you know pure perfection is sure to ensue and she delivered on that promise with this one. Y’all… scrolling through the images of this shoot seriously made my heart beat faster!  Here’s what Arielei had to say about bringing her vision for this stylized shoot to fruition:
 “The sun is bright, summer is in full force, and it’s time to break-out the pies and fireworks. Americana- that lovely red, white, and blue! It brings us all together to celebrate something we all share. It’s a uniting holiday, a holiday full of fun, and full of iconic patterns and pallets.
We love the classic blue and white farmhouse dinnerware,  the all-american pies with a modern twist (we made them mini and put them on a pie-bar), and the way this vintage hairstyle and red lipstick goes perfectly with patriotic elegance. All set against our beautiful Southwest background in Santa Fe, NM and topped with a faded, old flag (which by the way, makes the perfect wedding photo prop!)  Not to mention a bombshell blonde in a Justin Alexander wedding dress and some gorgeous calligraphy to tie it all together.
If you love the red, white, and navy, and you love a little classic meets farmhouse, ranch meets elegant, then this Americana wedding inspiration is perfect for you!”
