My Sunday Love this week had to be the marriage of two American dynasties as David Lauren wed Lauren Bush, it was a stunning luxe Western Wedding.  They married at Ralph Lauren’s family estate in Colorado with a theme of ‘rustic elegance’ and magnificent Western detailing.  Groom David explained that the Wedding felt like  A beautiful movie, like you were riding across the Old West and you stopped in at a wedding.” Er no kidding David…

And if there was any doubt the bride’s wedding dress was designed by Father-in-Law Ralph Lauren.  I walked in, and there were these beautiful illustrations of the looks we’d discussed with my face on them,” bride Lauren recalls. “It was like a dream come true. We sat together and arrived at this silhouette. It isn’t Victorian exactly. I wanted something modern as well, so there is the high-necked collar and puffed shoulders with the large open back.”  The incredible gown came to life in antique ivory tulle, hand embroidered silk Renaissance-era scroll designs and flower motifs, Swarovski crystals and pearl beads.

I love that the bride chose to wear cowboy boots with ‘something blue’ socks!  And for a seamless luxe Western Wedding theme dressed her bridesmaids in vintage prairie skirts, cowboy boots and waistcoats.  But the question is, should the bride now be known as Mrs Lauren Lauren?
