A western wedding

Former model, Lauren Bush, said "I do" to her new man, David Lauren, son of fashion icon Ralph Lauren, over Labor Day weekend at the family’s 17,000-acre Double RL ranch in Ridgway, Colorado. A spread of the nuptials is featured in this month's edition of Vogue magazine.

The ceremony was small and intimate with a country western feel.  The setting for the couple's Big Day was simply breath-taking and romantic, and to top it off, Bush's gown was designed by her new father-in-law. A dream come true for any bride!!
The bride wore a strapless, antique ivory gown with an overlay of tulle richly embroidered with metallic thread, Swarovski crystals and pearl beads.The strapless high neckline covered in lace is similar to Kate Middleton’s wedding gown, which is all the rage in bridal design this year. 

In the Vogue piece, Bush comments that the gown, "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.” 

Nearly 100 craftspeople spent 3,000+ hours hand-embroidering the tulle with a delicate flower motif and Renaissance-era scroll design. 

To maintain the country western/tasteful Little House on The Prairie feel, the bride wore cowboy boots, as did her five bridesmaids. Her girls were dressed in white linen blouses, vests, and vintage prairie skirts.
