black + gold wedding inspiration in rugged west texas

Designed and styled by the amazing Clayton Austin and photographed beautifully by Leighanne Herr, today’s inspiration shoot embodies the rugged and individualistic vibe of West Texas.

Tucked away against endless plains is a fun little artist community town of Marfa where tepee hotels can be found and menus are made from scrabble tiles glued to walls. It’s the perfect place for a wedding inspired by an editorial as unique and as stunning as this one!

From Leighanne Herr – “This wedding inspiration shoot designed by the talented Clayton Austin draws from the raw, natural landscapes of West Texas. Warm, earthy tones mixed with vibrant patterns and textures complement each other perfectly to create an atmosphere that is reminiscent of the African Plains. The black and gold dress worn by the bride provides such a unique alternative to typical wedding attire. The bouquet and table centerpiece were made using dried and preserved florals, which perfectly embodied the beautiful yet rugged environment of West Texas.”
