Up next is a photo shoot captured by Maggie Harkov that is blurring the lines of your typical rustic shindig and proving that you can take the wedding out of the city but you can't take the city out of the wedding. With sherbet hued florals by the lovely Blossom & Branch, a deliciously modern invitation suite by Seamless Paperie, loads of gorgeous confectionery treats courtesy of One Girl Cakes by Francina and an adorable horse that we just can't seem to get enough of, this shoot is opening up a whole new chapter in the Book o' Rustic. After all, who says you have to limit your city-infused festivities to the confines of a ballroom or fancy hotel? Try adding touches of modern glamour to more rustic surroundings for a fête that will knock your guests socks off. Modern Rustic, it's a new category and we're LOVING every second of it. You too? See it all here! And sit tight because coming up in a bit, we have a buying guide that's breaking down all the pretty components one by one.

From Maggie Harkov... As lovers of both the fabulousness of New York City and the simplicity and warmth of the country, we set out to style a wedding inspired by the greatness of each.  We wanted the shoot to evoke the feeling of warmth and depth one can only experience in the country while being filled with chic and modern touches that only the city can bring.

Courtney of Seamless Paperie used bold black and white type to represent the city juxtaposed with orange tissue details and gingham pattern to bring in the country feel.  All the paper goods incorporated both city and country elements throughout all designs to create a modern yet warm feel.

Sarah of Blossom & Branch used bright, sorbet inspired colors to play off the organic, muted tones of the farm. The designs were kept modern and sleek and poppies, tulips, sweet peas, peonies, Star of Bethlehem, lamb's ear, and bunny tail adorned the tables in silver "skyscraper" evocative containers to bring in subtle touches of New York City.

The bride wore a stunning feather cocktail dress that was the perfect balance of city in the country and finished off her look with black heels and fabulous modern accessories, all from Gabriella New York. The groom wore a modern bespoke suit from Duncan Quinn, and topped it off with a checkered grey bow-tie to bring the feel of the country back in.

Everything was aimed to have a certain warm sophistication, and the farm, horses, and modern touches all yielded what we found brought just a bit of the city into the country.
