Picture Farm Production travelled with photographer Tom Schirmacher and Condé Nast magazine BRIDES to Denton Hot Springs in Colorado for this rustic, glamping travel shoot.
“Planning a countryside wedding with wild west influences? Look no further than this expansive and gorgeous Colorado setting. And who better to model nouveau rustic styles than Victoria’s Secret model, and newlywed, Bridget Malcolm. The Australian stunner said ‘I do’ to rocker husband Nathaniel Hoho (who fronts the indie rock band Walking Shapes), in July in rural Pennsylvania, where loved ones gathered on the groom’s mother’s property. ‘It was a true country wedding,’ says Bridget, the face of brands like Polo Ralph Lauren and Lilly Pulitzer, who walked the aisle in a body-hugging lace gown from Australian label Lover. ‘We kept it rustic and light, mostly outdoors, surrounded by trees and under café lights. We wanted to see the sunset and fireflies.'”
“Even more epic than the straight-from-the-runway dresses, the amazing backdrop — ideal for a destination wedding! The Dunton Hot Springs, a 19th-century mining town turned western-chic resort an hour from Telluride in the Colorado Rockies, served as the perfect rustic background to show off classic wedding dress styles. Expect authentic log-cabin rooms, a saloon for dining, and a separate eight-tent glamping retreat, the River Camp, which is your Ralph Lauren fantasy come true, with draped canvas walls, cowhide rugs, gas stoves, and oversize soaking tubs. Brides can buy the whole resort out for up to 60 guests and exchange vows under a rustic wooden pergola surrounded by grassy hills (or snow, if you’re brave). The 1,600 acres of preserved wilderness are prime for guided hikes, rock climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing, and many a dip in the resort’s five namesake springs—one in the spa and others right outside the guest rooms, like nature’s hot tubs.” – Brides Magazine
