Congrats to Desarae & Justin on their June 7 wedding, captured by Y-Cross Photography of Hulett, WY! The Wedding was located on the Starck Cattle Ranch in Lusk, Wyoming. “We had the ceremony looking out to one of my favorite spots on the ranch not far from the horse barn where the reception was held,” Desarae says. “The ranch is such a special place to us, we knew we wouldn’t want to confess our love for one another at any other location.” Justin’s parents had tossed around the idea of building a new horse barn. “When we expressed to them we wanted to get married on the ranch they thought there wasn’t a better time to start making the new horse barn a reality!” Desarae adds. “We spent nine months building the horse barn from his parents’ vision.” Most of the wood used was cut down and even saw milled by the couple from the ranch. “It was so special putting all that time and energy into something that when it was finished was just as amazing as you dreamed it would be. Plus it held a very special place in our hearts knowing our family pulled together and was able to build something so beautiful.”
Another big part of the wedding was the Annual Starck Cattle Branding:
“Before I met Justin, I was just a Colorado girl who had some horses, pigs, and chickens. I never had the opportunity to experience the ranching lifestyle. Once I got the opportunity through his family’s cattle ranch it didn’t take long for me to truly respect and love the ranching way of life. I believe brandings are one of the best times — there is such a great western camaraderie, always with lots of family and friends, oh and you can’t forget the delicious food after the work is done! I truly enjoy brandings and I wanted my wedding guests who never had the opportunity to see what a cattle branding was all about, to be able to experience it — so we decided to give an open invite for all our wedding guests to join us the day before the wedding for the Annual Starck Cattle Branding. It was an amazing time full of family and friends – we couldn’t have been more blessed! The next day with those same family and friends we shared our vows in their presence and confessed our love – it was a beautiful day, and one that we will never forget!”
Thanks Desarae for sharing, and to Y-Cross Photography of Hulett for the beautiful images! CONGRATS to Desarae & Justin!
We greatly appreciate the incredibly talented photographers across the state who share their work with us – like Ardent Photography of Laramie, who shared this recent photo shoot at the Laramie Train Depot in Historic Downtown Laramie with us… This was part of a course that they host, called Ardentology, and it’s a super popular one! The lovely model is Alisha Ann, who’s also Mrs. Laramie 2015, who has appeared in the fashion shows in our Cheyenne & Laramie expos! Her beautiful dress is from Mountain Valley Bridal (also in Downtown Laramie), and the flowers are by Fresh Flower Fantasy!
Always love the opportunity to promote many great Wyoming vendors in one place!
Have your guests leave a bit more than just their name behind on your wedding keepsake… Check out this fun idea that we’ve seen different places online, which has lots of variations floating around – your creativity is your only limit!
Shoesday Tuesday… I like to talk about shoes, but accessories as a whole are fair game. And since my shoe wardrobe consists of my Solomon hikers and workout shoes right now, I’m not feeling too adventurous… BUT when it comes to scarves to wrap up in, I’m a happy girl. So I looked for a little scarf + wedding inspiration today, and came up with some lovely ways to incorporate your favorite chilly weather wrap into your decor…
Thanks to E&R Photography of Casper for sharing this beautiful wedding! I am in love with the details in Bailey & Brandon’s gorgeous wedding, held in Beartrap Meadow on Casper Mountain and Paradise Valley Country Club on June 21, 2014. Thanks again to E&R Photography…
Thank you to Shon’s Photography for sharing this beautiful Torrington wedding with us! Shon shared some of the details of Katelyn & David’s special day…
“Katelyn and David were united in marriage on June 21, 2014 at the bride’s parents’ home in Torrington, WY followed by a reception, dinner and dance at the couple’s “Barn Home” which they built themselves in Veteran, WY. The wedding was a small private wedding for close family only. The matron of honor was Katelyn’s sister Jessica from Cheyenne; the best man was the groom’s brother Jeff from Sheridan. The flowers were freshly cut sunflowers. Katelyn’s dress was her mother’s wedding gown from 1982 (Mike Benet Formals); the car was a 1967 Chevy Camaro owned by her father, Tom. Dixie cups of sunflower seeds were thrown as the couple exited the ceremony. Instead of a wedding cake, the couple served varieties of freshly baked pies and cookies. The tables were decorated with tea lights, lanterns, burlap table runners, fresh sunflowers in wine bottles, and sunflower seeds.
