Thanks to Ashley Wilkerson Photography in Jackson for sharing this spotlight with us!  I love what Ashley has done with these collage images — and check out the emotion in these images…what a neat couple! (Along with the boots! Beautiful!)

Here’s what Ashley had to say about Katie & Brian’s Big Day…and be sure to check out these amazing images!


With the bride from Cheyenne and the groom from Helena, Katie really wanted to have a beautiful wedding in her home state and the couple chose Jackson Hole as their destination!  On August 6th, Katie and Brian said their own vows in an intimate wedding ceremony before the Tetons at Open Meadows Ranch in Wilson.

Katie and Brian also met up with me the following day for an extended portrait session both in casual wear and wedding clothes!  We had a great time shooting at my favorite spots to get a different view of the mountains, while giving the couple beautiful photos that they can treasure for a lifetime!

Thanks Ashley! Be sure to click here to visit Ashley Wilkerson Photography in Jackson — thanks for sharing these amazing photos, lots of great ideas here!

WEDDING SPOTLIGHT: Jennifer & JD’s Beautiful Teton Wedding

LINK BACK TO OUR WEBSITE TO FIND A WY VENDOR:  www.wyoweddings.com

Thanks to Jennifer & JD and Carl of Alpen Glow Images in Jackson for providing a new wedding spotlight! Since I was on the road much of last week, I will have an extra wedding spotlight up for this week. I’m going to let Jennifer & JD tell the story of their 9-10-11 wedding (love that!), but I adore that they were looking for an old barn that had ‘stories to tell’…what a beautiful way to start a marriage and their own future full of stories to tell…OK, and seriously — check out Jennifer’s veil. GORGEOUS. WOW!!!


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

JD and I were married in Jackson Hole, Wyoming at the Moulton Barn with the stunning Tetons behind us because we are good ‘ol country folk and wanted a small country wedding with an old barn that had several stories to tell. Our favorite place to be is the mountains so why not pick the grandest in Wyoming?! 🙂 The wedding had 12 guests, (15 including photographer and pastor Alan Bergeron.)  Julie from Charral Floral did my flowers…and we chose sunflowers, wildflowers, fall leaves, and grasses…everything turned out amazing!  I wore some amazing white Tony Lama 3R buckaroo cowboy boots under my Maggie Soterro dress. He wore an old rifle jacket and old shirt from Scully with Cinch Jeans..he looked like he walked right out of the movie Tombstone…🙂 The reversal dinner was at the Gun Barrel and the food was amazing!  We stayed in nearby Alpine for a more small town intimate feel, and our reception was in Alpine along the Snake River in the trees with a  good ‘ol country style barbecue, country music, and a campfire. 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What a neat story! I love the details and the emphasis on rustic, western and intimate. What a great couple — and fun images! Thanks to Jennifer, JD and Carl from Alpen Glow Images in Jackson for sharing this story! (I’m still drooling over that gorgeous veil…)

You know, sometimes it’s just fun to post some cool pictures that have caught our eye over here at Wyoming Weddings…I started off thinking of a theme of pictures, or some sort of unifying thread that connects all of these, and then I thought…ah, heck with it…these are just things that we LOVE. Of course, what WE love may not be what YOU love — and that’s where we want to hear from YOU! Do you have something you adore? We’d love to see it!  With that in mind, we’re launching a new weekly series, called I LOVE _____.

INSPIRATION: Raft On!

LINK BACK TO OUR WEBSITE & FIND A WY VENDOR:  www.wyoweddings.com

Thanks to Laura from Dave Hansen Whitewater in Jackson for this awesome inspiration post! Are you hosting a destination wedding? Or perhaps bringing family and friends to Wyoming for your special hometown event? Be sure to plan some fun activities for them, and showcase what Wyoming is like — they’ll never be the same, that’s for sure! Laura shares one great idea…whitewater rafting! Check out this fun story — thanks Laura for sharing!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For all of us at Dave Hansen River Trips here in Jackson, Wyoming, there is nothing more exciting than being able to take a wedding party down the whitewater section of the Snake River. We love to celebrate L-O-V-E, especially if it involves rapids, paddles, and PFD’s (our owners Bud and Kelly fell in love on the Snake River and got married in Jackson, for gosh sakes!). When we get to witness the dynamic of new friends and old friends meeting for the first time, parents and grandparents getting out of their comfort zone for the sake of the bride and groom-to-be, and the bride and groom letting loose before (or after) the big day, we get giddy and nostalgic for romance, ourselves.

Gavin & Allison’s wedding rafting party! Look at that crowd!

That being said, this past Labor Day weekend was a special one for us. We were lucky enough to take sixty guests from Gavin and Allison’s wedding down the river on Saturday morning. Not only did the entire wedding party have a ridiculously amazing time getting soaked and paddling hard through the rapids, Gavin and Allison were treated like river royalty. They sported his-and-her cowboy hats and a “Just Married” sign on the back of their 8-man raft, plus they even got to ride the bull through the largest rapid on the river right now—Big Kahuna. We feel honored to have been a part of their wedding weekend here in Jackson, and we couldn’t be happier for two amazing people who have a fun an adventurous life ahead of them!

Raft on, Gavin and Allison, and congratulations to the coolest couple getting married in Jackson this summer!

Gavin, after their trip with us: “You all have been incredibly accommodating, and given us an experience beyond what we expected! Thank you so much, Dave Hansen!”

‘Til Next Time…I’m gonna quote Laura and say RAFT ON!!! Check out Dave Hansen Whitewater in Jackson by following this link!

WEDDING SPOTLIGHT: Nicci & Joe’s Sweet Saratoga Wedding

LINK BACK TO OUR WEBSITE & FIND A WY VENDOR:  www.wyoweddings.com

Thanks to Julie Livermore Photography in Rawlins for providing our spotlight this week!  These images are so beautiful — and I have to say, I LOVE that Joe wore pink! Way to go Joe — what a beautiful color to give an extra pop to this gorgeous outdoor wedding… I’ll let Julie tell their story:


Nicci and Joe got married on August 27th, 2011 near Jack Creek Ranger Station in the Medicine Bow National Forest — about 25 miles from Saratoga, WY.  Despite the remote location, the couple had around 250 guests in attendance, some who camped nearby for the weekend.  The wedding started out to be a rustic affair in honor of the groom’s love for the great outdoors, but the bride ended up adding some elegant touches…including pink and rhinestones to make it a little more her!  Even with the complex logistics and large bridal party, the couple remained completely serene and happy…with the stunning bride doing her own hair and makeup in a cabin right before the ceremony.

To further make the day theirs — the bridal party DANCED down the asile, all the way down to the arch made by the groom for his bride.  (This is where I have to insert: AWWWW!!!) With the large group of family and friends (including their three beautiful girls) in attendance, we had to sneak out to capture some romantic images of the couple alone.  The evening wasn’t over yet, dinner and dancing (complete with DJ Michael Munari) lasted well into the evening!  It was truly amazing to see everything come together so perfect, in such a remote and breathtaking location!  More images at www.julielivermorephotography.com.

Thanks Julie! What a sweet story…I love it when couples not only bring in their own personalities, but little details for their spouse that add that little extra ‘I love you’ to the day… These images are really fun! Thanks to Nicci & Joe and Julie for letting us share this special day!

Be sure to contact us if you have a wedding spotlight — whether you’re the bride, groom, or photographer, we’d love to hear from you! Wedding or engagement — we’d love to spotlight YOU! Email us at brides@wyomingweddingsonline.com!

‘Til Next Time…I’ve been listening to “My Fair Lady” songs while posting, so I have to say…MAKE IT LOVERLY! 🙂
