Thanks to Brian of BHPImaging in Laramie for sending us this gorgeous wedding from Cody…

 

Valli and Matt Vanderpool were married February 16, 2013 at the Holiday Inn in Cody, with their reception at the Cody Cattle Company…. After the ceremony, they took a trolley from the Holiday Inn to the Cody Cattle Comapny, with a quick stop at the Buffalo Bill Reservoir for portraits… This wedding was a party from start to finish, with awesome fun people!

I have to add that I LOVE these pictures…who knew that you could create beach images in Wyoming?!

Thanks to Double H Photography, based near Lance Creek, WY, for sending us this fun wedding spotlight! Here’s what Heather has to say about this sweet couple…

 

 

Charles and Andrea had to make several last minute adjustments to their July 20, 2012 wedding day, which was scheduled to take place near Vedauwoo, between Laramie and Cheyenne, but had to be moved due to fire danger. The couple took all the changes in stride, and managed to pull off a beautiful indoor wedding and reception. We even managed to sneak the bride and groom off to downtown Laramie for a few outdoor photos. A fun wedding party and guest list full of great people of all ages combined with the bright flowers and “go with the flow” attitude made this one of my favorite couples to date!

Thanks again to Heather of Double H Photography near Lance Creek for sending in this spotlight! If you’d like to see your wedding featured on our blog, it’s easy — shoot us an email at brides@wyomingweddingsonline.com!

ENGAGEMENT STORY from Disney World!

Ohhhhhh you guys, I LOVE this proposal story from Stephanie from Disney World, where I was hoping to see an engagement on Valentine’s Day this week when we were there…but alas, I did not. However, Stephanie saved the day by sharing her sweet story with us! Check this out!

My fiance David and I have known each other since high school and even dated for about a year and a half while there. We broke up when we went to college but reconnected in the fall of 2010. We went to Florida in August to see his family and went to Disney to celebrate his sister’s birthday. (Literally it is my favorite place in the world and I was there for the first time last March. ) So we were only in Disney for the day, and I was excited just to be there but David (my fiance) was insistent of heading straight to the castle to take pictures. His parents took a few pictures with us and then took some of the two of us. Then David said he wanted to take one more and got down on his knee…

I had always thought of how I might react or what I might say… but I just burst into tears and was too speechless. We got to wear “just engaged” buttons all over the park. It was awesome  Here is our picture!

Love love LOVE this story and picture! Thanks Stephanie so much for sharing! 🙂 (And they’re planning their wedding for September 28, 2013!)

INSPIRATION: Vintage Bridal by H. Michael Roberts

Thanks to H. Michael Roberts of Sheridan for sending these gorgeous vintage shots! There are three brides & three dresses profiled below, from different eras and ages — but all ‘vintage’ in that they have been worn & loved…

In these shots below, Kayla’s grandmother first wore this dress in 1958, and Kayla’s mother wore this dress 30 years later, in 1988. It looks lovely on Kayla — and I love to think that now three generations have worn this beautiful dress…(that I think could be very fitting today!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This next set of images features Ashley… Ashley wore this dress two years ago for her own wedding — and, Mike tells me, she is able to wear this dress again shortly after giving birth! (Can anyone see my green with envy expression through the computer?!) 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love these images of Kayla, wearing a dress & veil from a local thrift shop…

Thanks to Ludwig Photography in Laramie for sharing their look at Wyoming Sophistication and a beautiful bridal shoot! Mountain Valley Bridal in Laramie provided the attire, Fresh Flower Fantasy in Laramie the flowers, and Alexander’s Fine Jewelry in Laramie the beautiful ring. Here’s what Anne of Ludwig Photography had to say about this shoot…

“One of the biggest reasons we love Wyoming -incredible beauty and savoir faire. Brides are falling in love with simple, sophisticated, and elegant attire.  There is a trend of less is more and our setting: the new University of Wyoming Art Building  was perfect to highlight Max and Sean .Their  incredible bridal assemble (gown, jewelry and tuxedo) was provided by Mountain Valley Bridal. Flowers were the artistry of Fresh Flower Fantasy and their amazing ring from Alexander’s Fine Jewelry.

“Our 2013 brides are drawing inspiration from old world glamour with cinematic and literary influences .We had a wonderful time exploring the fun and flirtation between Max and Sean at the Historic Laramie Train Depot. This trend is already being reflected on red carpets and runways around the world.”

Thanks again to Ludwig Photography in Laramie for sharing this spotlight with us — beautiful ideas and images!
