Thanks to Alison of Travel Bug Fotos for sharing this beautiful Casper wedding with us! Alison shares a little detail about their day with us…
Amanda Mason and Lane Fischer of Casper, Wyoming held this beautiful wedding on a true working ranch. Amanda’s family works on the ranch where the wedding was held, with the added coolness factor that the decorations came directly from the ranch! The flowers used were wildflowers picked from the land. The table settings were elk antlers, that I assume were collected over the years. The backdrop to the head table were two big barn doors with the letter F in the center of it. The chairs during the ceremony were hay bails that came from the land as well. It was beautiful — and meaningful.
The ceremony was held out in the pasture under a big beautiful tree. She hung an old chandelier from the tree and under that was where they stood. Before the ceremony, we took group photos at a beautiful old barn on another side of the ranch. The barn had so much character but it only got better with this tiny old farmhouse that sat next to the barn. The porch was decaying and the paint was chipping. There was even a dead snake in the farmhouse. (It made for some pretty memorable photos!)
The reception was held in a large arena on the property where the bride would work on her various rodeo skills. The ropes that the bridesmaids carried, instead of bouquets, were used by the bride in competition over the years.
Overall, this day was perfectly Wyoming. And I am so thankful to have been asked to be a part of their beautiful day.

I’m in LOVE with wedding signs! This hot wedding trend for 2013 is just too too cute. They don’t need more introduction than just that — they pretty well speak for themselves (cue drum set) — so I’m going to shut my yap and commence to drool over some lovelies…

Thanks to Anne of Ludwig Photography in Laramie for sharing this beautiful ranch wedding… Here’s what Anne has to say about Meghan & Sean’s day:
This is one of our most favorite WYOMING true WEST weddings of all times, the wedding of Meghan and Sean Kennedy. Meghan contacted us a year before their wedding because she had heard about our Reflections album (an emotional story about them as a couple) that we create before each couple’s wedding day. In her heart she really wanted a beautiful image of both she and Sean on horseback in an uncut hay meadow. When we met with Meghan and Sean we fell in love with their relationship to each other and to the family ranch and their true western lifestyle. Sean was the typical quiet polite cowboy and let Meghan do most of the talking. It was so much fun seeing him open up over the year and tickle us with his Cowboy wit and sense of humor. It was obvious how much he loves Meghan. He may have been shy but around Meghan his eyes twinkled and his smile beamed. It was a joy going out to the Kennedy Vale Ranch to capture the iconic image Meghan had described of them both on horseback. And wow little did we know how good Meghan was with a lasso! Maybe that is how she won his heart when they first met at the University of Wyoming, by just roping him in.
The ranch was incredibly beautiful for the wedding. Sean and Meghan had been fixing fence, painting, cutting hay and getting everything just so for months. We had to laugh — everyone in attendance as well as the bridal party, family members and guests all had on their best cowboy boots and Meghan’s were to die for.
It seemed so fitting after the ceremony- two incredible horses were saddled up and ready for the bride and groom to make a getaway to a secluded aspen grove for some photographs as man and wife. Then a quick Wyoming rainstorm blew through as they raced each other on horseback back to the ranch house and a beautifully decorated white tent for the reception. Upon their arrival the most amazing rainbow appeared out of nowhere to grace the meadow where the delicious chuck wagon dinner and dance were to take place.
From time to time I chat with Meghan on Facebook as the phone service at the base of the mountain is poor and it is comforting to know (using a western phrase I’d heard old timers use when I was a kid) that the LATCH STRING IS ALWAYS OUT for me when I come to visit.
Thanks again to Ludwig Photography of Laramie & Portrait Artist Anne Brande for sharing this spotlight with us! I can visualize the story so well…this is truly a Wyoming fairy tale!

Thanks to Janelle Rose Photography of Cheyenne for sending in this fabulous engagement spotlight! Here’s what Janelle has to say about this fun couple…
“I love when couples want to do something fun and different for their photos. RaeLynn and Damien live in Rock Springs but offered to come my way for their engagement session. I always suggest we do something for the engagement session that reflects the couple’s interests. It just so happens RaeLynn and Damien have connections that allowed us to get on the UW field (alas, before the new turf). Those of you who know me, know what a big Cowboys fan I am. I jumped at the opportunity. We started at the Union for a few shots and moved to the field later on in the day. SO much fun. Thanks, RaeLynn and Damien. I had a blast with you! Can’t wait until August! Go Pokes!!”
This is AWESOME — and what a fun idea! Thanks again to Janelle Rose Photography of Cheyenne for sending this engagement spotlight our way — GO POKES!!!
