Keith Turbitt of Keith Turbitt’s Shutter-Vision in Cheyenne had a beyond fabulous suggestion for helping to streamline your wedding expo experience:  labels!  While at the Cheyenne Bridal Expo last Sunday, Keith noticed a few brides had created labels with their name, their fiance’s name, their wedding date and contact info (phone number, email, etc.).  Instead of rewriting this over and over…and over and over…at the expo, they simply stuck on a label on the form at each vendor’s table and kept on moving. Brilliant!

Thanks to Keith Turbitt’s Shutter-Vision in Cheyenne for sharing! Just had to add one of Keith’s beautiful shots below…be sure to check out his website and contact him for more info on your Wyoming wedding, no matter where it is — Keith does amazing work!

WEDDING SPOTLIGHT: Caitie & Grant’s Beautiful Ivinson Wedding

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

Thanks to Keith Turbitt’s Shutter-Vision Photography in Cheyenne for providing us with this week’s spotlight! Caitie & Grant were married August 4 in Laramie, at the beautiful and historic Ivinson Mansion. I used to work as a docent at the mansion in junior high, leading tours of people from all over the globe and sharing our fascinating Laramie history. The home was built in 1890 as the planned Governor’s Mansion for then candidate Edward Ivinson, a prominent businessman and leader in the Laramie community. While his bid was unsuccessful, the gorgeous mansion remained and he and his wife Jane spent many years in the beautiful home.  The home became a girls’ school and served various capacities for decades after the deaths of Jane and Edward, and an enthusiastic committee saved the home from becoming another relic of the past back almost 40 years ago.  Today, the beautiful museum is not only a place of Laramie history and pride, but also a gorgeous location for breathtaking weddings!

Enough for the history lesson. My apologies — the history geek in me surfaced yet again. 🙂 Keith said this was a beautiful day, filled with lots of energy and fun people — and I think these photos prove it! CONGRATS to Caitie & Grant, and thanks to Keith for sharing this beautiful day with us — I love these images!

I love this sweet shot from Katie Lynn Photography


This shot from Keith Turbitt’s Shutter-Vision made me gasp, literally…

I love the light in this image from Alissa Ferullo Photography — it just radiates off the happy light coming from this couple’s features…


I love the unique things that Beartooth Photography does — these are very cool perspectives!


Check out this super slick image from Katy Gray Photography...I love this idea…


Just a few of the things that we’ve seen and loved lately…what do you love? Post on our Facebook page — we’d love to see what makes your heart skip a beat!

INSPIRATION: What Do You LOVE?

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

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 _____. Post on our Facebook wall, or leave us a Tweet (@wyoweddings), and say “I LOVE…” then fill in the blank, and if you have a photo to stick along with it, the better! We’d love to see an example of what you love!

Here are a few things we love…

WE LOVE…being an individual…

MEET OUR VENDORS: Keith Turbitt’s Shutter-Vision of Cheyenne!

Every week we shine a spotlight on one of our fabulous Wyoming vendors — this week we want to give a shout out to our AWESOME friends in Cheyenne.  Keith Turbitt is an amazing photographer, and his wife Erin is a super-talented graphic designer.  Together they form the creative team of Wyoming Lifestyle Magazine and Wyoming Weddings, and we couldn’t appreciate them more.  BUT, today we’re taking a look at what they do aside from their work with us — photography!

From real estate to weddings, baby, senior, family and maternity portraits, Keith covers a little bit of everything.  His artistic vision is astounding, and he puts his all into his work.  When you work with Keith, you get a special attention to detail — one of the things we love about working with him!  His detail shots are my favorite:  whether it’s an element of the decor, or that special little happy smile he captures when someone’s not looking…the true beauty of the day shines through.

Check out Keith’s work here and on his website:  www.shutter-vision.com — and be sure to find him on Facebook!

 

Visit Keith’s website and experience his vision for yourself!  Be sure to visit our vendor directory to find Keith and other fabulous Wyoming wedding vendors!  And be sure to add your engagement announcement by the end of May — we’ll be drawing a couple from our engagement list to receive a pair of Wyoming Weddings ‘Mr.’ & ‘Mrs.’ or ‘Bride’ & ‘Groom’ bucking bronc travel bags! (They also make a fabulous wedding or shower gift!) Click here to see the ‘Bride’ or ‘Mrs.’ bag, and here to see the ‘Groom’ or ‘Mr.’ bag!  Click here to add your engagement announcement!

 

‘Til Next Time…We’re Excited to be Wyoming’s Home Grown Wedding Resource, ALWAYS made in Wyoming and all about helping YOU!
