Laramie’s Alibi Wood Fire Pizzaria & Bakery has been open & cranking out delicious food & live music events while undergoing an impressive renovation this year. Laramigoes have been heading to “the Alibi” for years for food, libation & frivolity — and we were thrilled to feature their catering in our Cheyenne & Laramie bridal expos in 2019! If you’ve got an event coming up, wedding or otherwise, give them a buzz at 307.745.9738, find them on Facebook, or visit their website. OR! Even better yet, when you’re in Laramie go grab a bite for yourself and see what the buzz is about — head to 404 S. 4th Street and save us a slice …
p.s. Congrats to the Alibi on being a 2019 local’s choice winner from The Laramie Boomerang!
Thanks to Dreaming Hollow Photography in Laramie for sending in this creative and fun engagement spotlight! For those of you familiar with Laramie, you’ll recognize our historic Train Depot on First Street in Downtown Laramie as part of these images. Here’s what Tessa had to say about Fawn & Glen…
“This couple requested one of our Fine Art stylized vintage sessions. We wanted a very romantic, dramatic 1940s feel. We enjoyed planning out the details together for the clothing, locations and the storyline!”

Thanks to Honey Bee Photography in Laramie for sending in this Native American-inspired bridal shoot…I love the drama and mystery of these images! The fog, the boats, the outfits…it just is so romantic and touching. Owner Faith Noel of Honey Bee worked with Poppy’s Flowers and Sweets: Special Occasion Cakes & Pastry, both of Laramie, to help create the look. When it comes to planning your signature ‘look’ for your wedding, your wedding vendors can be an awesome help. As you’ll read below in the quote from Faith, a stylized theme and look is very popular. You can find inspiration from guides, websites and blogs (like ours!), Pinterest, etc. — you’ll begin to realize what your style is as you save images that you love, then look back through them. Share your inspirational items with your vendors, and they can help you as well to find your unique style.
Here’s what Honey Bee’s owner & photographer, Faith Noel, had to say about this shoot: “Highly stylized weddings and engagements are a growing trend within the wedding industry. I have spent the last couple of months planning this Indie Native American stylized bridal shoot with the help of many amazing vendors in the area. The look we were going for was an epic romance.” (I think they hit the mark!)
Be sure to come visit our Laramie Bridal Expo: The Fall Edition to meet our amazing Laramie-area vendors! October 21, 1-4 PM at the UW HIlton Conference Center — FREE admission!
Thanks again to Honey Bee Photography in Laramie for sending in this beautiful shoot, as well as Poppy’s Flowers and Sweets: Special Occasion Cakes & Pastry, both of Laramie, for their amazing contributions as well! When it comes to a highly stylized wedding, and simply finding your ‘look,’ be sure to collect your inspirational items and share them with your vendors. They are there to help make your dreams come true! Honey Bee Photography & Poppy’s Flowers both have storefront locations in Historic Downtown Laramie!
Thanks to Stephanie of Wainscott Wedding Photography and David & Caroline for providing this week’s wedding spotlight! These two used their love of theater — a theme throughout their relationship — to create a wedding that truly represented them. They held their wedding at the Laramie Plains Civic Center — an icon of Laramie history. The building’s roots are in education, serving as Laramie’s city school in the late 1800’s and then moving to the Laramie High School, and later the Laramie Junior High School. The Junior High School moved to its current location in 1979, which shifted the Civic Center’s function to community office spaces and facility rentals. Today, the building is managed by a new group of enthusiastic leaders who are transforming the building, bringing back its historical significance and expanding its influence in the community. David is the Civic Center’s Theater Manager and he allows me to bug him regularly. 🙂 I was personally very excited to see a wedding being held at the historic theater — what a neat idea! To read about the Laramie Plains Civic Center and their transformation process, please visit our Wyoming Lifestyle Magazine’s website & read our fall 2011 issue online…click on ‘Current Issue’ or ‘Back Issues’ after December 2011… www.wyolifestyle.com. But enough blabbing about history (one of my favorite topics) — we’re here to talk about David & Caroline! I’ll let Caroline tell their story…
David proposed on a cold, snowy night in December 2010 while I had a miserable cold. I’d love to say it was romantic, but it really wasn’t. It was mainly because he was afraid he would lose the ring before Christmas, which was his original intention to propose then. It did help me feel a little better though, even with the cold. We set the date for September 10, 2011, mainly because I figured it would be harder to forget 9-10-11. Things all seemed to go right at first, things got done so quickly, my only sticking point was on a photographer since I was on a budget. Stephanie was out of Cheyenne, but agreed to drive over for the wedding, and even when they were moving she was still wonderful! We decided on the Civic Center Theatre for our wedding since we had a connection with Dave working there, but also because theatre has been a continuing theme throughout our lives. We met through theatre at Casper College and theatre brought him back to me after seven years without seeing each other. Wainscott Wedding Photography took beautiful pictures! It was a beautiful wedding and will be a day I always remember.
