WEDDING SPOTLIGHT: Kali & Kord’s 4th of July Wedding

Thanks to Charity & Ricky  for sharing Kali & Kord’s beautiful 4th of July wedding in Cheyenne! Kali is a bride after my own <3, with LOTS of DIY elements in the flowers & American-inspired decor! The Big Day was held at Kali’s parents’ home, and a friend provided the cake & food. LOVE it – what a great way to celebrate a beautiful story…

I have to also share Kali’s story of Kord’s proposal… See if it gives you the response I had…

“We actually met at Kord’s brother Brandon’s wedding. Brandon married my best friend Sara, I was a bridesmaid and Kord was the best man. Kord’s proposal was soo funny! He had planned a romantic date at the Melting Pot, and as we were getting seated the host said, “So I hear we are here to celebrate an engagement!!!” Kord was furious because his surprise was ruined. I simply replied, “Well we are now!!” Both of us cracked up laughing. It ended up working out, because it took the stress of Kord and it was hilarious because nothing is very serious with us.” 

(And for those who will appreciate this last part, as I did … the Melting Pot did make up for the mistake by paying for their meal that night and giving the couple a healthy gift card…)

Check out these lovely details, patriotic decor & emotional images captured by Charity & Ricky

Thanks to Beartooth Photography of Casper for sharing this really magical wedding with us…

Check out these pictures and I bet you’re gonna agree, ‘magical’ is the word to describe John & Amber’s day… The two were married July 12, 2014 in Thermop, with lots of unique details (how the heck did they secure those china pieces to that sign?!) that are definitely magical. And I literally said ‘Wow’ out loud when I saw these pictures. VERY cool details. Congrats John & Amber, and thanks Beartooth Photography!

WEDDING SPOTLIGHT: Cyndi & Dave’s Red Butte Ranch Wedding

We’re so excited to spotlight this wedding from David Chilcott Photography in Sheridan! Cyndi & Dave were married August 31, 2013 at Red Butte Ranch near Casper. I love the deep plum of these dresses, the little splash of cowgirl, some adorable lanterns (what a great idea!) and a gorgeous sunset…

 

Downpour Wedding

Thanks to Tara of Blushing Crow Studio in Pinedale for sharing this beautiful – and soggy – wedding from Fort Williams Guest Ranch. While Shaunna & Riley’s September 14, 2013 event had a *little* water added, I LOVED the smiles, the laughs, the way that they carried on like this was exactly the plan…the perfect day that these two created with lots of personality. Congrats to these two – what a lovely example on the art of getting married and loving the day no matter what happens! (And I have to add – I believe it was a little ironic that fishing seemed to be a running theme…just sayin’…AND I want Shaunna’s shoes, and am in LOVE with her butterly bouquet. Just sayin’ that too.)

WEDDING SPOTLIGHT: Lisa & Kelly’s Black Hills Border Wedding

visit our website & find a WY vendor

Many of our Northeast Wyoming residents will attest to the beauty of Wyoming’s Black Hills, which also spread up into South Dakota… and many residents of both states journey back & forth across the border to enjoy that beauty. In that spirit, we’re excited to share Lisa & Kelly’s Black Hills wedding (held September 28, 2013) from Abbydell Photography — held ‘on the border,’ as Abbysays. Abby gives us the lowdown on the highlights from this beautiful day… “Fall wedding, perfect weather, ombre bridesmaid dresses, mason jars, candlelight reception with pumpkin pie & cider, blue stitching of initials on inside of bride’s dress and inside of groom’s tie for ‘something blue’…succulents & berries in the bouquet, parting gift of honey from a local beehive… LOTS of personal touches throughout the wedding day.”

I agree, this is fabulous!

Thanks again to Abby of Abbydell Photography for sharing this beautiful, WY + SD wedding day. Congrats to Kelly & Lisa, and much luck to you on your new journey! I bet it will be filled with many personal touches, just like your wedding day…

 

COLOR INSPIRATION: Sage (without returning to 1999)

visit our website & find a WY vendor

Taking a look at a popular late 90’s/early 00’s color that can be beautiful…without feeling like a bad retro trip! That color is sage green — I was in two weddings where this was the predominant color at that time, and saw MANY weddings with this color come through the flower shop I worked at in college. It became one of the top wedding colors, and still is a beautiful choice – but how to make it seem classy and not a bad throw back to 13 years ago? The big thing about colors in the 90’s and early 00’s was the use of saturated color — one main color with the secondary color being more of a small accent. For example, sage green dresses, perfectly matched shoes, ribbons, tux elements, etc. Switch it up – pick another strong color that can come through in heavy doses, balancing out the sage green and making it feel like a team player rather than a sole performer. For example, a deep purple paired with sage gives a feeling of richness which suggests elegance. This can pair perfectly to give weight to an outdoor Wyoming summer wedding, *or* utilize it with doses of gold or silver for a dropdead gorgeous winter wedding palette! Another color is coral — this makes sage green become fun and flirty. Perfect with a cocktail length coral dress for an outdoor summer wedding, or a spring wedding to bring a brightness to the room. You can also pair sage green with silver for an instantly cool feel – would be beautiful with long-sleeved gowns, white Christmas lights or candlelight to bring back an element of warmth, and a modern design to your decor. Tres chic, and so versatile!

I’m a Better Homes & Gardens addict, and their paint feature on green this month touched on this. They advised that pairing sage green with a crisp white makes it feel preppy & beachy; pair it with an ivory (and perhaps even switch to a deeper hue of green) to lend depth and elegance and create the feeling of a Southern manor home. Think ivory roses with deep green leaves & stems… Lovely again for a winter wedding, or a beautiful candlelight event.

Below are some inspiration points we’ve scoured from here and there to inspire you. Don’t be afraid of ‘outdated’ colors – think of new ways to use them, and you’ll never be accused of pulling a Marty McFly move at your wedding!

WEDDING SPOTLIGHT: Pat & Rebeka

visit our website & find a WY vendor!

Thanks to our friend Lacee Sims of Leather-n-Lace Photography in Evanston for sharing this spotlight with us! Here’s what Lacee has to say about this sweet couple…

“Pat & Rebeka met in 2011 at their mutual place of employment and sparks flew but not good ones! It was definitely not love at first sight, but Pat was sweet & persistent and finally won Beka’s heart over. After two years of dating they were married at the Purple Sage Golf Course in Evanston, Wyoming on August 31, 2013. They will continue to make their home here in Evanston. It was a beautiful storm cloud-filled day & the wind/rain that this end of the state needed so badly held out until after the ceremony & photography. A special thanks to my photographer friend Tammy for shooting second on this wedding.”

Thanks again to Lacee Sims of Leather-n-Lace Photography in Evanston for sharing this spotlight! Pat & Rebeka, my husband & I started out with bad sparks flying too – and we’re over 22 years together now! Don’t worry, it only helps to make everything stronger – the arguments better, LOL – and the makeup twice as sweet! Best of luck to you both!
