Vanessa & Josh enjoyed a fun-filled day in the snow, captured by David Huber Photography in Worland. On June 16, 2012, they tied the knot in another beautiful day that was filled with fun! I love the images Huber captured — I can tell that this couple loves to have a great time with each other, their family and friends…check it out!

Thanks to Shane of Photography from the Hart in Lander for sending us this spotlight! I love what Shane had to say about Chelsie & Matt’s wedding…

Chelsie and Matt were married at the Museum of American West, in Lander on June 30th, 2012.  It was a fun filled wedding full of memories — including a special, handmade Damascus steel wedding ring for Matt, hand beaded moccasins for Chelsie and her bridesmaid, to Grandpa’s old Ford that they drove away in.

See below for a photo of Matt touching Chelsie’s face…I love the caption Shane put with that one…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From Shane:  When it came to this moment, Matt commented later that he knew at that exact moment that he was the luckiest man in the universe… (To which I had to grab the closest Kleenex! Too sweet!)

Thanks to Ardent Photography in Laramie for providing this week’s wedding spotlight!  Kelley & Matt were married January 21, 2012 at the Nagle Warren Mansion (for the ceremony) and the Community House in Cheyenne (for the reception).

Check out these tidbits from the wedding from Ardent:  “Awesome to know: He hand made her ring, like even casted the silver after making the wax mold and everything! They had the most darling hot cocoa favors oh and did you see her vintage shoes? To die for… He had a bridesman on his side, they had a very emotional and touching ceremony. The sister of the bride created all the floral arrangements too!”

WEDDING SPOTLIGHT: Erika & Nathan’s Sweetwater County Wedding

LINK BACK TO OUR WEBSITE:  www.wyoweddings.com

Nathan & Erika’s wedding on September 10, 2011 (9-10-11!) was held at two great Sweetwater County locations — the ceremony took place at Expedition Island in Green River, with the reception at the Sweetwater Events Complex in Rock Springs.  Their photography was captured by the amazing David Huber of Worland.  Erika has some great bits to share from the day and check out their images — REALLY cool ideas, especially the Cold Stone buffet for dessert! (LOVE that!)

Erika’s memories of the day…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ice Cream Bar:  We aren’t really ‘cake’ people and while at a bridal show in SLC, I discovered Cold Stone’s catering options.  Once back in Rock Springs, I proposed the same possibility at our local branch.  We worked with the store manager to create our own serving options at the reception.  The reviews from our guests were glowing!  Everyone loved creating their own ice cream dessert using our favorites 🙂  especially the kids.

One of my favorite memories: We planned to do a fun dancing entrance into the reception with our line.  After the rehearsal dinner, we did a practice run with music at the hall and the idea didn’t go over well.  However, when we arrived to the reception hall after the ceremony, everyone was in their places and Nathan and I were able to watch them enter into the hall to the dance floor.  It was FANTASTIC!  The kids started it off with a lot of excitement and each pair that followed had their own choreographed routine created in less than 24 hours.  The guests loved it and it was a wonderful way to jump start the party.  A vision I will never forget.

Another item I will never forget are the poms!  It took a large group effort to make all of the 160 colorful tissue paper poms that covered the reception ceiling.  Two days of folding, cutting and prepping the colorful design with family members.  Then an entire day of ‘poofing’ and hanging the poms around the hall with our great groomsmen and bridesmen.  We were all sick of them by the time we were done, but it was worth it to have my vision come true!  Now the poms are a running joke among our friends and family.

Our ceremony at Expedition Island was set up by the men of the wedding party – groomsmen, bridesmen, fathers and the groom.  I gave them the pieces and they designed it all and turned out beautifully!  Even better than I had imagined.

WEDDING SPOTLIGHT: Caitie & Grant’s Beautiful Ivinson Wedding

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!

COLOR INSPIRATION: RED by Abbydell!

OUR SISTER PUBS:  Wyoming Lifestyle Magazine:  www.wyolifestyle.com Wyovore:  www.wyovore.com

Thanks to Abbydell Photography in Jackson for providing our color inspiration — RED!  Red is such a bold and emotion-evoking color. It can stand alone, it can pop against neutrals such as white (or my always favorite neutral, chocolate brown), but it can also look sweet with pink, fiery with orange, powerful with blue and white, dramatic and romantic with black… Red just looks you in the face and challenges you not to feel emotion with it. So do you take the challenge? Do you take on RED and all that it can do for you?  Abby says YES!!! And here’s her dose of RED inspiration for us…thanks Abby!


Thanks to Abbydell Photography in Jackson for this fun look at RED! Have a bit of RED inspiration that you’d like to share? We’d love to see it! OR, if another hue is your favorite, send us some pics — we love to be inspired! Send images to editor@wyolifestyle.com (remember those all-important credits!) or post on our Facebook page — we’d love to share how YOU dream in color!

Here’s what Ashley had to say about Katie & Brian’s Big Day…and be sure to check out these amazing images!


With the bride from Cheyenne and the groom from Helena, Katie really wanted to have a beautiful wedding in her home state and the couple chose Jackson Hole as their destination!  On August 6th, Katie and Brian said their own vows in an intimate wedding ceremony before the Tetons at Open Meadows Ranch in Wilson.

Katie and Brian also met up with me the following day for an extended portrait session both in casual wear and wedding clothes!  We had a great time shooting at my favorite spots to get a different view of the mountains, while giving the couple beautiful photos that they can treasure for a lifetime!

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.
