A Rustic Western Wedding in Montana

Refined rustic. Western chic. Simply elegant. Joanna and Josh’s gorgeous wedding at the Mountain Sky Guest Ranch was all that and so much more. With help from the incredibly brilliant team at Lukas Trudeau Event Company, the day was one filled with sophisticated charm from the bride’s custom gown to the pheasant feather accents. From the groom’s custom Prada suit to the delicious dessert spread by the talented gals at Elle’s Belles Bakery. The sublime Montana fall weather to the equine guest appearance. Call it whatever quality comes to mind – this wedding is picture perfect.

A Rustic Destination Wedding in Tennessee

There are three things Michael and Carrie love more than anything in the world: nature and its animals, craft beer, and each other. So, it only made sense that their wedding should reflect these priorities in earnest, a goal which they achieved seamlessly on a warm summer day in the Tennessee mountains.

A Fun & Relaxed Colorado Mountain Wedding

Kimberly & Alex  |   June 26th   |   Vail, Colorado

From the bride: We wanted the wedding to feel fresh, fun, and personal to our style. We are outdoorsy, and I’m an elementary teacher, so we wanted little pops of fun and whimsy.

THE CEREMONY: The ceremony was outdoors against a gorgeous backdrop of Piney Lake and the Gore Mountain Range. It was a gorgeous, sunny day, and everything went beautifully! We were so lucky. We wrote our own vows, which we revealed to each other in the moment.

THE GUEST TABLES: Instead of table numbers, each table was named after a country we have traveled to together as a couple (Egypt, Israel, Germany, China, Austria, Thailand, Honduras, etc).

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT: We loved our private canoe ride on Piney Lake at sunset… amazing moment we’ll always cherish!

THE DANCING:  During the father-daughter dance to Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely,”  my dad pulled a harmonica out of his pocket during the instrumental break and played along.

 LATE-NIGHT SNACK: We loved roasting s’mores against an epic night sky of stars – no light pollution in the mountains!

MY ADVICE:  Have fun! And create a designated wedding email to separate your personal correspondence from your wedding-related correspondence – that’s step 1! Agree on a budget, talk about each of your non-negotiable hopes and dreams, and get a few big-ticket budget items taken care of early. Find little ways to make it personal – guests noticed and appreciated those little details, and they made the day feel special for us.
