A Rustic Chic Mountain Wedding in Washington

Nicole & Darek  |  July 11th  |  Leavenworth, Washington

Nicole began planning her wedding day from the moment her and Darek got engaged. An adventurous, free-spirited, fun-loving couple, these two put an incredible amount of care and thought into each personalized detail from their wedding. From the beautiful hand-dyed napkins to the naked cake made by one of Darek’s very talented groomsmen, these two had everything covered for the perfect wedding celebration. The evening was filled with signature cocktails made with simple syrup infused by the groom, lawn games, and dancing under the stars.

A Scottish Party in the Mountains

Gretchen & Duncan  |  September 6th  |  Steamboat Springs, Colorado

From the bride: We wanted a Colorado casual, welcoming and fun wedding day!  Our inspiration came from the groom’s Scottish roots and the wedding locations.

The weather was somehow perfectly glorious, like that moment with the sun rays in the beginning of the Lion King movie.

Everything about the day was personal. We deconstructed the traditional ceremony entirely and made our own. It felt very personal without being mushy. We wrote our vows together and said the same ones. I liked that because it felt traditional but personalized to us.

My favorite DIY detail from the wedding were the gold antler table settings and chandelier. The groom’s parents scored a huge lot of antlers in auction in Missouri and I spent many happy afternoons lovingly spray painting them gold. Everyone was skeptical but they looked AMAZING. We split them among the family after the wedding and they make great decorations at Christmas.

Looking back, we’ve never experienced anything like our wedding day—it is a cliché because it’s true. It was a day long adrenaline rush fueled by the biggest out pouring of love we’ve ever experienced. It rocked.

My advice: Hire a day-of wedding planner and have a clear budget.

A Spring Wedding in Montana

Anna & Tom  |  June 6th  |  Pray, Montana

From the photographer, Lauren Brown Photography:
Ask around about the secret to a long and happy marriage and you are sure to get a colorful variety of answers and advice. But there is one piece of solid marriage wisdom that in incredibly common, and that is, “be friends with your spouse.” Anna and Tom will have no problem with this. In fact, the story goes that they were friends first – they were introduced in college, at a time when Anna was determined to focus on her studies and not be distracted by dating. So the two remained “just friends,” establishing a solid base of companionship and compatibility long before things took a turn towards the romantic.The wedding of these two friends was beautiful. This year the spring in Montana was a wet one, with rain and grey skies for weeks on end. But the rain stopped and the clouds parted just in time to give Anna and Tom an absolutely gorgeous wedding day!
