Whose with us when we say, Thank God it’s Monday? Back to our lovely pretty parade of fabulous weddings all week long. And boy do we have a doozy to start with. This stunning Idaho wedding, captured by the FAB Hillary Maybery, featuring purple ‘maids, beer guzzling groomsmen, and a stop-you-in-your-tracks beautiful bride was planned to perfection by one of our favorites, Taylor’d Events. Seriously, this party looks like it was one heck of a good time. Or should I say, two heck’s of a good time – because we don’t just have the wedding, we have the western-themed rehearsal dinner too! So grab your coffee and enjoy the ride – and don’t forget about Taylor’s blog for more!

Before we get to the main event, Hillary has sent over these lovely images from one of the coolest rehearsal dinners we’ve seen. Taylor’d Events was on hand for this party too, and can we just gush a little over the fantastic job she did? We had so much fun just living the event through Hillary’s photos, so we can just imagine the excitement of every guest at this party had to have been through the roof. Check it out yourself!

Don’t forget about the gallery for more of the rehearsal dinner! But now, on to the main event…

We wouldn’t want to stop the party short – so click here for the highlight of the day from Max Monohan!

We met in Sun Valley.  Bray was living there at the time and I had just returned from backpacking in Spain and was just home for Christmas.  One of my best friends was having a dinner party where Bray was cooking dinner.  We had never met before and Bray blew me away with his delicious Lobster bisque.  And the rest is history!

Bray surprised me by taking me on a seaplane ride to Port Ludlow, WA.  He didn’t tell me anything except to pack a weekend bag.  We stayed at Port Ludlow Resort and he proposed while having a picnic on the beach.  It was really romantic!

My favorite flowers are lavender and the combination of lavender flowers with green stems inspired the wedding colors. We knew that we wanted to have a big party!  So for us, the planning was easy.  We wanted a great band, lots of dancing, lots of alcohol and great food, and of course…all of our friends and family to be ther to celebrate with us!
