Los Angeles residents, Sarah & Tony, wanted to create a memorable 3-day wedding weekend at Brush Creek Ranch in Saratoga, Wyoming. Guests came from all over the U.S. and even Nigeria – where Tony’s family is from – to enjoy the great outdoors and celebrate the two. The couple wanted to pair decor elements with the beautiful surroundings of the ranch during the fall season. 

Dusty lavender, sage, wheat, and whites were incorporated into the floral designs, ceremony and reception decor. The ceremony took place inside with candle light, rustic wood pews and greens hanging from the light fixtures above. 

Guests got to enjoy cocktail hour on the deck of the main lodge witnessing the beautiful sunset and were welcomed into the grand tent for dinner and dancing.

Callie + Brad’s Love Story

Brad and I met in January of 2011, however, our actual first encounter is up for debate. Brad says we were introduced by our good friend at a concert at The Mangy Moose. I remember our first meeting being a couple weeks later after skiing one snowy Saturday. A friend and I had just finished skiing and were walking towards Nick Wilsons for a beer when I heard someone call my name. I turned around to see a very handsome bearded man walking towards me. He smiled familiarly, said hello and reminded me his name was Brad. I excitedly nodded and smiled back. He asked for my number and after he walked away my friend asked, “Who was that?” I laughed and said, “I have no idea.”

Brad called me a month later (nearly too long) and asked me on our first date, and because of the ever-changing facial hair of men in Jackson, I didn’t quite recognize him when he came to pick me up. That night we had one of the best times dancing at a friend’s birthday party in Jackson and knew this was something special. We immediately enjoyed doing all the things that come so easily to everyone in Jackson. We spent most of our time together skiing, biking, camping and floating the river. Over July 4th weekend 2015, the two of us hiked the Teton Crest trail.

The Teton Crest trail traverses throughout the Teton Mountains and is an absolutely stunning 40-mile trek. On our second day of backpacking which happened to be July 4th, we found ourselves at the Alaska Basin, a beautiful, peaceful, subalpine basin scattered with tons of little sparkling lakes, ponds, and boulders. It is a magical place. After a long, hot day of hiking, I went down to the water to take a dip and Brad said he would set up camp. As I was sunning myself on a big boulder next to the water, Brad quietly came up behind me and surprised me. I honestly thought he was trying to throw me in the lake. When I turned around he had dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him. I said yes!

We both grew up on the East Coast, but we knew instantly that we wanted to get married in Jackson so all our friends and family from back home could come see this beautiful place. Jackson is where we fell in love with each other and the place we now call home. All the adventures we experience together here make our relationship and love stronger. When you are out in the mountains challenging yourself and pushing your limits, it gives you a deep sense of trust and admiration for the place and people around you.

Rustic, Romantic Wedding for these High School Sweethearts

Some things are meant to be and the story of these high school sweethearts is a perfect example. When it looked like rain was coming, the sun came out and shined down on their big day so they danced and laughed and loved all night long and Moonstone Pictures got it all on film. And don’t miss the true little love bird that followed along on all the day’s moments… doesn’t get cuter than that!

From the Bride… Just about a decade after meeting Mekki, I walked down a rose petal-laden aisle to an acoustic guitar to become his wife in an incredibly beautiful, special, and loving ceremony in our new home town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Flanked by our closest friends and family, with the beautiful Teton Mountains engulfed in fog in the background, the rain paused, clouds parted, and the sun shone as I walked arm-in-arm with my beloved father to meet my soon-to-be husband and we said our vows. It was the only time the sun came out that day! I had a Cindarella moment as a precious little bird followed me down the aisle and stayed with us the length of the ceremony, and even hopped over to be part of our pictures! During our reception we sipped spicy blood orange margaritas, dined on delicious short ribs, listened to the most thoughtful speeches, and danced the night away to the most incredible wedding band I have ever heard. I don’t think there was one person sitting down once the party got started, and I most certainly ruined my hair and makeup! From the miraculous change in weather, to the overwhelming love expressed and felt by everybody present, our day was nothing short of magical and the most fun, special way for us to begin our new chapter together as husband and wife.

From Moonstone PicturesJane and Mekki had been high school sweethearts, so there was an added specialness to the day as most of the guests had watched both of them grow up together. We were all prepared for rain and an indoor ceremony, but as often happens, the skies opened up just as guests arrived. With umbrellas ready, everyone stood for the ceremony, with the sun only beaming brighter, in the face of the Tetons at the beautiful Lost Creek Ranch.

Oh, and that bird!! You’ll see him in a couple of shots, but he actually was somehow part of the entire event, unexplainably connected to Jane and Mekki. He arrived just before start time, traveled up and down the aisle for the full ceremony, stayed close for pictures and even ventured into the tent for toasts and dancing. A true love bird!
