From the bride... Zach and I were married in Wolf, Wyoming, and were fortunate enough to have the ceremony take place on my parent’s front lawn overlooking the gorgeous Bighorn Mountains!  I didn’t have a set color scheme like most weddings I have been to. Instead, I tried to keep things classic, fun and not overly matchy. The groom and groomsmen’s bow ties were each different colored stripes, which looked wonderful with their blue blazers. I wanted the bridesmaid dresses to be simple without being plain; I accomplished this by having them wear different dresses in the same champagne color. The details were so much fun to put together!   The main pattern element that linked the wedding ceremony to the reception was black and white stripes. At the ceremony, black and white ribbon was wrapped around all the bouquets, and at the reception, black and white stripes showed up in our table cloths. To make sure that the black and white didn’t look too formal, we incorporated flowers in vibrant pops of yellow and pink roses, white Queen Ann’s Lace, bright green kermits, dark green ivy and yellow Billy Bobs. Other fun details included my grandmother's blue brooch on the back of my dress, which made the dress very personal and added a vintage touch. The table numbers were classy as well. The image was one my brother did specially for the occasion. The place cards were paper birds and butterflies. Edible paper butterflies adorned our six different cakes as well. Having multiple cakes instead of the traditional one gave us an opportunity to do something different, and they looked so pretty on their cake stands of different heights! In a word our wedding day was quite simply, perfection. The combination of fun patterns, bright colors and the backdrop of the Bighorn Mountains in all their splendor made for an unforgettable occasion!
