Classic Wyoming Ranch Wedding :: Cydney & Bennett

carrie_patterson-001

Just wait until you see this classic Wyoming ranch wedding – it’s definitely got us dreaming of the great outdoors. From bride Cydney’s Monique Lhuillier gown, accompanied by her beloved cowboy boots, to her bridesmaids outfitted in grass green, to the dapper groom’s gingham shirt and three-piece suit, to the florals in a chic, natural palette of white-on-green, every element of this wedding suits this sweet pair perfectly, and reflects their beyond stunning mountain hideaway.

Cydney chose these pointe-shoe inspired, suede Christian Louboutin pumps to take her down the aisle, sensibly saving her cowboy boots to relax in later!

The bridesmaids and junior maids wore J. Crew dresses in different shades of green, tying in perfectly with the palette inspired by the gorgeous natural surrounds.

We love this groom’s sense of style.  A three-piece suit is a great alternative to a tux, and the chocolate brown tie is a nice nod to their overall palette.

The Ceremony

With a backdrop like that, who needs decorations?  This pair chose antlers and two simple, large floral arrangements to anchor their ceremony space, which had plenty of impact without taking anything away from that view.

Having friends and family light candles in the ceremony was a lovely, meaningful way to include them. Plus, hanging the candles off the antlers is such a fun idea!

The couple, along with their bridal party, disappeared off into the woods for portraits after the ceremony.

The couple’s antler-themed monogram personalized various aspects of the day, from the escort cards, to these green linen napkins, to paper cocktail napkins from the bar.

Arranging lush white florals in wooden cubes and moss in candle holders keeps the table decor fresh and light, and also grounded in their rustic venue.

Using rough-hewn wood on the tables keeps adult guests happy with more of those gorgeous florals, and smaller guests busy with cute stacks of crayons.

Cydney and Bennett’s three-tier cake is perfectly on-theme: iced to resemble logs, piped in fresh butter cream and decorated with white florals, olive leaves and miniature pine cones. They also enjoyed a dessert bar complete with fresh berry pies.
