This wedding from Green Wedding Shoes, is just spectacular! I think the thing I love the most is how open everything is. This is such a perfect example of how a clear tent can still be used, and yet you still feel like you are outside.
So here we go with the finale of the pictures! Time for the party, the food and flowers! When Morgan and I talked about what she wanted the party to feel and look like, she explained that she wanted it to be like a really fun cocktail party. And she wanted the crisp look of white flowers, white tablecloths, and white furniture. So that is what we gave her. Lets just start with the food, Judith McQueen did a fantastic job with it. The plan was not to have a sit down dinner, but to have the night be filled with very heavy appetizers. So people got more then enough to eat and drink, but also go to be way more social.
Next up the setting. The entire wedding and reception was held on an empty lot, that was owned by Morgan’s dad. Lots of green grass and right on a big pond. It was a perfect setting to have a clear tent. And when you have a clear tent it is always fun to hang things in it, and that is just what my staff and I did. You can see the hanging paper lanterns and then when it got dark, we also hung almost 200 votive candles too.
And last but not least the party and the people. I loved this guest list, mainly because it was filled with some of my very favorite brides and grooms from past years, it was pretty special. In addition, my favorite band Marmalade Hill played, and we were lucky enough to have a special guest appearance from the world famous Dano and the Nobodies (a Ketchum favorite). The guests danced the night away at when all the festivities ended they headed north to Whiskey’s, to continue the fun.
I am sure that by the sheer amount of posts I have done on this wedding, you can tell how much I enjoyed this one. Morgan and Bray I thank you both so much, and I can’t wait to tell you the behind the scenes stories! And I can’t wait to meet that new little baby boy, as soon as you come to visit!!! Last but not least, thank you Hillary for all of the great pictures of this wedding and all of our weddings.
Well you saw the rehearsal dinner yesterday, today were going with the wedding party, and tomorrow the party. So first and foremost we have to start with the dress. Morgan wore my favorite Vera Wang of all time. And she look amazing in it! As for the boys, they all looked so handsome in Collared Greens ties, and all of the girls were stunning in J Crew dresses. Hillary Maybery captured all of these details perfectly. But the best part of this entire wedding party, is that they are the most fun group of people ever!!
The wedding of Jennifer and Eric was a very beautiful family affair. The two of them were married surrounded by an intimate group of family and friends, in Eric’s parents back yard. They were not only surrounded by their family and friends, but also by their own little family, of their puppy dogs Henry and Speedy. Everything was so beautiful, and even though the weather was a little iffy, the rain held off and made for some amazing photographs. The wedding was photographed by the talented Thia Konig, and catered by, my always favorite, caterer, Judith McQueen.
After the ceremony, everyone made their way around the pond, and into the house pasture were the dinner tents we set up. The ever resourceful Judith McQueen managed to create a multi course masterpiece of a dinner, by cooking out of the horse barn. Complete with two horses looking on.
Eric and Jennifer, thank you so much for putting all of your trust in me to plan your wedding and design all of your decor and flowers. You both were so wonderful to work with!
With the feel of fall in the air, two weeks ago I was lucky enough to plan the wedding of Jack and Colleen. I not only do I thoroughly enjoy this couple, but I love their families too. In fact Jack’s father Lou performed the ceremony, and it was one of the best ceremonies I have ever heard. And believe me I have heard a lot of them! The wedding and the reception took place North of Ketchum in Lake Creek, with the ceremony overlooking a big pond and the reception in a horse pasture, it was such a beautiful setting. Once again Hillary Maybery took the most gorgeous photos, take a look…..
Thank you Collen and jack for allowing me and my girls to be a part of your big day. I really loved working with both of you, and of course enjoyed your emails Colleen, they always made me laugh!
I gave you all a sneak peak of this wedding a couple weeks ago, my good friends Ross and Carolyn got married in Carolyn’s parents back yard. I was lucky enough to be one of the bridesmaids. The extremely talented Kirsten Shultz, photographed the wedding. The following pictures are more of the wedding party, but details will follow soon. Enjoy……
Yes, in Ketchum Coors Light is essential to any wedding. It is the unofficial drink of the town!
I love, love, love this wedding from Snippet & Ink. It is so simple and elegant, and it makes me wish we didn’t always have to use tents here in Ketchum. The large farm tables and the hanging chandeliers, are just the best!
Once again I had a fantastic wedding this past weekend. The weather was perfect, the location was spectacular, and the bride and groom were so much fun. I really enjoyed this wedding because we got to do a few things that I rarely get to do. Mainly we used the clear tent, which always looks cool in the mountains and we got to do fun free form arrangements in mason jars. Katie really wanted a wild flower feel and one that matched the landscaping of her mother’s home.
The wedding took place at the Z Heart Ranch, the property owned by Katie’s parents. Ck’s Restaurant catered and as always the food was out of this world.
The party was great fun, the guests danced all night to the best band ever Marmalade Hill. Hillary Maybery, the talented photographer caught all of the great fun on film. And how cool is this clear tent??
As I mentioned, I was in a wedding this weekend, of my good friends Carolyn and Ross. The amazing photographer Kirstin Shultz shot the wedding, and as soon as I have her photos in hand I will get them up here. But just a quick look here of all of us bridal party.
The location of this wedding was so spectacular, I just have to share it before I get any of the actual wedding pictures from Hillary Maybery. Lucky I have a great photographer on my staff, Amy. She got some fantastic shots of the flowers and the Ranch. The wedding was held WAY out a canyon here in Ketchum, at Pioneer Moon Ranch, this ranch was formally owned by actor Steve McQueen. The pictures say it all….
