Boho Pins: The Best of Boho – Wedding Guest Book Ideas
Today I am looking at is wedding guests books, is this something you have considered...
Hello you lovely people and how are you all? I hope you are all well and happy and having a good week so far? Today I am taking you to Wyoming for this gorgeous outdoor summer wedding. It’s weddings like this that make me long for spring. Winter here in the UK seems to have dragged on forever! Spring feels like touching distance but it’s just not quite here yet! So hurry up Spring we need to feel some sunshine and warmth again! So back to this Garden Wedding in Wyoming. Mira and Aaron were married on 5th June 2021 in Wilson at The Bentwood Inn. They held a beautiful outdoor ceremony in the garden area, followed by a stunning outdoor reception in the same grounds. An understated wedding filled with the most gorgeous, natural decoration, perfect for this couple looking to keep the traditional elements of their wedding, while mixing in some new modern touches. Big thanks to Eastlyn & Joshua for the lovely photos.
We absolutely love how Mira & Aaron mixed traditional wedding things like a wedding party and bouquet toss, and made it personal by creating an intimate experience. Some fun personalization’s that really stood out to us: only three tables during the reception; pre-reading their vows during the first look; Mira’s dad officiating; having one “first dance” by having their parents dance alongside them; and joining the cocktail hour to spend more time with their guests. Mira & Aaron booked an adventure (engagement-style) session with us two days before their wedding within Grand Teton National Park, so that on the actual wedding day, they could spend less time on portraits and more time enjoying the company of their guests.
Mira and her family had previously stayed at the Bentwood Inn during vacation, and so they knew this was the perfect place to hold their wedding. They reserved the entire Bed & Breakfast for several days, so that Aaron, Mira, their families and friends could all enjoy some time in beautiful Wyoming leading up to the wedding day.
The front porch of the Inn is perfectly framed with a lush garden, and decorated with classic western furniture, wagon wheels and other unique antiques from the region. The creek bordering the edge of the property was flowing beautifully due to the recent snow melt, and a pleasant breeze moved the surrounding cottonwood trees like a song. The ceremony was set with the aisle leading up to the base of three of these trees. It was like they were grown here as a trio for this very moment—it was the perfect spot.
After a sweet first look between both Mira and Aaron, and then Mira and her dad, the group waited inside until it was time for vows. Mira & Aaron elected not to have a traditional wedding party, but their friends were still with them every moment of the day.
Before the first kiss, Mira’s dad (who she told us is her best friend) officiated the ceremony and another friend sang La Vie En Rose.
The reception was held in the Bentwood backyard under a beautiful white tent. Long tables from JH Mountaintop Rentals were decorated beautifully with floral arrangements by Dandelion Floral, and gorgeous place settings rented from XoWyo. Gather Events Co did an incredible job bringing this stylish couple’s vision to life. It was elegant with a bit of vintage and western whimsy. The cake was handcrafted by Mira’s mom (to avoid elevation issues, she actually packed the cake in her carry-on for her flight to Wyoming).
After emotional toasts by Mira’s dad, her best friends, and Aaron’s brother, we took Mira & Aaron back to the cottonwood trees for some evening portraits. When we were finished, we returned to their guests and the party started. The incredible Whiskey Mornin’ preformed live music ranging from covers of oldies to current hits, and everyone danced nonstop until the end. It was a day no one in attendance will ever forget.
Due to an email issue if you have emailed me between the 2nd & 9th of December, please resend it.
Awesome inspiration for the day. Thanks for sharing!
