We love the western elements infused throughout Kjersten + Alex’s Jackson Hole celebration.  The wooden cake stand, horseshoe placeholders and animal skin “gastbok” are fun and authentic without being at all hokey.  The Jackson Cake Company designed the bride + groom’s simply stunning confection, and Lily & Co. styled the understated blooms.  (Thumbs up for the handpicked look!)  Want to see more from Carrie Patterson?  Check out her blog post from K + A’s Wyoming wedding!

Describe your wedding flowers: Mostly white, big poofy shapes (peonies, dahlias, ranunculus) with turquoise ribbons on the bouquets. The centerpieces had grayish foliage, chocolate cosmo, and accents of red. Vases were barnwood, incorporating the rustic style.
Describe your wedding cake:
Classic, all white, with draping and flowers that matched my dress.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding?
We had a destination wedding, so finding all the vendors in one week’s time while on vacation in Jackson was a challenge. We had lots of meetings to go to and pricing to figure out in a short amount of time!
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day?
A big mountain storm came through right before our ceremony. After the rain stopped, the sun shone through and hit the Grand Teton behind us while we were saying our vows. It was magical.

    Incredible and with so many beautiful details to pull together for a destination wedding… great job. I adore Kjersten's hairstyle as well as the exquisite wedding cake and gorgeous bouquet!

Emily and I were just talking about how much we love grey dresses earlier, and after seeing Kjersten’s + Alex’s rustic Wyoming wedding at the Spring Creek Ranch, we’re pretty sure it’s going to be this season’s “IT” color!  Case in point: Kjersten’s slate grey bridesmaid dresses from Jenny Yoo.  The bride looked equally stunning next to her chic maids, opting for a feminine Judd Waddell gown, classic Cole Haan peep toes and an all-white bouquet from Lily & Co.  The uber-talented Carrie Patterson photographed K + A on their big day, and boy, did she have some incredible scenery to work with!  My favorite shot?  The bridal party lined up in front of a dramatic mountain backdrop.

Three adjectives that describe the day:  Magical, rustic yet modern, picturesque
Our favorite detail of the wedding was:
Horseshoes on each guests’ tablesetting for luck. They were hand-painted with our monogram and date/location on the back.
Tell us about finding your wedding dress:
The dress I ended up getting was the first one I ripped out of a wedding magazine. My mom flew in for one day, and I went to one of the designer’s (Judd Waddell) trunk shows. The dress was the first one I tried on! Judd Waddell was also there, and we found out he also happened to go to the same university/art school that I went to, Washington University in St. Louis School of Art & Design, and had the same professors! Then he even sketched me in the dress!
