Kevin is from San Antonio and I from Michigan, but we wanted our guests to see the beauty of Wyoming and understand why we chose to live here. Mountains and hiking are very important to both of us, so naturally we decided to be married in the snowy mountain range. We wanted our wedding saturated in details that told mine and Kevinâ€™s story, as well as give our guests a glimpse of the state. Our meal was Paleo driven with Wyoming flare, serving only fresh vibrant salads, fruit and grass-fed Bison. Details and design for our day was rugged-elegance with hints of inspiration from Fantastic Mr. Fox. We have a great love for foxes and all Wes Anderson films, so it was quite easy to incorporate in our wedding. DIY details could be found everywhere: Our cake topper of his and her fox was made by my wonderful and dear friend Diane, gold-glitzed apples with place names, star thistle honey wedding favors, handmade forest animal masks for our entrance to the reception, homemade lavender earl grey truffles, berry cheesecakes, and sugar glitzed champagne glass were all made to reflect our style and taste. Although all of the details and styling of the day were very important to Kevin and I, the ceremony was the highlight and reason for the entire day. A very close friend and elder of our church married us. We chose to share our vows to each other privately, and to this day it is one of our most cherished moments.
