“All the bridesmaids wearing the identical, solid color dress is less common as couples opt for more personal wedding party attire,” says Lindsey Nickel, a wedding planner at Lovely Day Events. “Couples are really embracing making the wedding feel like their own wedding and personalizing as much as possible. This is one of my favorite wedding trends because it allows people to pick a dress that flatters their figure and that they would realistically wear again.”Read More

“One of my favorite cost-saving tips is to up-cycle items from previous weddings,” said Nickel. “Start browsing early on sites like Facebook Marketplace. Accent furniture, tabletop decor and cute details can quickly add up. Couples can check out local online communities to find on-trend deals near them on unique pieces for their wedding, such as a funky table for their escort cards, vintage chairs for a lounge or boho rugs for an aisle runner.”Read More
Picking a location that has meaning to both you and your spouse-to-be will help provide inspiration for your planning and design. “Maybe that means the mountain town where you went for your first ski trip together, or wine country because you both love Merlot,” suggests Lindsey Nickel, Owner of Lovely Day Events. Being able to share a place that you both love with your friends and family will create extra meaning and a unique experience.Read More

Tanya & Richie’s fall western inspired wedding was low-key elegant with hints of their love of down-home aesthetics. This day was all about family from the family-style buffet dinner to them inviting three couples in different stages of married life (5 years, 38 years, and 56 years) to do readings where they shared their thoughts and advice on marriage, you can tell this amazing day was more about the people who surrounded Tanya and Richie and not just about them. They also beautifully brought the fall season indoors with the gorgeous floral arrangements including the bouquet, blush ballgown, and feathered shawl that Tanya wore. The Four Seasons Resort & Residences Jackson Hole made for the perfect backdrop to this extraordinary event and I am so happy to have been a part of it all.

The brides family home was the perfect location for their laid-back, but ultra-romantic day in muted green tones. One of our favorite details? The reception! Which featured a huge family style table set between two vineyards + bistro lights above. ~ Wedding Chicks, Ashley

Loreley & DJ's spring wedding was gorgeous from start to finish. The soft hued whites, creams, and pinks were classic and elegant while the huckleberry smoothies on offer were fun and unique. They blended rustic with romantic beautifully in both the alter, trays, and cake stand and let's not forget the stunning photographs in front of the barn. Moose Creek Ranch & Magnolia Ranch were the perfect locations to make their dream wedding into a reality and we are thrilled to have been a part of such a lovely day.
