Modern Muse Wedding Inspiration

Casper, Wyoming

Last April, I was asked by Liz of Last Best Weddings to photograph her 7 page spread for the 2016 issue of Rocky Mountain Bride Wyoming. Liz and her incredible vision put this incredible wedding inspiration together in a modern art gallery in Casper, Wyoming. The Haven boasts beautiful art work of all kinds, from western to modern, and could easily be dressed to fit any couples style. 

Liz chose a mix of industrial + feminine elements to create what RMB later described as a 'modern muse'. The style combined materials of all kinds: elegant chairs with gold metal accents, wood tops and wool seats (I know, but they're amazing), dark wood head tables littered with amber and olive tinted glass and expertly paired with amber & ivory roses and floral. Rose colored silk graced the tables and bouquets to add the feminine element. 

All the way to the custom invitations and place cards, the calligraphy of Cast Calligraphy is to die for! A canary yellow envelope paired with a green ink is sure to stand out in your mailbox. Set it next to the handcrafted watercolor floral painted onto the invitations + place cards, and you're gold. 

Along with her gorgeous bouquet of amber + ivory floral, the bride wore a green floral crown atop simple flowy curls. Her wedding dress was a simple + elegant lace halter top with a floral pattern, dressed up with amber orange statement earrings with large jewels. Her groom wore a a narrow navy tie to compliment his navy dress pants and light grey jacket. The greenery of his bouttoneirre expertly stood out against the light color of the jacket. 

You can pick up your issue of Rocky Mountain Bride Wyoming on stands now! (Or a Safeway near you, which is where I grabbed mine). An incredibly talented group of Wyoming wedding vendors helped bring Liz's wedding inspiration to life! A huge thank you to Erica & Taylor for helping out on shoot day + for their lovely publishing. Thank you, Liz, for letting me be apart of such an incredible vision. And of course, thank you to these wonderful (if wonderful describes it) vendors:
