We are over the moon excited to be featuring one of our favorite weddings at Brush Creek Ranch today! Hampton + Michael first met on a blind date that his friends set up for him, while they were both living in London. The two instantly hit it off and five years later, Michael proposed to her in a gondola filled to the brim with gorgeous flowers in Sun Valley. To this day Hampton + Michael wait to get on the same gondola chair that he proposed in whenever they’re in town!
Hampton + Michael had always dreamt of an intimate destination wedding where their loved ones from near and far would gather to celebrate and they both fell in love with Brush Creek Ranch in Wyoming for its glamorous western chic appeal. Over the course of the weekend, guests enjoyed a variety of fun activities such as horseback riding, archery, fishing, and more as well as a Western themed welcome party where they took turns riding the mechanical bull, an elegant candlelit rehearsal dinner in the wine cellar, and of course a beyond beautiful and memorable wedding day!
Bold colors danced through the bride + groom’s wedding day, with the ceremony + reception dripping in lilac and dusty blue florals with pops of pamplemousse and buttercup citrus tones and greenery created by The Perfect Petal. Florals kissed the aisle as Hampton walked towards Michael arm in arm with her father to the tune of “Conversations in the Dark” by John Legend, a true vision in her Ines Di Santo gown with a gorgeous cathedral length train and veil that fluttered behind her as she floated across the aisle.
After they said I do, the darling newlyweds led everyone to cocktail hour and then reception in the Cheyenne Club. Guests found their seats with custom shot glasses hand calligraphed by CCR Calligraphy, and so the party began! Warm wood tables were adorned with cream lace chargers, the sweetest vintage floral dinner plates, and a color burst garden of florals! All indulged in the delicious multi-course meal and the peaches and cream wildflower wedding cake!
Hampton + Michael got the party started with their first dance to “You Make My Dreams” by Hall & Oates. “My favorite part of the reception was when everyone started grabbing these purple wildflowers from the arrangements around the stage and there was a sea of purple-puffed flowers in the air and the entire room felt like magic thanks to my wedding planner, Spice, who had what felt like hundreds of these flowers for our guests to hold!”
As the reception neared the end, the bride + groom ran through a tunnel of sparklers and hopped into their vintage, electric blue Ford pick-up truck to make their way to their after party where they danced the night away! Be sure to take a peek at all the magic below from Hampton + Michael’s wedding at Brush Creek Ranch!
