Shelby and John’s wedding weekend was truly one of a kind. All weekend long, friends and family poured over Shelby and John with kind words and the sweetest sentiments – a testament both to their love and the community they’ve cultivated.


The lively weekend festivities began at The Farm at Brush Creek Ranch where the duo welcomed their friends and family for a night of community, laughter, love (plus a little bit of rain – but you know what they say about rain, right?!). With the Wyoming sun beaming over the groom’s family ranch, their wedding day was filled with countless moments of sweet, intentional and personal touches (our favorite). A few standouts included beautiful artwork illustrated by the bride’s mother, stunning paper goods created by the bride herself and, of course, some very important pups (VIP) in attendance.

Embracing and drawing on the quintessential sunny season, guests were treated to tent full of bright pops of orange and blue, embellished by natural textures, pops of citrus and a canopy of lanterns covering the dance floor. With libations in hand & bellies full of a delicious dinner, the room was treated to another round of heartwarming  toasts – including the groom’s tender and eloquent tribute to his bride, his family and special time in Wyoming. Teary eyes were dried just in time to hit the dance floor powered by the iconic Elan Artists – with a party goers dancing until the wee hours of the morning.

Thank you to the wonderful vendor team who helped this dreamy day come to life:
