My other passion is planning weddings and events. Say Howdy to contact me for more information.
Creative direction & wedding brought to life with a single photograph, loved by bride, by Korean artist Jung Lee from his Neon Type Installations in Nature collection. The idea was to take the image "I Love you with All My Heart" and change the lettering to the meaningful theme, "Love Grows Wild", a song by musician Dierks Bentley. The goal was to be married in front of the letters (designed by NoysToise), at the precise time the sky turned the perfect blue at dusk, where the bright red lettering would glow into the hearts of guests in a high desert landscape. Soon after vows, the guests would provide prayer for the love of the couple, and then fill the deep blue sky with biodegradable wish lanterns, with one the color red to represent the wishes of the bride & groom. Other details of the ceremony included ring bearers and flower girls who ran through the sagebrush in top hats (because children would rather run than walk), live acoustic music by The Parson Red Heads, and lanterns carried to illuminate the wedding party. The bridesmaids dresses were inspired by the Sirens scene in a favorite movie, O Brother Where Art Thou, carrying bouquets of dead wildflowers (love for the Rolling Stones) and the men's outfits carried an eclectic 1930's theme similar. The bar staffed with booze thanks to the idea for ea guest to bring one bottle of whiskey or wine, with a menu inspired by Old West Slang with drinks options such as The Snakebite and The Boilermaker, and a belly-warming meal of pot roast & potatoes. Hair & Makeup by Face Body Beauty, the bride wore a low-budget, Candela gown that was great for winter and with boots to dance through the sagebrush. Close-to-hear themes such as gold & glitter, Ships, and tiny constellation, diamond mountain range wedding rings by Silverado, Bend. A beautiful alter to greet guests created by The Butterfly Kaleidoscope with a yearbook style guestbook of bride & groom. Guests had the option to warm themselves by a bonfire (lit by bride via flaming bow & arrow) or take a picture on the giant paper moon designed by artist Gigi Murphy. Guests camped out to stay for a biscuits & gravy breakfast, some stayed in vintage trailers gathered to paint the scene.
