A Brinton Wedding in Burgundy

These lovebirds planned a Wyoming destination wedding at The Brinton Museum from their home in Texas. Through a series of emails and calls, we planned the perfect florals to go along with the romantic and fun vision for their wedding day. With burgundy dahlias, a September staple, pops of peach and accented with blue, their flowers fit the bill. Their day was perfectly captured by Ft. Collins Photographer, Dyann Diercks.

The Brinton is a personal favorite for local venues. From the old farm house with expansive lawns, beautiful gardens and towering mature trees (a favorite for outdoor ceremonies) to the clean modern lines inside the museum and sweeping vistas of prairie and the Big Horn Mountains near the tent- it has a bit of everything.

Carly and Ben shared a sweet first look on the lawn before the ceremony. This is always a personal favorite and his reaction to the first glimpse of his bride is priceless.

Their friends and family traveled from far and wide to celebrate with them here in Sheridan. I think we’d all agree life is better surrounded by those we love and sharing big moments together is even better.

For their reception, I helped them plan and coordinate some DIY centerpieces. They picked a varied set of amber bud vases and bottles to use alongside votive candles. I provided the flower planning, tools and a few instructions and they made some stunning and simple centerpieces. This is a fantastic option for flower enthusiast with a large guest list and moderate budget who have a few helping hands to put it all together.

No post would be complete without a few shots of the bouquet in all it’s glory. I was so thankful for full creative freedom to use the best of the season and make something just for her. This one featured dahlias, peach roses (Shimmer), blue thistle, ranunculus, foxglove and mixed eucalyptus.

Creating with Friends

From my first email conversation with Molly from For the West and Wild I knew she was something special. Together we planned a simple styled shoot to showcase what we both love about Wyoming and the soft light of winter. Inspired by her turquoise collection and a vintage Pendleton jacket that belong to my grandmother we pulled together two looks for the ladies from CM Modeling to wear.

I choose two coordinating color palettes - the first full of soft, buttery yellows and lots of textural elements like artichokes, ferns, the softest ranunculus and James Storie Orchids.


The second was loaded with rich tones in red and burgundy with blackberries, chrysanthemums and spray roses.
