Misti and Jason’s wedding was, simply, amazing! The weather worked in our favor for the day, so the ceremony was held across from the barn with haybales set up as seats (although family and friends spent a good part of the day scaring off the roaming cattle who kept sneaking in to get a taste). I was totally in awe of Misti literally creating her dream wedding to the very intricate details. When it became time for toasts, Misti’s Bridesmaids and friends dressed up in cute aprons and delivered red solo cups, on a platter, containing bubblies for everyone to enjoy!
Now, here’s from the Bride
Q: You planned EVERY detail of your wedding, describe how you turned your dream into reality.
A: We wanted an outdoor country kicking wedding but I still wanted a touch of vintage flare. We searched and searched for a venue with the perfect rustic feel that would allow good ole boot stomping country music till the wee hours of the morning. Mission accomplished, Lazy R Ranch was a true resemblance of Jason and I’s character and love for the outdoors. I collected most of the decor from vintage, antique and thrift stores with the help of my mom and aunt Jess. My husband, Jason and dear friend Rocco went to the woods and cut down my cocktail tables and center pieces from ponderosa and aspen tress. As I continued to collect perfect dollies, milk glass and lace table clothes the entire family became inspired. My dad even got out his sewing machine and helped me make the flag banners. Everything was hand picked and made with laughter and love. Music was also an important ingredient to a perfect night. Hank Swank and the Fun Hogs got the party started and The Moon Pies had the dance floor rocking. Honestly, I had no idea what I had created and seeing my vision come to life was magical.
Q: What was your favorite moment of your wedding day?
A: The rain disappearing moments before the ceremony, the sun embracing the day and Jason’s unforgettable vows witnessed by people that support,love and inspire us was a moment I will forever hold close to my heart.
Q: Do you have any additional words you would like to add?
A: I have to say beyond the tiny details, stunning flowers, rocking good music and delicious prime rib the family and friends that came from all over the country is what made the day truly magical. Jason and I are still in awe, blessed and thankful. Thanks to each and every one of you.
