The absolutely lovely Nicole Wickens, owner of Green Door Photography, posted us a little package full of photos, and we’re so excited to share them with you on our Real Weddings page. Tiffany and Jared’s simple, natural wedding is, among other things, on our short list for best ever dance parties. This smart, adventurous couple wanted to maximize their time with family and friends, who were all traveling to Montana from across the country, so we worked with them to plan a full weekend’s worth of activities.
We enlisted the floral design genius of Habitat Floral Studio for Tiffany’s wild bouquet and Jared’s rustic boutonniere. The super-talented Mike Murray played personalized acoustic renditions of some of the couple’s favorite songs, like Patty Griffin’s Heavenly Day and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ Home, during the ceremony. Tim Good of The Cuisine Machine customized a menu to the bride and groom’s farm-to-table tastes.
During the cocktail hour, the bartenders hand-crafted mojitos (the bride’s favorite) and Manhattans (the groom’s favorite), and guests played lawn games in the grass. Tiffany and Jared gave each of their guests a Frisbee to take home as a favor. We created custom wood signs, table numbers and cornhole boards to complement the natural feel of the decor.
Guests ate a family-style dinner around long wood tables. We sourced locally-crafted gelato (Tiffany & Jared’s fave), which the couple’s friends scooped into striped gelato cups for each guest. And then the sun went down and the dance floor lit up. (I mean, really lit up.)

Our mailbox has been absolutely overflowing with stunning photos of our 2013 weddings, and we have been busy sifting through them all to build our brand-spanking-new real weddings galleries. Visit our freshly-minted Real Weddings page to see the addition of Sarah + Phil’s sweet vintage wedding, which was recently featured on The Wedding Chicks (sneak peek below). And then check back often, as we’ll be posting more to-die-for 2013 galleries in the coming weeks. Also: a gigantic thanks to all of our photographer-friends for the pretty pieces of mail you’ve been sending us!

Hand-lettering, in my opinion, makes everything lovelier. So I was thrilled when our friends at Habitat Events asked me to design a couple custom hand-lettered signs for one of their weddings this summer. The lovely Nicole of Green Door Photography has just shared these photos of the signs, finished and ready for the celebration: a chalkboard menu for the couple’s rehearsal dinner and a vintage mirror bar menu for the reception.
Contact us if hand-lettered details are on your must-have wedding list! We’d love to discuss your ideas.
We are so grateful to have worked with such incredible couples and creative vendors in 2013, and can’t wait to celebrate with so many more fun, stylish and in-love brides and grooms in 2014!
Happy New Year from the Glacier Park Weddings team.
