Blake and Megan.
Adventurers, best friends, world-class trash-talkers.
The anticipation leading up to this event had AWESOMENESS written all over it. Maybe it was the diligence and attention to detail from being an accountant (Megan) or the abundant supply of rambunctious, animated gentleman who kept the energy high for 4 straight days (Blake) or perhaps the stars aligned for everyone at just the right time for this one special weekend, but I have never heard “that was the best weekend of my life” uttered so many times in reference to one event (and this wasn’t even the Bride and Groom talkin’).
THE TREE! Megan had difficulty pinning down exactly the way she wanted her invitations to look. But it was decidedly absent of….something. After sending me several proofs conjured up by the folks at fabulous Paisley Roberts, I started thinking about representations of the stunning McCall mountains where the ceremony would take place, along with all the wood accents being used throughout the table settings. I ended up superimposing a simple silhouette of a pine tree on the header of the invite…
Eureka! The missing link! Like any good branding campaign, the symbol of the tree was quickly incorporated into all wedding paraphernalia we could get our hands on and will forever serve as a symbol for ‘the best weekend of our lives’. What – Too far?
Cowboy boots, fresh-cut wood chargers, vast acres of secluded rolling hills with which to run wild, midnight pool parties, cloudless blue skies, home-made Cornhole gameboards, impromptu dance parties and bellies full of laughter with old friends. Now THAT’S a wedding.
And can you really call it a marriage ceremony if the entire bridal party doesn’t throw themselves into the pool at the end of the night? (Although Megan’s dress designer might be inclined to disagree.)
Special thanks to Two Bird Studios for stealthily capturing the most memorable frames throughout the weekend.
