Wow, was Katie & Dave's wedding in Jackson Hole, Wyoming ever a whirlwind! From the rehearsal dinner to our below zero day after session, it was a nonstop eye-boggling experience!

First of all, even if Jackson Hole was not one of the most beautiful places in the world for a wedding, Katie is a girl who loves details. So as you might expect, the whole weekend was absolutely full of her special touches, with a cowboy theme carried through the events. Of course she hit the perfect balance of slightly campy for the rehearsal and unquestionably elegant for the wedding.

Katie's mother in law, Claudia, took over the lion's share of the plans for the rehearsal, and she went all out! Seriously, this rehearsal had more details and special touches than most weddings I've been to, and having met Claudia, I know it was a labor of love.

The signs that Katie had created were absolutely amazing! I love how this one is accented with haybales and sunflowers:

The location couldn't have been better--it looks like a campsite but is actually a four star BBQ joint:

There were firepits and flowers in mason jars! The firepits were the perfect spot for guests to enjoy custom smores treats late in the evening:

The tables were decorated and absolutely adorable:

What evening would be complete without a bluegrass band?

And a square dance! And this square dance lady--she's legit :)
