Micah and Tim tied the knot on Saturday August 15th. Black Hills Receptions was styled country chic with barn wood tables, lace runners and lace chair caps. Our champagne napkins added soft color and the rose hip garland with pearls popped the tables. Mercury glass candle holders with real candles completed the look and the reception tent had a warm glow. Micah and Tim chose a great look.
The groom and bridesmaids wore cowboy boots to go with the theme. The bridesmaids were dressed in blush pink dresses and each chose their own style dress. Letting bridesmaids choose their own dress style is a great way for your bridal party to show off their individual style yet be able to match the décor. The girls were all gifted gray rose necklaces that unified the look. Micah was stunning in her lace gown and long blonde hair in soft curls. She kept her jewelry simple with a necklace that matched the beading on her dress. The groomsmen looked sharp in gray tuxedos with fun purple paisley patterned ties. The purple and pink flowers in the bouquets and boutonnières tied the bridesmaids and groomsmen together.
Micah and Tim had a cocktail hour in the Grand Gazebo for their guests to enjoy while the couple took photos. We decorated the gazebo with pink Chinese lanterns and cocktail tables. A cocktail hour is a great idea if you plan on completing photos after the ceremony. Guests really enjoy having appetizers to snack on and cocktails to sip while the couple enjoy some alone time before the reception starts. It’s a fun way for guests to mingle and the couple doesn’t feel the need to rush the photos to get to their friends and family.
The photographer brought some new ideas and used nooks and crannies on the property that aren’t used often for photos. It’s great to see new visions and ideas from photographers. One shot that really stood out is our 18 ton sandstone boulder from outside the Calico Mines of Edgemont that was used as a background for Tim. The gray tuxedo with the purple tie and Tim’s model pose come together for a unique wedding portrait.
