Sidni's engagement ring. Yowza! It is a gorgeous square cut diamond flanked by smaller round diamonds with smooth edging. Lovely!
The bridesmaids looked lovely in golden cowboy boots.
Jay's preppy tie, navy striped and a little nautical in color, looked sharp next to the soft blues and golden tones from the rest of the florals.
While the guests milled around during cocktail hour, the kids entertained themselves with a very competitive round of "duck, duck, goose." The sunlight in their hair is magical.
I was so excited to see tulips paired with hydrangeas at the reception. Tulips are classy. Paired with the white linens and simple wooden chairs, the reception had the ambiance of the most elegant sunset picnic you'd ever attend.
Jay is a fan of hunting, fly-fishing, and their three dogs--so Sidni had the cake decorated with a very special cake topper with each of their three dogs. The chalk board around the first dog's neck with their wedding date is an inspired detail.
See more groom's cakes that we find amazing.
Sidni's dad gave a really sweet toast, and afterward, he surprised Sidni with a firework show. As you can see from her facial reaction, she was genuinely surprised, and even shed a few tears. It was really beautiful.
Sidni and Jay, thanks so much for having us to your wedding. We loved being a witness to your devotion to each other and to your creativity during the reception.
