Angela & Andrew

After meeting at Thanksgiving through Angela’s half-brother, Angela and Andrew talked all night and well into the morning. “It was love at first sight,” Angela said. “We had so many similar interests – we both loved outdoor adventures and country music. We were perfect for each other!”

Angela and Andrew’s wedding was full of sunshine, blue skies, and waterfalls. “It was the perfect day to get married,” Angela said. “I was the luckiest woman alive.” The couple said “I do” in an outdoor ceremony that overlooked a canyon and cascading rapids. Surrounded by greenery and filtered light and wearing a gorgeous gown from Kathryn’s Bridal, Angela walked down the wooden stairs of a tiered deck that lead towards the falls rather than an aisle.

The newlyweds’ rustic reception at Grand Bear Lodge was the perfect follow up to their woodland ceremony. Personalized wooden crates, wild flowers, and a grey and peach color palette helped capture the free and natural vibe that inspired Angela and Andrew’s celebration. “We asked our guests to dress casually so that everyone could enjoy the celebration,” the couple said. “It truly was perfect.”
