The turquoise color and rust of this antique wagon made it one of Kristen’s favorite details -- when she found it, she knew she had to incorporate it into her wedding. The couple used it to gather presents they received on their wedding day.

Kristen and Scott at the Wildflower Weddings, Red Lodge

Kristen and Scott admit that it was love at first sight. At a cattle branding, they just kept catching each other’s eye. They talked and from then on out, they just knew they were meant to be together. The Bride Kristen Jorgenson, 27 The Groom Scott Arnold, 32, cowboy The Date September 26, 2009 Kristen’s family had a cabin at the Red Lodge when she was growing up, and she felt the location was a second home to her. She wanted to have her wedding at a place with landscaped grounds: a waterfall, flowers and a pond, all of which she loved. They went with a country western theme for their fall wedding.
