A simple halter dress with a low-cut back, a straight skirt, and a sweep train was a fitting choice for the Western-themed wedding because of its laid-back look.

Amy used some cedar wood she had on hand to make signs that directed guests to parking lots. She wrote “weddin’” instead of “wedding” to fit the country vibe.

The couple was married outside on a peninsula surrounded by a small lake. They exchanged traditional vows beneath a gazebo and kept the decor to a minimum to let the natural scenery shine.

Instead of a traditional cake topper, Amy and Nick chose a couple on horseback holding hands. Fresh-cut daises at the base brought in the natural theme.

Amy & Nick in Ottawa Lake, MI

Amy and Nick met through their best friends, who happened to be brother and sister. After dating for about three years, they decided to get married. Bonus: They already had a diamond -- Amy’s grandmother’s -- so they just had to shop for a setting. The Bride Amy Bedell, 27, real estate manager The Groom Nick Wahl, 30,a mason The Date August 16 Two days before Christmas, Nick got down on one knee in Amy’s living room to give her the ring and officially ask her to marry him. In no rush to plan a wedding, they had a two-and-a-half-year-long engagement. Amy and Nick grew up in Ottawa Lake, so it seemed natural to have their outdoor wedding near family and friends. They both ride horses every weekend, so they decided on a Western theme—the guys wore cowboy hats and the cake topper was a couple on horseback-.
