A Rustic Outdoor Wedding at Custer State Park in Custer, South Dakota

After getting engaged on the beach during a candlelit dinner in Puerto Vallarta, to-be-weds Kaylora (26) and Justin Thiry (26) quickly began planning a June back in their home state of South Dakota. And since the pair knew an outdoor wedding was a must, they looked to the Game Lodge in Custer State Park to bring their rustic-meets-vintage vision to life. "After hearing nothing but great things about the lodge, we decided it was the perfect place to say 'I do'," Kaylora says. "It's such a beautiful space nestled in the Black Hills and it's surrounded by trees and a flowing creek. It's just amazing." A muted color palette of bush, ivory and gray paired perfectly with the couple's love of all things rustic—including painted DIY centerpieces and a twine-topped wedding cake. The wedding wasn't without plenty of wooden details and pastel bouquets, either. "We wanted our guests to experience the feeling of a 'fancy' wedding while still being able to relax," Kaylora says. In fact, right before their ceremony on the Lover's Leap Deck, Kaylora and Justin encouraged 180 guests to bring a drink to their seats to watch the couple wed. "We had a lot of people come up to us and say it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to!" Kaylora says.
