As a couple that loves the outdoors, Anna and Alex knew they wanted an wedding with a scenic backdrop and natural elements. The venue gave the outdoor affair a rustic feel, while white and slate blue details made the nuptials elegant and refined.

The simple, white invitations had a subtle outline of the Grand Teton mountains. The design was carried throughout the wedding stationery.
Anna wanted a dress that felt appropriate for the outdoor affair, so se chose a lace A-line dress by Vera Wang. She also wore her sister’s wedding veil as her “something borrowed.”
For the cocktail hour and reception, Anna wore a pair of brown cowboy boots so she could easily walk around the grounds and dance.
The bride’s natural bouquet was made of ivory roses, snapdragons and clematis with lush greenery.
The three bridesmaids carried bouquets of ranunculus, snapdragons and roses that closely matched the bride’s flowers.
The bride and her attendants chose long chiffon dresses in a slate blue hue that would work well in the outdoor setting. The bridesmaids also wore pearl necklaces and nude shoes.
“As a surprise, my mom and wedding planner arranged for a vintage silver Airstream trailer for the bridesmaids, flower girls and me to wait in prior to the ceremony,” Anna says.
Alex created custom ties for himself and his groomsmen. He chose a slate blue front with a 1940s-inspired yellow and blue floral print on the back.
The simple programs were designed to match the invitation suite. A mesh bow on the top finished the look.
Anna and Alex wanted all of their 10 nieces and nephews involved in the wedding, so they had three flower girls, who all carried ribbon wands down the aisle.
The couple created an altar out of a rustic wooden table, which they topped with vases of white delphiniums and clematis.
For the ceremony, guests sat on wooden benches, where they had a stunning view of the Grand Teton mountains.
The newlyweds exited their ceremony a Mozart composition. A string quartet played a selection of classical music before and during the service.
The reception was a 10-minute walk from the ceremony site, so the guitarist and fiddler from the band led guests down the path in a roving cocktail hour.
Guests’ names were painted onto stones, which were used as escort cards for the reception.
A slate and white damask tablecloth with classic white china and monogrammed napkins gave the reception tables a timeless, elegant look.
Each table number was held by silver or gold magnetic holder shaped like various animals.
The bride and groom chose wooden chairs to achieve a rustic style, and decorated their two chairs with natural green garlands.
“Our four-tier wedding cake was decorated with hand-painted sugar Dogwood flowers, the state flower of our home state of Virginia,” Anna says.
The couple made their getaway in a hunter green vintage pickup truck, which pulled empty cans of a local microbrew.
