“It all began six years ago in a technical writing class at the University of Wyoming. Who would have guessed that two strangers sitting across the computer table from each other would fall in love and plan on forever!”

After photographing their love during a dreamy sunset engagement session, I was eager to capture Anna and Robert’s wedding day at the Ivinson Mansion in Laramie, Wyoming. The couple made their lifelong vows on the lawn of the stunning historic mansion in front of those most dear to them. With vividly colorful bouquets, rustic centerpieces, and a lively party atmosphere, no detail of their wedding day was spared. I decided I had to share their advice to other couples planning a wedding. Here is what they had to say:

“Wish for good weather. It pays off”

Between the wind, blazing sun, and early snows, weather in Wyoming can be unpredictable, to say the least. Anna and Robert decided to take their chances and plan for an outdoor ceremony. Luckily their wishes came true, and they were blessed with gorgeous weather. If they had not been so lucky, the Ivinson Mansion has options for an indoor ceremony space. A perfect plan B!

“The best part of our wedding day was having all of the people who mean so much to us together in one place!”

Being surrounded by all of your loved ones, from near and far, on your wedding day is a surreal feeling. The Event Center and East Lawn of the Ivinson Mansion can accommodate over 250 people, and was the perfect choice to allow Anna and Robert’s family and friends to celebrate in one place. 

“Try not to get caught up in the little details. The big picture is marrying your best friend surrounded by all the people that have supported and impacted your lives.” 

This is something every bride and groom needs to hear. It is all too easy to get wrapped up in the little details. Take time to find vendors that you trust; they will take care of many details for you! Be sure to check out the vendors at the end of this post. These incredible teams made Anna and Robert’s wedding day vision into a reality.
