GUYS, I fell head over heels for this location AND this incredible couple. Kate & Josh choose to hold their wedding at Esterbrook chapel outside of Douglas, Wyoming. With gorgeous views of the Laramie Mountains, rolling green grass, wildflowers, and a beautiful historic chapel, this spot ticks all the boxes. Kate’s grandfather even helped build this chapel in 1946… so it’s a no brainer that Kate & Josh wed at this gorgeous and meaningful place.
Telling Kate & Josh’s incredible love story was a true honor and it started when we first met… at their engagement session!
They met on a dating website, she was drawn to him because his name had Yoda in it and she’s a bit of a Star Wars lover… SO send him a message in the typical Yoda voice, she did.
He responded and they chatted for hours. Soon enough the plan was on for their first date! She sent a riddle for him to find the location where she would be waiting…. and you better believe he solved it!
To say that first date went well would be an understatement. Coffee turned into lunch which turned into an entire evening laughing together and getting to know one another. It ended with the most beautiful sunset atop Washington Park’s hill, the one with all the blooming lilacs, and I guess you could say the rest was history.
Fast forward through many movie nights and cuddling, fishing on the weekends, and nights spent gaming and reading together, these two were ready to take their fairytale romance to the next level. Josh set up an intricate and elaborate scavenger hunt for Kate, sending her to all corners of the town searching for clues with riddles from all of their favorite movie characters hidden inside lockboxes. Gimli, Galadriel, and Belle.
The final clue led Kate to a romantic picnic where Josh was anxiously waiting to propose to his princess. Surrounded by family and friends with love and excitement felt by all, she said yes!
Kate & Josh,
Thank you again for allowing me to tell your love story. It was such an honor to celebrate with you two… friends, family, and ALL the love… I think you did it right! Sending you so much love and appreciation, ~Megan
