Destination Wedding: Elizabeth and Patrick, Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Elizabeth and Patrick's Mountain Wedding
When Elizabeth and Patrick met after being set up on a coffee date, it was the first and last blind date either of them would ever go on—but for a good reason! The pair had instant chemistry, and on March 16, 2013—two-and-a-half years after their romance began—they tied the knot at the Four Seasons in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Their intimate wedding weekend combined Old World elegance and rustic warmth, with the snow-capped Teton Mountains as the backdrop.
The couple's invitations were engraved in black and embellished with a gold rim.
The Bride's Blooms
The bride finished off her look with green Gucci heels—her "something new."
Patrick's grandmother was unable to travel to the wedding. As a way to incorporate her into the couple's big day, Elizabeth had her name embroidered inside her dress as her "something blue."
The 'maids carried ivory bouquets made of calla lilies, ranunculus, and dusty miller.
Patrick asked his two brothers to be his groomsmen.
Ceremony floral arrangements included bold ranunculus and roses mixed with berries and foliage.
Each ceremony program was printed, bound, and tasseled for a one-of-a-kind look. The front cover displayed Elizabeth's family crest. On the back cover was the groom's family crest, a nod to the bride's new married status.
The couple recited their vows in a traditional service at St. John's Episcopal Church. Elizabeth's best friend and Patrick's sister gave the readings.
The bride and her mother selected a variety of fonts and designs from Western Illuminated Manuscripts as inspiration for the escort cards, as well as the menu.
A Cozy Tablescape
Floral centerpieces were warmed up by gold candelabras and votive candles.
On the Menu
Menus atop golden chargers listed the evening's fare: mesquite-smoked beef tenderloin with bacon lyonnaise potato and truffle mushroom sauce.
The First Dance
The pair shared their first dance to "Stand by Me" by Ben E. King.
Father of the Bride Cake
Since Elizabeth's father loves chocolate so much, the couple also served a double chocolate "father of the bride" cake with chocolate bark and leaf details.
