A Wild, Wild Western Wedding

Credits, clockwise from top left: gown (Brides magazine), church (Martha Stewart Weddings), boots (Style Me Pretty), table setting (Brides), junior cowboys (Snippet & Ink), mechanical bull (Snippet & Ink), tablescape (Martha Stewart Weddings), horseshoe placecards (Brides), hats and bandanas (Snippet & Ink)
And the inspiration was the really cute western themed invites from Hello, Lucky!

We've had a few really fun Texas couples over the past few years so we thought we'd do a Western/Texan-inspired board. The thought of warm, open fields and cutting loose at a festive outdoor reception is so appealing. And what, I ask you, could be a better ice-breaker at a reception than mechanical bull riding?

I've never been a Wild West type of girl but my favorite yoga teacher from Georgetown Yoga, Margaret Burns Vapp, moved to Montana a few years ago and opened Big Sky Yoga, which is a yoga retreat/ranch/ski resort. She even runs retreats than mix horseback riding and yoga--how fun is that? Ever since I heard about it, I've had a bee in my bonnet about going. Her motto is, "Put a little yee-haw in your Namaste." Love that!

So for everyone like us who is really ready for the winter to be over and who want a little more yee-haw in their lives, enjoy!
