This wedding will always be extremely special to me because it’s the first wedding day I ever professionally coordinated. Besides being genuinely kind, Dixie was an extremely hands on bride, DIYing almost everything for her elegantly vintage themed wedding. That lady has some serious talent and an amazing eye for detail! And I have to tell you, the fact that this wedding was held in Yellowstone National Park makes it one of my favorite weddings ever.
It was a typical rainy May day, but that didn’t damper the spirits of the day.
The ceremony was held at the historic Mammoth Chapel in front of the couple’s closest friends and family.
One of my favorite moments of the day was the ring exchange between Chuck and Dixie’s son. It was so beautiful to watch them all honor their vows and truly come together as a family.
After the ceremony, everyone made the short trek down the road to the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel, where the reception was held in the historic Map Room. The hotel provided full catering (a delicious Italian buffet!) and bartending services, but for desserts, Dixie had cakes brought from Bozeman, and they were displayed alongside a beautiful croquembouche .
Joe’s Mobile DJ services provided the music that kept everyone dancing the night away (and helped Chuck to serenade Dixie with a super sweet surprise karaoke performance)
So, here are some of my favorite detail shots from the day, taken by my amazing photographer pal, Missy Short Photography. Enjoy!
