    kwelsh1:  The mountains around Laramie are great--St. Alban's chapel is in the Snowies, but there aren't many seats.  I wanted to have my reception at the Alice Hardy Stevens Center (at the Ivinson Mansion), but there's no A/C, which my mom with MS just can't do.  But it's so pretty, I love it!

    PetraStoneGirl:  I love Laramie, too!  We're a rare bunch, I think. ;)

    If ya'll can't tell by my sig, I'm a UW grad, too.  Despite our not-so-great sports teams, I'm proud to be one!  I'm surprised at all the Laramie folk--from the posts, everyone seems to be either in or interested in Jackson Hole.  Glad to find some gals nearby.

    Hey great idea!

    My answers are as follows:-

    1) Where are you from/do you live now?

    I am from Scotland in the UK and I still like there...um here!

    2) Where are you getting married?

    I am hoping to get married in Jackson Hole in Wyoming. My fiance lives there and it is such a special place, I would love to tie the knot there. this might prove a little problematic with all my family and friends being based 5000 miles away...so we will see :)

    3) When are you getting married?

    No plans as yet...late spring or summer 11/12 possible

    4) Favorite place in Wyoming?

    Hard hard hard... too hard to choose! I love Teton park and Yellowstone park, Moose, Jenny Lake blah blah the list goes on and on. I have not really been to many places in Wyoming...the Pinedale area is about the furthest south I have explored so far.

    5)  What is yours and your fiance's first name?

    Jeff & Gillian :)

    Nice to meet you all x

    Hello all,

    We too are eloping to Wyoming next summer.  I'm having an impossible time finding a florist in either Saratoga or Laramie.  Everyone's sites are just the generic FTD bouquets.  I just want a few small bouquets for me and my sisters and some bouts for Travis and his brother.  Very natural/wild...I'm just too nervous to count on picking them myself the day of.  Any recommendations are appreciated!

    Katie

    1) Where are you from/do you live now?
    Indianapolis

    2) Where are you getting married?
    ranch outside Saratoga, WY

    3) When are you getting married?
    7/7/11

    4) Favorite place in Wyoming?
    Tetons

    5)  What is yours and your fiance's first name?

    Katie- As for Laramie, don't worry if the florist's website is FTD generic. That's just their bread-n-butter business. Call and ask for the manager. I am sure that they can do special/different arrangements for you, especially if you can email back and forth with the manager, including pictures of your inspirations.

    Katie--A gal in my lab is using Killian's florist--they had some really creative ideas.  You can also look at Fresh Flower Fantasy's facebook page to see their wedding work.   That was her first choice, but her fiancee seems to have something personal against the owner.

    Hey girls! Thank you both!  Have fun in the next two weeks PetraStonegirl.  Jessie, love you pics.  We are thinking about using the same photog.  Did he charge much to come up from CO?
  • edited December 2011
    katiebeth--Thanks!  He actually didn't charge to come to Cheyenne.  He mentioned to us he usually only charges for travel if it's really far, like Jackson Hole.  I highly recommend Brian--he's great to work with and really makes sure the shot looks just right.  And he knows what he's doing, for sure.

    Hi gals! I've been married for a long time, but officiate weddings all over Wyoming. I have to say that the Snowy Range is my personal favorite (because it's close to where I live in Laramie!)
    @Jeffie, you might consider Albany Lodge in Albany for your reception. I'm pretty sure they have AC. It's not far from St. Alban's Chapel (take the Dinwiddie road from Centennial for a short-cut). I've officiated several ceremonies there, and the receptions have been set up very nicely (I don't stay for those, so I never know how they turn out, LOL).
