Real Wedding: Kelsey and Buck's DIY Crested Butte Wedding

I am super excited to be sharing the wedding of Kelsey and Buck today (Kelsey is the sister of photographer Stone Crandall), not only because it was gorgeously awesome, but also because Kelsey used the free downloadable escort card/favor tags that Cambria Evans of J.Bartyn and I collaborated on for my site! Stone and I had no idea until he sent me over the pictures and I noticed them. It's the first time I've seen a real bride use something of mine, and I must say it is one of the coolest feelings ever - so thanks so much Kelsey! I'm glad you liked them :)

From photographer Stone Crandall: "Kelsey and Buck were married at The Lazy F Bar Ranch in Crested Butte, Colorado. This shoot was really special to me because Kelsey is my sister and Buck is just straight up awesome. Kelsey and Buck chose not to hire a photographer (to my protest) and I was a groomsman so you'll notice there are no ceremony shots and the mind blowing dance moves are not represented. BUT what we did decide to do was take a bit of time just after the ceremony for my wife Shel and I to shoot some memorable portraits. The rest of the night we retired the camera and went into full time eat and dance mode. Pretty much everything at this wedding was DIY. My Aunt Judy made all of the bridesmaids bouquets, Kelsey made the groomsman's corsages, and my mom sewed all of the napkins at the tables."

Kelsey's hair flower, the clutch, and ring bearers pillow all came from the talented duo at EmersonMade.

Post ceremony, guests found their way to their dinner seats by searching for the names on individualized Jones Soda's (with pics from their e-session), Izze's, and original Coca-Cola - the escort tags are from a Marry You Me exclusive free download :)
"The entire Crandall family are suckers for sweets, so instead of going for a formal wedding cake Kelsey opted for an irresistible candy bar filled with her favorite treats. My mom made her famous chocolate birthday cake, Shelby (my wife) baked up hundreds of incredible cake balls (some on a stick some not), there were also jars of skittles, as well as candy raspberries."

Congrats to Kelsey and Buck and thanks a million to Stone Crandall for sending these over for me to share! Check out his blog for even more pictures.
