Amber and Courtney threw tradition to the wind in their wedding at Wolf Feather Honey Farm and created a truly heartfelt celebration of love! They fully embraced the rustic setting and sprinkled southwestern vibes everywhere, from their wood and floral teepee backdrop and pampas grass ceremony decor to their canvas teepee lounge area filled with geometric textiles, pelts, and copper table accents. Luna Wild Design and Watersigne Floral went above and beyond in designing and curating every element, and Singler Photography captured it all in exquisite detail. Two of our favorite elements, by far, were the brides’ stylish and chic wedding day looks, which included a boho-inspired BHLDN dress and a navy blue suit with a whimsical lining and bowtie. They both looked sensational!

It was most important for us both to feel like the wedding was genuinely “us” and not what society tells us a wedding should be. We had no interest in outdated traditions or doing anything that didn’t celebrate us and our family of powerful women. Our mothers walked us down the aisle, officiating was a collaborative effort of two of our best people, and we had the most influential women in our lives standing with us. We didn’t toss a bouquet or do a first dance, and we had the best time!
From Courtney: Our day was so magical. I think the moments that stick out to me as the most memorable are the tiny moments we shared privately surrounded by those we love. Walking down the aisle to our song, all I saw was her and our future. Reading our vows to one another and sneaking away during dinner for golden hour photos to look over the rolling hills and sun setting.
Honestly, we really left our ceremony up to our officiants. We chose two of our best people: Laura and Amber‘s sister, Ashley. They both worked double duty as bridesmaid/maid of honor and co-officiants. We trusted them completely, and I think that was really important for us. We wanted to be surprised and they really blew it out of the park. There were Prince lyrics, jokes, advice, and love. It was all just so… us.
From Amber: Communication is key! There are so many details that can potentially go into a wedding, so talking about our budget, our individual “dream” wedding, and finding compromise around all of it was an important challenge to face together. Don’t expect rainbows and unicorns 24/7 during the process. Be willing to budge on some things and hold your ground on others. Everyone deserves a piece of their dream wedding, and it will all be worth it in the end.
The Singlers were one of our most positive vendor experiences. We were able to spend real time getting to know them at our engagement shoot, and likewise, them getting to know us. They really honed in on all of our idiosyncrasies, making the wedding day a breeze. When we weren’t interacting directly, it was like they weren’t even there. They melted into the background and captured so many amazing, natural moments. They are the kind of people you keep as friends and that’s really special. We can’t wait to use them for our next celebration!
