About the Wedding
Nick and Shandi were introduced by Shandi’s best friend and maid of honor Amy Johnston back in 2013. They hit it off instantly, started dating, and were engaged in May of 2015. The bride and groom are very outdoorsy, and wanted their wedding to reflect their love of the outdoors. So naturally, they decided on an outdoor ceremony overlooking the Medicine Bow-Routt National forest, located in the Wyoming Rockies near the Colorado border.
The couple incorporated a rustic, antique feel into the coral and mint decorations (mostly DIY by Shandi), and the groom handmade the gorgeous wooden alter and arch by himself. The bridal party got dressed and ready at the Jack Creek Crew Headquarters near the ceremony location, and Reverend Martin Temme (who had also married the bride’s parents) married the couple in front of their closest friends and family.
