Inspiration - Peacock

I stumbled across this portrait and fell in love with it. It is my inspiration for this peacock themed wedding board. Brilliant teals, rich purples, and vibrant greens are obvious color choices here, but I love the idea of adding in some metallic gold. Enjoy!

And here is a fun fact! Did you know that the peacock is actually a male peafowl? The female is a peahen. How adorable is that? Maybe this is common knowledge to most, but it was new to me! Hope you enjoyed my favorite images for a peafowl inspired wedding :)

Wilderness Ridge Spring Bridal Expo

Wilderness Ridge's bi-annual Bridal Expo was held on April 13th, 2014. We invited all of our favorite local vendors to do what they do best, make our facility shine! Each banquet room was filled with stunning displays of their products and services. It was an extravagant event inspiring brides for their upcoming special day, including our own Wilderness Ridge brides and grooms who receive admission for free. We even had a live fashion shoot, showing what a magical wedding can look like when our vendors work together to create a vision!

The following images are from this springs bridal expo, and just a sample of what you can see this upcoming fall, when we host our next bridal event! Are you a bride to be? Expecting an engagement? If so, this is something you shouldn't miss!

Yellowstone Ballroom

Big Horn Room

The Big Horn room is located across from the Yellowstone Ballroom. This is typically the room where we serve our gourmet wedding buffets. For this event we featured some of our most popular items on the wedding menu.

Flathead Room

The Flathead Room is also located across the way from the ballroom. It features a fireplace and private deck for guests to enjoy in nice weather, a very popular room for bridal showers and cocktail/appetizer receptions. On this particular day we featured one of Wilderness Ridges new additions to the wedding menu, the Dessert Buffet! Our dessert buffets can be coordinated to match your color theme, as shown here to go with the table decor. Our pastry chefs created an array of sweets in purples and creams, including lavender flavored macaroons, tarts, cakes and much more!

Bitterroot Room 

The Bitterroot Room is located upstairs and is the next largest banquet room we offer. It is perfect for smaller wedding ceremonies and receptions, but can be used for a variety of celebrations.

The Loft

The Loft is upstairs and overlooks the Grill Tavern. It is a great space for cocktail and appetizer receptions, or can be used along with the Bitterroot room as an additional space for your guests to enjoy. On this day we featured a spa as well as a photo booth!

Each bride received a complimentary Wilderness Ridge tote bag full of information from our vendors, including a copy of Nebraska Wedding Day magazine. With almost 200 guests for this event it was a big success and I can only imagine what is in store for the next Wilderness Ridge Bridal Expo coming this fall!
