Mountain weddings are more popular than ever, and with good reason. Stunning scenery, fresh mountain air, and sweet down home details make for a day to remember. So when I saw Kate Bosworth gracing the cover of Martha Stewart Weddings I was intrigued. When I found out she had a mountain wedding, I knew I HAD to share a few details with you. I big shout out goes to Talia at Martha Stewart Weddings for sending along a few sweet details.
The couple hosted a four-day fete at The Ranch at Rock Creek in southwest Montana. Michael's family has owned land in Montana for generations and the couple owns a house there, so it was an obvious choice. The Martha Stewart Weddings team took the lead on all of the amazing details for the welcome dinner, rehearsal dinner, the wedding reception, and the brunch. The rehearsal dinner was served family style on enamelware plates with a bandana napkin printed with the couple's monogram and held in place with a horseshoe. The couple's monogram was designed by the groom with the couple's initials (the “C” stands for Catherine) and made to resemble an old-timey ranch brand.
For their rehearsal dinner, the couple danced to Kelly Willis and Bruce Robinson in a down-home, outdoor setting, complete with hay bales and a lovely barn. Kate wore a vintage Chloe gown with Chloe heels. Their Farm to table menu was printed by Spoonflower and hung up for everyone to see.
On their wedding day, the bride and groom looked stunning against and equally stunning mountain backdrop. Michael donned a custom Brooks Brothers suit and shirt, and the bride wore a graceful Oscar de la Renta gown. Check out the entire wedding details, including Kate's second Oscar de la Renta gown embellished with crystals and pearls in the The Winter issue of Martha Stewart Weddings (on newsstands now).
One thing about Kate Bosworth and Michael Polish's mountain wedding is, not only do the details stay true to the couple's style, they also stay true to the history an culture of their Montana venue. And the best part is many of ideas are both assessable and doable for regular mountain brides.
Again, the Winter issue of Martha Stewart Weddings is available on newsstands now with over 16 pages of more amazing details, including reception details with vintage lace and gorgeous chair banners by BHLDN.
