Wyoming Wedding of Memory and Meaning

Christine, or “Teen” as her friends and family call her, had always dreamed of a traditional wedding. When Jens proposed and wanted to get married in the same church where many of his family members had been married, Teen was delighted. Much of the Nicolaysen family was from the town of Casper, Wyoming so his family members were already members of the church where they wed. Jens’ family were also the main benefactors of the art museum where they held their reception.

Teen and Jens kept to family and tradition in many other ways as well- the engagement ring and band she was given had been passed down generations in Jens’ family, she wore a long veil to cover herself completely, the colors were black, white, grey and gold, and there was no “first look.” They also used a vintage wedding cake topper and displayed several generations of family weddings on a special memory table. The dining tables were decorated with photo memories from Jens and Teen's travels around the world. Their dog and son Leif also made a surprise appearance during the evening.

Jens’ father passed away and his wedding band was split up between Jens and his brother, Anders. A skilled jeweler and close family friend had taken Jens’ father’s band, melted and reformed the piece, twisting it with new gold for each son to symbolize the past and future, in a his own signature ring design. Friends and family traveled from around the country to share in the joyous destination wedding of Jens and Teen.
