Seriously, when you get married in an outdoor location like Idaho's Snake River Canyon, who needs to worry about floral arrangements, chair covers, aisle runners, pom-poms or anything else?

To see more of Melissa's wedding (including the bowling alley reception!), head on over to her page on the OBT.

Comments on Melissa’s Idaho wedding

  1. You have my dream wedding reception. I have been going back and forth about a bowling alley reception but I was scared of the nay-sayers and the you-gottas. Awesome wedding!

    PS Did you rent out the entire bowling alley?

  2. Thanks, everyone! It was truly the best day of my life.

    Kendra– No, we reserved six lanes and actually ended up with only four. A little frustrating, but we made do. We had a few gawkers, but most everyone thought it was awesome.

  3. An offbeat wedding in Idaho?! I spent the last decade in ultra traditional Idaho. I am so happy that you were able to do such a wonderful, offbeat wedding in Idaho! Congrats!

  4. I went to Mel’s wedding, and I agree — awesome and gorgeous! she actually had two receptions, one just after the wedding, and one the next day at the local museum. I have to say, the bowling alley totally rocked the house, though there were aspects of the second reception (an awesome table of memorabilia, including how they met and the fantastic dessert bar) that ruled! I learned a lot from her celebrations that I’m planning to use in my upcoming nuptials (I’ve been engaged two weeks, and never looked at sites beforehand, but I’m getting seriously into wedding porn now…I hope the impulse to browse mellows once I start making decisions!).
