If you thought “cowboy” and “chic” do not belong together in the same sentence, think again my friend!
I’ll start you off by telling you my favorite line April used when describing her and Justin’s upcoming wedding to me. She said, “I’m thinking of this as more of a big barbeque, than a wedding”. After hearing that, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this wedding!
As it turns out, I found that I (Breanna), really do love big barbeques that also happen to be weddings!
You not only have the opportunity to wear comfortable shoes at the wedding…
…use unique decorations…
(If you like the Cowboy Chic feel and want to see more of April and Justin’s AMAZING decor ideas, then you have to check out the rest of their photos here.)
….and have way more line dancing than I ever knew existed….
….but you also get the opportunity to actual enjoy your own day because you’re so relaxed and aren’t stressing about anything!
Even with all those great aspects of April and Justin’s wedding, my truly favorite part was that they chose to have it in the same little town that Scottie and I had our wedding at 8 years ago, Pinetop, Arizona!
Pinteop is a place where it’s hard to have anything BUT a chill wedding, because it’s such a calm little town in the mountains. So I may be biased, but I think April and Justin chose the perfect place for their laid-back wedding/barbeque!
There was zero and I mean, ZERO stress on April’s part. She was laughing and partying with the best of them instead of worrying about where each person was or where each decoration wasn’t.
I really do think April and Justin found the key to a stress free wedding. And that key is called “cowboy chic”.

Now, you’ll notice that I’m not just saying plain “cowboy”. I’ve added the chic in there for a good reason because this wedding wasn’t all manure and dusty wranglers… this was a wedding with some real chilled out class!
It might have been viewed as a barbeque by the bride and groom, but it was still a wedding and they chose to treat it as such in all the right ways (pretty decor, a beautiful wedding dress, etc, etc), while ignoring some of the wrong ways (turning into bridezilla, being sleep deprived for months… or years.. before, etc, etc).
So April and Justin, I have to say that I think you really have this whole wedding thing down! Which makes sense, considering April did plan weddings for a living in Colorado!
Congratulations you two! We hope the rest of your marriage is as fun as the wedding day was!
