Suzy + Levi :: Custer State Park Wedding :: South Dakota :: Custer, SD :: Custer State Park Resort & Lodge

Suzy + Levi are awesome! Their wedding was ALL ABOUT BUFFALOS 🙂 (Suzy is Obsessed with them). When Levi and Suzy visited Custer State Park a couple years back, they drove by the Custer State Park Lodge and said to themselves “THAT is where we are getting married.” They stayed true to their word and got hitched there this summer; what a blast! Suzy is one of Julia’s best friends from South Dakota, so naturally we were both super excited to capture the wedding! We had the first look in a gorgeous meadow outside of the main wedding headquarters, then took a drive out to the Custer State Park Game Loop to see if we could track down some buffalo. Unfortunately we didn’t, but later, around sunset, we went on a TREK to find buffalo (as Suzy is a fanatic). We FINALLY found one, his name, we decided, was “AL,” and Suzy now calls him, “Al, our anniversary Buffalo.” Their ceremony was under some gorgeous trees near a meadow, the reception in a huge outdoor pavilion with family-style tables. Once the dancing got started, they had S’MORES, COME ON! Eventually, Suzy and Levi left the party with a line of “YAY” flags and screaming friends/family! 🙂 You can find a full list of vendors below, scroll all the way down and enjoy! 🙂
