Wedding Album: Inside Chris Klein and Laina Rose Thyfault's Country-Inspired Ceremony
SO, THIS IS LOVE
After more than three years together, American Pie actor Chris Klein and longtime love Laina Rose Thyfault, a travel agent, became engaged around Christmas 2014. The duo met at a mutual friend's wedding, and tied the knot on Sunday, Aug. 9, in Gallatin Gateway, Montana.
COUNTRY AT HEART
When it came time to locking down a location for their ceremony, the couple immediately agreed on Big Sky Country, fondly recalling a trip to Montana a few years before.
There was no shortage of bling for the bride, who donned jewel-encrusted heels, matching earrings and, of course, her new wedding band.
LOOK OF LOVE
Klein and Thyfault got a glimpse at each other before the start of the ceremony. "Laina looked beautiful. She holds herself with such grace," Klein tells PEOPLE. "I am a very grateful man."
Here, a close-up of the bride's bouquet, which consisted of an assortment of flowers and lace holder.
ALL ABOUT THE DETAILS
But don't forget the guys! The groomsmen and officiant sported earthy boutonnieres, too.
The bride and groom, along with their bridal party, pose for a group photo, set against a grassy backdrop. "We fell in love with the area and the nature," says Klein. "Luckily we have families who love to travel and also love nature so it was the perfect spot for us."
MAKING IT OFFICIAL
The bride (in Yumi Katsura) and groom (in a custom Shoreditch London three-piece suit) exchanged vows in front of 115 guests during an outdoor ceremony at the Rainbow Ranch.
The couple walks down the aisle as husband and wife. "Promising forever was definitely the highlight," Klein says. "Nothing gets better than that."
JOIN THE CELEBRATION
Klein and Thyfault's wedding invitation was equal parts minimalist and sweet, and included a color scheme of pink and teal.
THE FAB FOUR
Accompanied by her three pint-sized guests attendants, Thyfault poses in the grassy meadow on her wedding day.
A LITTLE PIECE OF PARADISE
The picturesque locale featured an outdoor church with vintage pews on the banks of the Gallatin River.
BREAKING IT DOWN
For their first dance, the couple chose George Strait's "I Got a Car" – a nod to their Texas roots. "The song is actually about a man who meets a woman and they go start a life together," says Klein. "We did a groovy two-step to it!"
