The wedding will be in the winter in Colorado on a ranch. Themes we'd like to convey: western, ski lodge/chalet, hunting, alpine. Hence, we're looking for a fairly simple logo that conveys a rustic tone. We'd love to see some integration of western imagery, (i.e. a cattle brand, or a laso, horse, ski mountain, cowboy hat, etc). But we don't want it too cluttered.
The letters "L" and "A" must be included in the logo, and that should be the only text included. Do not use any silly fonts -- we want the font to convey western strength. Consider making them into a brand, or putting them on a hat, or making a mountain out of them.
For colors, we want to keep it very simple. 2 or 3 colors maximum. Stick to dark colors (brown, black). The logo will be used on save-the-dates, invites, the wedding website, thank you cards, etc.
