Brad and Emily’s had a picturesque Rocky Mountain wedding in Colorado last Fall. As outdoor enthusiasts, they were inspired to pick The Winding River Ranch tucked in the Colorado mountain town of Grand Lake. Emily wore a stunning lace gown by Nicole Miller and her bridesmaids wore mismatched dresses in shades of purple, nude, and blush. Flora by Nora’s fall inspired arrangements brought the reception to life along with a live band that kept the guests dancing all night. Photography was a huge priority for the couple since the groom is Brads the CEO of Artifact Uprising. They choose the talented Levi Tijerina to capture the day. The true beauty of this wedding was all the special touches. Table numbers were National Parks which was fitting since they got married with the Rocky Mountain National Park as their ceremony backdrop. The bride’s grandmother needlepointed the bright colored Chuppah that hung above them as they said “I do”. Thanks Brad and Emily for letting us be a part of your big day!

The couple chose to seat their 75 guests at two long farm tables, which were a real focal point for the evening. The wooden tables were set with vintage china, delicate grey runners, and a gorgeous mix of florals in wood boxes, delicate brown bottles, and beautiful smoky glass and stone urns filled with textural and lush blooms in a deep and saturated color palette. Watercolor painted place cards, loose artichokes and beautiful votives finished off the tables perfectly. Overhead, an eclectic mix of Edison bulbs were hung to give the tables a gorgeous glow.
Some of our other favorite details included a whiskey tasting, Free People bridesmaid dresses, and custom made cowgirl boots for the bride! This wedding is so much FUN. We hope you love it as much as we do!
