Classic Vail Wedding

Alba and Jordan’s  classic Vail wedding took place at Donovan Pavilion the second weekend of October in the lovely mountains of Vail, Colorado.  The fall colors made a stunning backdrop for their mountainside first look.  And Becca, the couples adorable pup was the cutest “Dog of Honor”. Alba has such a classic style which made for a timeless and romantic day at the iconic venue. Congrats again Alba & Jordan!

Elegant & Intimate Mountain Wedding

Jessica and Kiffer’s intimate mountain wedding was absolutely stunning! From the ceremony at the Vail Wedding Deck ( I mean look at that view!!), to the elegant reception, marvelous food presentation by Hooked, and the of course the couple themselves. Not to mention the bride’s amazing wedding dresses including a top she designed herself! Such a joy to witness these best friends tie the knot and celebrate with their closest friends and family. Thank you Jessica and Kiffer for letting me be a part of your special day.

Creative Boho Wedding

Bailey and Chad had an awesome, creative boho wedding at Piney River Ranch in Vail Colorado. This stunning venue is located at the foot of the Gore Range right next to Piney Lake in Colorado. To help Bailey’s vision of a chic boho wedding come to life she brought in the talented Rachel with March Floral Designs. Rachel knocked it out of the park with her creative ideas from a wildflower semi-circle garland ceremony piece for the couple to stand in which was perfect since it didn’t block the views, to the bridesmaids similar yet each one uniquely different bouquets with mismatched ribbon or leathers strands, to the head table adorned with the garland repurposed from the ceremony with flowers and candles spread throughout and vines that sprang from the table and cascaded to the floor! 

Other amazing details that came together to create this gorgeous day included calligraphed watercolored escort cards hung on a macrame backdrop with a guestbook sign to match, and calligraphed signs of the bar menu, welcome sign and large chalkboard sign with a love quote to hang in the newlyweds home.  An extra special detail was that their first dance and ceremony were held on the deck of the Ranch overlooking the lake and the mountains.  This charming day was captured so beautifully by Kellsworth Photo. See it here on Green Wedding Shoes! Congratulations again Bailey & Chad!

Organic Mountain Wedding Inspiration

We are so excited to see this elegant and organic mountain wedding inspiration shoot being featured on Magnolia Rouge! The Rocky Mountains never disappoint for a backdrop, but they are especially spectacular in late September, when the aspens become resplendent in shades of gold, amber, orange and deep red. Keeping the design simple, warm and welcoming meant it didn’t distract from the natural beauty of the mountains. A color palette of treys, ambers, peaches, and burgundy complemented the landscape and the season.

We kept the table design very clean and simple to highlight two gorgeous focal points, a one-of-a-kind hand-carved taper holder and the gorgeous arch under which the table sat. The table was set with simple, classic plates from Handmade Studio on gorgeous table linen from La Tavola and a handmade runner. Gorgeous matte flatware from were a perfect compliment to the vintage gunmetal marais chairs from Electric Hive. We wanted the clean, modern feel of the table to be offset by the wild, textural structure above it. The arch was bedecked with lush smilax, crabapple branches, seeded hydrangea, liquid amber, broom corn and amaranthus. We couldn’t resist tucking in a few perfect black beauty roses as a finishing touch. For the dress we wanted something minimalistic but beautiful. The Charmeuse Watters tank top with raw edges paired with a flowy pleated skirt by Grace from Anna Be was the perfect fit.
