A Mountain Destination Wedding at the Silverthorne Pavilion

From the bride, Heidi:

WHY COLORADO: I spent a lot of time in the Silverthorne area growing up during ski season and in Breckenridge in the summers. Mac took a trip to the area with friends in college and it’s where he fell in love with mountains. It was great to find a location that had sentimental meaning for both of us.A Mountain Destination Wedding at the Silverthorne Pavilion

THE STYLE: I wanted to compliment the beauty of Colorado and the mountains with a lot of natural colors and tons of plant greenery because I love plants. I also just wanted a timeless look; something that would be beautiful for years and years.

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT: I really loved our first look. It was exciting and also calming to see Mac for the first time. I feel like it broke the ice and allowed me to just relax and enjoy the whole day.

THE CEREMONY: Our ceremony was held in a field with the gorgeous Rocky Mountains as our backdrop, big open sky, and lots of trees; the location really felt secluded.  The aisles were decorated with tree rounds cut to various heights with lanterns on top. Mac’s dad married us and gave a wonderful message. Every part of the ceremony just felt so personal.

FUN MEMORY: On our walk down the aisle as a newly married couple Mac stopped and kissed me and then carried me the rest of the way. That was pretty cute and got a nice crowd reaction.

THE RECEPTION: We had the reception was at the Silverthorne Pavilion, which is already beautiful. All we did was decorate each guest table with ivory tablecloths, trailing greenery, lanterns, and  candles.

THE CAKEI loved our cake, which was decorated with a mountain and tree outline. It tasted SO good! I had my brother bring me a few extra pieces after we’d made our exit because I wanted to eat more!

ADVICE: It’s possible to have a really amazing and perfect day with a short period of planning. We got engaged in February and married in July and we were able to get everything done and set up in a relatively short period of time. We were just so excited about being married and the wedding is only one day. Don’t get me wrong it’s the BEST day, but I think it’s just as important to plan and get excited for the marriage as it is for the wedding.

Also, I recommend having a social time prior to the wedding, especially if you have a lot of out-of-town guests (or you yourself are coming from out of town). We opened a period of time after our rehearsal dinner to invite anyone who was around to come hang out. It just took a lot of the stress off the wedding day because people already had some time to mingle with us. Mac and I didn’t feel like we were being bombarded with people at the wedding.

A Garden Wedding at Flying Dog Ranch

From the bride, Laura: It was a beautiful September day in the Roaring Fork Valley without a cloud in the sky and a comfortable 70 degrees. The garden at Flying Dog Ranch was perfectly manicured with an array of natural colors and flowers. Guests enjoyed cocktails and a breathtaking view of Mt. Sopris and the valley while they waited for the ceremony to begin.

THE CEREMONY: The wedding party walked into “Good Day Sunshine” by the Beatles and I walked in with “Her Comes the Sun” by the Beatles (pretty appropriate for the day). The ceremony was held around the pond and was only about 8 minutes long.

We had lawn games setup around the garden for everyone to enjoy including a game called “Kan Jam” which incorporated throwing a frisbee which is how we met, playing ultimate frisbee.

THE FAVORS: We did our own photo booth. I bought a polaroid camera, props, and let people go nuts in our DIY photo booth. Everyone loved it. The photos along with a mini tree photo holder were their party gifts.

Intimate Moroccan Wedding Inspiration

From the photographer, McKenzie Coyle Photography: Shot in the majestic red rocks of Colorado, this intimate and romantic shoot had a decidedly Moroccan feel. The neutral mountain landscape contrasted with the vibrant florals, layers of soft textiles, and mixed metallics all combined to make the perfect secluded paradise. Seductive candlelight and the fading stormy weather gave the evening a cozy and sensual feel. We love the distinction of the traditional Moroccan theme juxtaposed with modern decor and design elements to give this look a timeless appeal.
