A Winter Destination Wedding in Breckenridge

From the bride, Shannon:
We live in New Orleans but all of our family/friends are back in Wisconsin & Minnesota so we decided a smaller destination wedding was our best option. We love the mountains and knew we wanted a snowy winter wedding. We love to ski/snowboard but wanted a location that had a variety of activities for our friends/family that don’t ski.

My favorite memory was walking down the aisle to Donny.

We had garland and candles over the mantel in the foyer.

For our wedding favors, my sister and I hand dipped pinecones in wax to create pinecone fire starters.

Instead of having a guestbook, we had our friends/family sign some vintage snow skis.

My favorite decorations were the gold picture frames with love quotes on each table because Donny and I picked the quotes out together.

Looking back, I was a nervous wreck leading up to it the wedding and I wish I would have just relaxed cause everything turned out great and we had the most amazing wedding day, but nothing compares to being married to your soulmate.

Styled Shoot: Rose Quartz Chic

We are loving this pretty in pink styled shoot featuring rose quartz.  Rose quartz is considered the “love” stone for the ages. It vibrates of unconditional love, joy, warmth and healing. Its energy is powerful and resonates with heart chakra. It gives a soothing vibration that bestows a peaceful and calming sense. When held in a hand it will enhance the use of positive affirmations.

A Traditional Hindu Wedding in Crested Butte

Crested Butte was the destination location for Chicago residents Geeta and Adarsh.  The couple wanted a traditional Hindu religious ceremony against the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains and nature.  They both wanted their friends and family to not only share in the joy of them embarking on their marriage, but also spend the week in a glorious unique setting exploring and making their own memories. What better choice than Crested Butte!
