From the Magazine: Simply Us in Breckenidge

screenshotOne look at all the gorgeous florals from this wedding was all it took for us to fall in love. When the bride said the flowers (from Cori Cook) stole the show, we could not agree more.  From the bouquets to the centerpieces, Cori weaved a soft muted color palette of coral, cream, peach, yellow, and mint florals throughout the day. We also loved the homemade details the couple (Jenny & Jimmy) created to carry out their “hearts and chevron” theme. For example, they cut out 1,000 paper hearts and glued them on wood sticks then planted in the grass to create the ceremony aisle, love!  Add in a gorgeous outdoor location in the mountains and we just knew this wedding belonged in print!  Read the entire wedding day story in the Magazine (page 18) HERE, then order yourself a copy of the Magazine HERE!

“You and Me, Come What May”

From the bride, Hilary:
We took a trip to Telluride about a year into dating and had such a great time. Telluride is the epitome of us as our motto is “You and me, come what may.”

My Dad had orange and black umbrellas made for our ceremony…just in case. PhotobyJulie03 PhotobyJulie04Our ceremony was held at San Sophia Overlook (10,000 feet). I Walked down the aisle to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, one of my husband’s favorite songs.

My advice: Get away and do something for the two of you! PhotobyJulie12


Venue & Catering: Telluride Ski Resort.  The staff at Telluride Ski Resort did an incredible job, and I would highly recommend this venue to anyone.  It was the perfect rustic, with elegance setting.  They allowed us to customize the menu, do any and all decorations we wanted, and even accommodated our iPod and song list. Such a cozy place!  Holli Owen and Lacey Downing were simply amazing. They were so easy to work and had every last detail taken care of.  They stayed at the reception to make sure we had everything we wanted.  Awesome!

Wedding Gown: D’Anelli Bridal  //   Hair & Makeup: Shayla Wilkes, YX Salon   //  Nails & Tanning: Studio G  //  Cake: The Butcher & Baker Cafe  //   Rentals: Viking Rentals

Guest Lodging: Hotel Columbia. The staff here bent over backwards for us….there was never a request they could not handle ….from putting my flowers in water when they arrived, to allowing my husband to wash his Ford Bronco in their driveway, to placing gift bags in our guests’ rooms, so simply being wonderful….they did it all!

Styled Shoot: Romantic Country Elegance

From the photographer, Alea Lovely Fine Art Photographer:
A little bit of country, a little bit of elegance. We got away from the rustic look and found a more romantic way to fit this wedding. With bright colors and eye catching details, my team and I put together a styled shoot that a bride from any region could get on board with.

The dress by Ivy and Aster was a great complement to the shoot. With laser cut layers and a gorgeously detailed beaded cape, it was a super light and airy gown and also perfectly falls in line with the bridal fashion trending right now.  Alea02

The invites were watercolor with a modern approach to the RSVP card. Alea03 Alea04

I loved the cake table. The three cakes with ombre details and soft pastels was a new spin on the traditional one cake. Stunning florals accented the unfinished wooden top table and the “bride and groom” mannequins brought a very unique accent to the table.Alea05

The reception table was a worn blue table and we used purple napkins to contrast the colors of the florals. Old silverware was placed next to the gold-lined plates for a subtle juxtaposition of classic and antique. There were great food details like the mini open fruit pies, pecan desserts, and a peach signature drink with actual sliced peaches in it.Alea09Alea10Alea11
