Old West Charm in Durango

Lauren & Chad |  October 1st | Strater Hotel, Durango

From the bride, Lauren:
Our wedding day was perfect!   The weather was brisk, but it turned out to be a gorgeous fall day. We both loved being surrounded by all our friends and family. Our reception at the Strater Hotel was the best party I’ve been to!  All our guests were up on the dance floor the entire night – great fun!!  The Strater Hotel was an excellent location for our reception they eased our stress and worked so hard to make everything work smoothly, making the evening more fun than we could have imagined.

Telluride Love

Photography by IlluminArts Photography

From the bride, Kohli:
I chose Telluride for my wedding long before I chose my husband.  I love Telluride and consider it my second home.  Fortunately, my husband loves it too!

We had our bouquets wrapped with antique embroidered handkerchiefs and we all wore Hunter (mud) boots in different colors. We also created a wreath design with an “F” emblem that we used at the ceremony site and on the cake. I collected dozens of old aqua mason jars that we placed on the tables and filled with either fresh flowers or candles. We had a three layer carrot cake covered in white fondant, sage green piping and our emblem. Our favors were sugar cookies, a journal and pen tied with green satin ribbon.
PERSONAL TOUCHES
-Our welcome baskets for guests were tea towel satchels that I constructed and filled with bottled water, trail mix, cookies, chewing gum, eye drops and the weekend itineraries.
-I always wanted a pair of custom designed cowboy boots so I had some made to wear with my wedding dress.
-We tried to buy things that we would use again (cowboy boots, jewelry, mud boots, etc.) with the added benefit of remembering our day every time we wore those items.
-Saturday morning, my dad led a hike to Bear Creek with all the guests.
-We had a welcome reception for all our guests Friday and Saturday night along with a farewell brunch on Sunday morning.

Mad Hatter Forest Tea Party

Melinda & Mike | July 30th | Pagosa Springs, Colorado

From the bride:
I wanted our wedding to be fun without the formality and I loved the idea of a whimsical  ‘Alice in Wonderland’ tea party.

Photography by Cedar House PhotographyDuring our ceremony, the weather was cloudy with a strong possibility of heavy rain.  As our officiant began reciting an Apache wedding verse, she said “and there will be no more rain”  the sun broke through the clouds for a moment and our guests all gasped and then laughed. Shortly after the ceremony, it rained, it poured and then it hailed.I spent six months collecting mismatched china from second hand stores.
My favorite detail was my great great grandmothers teapot.
