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.

A Dandelion “I Do”

Julie & Jon  |  June 17th  | Ouray, Colorado

From the bride:
We have traveled a lot to Colorado to camp and vacation. When we visited Ouray for the first time, we fell in love with the small mountain town. It is such a beautiful and relaxing place for an intimate wedding. There are so many activities in and around town for everyone to enjoy and everything is within walking distance.

We held our intimate ceremony in a field of dandelions surrounded by towering mountain peaks, it was breathtaking!After we said, “I do”, we were presented with two dandelion bouquets to blow out. That was so much fun and made for great pictures. RECOMMENDED VENDORS

    I love the bride's wedding gown, and yes, there's nothing more romantic than getting married in a field of dandelion! So very lovely!

Destination Telluride

Jen  & Fred |  July 10th  |  Telluride, Colorado | Excerpt from the Luxe Mountain Weddings  Preview Issue

From the bride:
We live in Atlanta and have friends and family all over the country, so we knew we wanted to have a destination wedding.  We looked at Costa Rica and a few other places, but decided Telluride would be the perfect location especially since it’s where we first fell in love!

Photography by Luxe Collection Member Kyla Jackson Photography

Instead of corsages, we had floral purses made for our parents and grandparents.

Our ceremony seating was hay bales covered with fabric.

We had a rockin  after, after party with a live band at the Sheridan Opera House.
