"Just Married" in the Mountains

Photography by Carol Cardwell Photography

From the bride, Erin:
Our ceremony was held outdoors facing the mountains. The aisle was lined with buckets of colorful flowers hanging from shepherd hooks.  My childhood pastor married us. It was perfect.
Favors were white boxes containing Hershey kisses tied with an orange ribbon and a ‘Just Married’ tag.
For our first dance, we had a friend sing ‘Lost in this Moment’ by Big & Rich while we performed a choreographed two-step. Curt is an amazing dance instructor, so we had to do something memorable!

From the bride, Shannon:
We were married in front of a beautiful pond on a Ranch in Mancos, Colorado.  We lined the aisle with rustic watering cans filled with colorful flowers and said our vows under an archway Chris built for the occasion.  Our reception took place on the ranch under a white party tent decorated with white twinkle lights and colorful Chinese lanterns.  My father made the food; besides the fact that he is an exceptional chef, it was special to Chris and I because it made our reception feel more warm and personal.
Chris made me a pearl necklace and pearl earrings that I wore at the wedding! What a wonderful keepsake and something to pass down to our kids someday!

MEMORABLE MOMENT
During our cash dance, my father paid to dance with Chris. It was hilarious! It caught Chris completely by surprise and made for great pictures and everyone thought it was funny.

 

Pagosa Springs Wedding

From the bride, Amy:
It was a perfect day of friends and family as far away as NJ, Florida and California. Our 6PM ceremony took place on a perfectly manicured #5 meadows green at the Pagosa Springs Golf Course. Seated in white chairs among stunning red roses, our guests took in the gorgeous mountains surrounding Pagosa.  My daughter, Isabelle, walked me down the aisle – a memory the three of us will never forget.

After the ceremony, a line of guest-filled golf carts headed to a white tent decorated with soft lights, candles and scrumptious hors d’oeuvres and signature cocktails.  We laughed and danced until the wee hours of the evening. It was perfection!

The ceremony took place in a field behind a private home just outside of Ouray. The bride arrived at the ceremony site in a horse drawn carriage.  After the ceremony, the newly married couple boarded a helicopter and flew to their reception in Montrose.
