From the Magazine: Garden Chic at Flying Dog Ranch

coverfdg

From the couple: We visited all the popular venues in the Aspen area, but started feeling a little discouraged because nothing really matched our vision until we visited Flying Dog Ranch.  As soon as we walked onto the property, it was love at first site. Lydia gave us a tour and we kept looking at each other thinking, this is going to be way outside our budget. We were shocked to hear it was half the cost of the other venues we had seen, and we committed on the spot to having the wedding there!

From the Magazine: Tradition in the Mountains

A Traditional Wedding in the Rocky Mountains | Colorado Weddings Magazine

Today, we are featuring the couple that graces our cover, Maureen & Shawn. Their destination wedding in Steamboat Springs was a mix of traditional elements with a mountain vibe. They incorporated a color palette of greens and neutrals with gold accents designed by Quintessential Weddings. We especially love all the mountaintop images of the couple beautifully captured by Rachel Havel.

I had a few veil malfunctions. My husband stepped on it during the ceremony and it jerked my head back. That caused a lot of laughs. My veil also got stuck on a post as we were doing our grand exit from the church. It flew off, but I just kept going.” A Traditional Wedding in the Rocky Mountains | Colorado Weddings Magazine A Traditional Wedding in the Rocky Mountains | Colorado Weddings Magazine A Traditional Wedding in the Rocky Mountains | Colorado Weddings Magazine A Traditional Wedding in the Rocky Mountains | Colorado Weddings Magazine A Traditional Wedding in the Rocky Mountains | Colorado Weddings Magazine

 “Looking back, our wedding was a dream. All we wanted was our closest loved ones with us on a vacation with God’s landscape as our decor and we got it.  When planning your wedding, remember that there are no rules. Your wedding day should be a direct reflection of you both and your personalities.”

Eve and Don met in Afghanistan, got engaged in Ireland, and tied the knot at one of our favorite Colorado venues, Devil’s Thumb Ranch.  JA Special Events planned this heart-felt celebration that was perfectly captured by Brinton Studios.

A Floral Filled Wedding in Estes

Sydney & Mike  |  June 29th  | Estes Park, Colorado

From the photographer, Amy Caroline Photography:
Sydney and Mike were married at the glam/rustic venue Della Terra Mountain Chateau. It suit both of them perfectly as it fit Mike’s rustic Colorado side, but also the glitzy glamorous side of Sydney. Surrounded by pink, jewels and amazing flowers, these two said their vows under a blue Colorado sky. Sydney’s bridesmaids all wore some sort of bling with fun pink dresses, the reception was to die for with a classic monogrammed cake from Intricate Icings Cake Design covered in fresh flowers, and gorgeous floral arrangements from Cori Cook Floral Design that fit Sydney’s big personality. The day was a true Colorado beauty.

A Destination Wedding in Breckenridge

Madison & Bobby  |  October 20th  |  Breckenridge, Colorado

From the bride: When planning our wedding day, we knew we wanted a small intimate group at our favorite backdrop, the Colorado Rocky Mountains. We wanted our marriage covenant to honor God, and to be a timeless event that was simple, yet beautiful.

 Bobby and I decided not see each other before the ceremony. Which was why our favorite part was seeing each other for the first time when I walked down the aisle in my wedding dress and veil. It was also super special to me, because that was when I saw what suit Bobby picked for the first time. It was fun to have my surprise too!
