Niki & John | September 22nd | Telluride, Colorado
From the bride, Niki:
Our wedding day was one of the last summery days before fall showed its face (literally, the next day it snowed!).
We had a very intimate, family-oriented ceremony. We had no music, no seating, no “aisle”, just our attendants, a ring bearer and two flower girls. Our backdrop was the mountains surrounding Alta Lakes and the blue sky above. It was short and sweet, but had just enough meaning to draw tears.
Our guest book was a dictionary that folks could circle words that reminded them of us and write a note next to. An old suitcase served as our card drop. We had mad libs, and a vintage typewriter with a message from us.
Our seating chart was hand-written on an old window, each table separated by a pane.
Our colors were green and brown, so we used mason jars to hold green flowers with deep red accents, and moss balls with paper mason jars for the table numbers.The floor of the tent was covered in hay while Japanese lanterns and white lights hung above.
My advice: The day will come and things will probably go wrong, but the work you put in pays off!

Amanda & Ryan | September 29th | Edwards, Colorado
From the bride, Amanda:
We both love the mountains and skiing so we decided to plan a destination wedding to Colorado. The Lodge and Spa at Cordillera was the perfect location for us because it had an intimate feel and had breathtaking views of the mountains. We wanted to keep our wedding fairly small and had about 60 people in attendance, all family and close friends.
The ceremony took place on the Overlook Lawn about an hour before sunset. The scenery was even more beautiful than we could have imagined since all of the aspen trees were changing color for fall.
In lieu of a guest book, we had a vintage Colorado map for guests to sign.
We created small wooden decorations that were a part of the table décor. We burned a heart with our initials into small tree stumps.
We both attended Texas A&M University so we wanted some details to reflect this. The groom’s cake and bride’s garter were both A&M themed. We also had the DJ play the Aggie War Hymn at the reception.
It was truly our dream wedding!
