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.

Autumn in Beaver Creek

Holly  &  JP |  October 3rd  | Beaver Creek, Colorado

From the bride:
It was so fun having a mountain destination wedding because we got to spend so some much more time with our guests. Having our ceremony outside, atop a mountain during fall when the leaves were changing, was absolutely breathtaking!

Colorado's digital Wedding Magazine, Blog & Vendor Resource DirectoryMy grandmother was too ill to come to the wedding so I added small details of her things so a part of her could be there. I attached my grandmothers antique gold and pearl pin to my bouquet and wrapped one of her antique handkerchiefs around it. Colorado Weddings Magazine - Online Magazine + BlogThe alter had two aspen tree trunks filled with beautiful white and green flowers.Colorado Weddings Magazine - Online Magazine + BlogThe ceremony was very intimate, with only 50 of our closest family and friends, out on the deck of Allie’s Cabin overlooking Beaver Creek mountain. The aspens had just turned and were the perfect golden shade.Colorado Weddings Magazine - Online Magazine + BlogColorado's digital Wedding Magazine, Blog & Vendor Resource Directory Colorado Weddings Magazine - Online Magazine + BlogMy mom named each of our guests tables after a restaurant that we loved in our hometown of Austin, TX. It was a fun surprise arriving to our table and seeing ours was named the restaurant were we got engaged.Colorado Weddings Magazine - Online Magazine + BlogWe placed orchids and candles all over to give the rustic cabin some warmth. Colorado Weddings Magazine - Online Magazine + BlogThe fireplace was stunning with two large cylinders filled with mossy tree branches with floating candles hanging off the branches.

My mother had to piece it back together, re ice it and then place flowers all over it so you couldn’t tell. It looked like the leaning tower of Pisa! It wasn’t very funny at the time, but looking back it makes me laugh.Colorado's digital Wedding Magazine, Blog & Vendor Resource DirectoryWe ran through an archway of sparklers, we had to get special permission to have sparklers up on the mountain but it was worth it.Colorado's digital Wedding Magazine, Blog & Vendor Resource DirectoryMy advice is to have fun with the planning and don’t over stress. Something will go wrong but looking back it will most likely be funny and add character to the wedding.

A Fall Romance in Telluride

Karen & Brendan | September 30th  |  Telluride, Colorado

From the bride, Karen:
We felt the most romantic time to have a wedding was in the fall, highlighting rich jewel tones and our love of the outdoors. Our day was perfect!  The aspens were ablaze in gold and yellow against a bright blue sky on a warm 70 degree September day. Our ceremony took place at the San Sophia Overlook which is perched at 10,500 ft and is surrounded by the Sneffles Range that frames Telluride to the north & the Wilsons Range to the south, with magnificent views of the town of Telluride 1,800 ft below. We  were able to sneak away into town during coctail hour and have some pictures taken of just the two of us which also gave us some private time together after the wedding.

PERSONAL TOUCHES
-Our dog jack was our ring bearer and was walked down the aisle by our junior bridesmaid and flower girl.

-We choreographed our first dance to “Fly Me to the Moon”.  The band started out slow then picked up the beat so we could swing dance. Our guests were really surprised!

-My husband, Brendan, is really creative and made signs pointing towards the ceremony site and a just married sign for the gondola (our means of transportation!).

-Brendan also made cones to hold rose petals that guests were able to toss for our recessional. They had the music “All you need is love” printed on them, which the string quartet played.
