A Mountaintop Surprise in Steamboat

Tiffany & Albert  |  August 11th  | Steamboat Springs, Colorado

From the bride, Tiffany:
Everything about our wedding day was simple, but uniquely ours. We had a small, intimate group of around thirty members of our friends and family, and we surprised each of them by waiting until the night before the wedding to reveal the actual ceremony location…the top of the gondola at Steamboat Ski & Resort. Most of them were from out-of-state, so a gondola ride was not something they had experienced before. The day was sunny and clear, and everyone soaked in the gorgeous scenery on their ride up the mountain. It was truly our perfect day!

We actually ordered our flowers in bulk from the City Market in Steamboat Springs. They were just what I was looking for, and my bridesmaids and I had a blast putting the bouquets together the night before the wedding.

We wanted to do something along the lines of a unity candle, but due to the fact that it was an outdoor wedding and wind may be involved, we decided to do a “unity plant” instead. Albert and I had our parents bring soil from the homes that we each grew up in, and we poured it together as we planted a plant, symbolizing two lives coming together. Our fathers helped with the pouring of the soil, and it was a touching moment for all of us.KeepingComposure08 KeepingComposure09 KeepingComposure10 KeepingComposure11 KeepingComposure12
