From the bride, Hilary:
We took a trip to Telluride about a year into dating and had such a great time. Telluride is the epitome of us as our motto is “You and me, come what may.”

My Dad had orange and black umbrellas made for our ceremony…just in case. PhotobyJulie03 PhotobyJulie04Our ceremony was held at San Sophia Overlook (10,000 feet). I Walked down the aisle to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, one of my husband’s favorite songs.

Hilary’s RECOMMENDED VENDORS

Venue & Catering: Telluride Ski Resort.  The staff at Telluride Ski Resort did an incredible job, and I would highly recommend this venue to anyone.  It was the perfect rustic, with elegance setting.  They allowed us to customize the menu, do any and all decorations we wanted, and even accommodated our iPod and song list. Such a cozy place!  Holli Owen and Lacey Downing were simply amazing. They were so easy to work and had every last detail taken care of.  They stayed at the reception to make sure we had everything we wanted.  Awesome!

Photographer: Photography by Juliewonderful to work with.  Great pics!  Second shooter: Carrie Johnson

Wedding Gown: D’Anelli Bridal  //   Hair & Makeup: Shayla Wilkes, YX Salon   //  Nails & Tanning: Studio G  //  Cake: The Butcher & Baker Cafe  //   Rentals: Viking Rentals

Guest Lodging: Hotel Columbia. The staff here bent over backwards for us….there was never a request they could not handle ….from putting my flowers in water when they arrived, to allowing my husband to wash his Ford Bronco in their driveway, to placing gift bags in our guests’ rooms, so simply being wonderful….they did it all!
