 Jennifer and Scott were married at Four Seasons Vail in Vail, Colo. on November 23. The bride looked beautiful in a strapless ballgown with a beaded bodice and sweetheart neckline. She wore a fur coat and fingertip veil. Her hair was donned in a tussled updo and she accessorized with a thing white headband. She carried a bouquet of white roses, ranunculus, dusty miller, pine cones, seeded eucalyptus, and silver brunia balls. The groom looked dapper in a gray three-piece suit and cowboy hat. The pair planned their Colorado nuptials in just three weeks. “A short engagement is the best. A little stress for a short period of time,” Jennifer said of the timeline. “I couldn’t have made it anymore amazing if I had an entire year to plan it.” The 35 guests gathered to watch the pair exchange vows in front of a stunning mountain backdrop. A reception followed where guests gathered around a banquet table with blush linens, planks of barnwood, mercury glass votives, and birch vases filled with flowers. “A banquet style table was beautiful and much more intimate with the size of our wedding,” Jennifer said of the seating arrangements. Guests enjoyed dinner and a three-tier white fondant cake adorned with satin ribbon, pinecones, and white flowers. Jennifer’s advice to brides getting married far from home? ” If you are having a destination wedding you must have a coordinator!” See the full board here.

Natalie and Aaron were married at The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colo. on August 9. Natalie wore her mother’s v-neck lace gown with short sleeves. Her hair was down and wavy, and she accessorized with a crystal headband, classic dangling earrings, and a matching necklace. She carried a bouquet of yellow and ivory roses, ranunculus, and seeded eucalyptus. Her ‘maids donned strapless chiffon dresses in various shades of yellow, gray, and champagne. The groom and his men looked handsome in dark suits and pale yellow ties. The ceremony took place outside the hotel with the Colorado mountains serving as the backdrop. The couple exchanged vows in front of just 70 guests under a wrought iron arch with hanging florals. The ceremony included an adorable flower girl and ring bearer pair and personal vows. A reception followed inside the hotel in a room with sweeping mountain views. Guests sat at round tables with crisp white linens and movie-inspired centerpieces. “Since the wedding was at the Stanley Hotel which was the inspiration for the Stephen King novel ‘The Shining,’ we added subtle references to the book and movie adaptions,” Natalie said. “One example was our hedge animal centerpieces. The other parts of the décor were more in line with the old fashioned feel of the hotel.” The bride and groom had everyone join in and dance with them for their entrance, a unique twist on a wedding tradition! After dinner, guests indulged in a three tier white cake adorned with yellow flowers. Natalie’s advice for engaged couples planning their wedding? “Don’t try to hire friends to save a buck; you get what you pay for,” she said. “I spent more than I would have liked but in the end it was definitely worth it!” See the full board here.

Molly and Ben were married at Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield in Littleton, Co. on July 12. Molly donned a boho bridal look with a lace dress, tan wedges, and a messy chic ‘do accessorized with a flower crown. She carried a bouquet of  roses, hydrangeas, veronica, and seeded eucalyptus that she and family members made themselves. Her 8 ‘maids picked out their own dresses and wore various shades of nude, blush, champagne, and taupe. The groom and his men wore blue suits (the groom opted for a lighter than everyone else’s) and sported a mix of both neck and bow ties. Both Molly’s mom and dad walked her down the aisle, where she met her soon-to-be husband in the gazebo with a beautiful mountain backdrop. A friend officiated the ceremony as 120 guests watched. A reception followed, where a lot of the decor was handmade. “We are both artists so every detail was made or hand picked by us,” Molly said. “Ben is a jewelry artist who makes one of kind jewelry using natural gemstone crystals, so we had to incorporate crystals which we used in our place settings and invitations.” Guests were asked to drop well-wishes cards in a mailbox and were directed to their seats by escort cards held by clothespins. Instead of a traditional sit-down dinner, the couple had Bistro Colorado food truck cater the wedding. For dessert guests indulged on a naked cake and a dessert display of sprinkled donuts and macaroons. “I wanted to make sure that everyone there felt the love and joy that we were feeling,” Molly said. “It was the personal touches that mattered to us most. All our friends and family helped and I believe that is what made our day truly special.” See the full board here.

Channing + Kellan: Rustic Colorado Military Mountain Wedding by Joshua McDonald Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Channing and Kellan were married at The Barn at Evergreen Park in Evergreen, Co. on June 7. The bride stunned in a lace gown with a portrait neckline. She wore her hair in a simple updo and carried a bouquet of pink, green, and white blooms and berries. Her bridesmaids donned short champagne-colored dresses and carried bouquets with the same blooms. The groom wore traditional military attire, while his men wore black suits and matching bow ties. “When we started planning, we immediately loved the idea of a mountain wedding,” Channing said. “We wanted a location with lots of natural beauty that didn’t need a lot of decorating.” The bride and groomed tied the knot in front of a small group of 75 friends and family members in a traditional ceremony. Afterwards, guests made their way to the rustic barn, where they sat at wooden banquet tables with floral center pieces. Guests dined on BBQ pulled pork, chicken, and beef brisket. Dinner was followed by toasts, a three-tiered cake adorned with flowers, and of course dancing. Channing and Kellan realized there were certain reception elements they simply could not do without. “We decided we had to have good food, good beer, and a great band at the reception.” At the end of the night the guests formed a tunnel of sparklers for the newlyweds to run through and begin their life as husband and wife. Channing’s best advice? “Things don’t always go as planned,” she said. “Expect that things will change and bounce back when something unexpected happens.” See the full board here.
