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!
