From the bride, Lindsey: Growing up, every year my family would take a ski trip to Colorado. I fell in love with Colorado and the mountains at an early age. Adel and I spent several vacations in Estes Park and made lasting memories that forever impacted our relationship. It was only natural that we would chose to get married in the town we loved and shared such strong memories.
I never was a big fan of uniform Bridesmaid dresses. I gave my bridesmaids a color palette (blush/taupe/metallic) and encouraged them to choose dresses that fit their personalities. There is nothing worse than having to buy and wear a dress you do not love. I wanted each bridesmaids to look and feel her best.
Each bridesmaid was given a fur collar to pair with their dress to wear on the big day- It ended up looking amazing!
We couldn’t have gotten married without our dog, Micky being a part of the day!
We placed a big focus on neutrals colors and flowers with pine cone and greenery elements. We incorporated Native American elements into the ceremony, many of which my husband picked out himself.
Looking back, I never imagined I would be so stress free and relaxed the day of my wedding. I enjoyed taking in every moment of the big day!
We had a blast creating custom wedding gift bags for our guests!
For the centerpieces, we incorporated pieces of my personal milk glass collection. I have collected hundreds of pieces over the years that I am a little obsessed with.
My advice: Hire a wedding planner! Having a great wedding planner allows you to be able to relax and enjoy your big day. You shouldn’t have to worry about anything except getting married and having an amazing time!
Lindsey & Adel’s RECOMMENDED VENDORS
Luxe Venue: Devil’s Thumb Ranch. This is by far the most unique, upscale resort and venue in Winter Park. Service, people, and venue are 5 star and absolutely top notch. We were treated like royalty the entire week. I would highly recommend getting married at Devils Thumb Ranch!
Photographer: Brinton Studios. CR and Tiff are a gorgeous, fun, professional husband and wife photography team. I highly, highly recommend them! Their photos speak volumes about their work, but this couple is so much more than just Amazing photography. They made the entire process so easy and comfortable for us.
Event Design & Planning, Flowers: Kara Delay, Love This Day Events. I don’t think I can say it enough- Kara Delay is Amazing!! She did such a fantastic job and was an absolute joy to work with. Not only was she fantastic as a wedding planner, but this girl has such a fun personality and is so much fun to be around that you instantly want to be best friends with her. Her passion for everything wedding is so contagious- it has even caused me to rethink my career and what I want in life. She is an inspiration and a perfect example of “Do what you love, and love what you do.”
