Vintage Nordic Mountain Elopement

From the photographer, Suzanne Rothmeyer Photography:  Our inspiration for this shoot was a combination of the natural beauty of the Cascades paired with elegant details, including vintage Scandinavian glassware and traditional food & drink. The Pacific Northwest has a strong Scandinavian influence that we wanted to highlight with the help of some amazing Puget Sound vendors, and to illustrate how even the most intimate celebration can be elegant and dramatic.

A Fall Engagement Shoot on a Motorcycle

Glacier National Park set the stage for this romantic engagement shoot.  What better way to enjoy the beauty of fall than on a motorcycle as the leaves of autumn rain down from the trees creating a road lined with gold. Stop for a picnic, snap a few photos and continue your romantic journey through the forest. Sounds like the perfect recipe for an unforgettable engagement session.

An Autumn Mountain Wedding in Beaver Creek

From the bride, Jenna: For our wedding, we wanted the feel of the mountains with a touch of formality. Anthony and I spend almost every weekend up in Vail from November-April skiing, so the mountains have been a huge part of our relationship.

Anthony put a TON of work into the tandem bike that was at our wedding. It was originally his uncle’s bike….it has a 1950’s French motor on it and Anthony took it over, completely restored it. He painted it our wedding colors, put on new seats, handlebars, basket, etc. Bikes were a big focal point of our wedding. We had it standing outside of our ceremony

We bought 75 pashminas for the guests in case the weather was chilly. We tied a cute burlap ribbon around them, put them in a wooden cart, and wrote “to have and to hold in case you get cold” on a chalkboard.

Reading our vows to one another was amazing!

Each table setting had “we met our match” matches, a bicycle bottle opener that said “let the adventure begin”, and personalized M&Ms.

RECEPTION DECOR
We wanted to go with an “eclectic” look…alternating between tall vs short; boxy vs round on each of the tables as far as the flowers and candles went. We didn’t want any of the table centerpieces to be the same and super matchy matchy. We set a romantic mood with dimmed lights and real candles, which was gorgeous.

The floral “swings” above the tables were breathtaking!

We had a Cuban cigar roller that hand rolled cigars for our guests. Our guest book was an old door we had people sign. We have since hung the door up in our new house and will have our favorite wedding photo blown up and put in the center.

The reception was SO. Much. Fun!!!! We had a live band, and they were absolutely incredible. The dance floor was packed the entire night!

We had an ice cream bar with milkshakes, so yummy!

Our late night snacks were sliders & truffle fries….such a big hit! An Autumn Mountain Wedding in Beaver Creek

LOOKING BACK, I wish I would have spent the week leading up to the wedding really soaking it all in. I was so busy running errands and finalizing last minute details that I was a little stressed when people starting coming into town.

ADVICE: ENJOY THE PROCESS! It will be stressful at times, but soak it all in because it only happens once! Have date nights with your fiancé and really work together to make it the most amazing event!
