Wedding Inspiration in the Blue Ridge Mountains

The incredible view of the Blue Ridge Mountain range was the inspiration behind this off the beaten path styled shoot.  The invitation suite was printed on handmade paper featuring watercolors that highlight the Blue Ridge Mountains. The table setting and decor combine the look of the natural surroundings with subtle modern gold touches in the candlesticks and with the slight shimmer of the table linen. These accents continue on through the cake table using natural greenery to highlight the gorgeous blush three tiered cake. Any couple searching for a way to combine the outdoors with a formal and classic wedding vision will certainly connect with the look of this wedding.

A Texas Meets Montana Ranch Wedding

From the photographer, Lauren Brown:  Jonas had one request for Jenny when she asked him about wedding planning. Just one. The couple lives in Austin, Texas but were getting married in Ennis, Montana where Jenny had spent so much time vacationing with her family – fishing in the summer and skiing in the winter. Jenny and her father George had taken charge of the wedding planning, and with the help of the talented team at Lukas Trudeau had put together a beautiful plan for a light and classic outdoor reception that would perch above Ennis on a high plateau and look out on the pristine Ennis Lake and surrounding mountains. Jonas’s one request was for a little piece of home, a little reminder of Austin, set to the Montana backdrop. Austin is well known for it’s music and festivals, and one of Jenny and Jonas’s favorite of these is the Austin City Limits festival, held yearly in Zilker Park near downtown. One of the hallmarks of the ACL festival is a giant picture frame, where friends meet and gather and re-orient. This is what Jonas wanted. A giant picture frame reminiscent of the one where he and Jenny so often gather with their friends. And so he built one. And perched on a plateau overlooking Ennis Lake and the surrounding valley and mountains in the distance, friends gathered and laughed and snapped photos under a giant white picture frame.

A Scottish Party in the Mountains

Gretchen & Duncan  |  September 6th  |  Steamboat Springs, Colorado

From the bride: We wanted a Colorado casual, welcoming and fun wedding day!  Our inspiration came from the groom’s Scottish roots and the wedding locations.

The weather was somehow perfectly glorious, like that moment with the sun rays in the beginning of the Lion King movie.

Everything about the day was personal. We deconstructed the traditional ceremony entirely and made our own. It felt very personal without being mushy. We wrote our vows together and said the same ones. I liked that because it felt traditional but personalized to us.

My favorite DIY detail from the wedding were the gold antler table settings and chandelier. The groom’s parents scored a huge lot of antlers in auction in Missouri and I spent many happy afternoons lovingly spray painting them gold. Everyone was skeptical but they looked AMAZING. We split them among the family after the wedding and they make great decorations at Christmas.

Looking back, we’ve never experienced anything like our wedding day—it is a cliché because it’s true. It was a day long adrenaline rush fueled by the biggest out pouring of love we’ve ever experienced. It rocked.

My advice: Hire a day-of wedding planner and have a clear budget.
