A Serene & Romantic Mountain Wedding

Jennifer & Sam | September 21st |  Park City, Utah

From the bride: We got engaged in the mountains, and we couldn’t think of a more perfect place to exchange our vows than the beautiful backdrop of Utah’s scenery. It was just perfect for us. Serene, peaceful and majestic.

Purple is my favorite color, always has been, after all, it’s the color of royalty!  I wanted something simple and chic, elegant but not overplayed.  A little eccentric but sophisticated.  For example, my dress had unfinished hemlines but the sparkle of the belt gave it the WOW factor.  I wanted the whole wedding to be that way.

My mom sewed a handwritten note from my grandmother, who passed away in 2002, into the hem of my wedding dress. It was a card she wrote to me in 1988 that says’ “My sweet Jennifer, always remember how much I love you.”

Having my dad walk me down the aisle was something I had been looking forward to my whole life. My dad is a very special person to me.  He has always been the most important man in my life and it was very sentimental to have him by my side on my big day.

 The cake was white fondant with edible silver glitter. I love glitter to a fault.

Looking back, the day went by WAY too quickly. We had a packed itinerary and I wish that we would have had more time to spend with everyone! I also wished we would not have rushed off so quickly the next morning on our honeymoon. We would have preferred to stay a few days with the family at the resort and THEN leave for the honeymoon.

My advice

1. Have realistic expectations. A wedding is a celebration of love. It is all about marrying the man of your dreams; it is NOT about the show. At the end of the day if you are married to your Prince Charming, then the day was a success. THAT is what matters. Don’t get wrapped up in what other people want or what you see on pinterest. Talk to your fiancé, figure out what you want together and do that. You will be much happier in the end, I promise.

2. Invest in a good photographer and videographer. When all is said and done, it will be the most tangible way you’ll have to remember your day.  Dinner will get eaten, flowers will die, the music will go quiet, memories will fade, but your photos and videos will last forever.

3. Take the time to soak it all in. Take moments, before you put on the dress to breathe.  Put on the dress and give yourself a second to reflect.  Close your eyes, say a prayer and reflect on why you are where you are.  Hug your bridesmaids before you leave for the ceremony. Tell them how much they mean to you.  Stop at the top of the aisle… take a deep breath, look around.  The day will go by so quickly, taking the time to have quiet reflective moments is the best thing I did.  Hold your husband’s hand. Don’t let the true meaning of the day get lost in the chaos.  Take selfies, do the photo booth, put on your dancing shoes and have some fun, you’ve waited your whole life for this.

A Rustic Mountain Wedding at Snowbasin

Holly & Tyler  |  September 27th |  Huntsville, Utah

From the bride: We visited Snowbasin during our first year of dating and instantly fell in love with the beautiful views. After being engaged, we decided on Snowbasin in a matter of minutes.

The mountains were our inspiration during the entire planning process.

The day of our wedding, the weather decided not to cooperate. We had planned to have our ceremony at the top of the mountain with the miles and miles of mountain views as our backdrop, but we had to make a last minute choice to move the ceremony inside.

 I loved our cake stand. We ordered a tree trunk online that had our names burned into the side along with our wedding date. We plan to turn it into a small table for our bedroom.

Our guest tables had a lantern with dried lavender around the base of a lit candle and wine corks scattered around the center of the table. We used wine bottles painted black as our table numbers. Each table was named after a ski resort.

Our favors were little bottles of Vermont maple syrup because we met while in college in Vermont.

My advice: The day goes by so fast, try to enjoy it. Don’t let people tell you how your day should go, make it your day.

Venue & Caterer: Snowbasin Resort. Wonderful to work with. We had the most amazing food I’ve had at a wedding. I would book another event here just for the food and amazing views!

Colorado Country Charm in the Mountains

From the bouquet to the linens, we are absolutely loving this berry infused color palette!  Designers Rami Carter with Pick Me Weddings and Cheri Taunton with Southern Charm Weddings and Events created an elegant upscale feel in a rustic barn on Strawberry Creek Ranch, a working equestrian center and ranch in Colorado. Photographer Sarah Roshan captured all the pretty details including the beautiful mountain setting.
