From the bride, Sarah: Daniel and I are both avid skiers. We knew we wanted to get married in the mountains, it’s our favorite place in the whole world. We wanted a luxurious après ski wedding with a warm holiday glow and our closest family plus a few friends who were crazy enough to make the trip.
THE DAY OF
We had a blizzard the day of our wedding. The most beautiful thick white snowy blanket that fell steadily for the whole day and into the night, it was magical!!
Our reception was filled with gold glittery candles, red holly berries, brown pinecones on deep green pine boughs, and aspen tree accents. I felt like I was outside in the mountains—but inside of the coziest lodge glowing with the most lovely holiday sparkle!
Be chill. It’s your one and only dream-come-true day to celebrate the love of your life and the beginning of the rest of your forever together. At a certain point you let it go and just go with it because the day is going to be as wonderful as you allow it to be. Our day was wonderful and I did my best to soak up every moment

Pulled from the print edition of Luxe Mountain Weddings, this editorial shoot was inspired by marsala, the 2015 Pantone color of the year. The talented team of Rachel Havel, Pink Paisley Events & Lale Florals pulled inspiration from the deep shades in pomegranates, blackberries, and burgundy to contrast against the powder snow in the Rocky Mountains. For the tablescapes, the team incorporated seasonal fruits, berries and walnuts. The florals included hot pinks, burgundy, currant reds and soft subtle blues to bring out the marsala hue. Lots of pretty to inspire the mountain bride.
