Mountain Wedding Elegance in Tennessee

From the Photographer: JoPhoto: Samantha and Jack tied the knot over the Fourth of July weekend in the Smoky Mountains. Samantha loves everything that glitters and shines, so she added a beautiful rhinestone belt and bracelet along with a cathedral veil to her stunning gown. The ceremony was filled with hundreds of stunning florals. Their puppy, Lilly, wore a blush pink floral collar and a cute sign that read,  “Daddy, here comes mommy”.  The reception tent was overflowing with lush florals.

A Rocky Mountain Destination Wedding

Jennifer & Peter  |  August 1st  |  Vail, Colorado

From the bride: We wanted the wedding to feel upscale while keeping in touch with the Colorado mountain setting.  We created a mountain logo that incorporated our initials, which was used on our welcome bags, cocktail napkins, the reception dinner menu, escort cards, etc. We also customized the menu to utilize as much local food as possible to keep with the Colorado feel. We chose a color palette of white, peach and grey.

We lit a unity candle during our ceremony.  We enjoyed the symbolism of our two families coming together.  My parents used the same candle on their wedding day, which made it even more special.

Looking out at our friends and family in the chapel.  It was overwhelming and amazing all at once to feel their love and support.

My favorite detail was our signature cocktail, the “Southside.”  This is our favorite drink to share in the groom’s hometown of Oyster Bay, NY and it brought a little bit of the east coast to the mountains.

 A few deer joined our outdoor cocktail hour, which was an unexpected, fun moment.

My mom and I created the escort cards.  They were in the shape of lift tickets with our mountain logo. We hung them from metal tags on a chic yet rustic wooden board.

Table décor included long seeded eucalyptus garlands interspersed with white florals, candles and antlers.

We named our tables named after Vail ski trails. A Rocky Mountain Destination Wedding in Vail, Colorado

I can still picture our first dance and the father/daughter dance perfectly when I hear the songs played.

A White Tie Mountain Wedding in Utah

Sarah & Luis  |  August 5th  |  Canyons Resort, Utah

From the bride: We wanted a white tie wedding, very formal and very traditional. We both felt very strongly that marriage is an expression of love and commitment to each other. It was not something to be entered into lightly, and keeping with tradition, it was also my parents 36 wedding anniversary. Historically, the people we know who have had a more traditional wedding, have stood the test of time.

Being from a long line of southern women. Engraved invitations were the only option. I did embellish them with ribbon and a wax seal. I hand wrote every outer and inner envelope my self. The coolest feature is we now have the copper plates for each piece of the engraving. They will be framed.

For the ceremony, we wanted an arch wrapped in vines, flowers, and crystals. I created the chair backs with love birds.

My Uncle George performed the exact ceremony performed at my parents wedding, from the same book. The book was my great, great grandfathers ceremony book – it is over 100 years old.

I only wanted one floral centerpiece. All white hydrangeas to fall off the edge of the table and pool on the floor.

Our favors were hand printed scarves that matched our wedding linens in custom boxes with custom notes inside. The boxes were embossed with white flowers and vines.

We used floating chandeliers and dangling lights under the tent.

My advice:

1.  Enjoy every minute of the planning process; I had the best time with my mother planning our wedding. There was no drama, no issues. And I had found my dress with my mother; it was a very special perfect moment, one she had imagined since I was little. My mother cried when we found the dress.

2.  Hand write all your envelopes and every thank you card including the envelopes. After all it might be the only time in your life you do this…. And labels are not personal.

3.  Learn the phrase, “I don’t know… call the wedding planner.”
