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.

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!

A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah

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!!  A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah

THE RECEPTION
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!

ADVICE
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
