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 a bicycle bottle opener that said, “Let the adventure begin.”

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.

The reception was SO. Much. Fun!!!! We had a live band, and they were absolutely incredible. The dance floor was packed the entire night!

We had an ice cream bar with milkshakes, so yummy!

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 Rocky Mountain Teepee Wedding

From the bride, Carey: Paul and I really wanted our wedding day to be about us and our love for each other. We’re both very introverted and planning a wedding ourselves was very stressful at times. We wanted to share our big day with family and friends because they mean so much to us, but we had to keep reminding ourselves throughout the whole process that it wasn’t about them and it wasn’t about making anyone else happy but us.

WHY OURAY, COLORADO
Ouray was a special spot for both of us separately before we even started dating – I liked the hot springs and Paul loves to ice climb. I said Ouray was one of my favorite spots in my Match.com profile and he totally picked up on that. It was one of our bonding moments. Since being together we have traveled to Ouray regularly and have decided we really want to move there someday. We are currently in the process of trying to figure out how to make that work, sooner rather than later. We almost instantly agreed that it’s where we should get married. It’s such a gorgeous little mountain town and we really wanted to share it with our family and friends.

THE FIRST LOOK
The first look was so special and important for us. It allowed us to take a breath, recenter and refocus on each other, and have a really profound and beautiful moment just the two of us, before heading into the blissful revelry of the wedding.

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT
Driving away together as man and wife – best 25 minutes on the road ever!

MY ADVICE
Have fun and make it about YOU and nobody else. Don’t stress the small stuff, but do as much as you can upfront so you don’t have to run around like crazy people on the days leading up to the wedding.
