An Autumn Wedding in West Virginia

Danielle & Joshua  |  October 24th  |  Lansing, West Virginia

From the bride: In the beginning planning stages, I fell in love with so many different styles.  A few times during the early (and middle) stages of planning, I committed to styles I thought I wanted, mainly due to others influences. None of these styles “felt” right though and around the halfway mark, I finally decided to go back to the drawing board and go with my gut and chose a color palette of goldenrod, ecru and grey.

I wanted to do something different with my flowers.  Silk flowers were an obvious no and real flowers are gone in a few days and I wanted my flowers to last longer.  I thought the Sola flowers were simply perfect and the Craspedia gave my wedding the modern edge I was looking for.  What’s really cool is that I still have my bouquet and Josh’s boutonniere today.  They’re in the same condition as the day we wed.

Our dog, Bingo (a Chihuahua-Chinese Crested mix) was such a handsome boy in his bowtie and, while slightly neurotic during the ceremony, he was a shining star during the family photos!

Our ceremony took place outside on the upper deck at Adventures on the Gorge. We had an amazing view of the New River from the mountaintop.

I searched for hours to find quotes that would define our relationship and the love we have for one another.  I wanted depth and real meaning.  Not just a few fluffy words in a frame.

Looking back, truth be told, I would’ve eloped; on a remote island; Fiji perhaps.

Pretty in Blue in Utah

Alyssa & Mike  |  June 6th  |  Wolf Creek, Utah

From the bride: I was going for a simple, elegant look that would fit with the rustic, mountain setting we chose to get married in.

LoganWalker0120 LoganWalker0121LoganWalker0122 LoganWalker0123 LoganWalker0124 LoganWalker0125On my bouquet, I carried a charm with a photo of my father, he passed away 13 years ago.

LoganWalker0126Our flowers were gorgeous! Lots of blues and rustic touches – loved the spirally twigs and birch accents and the peacock accents in the ceremony arrangements.

LoganWalker0127 LoganWalker0128 LoganWalker0129My favorite memory was that the ceremony was extremely personal. Having a close friend officiate and writing the ceremony together with him was the best decision we ever made. It was so personal, romantic and emotional, it was hard to avoid a few tears.

LoganWalker0130 LoganWalker0131We used vintage license plates for table numbers. This turned out to be one of my favorite details! The license plates states had meaning for the people seated at the respective tables – Connecticut for my college friends for example, as that is where we went to school. Also, Mike, is a HUGE car guy, so this was another nice way to bring a little bit of him into the decor and details. We were even able to use the license plate from his late grandmother’s car at his family’s table, which was a very special touch.

LoganWalker0132 LoganWalker0133The groom’s cake was a replica of Mike’s 1967 Mustang he has had since he was a teenager.

LoganWalker0134My favorite reception memory was our first dance. We took lessons secretly for a few months prior to the wedding, so our choreographed little routine was a big surprise to everyone and a lot of fun to finally pull off!

A Winter Wedding in the Rocky Mountains

On a beautiful Colorado blue sky day, these high school sweet hearts said “I do” at one of our favorite mountain venues, Devil’s Thumb Ranch.  A nature-inspired color palette of greens and creams with pops of navy blue perfectly complemented the snow covered landscape. An intimate ceremony overlooking the Continental Divide followed by a cozy reception inside the beautiful Board Axe Barn was perfectly captured by Brinton Studios.
