Destination Beaver Creek
Molly & Marc | August 18th | Beaver Creek, Colorado
From the bride, Molly:
Our wedding was a destination wedding. We chose Beaver Creek because of its’ beauty, and for the personal history it has to us and to our family.
My late Grandmother passed her wedding ring down to my father to give to me when I got married. It was presented to me in an envelope, addressed in her handwriting. This was immensely moving and impactful, to both my father and to me.
A private yoga class was held on the wedding lawn the morning of the ceremony. It was incredible to have an hour of peace and quiet with my best friends before the day began!
I had no idea what Marc was going to be wearing on our wedding day. I wanted to be as surprised by him as he was by me, and the reveal was so worth it! I had all the faith in the world that he would be dressed impeccably, and he delivered!
Both the ceremony and the reception were held at the Westin. We were able to go directly from the ceremony site, to the patio for cocktails, and immediately inside for the reception. This feature was a major part of our choosing the Westin as our venue. We loved that our guests never had to concern themselves with transportation, but rather enjoying themselves and the evening.
My father walked me down the aisle to “I’ve Got This Friend” by the Civil Wars, the same song that Marc proposed by. Seeing Marc for the first time was incredible, and I loved having all of our loved ones in one place. My veil belongs to my sister-in-law Abby, who was unable to be at our wedding, after having her first baby only 10 days prior! She wore the veil in her wedding. The veil was also worn by Abby’s younger sister and cousin. Having gotten to share this with such wonderful women was an incredibly personal and important detail, and I was grateful to have gotten to share in this tradition. From the groom, Marc:
Molly and I have always shared a deep connection with one another. Our foundation is truly our friendship and we still to this day express how we would not have it any other way. We’ve always had an innate ability to talk for hours on end, about an array of topics. Our beliefs and morals are identical and our love for each other stems beyond just our friendship as well. I’ve always said that Molly has the greatest heart in the world and I truly respect and love the person that she has chosen to be. Additionally, Molly and I are constantly working to be better friends, people, neighbors, etc. We truly enjoy the journey that we are taking together and we can’t wait to see where it takes us.
Photographer: Frances Photography. Frances and her assistant were incredible to work with. Perhaps we just hit it off, but it was as though I had another friend in the room all day. She was nowhere and everywhere at the same time. She captured every moment stunningly, and we recommend her highly.
Venue & Food: The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa met all of our needs throughout our wedding weekend! They were accommodating and professional.
Event Planner: Artisan Events. Carolyn was instrumental in selecting and interfacing with vendors and keeping us calm while planning an out-of-town wedding.
Florist: Vintage Magnolia was able to turn my floral vision into a reality. They were completely spot on, and created such an beautiful final product. The girls were always helpful, accommodating, and on top of everything.
Cake: Sugar. Our cake was as beautiful as it was delicious!
Musicians: Funkiphino. They were such a blast! We felt like we had control over the music played, and that the band was incredibly flexible and laid back. They were engaging, current, and so much fun! It was almost impossible to stay seated!
