A Modern Mountain Wedding in Vail, Colorado
From the bride, Lindsay: Tim and I grew up skiing and snowboarding, hiking and camping in the mountains. We have always loved the mountains and knew we had to get married surrounded by the place that truly felt like home. The rustic, yet elegant feel that you get when you are in the Colorado Mountains is like nothing anyone can explain.
We really wanted our wedding to express our love for the mountains as well as our personalities.
The sun was shining and there was not even a cloud in the sky when I walked down the aisle to “Here comes the Sun” by the Beatles. It was truly the most magical day to get married.
We truly felt like we were on top of the world!
For the décor, we wanted the mountain modern feel expressed with touches of the clean white Aspens and bright yellow and grey patterns. We also thought that the mint green of the succulents brought out the little extra touch of modern that we loved!
All of our signs were made from real aspen trees. We used a wood burner to personalize each detail including the bride and groom drinks, guest book, favors, and our “Mr. and Mrs.” Chair signs.
The Jewish Horah was truly memorable and being tossed in chairs by our family and friends is something we both will never forget!
We made our favors for each of our guests. We had a Lindsay spice and a Tim spice. Each one was personalized with a note with cooking ideas. They turned out wonderful and had a spice of love to them!
One of my most memorable moments was sitting with our wedding party next to the fire pit realizing how lucky we are to be surrounded by the most amazing family and friends on a perfect day!
My advice: Do not be afraid to make your dream wedding come true and always remember the reason why you are getting married.
