A Fall Mountain Wedding with Black & Gold Accents

From the bride, Monica: Our wedding was more on the nontraditional side. My wedding dress was black, which is what I had always wanted. I love the fall and the mountains so I wanted our wedding to have both. We also wanted our family to experience the beautiful Rocky Mountains.

The Bouquets

My parents are antique dealers, so my mom found brooches at estate sales and my dad made them all into bouquets.

The Ring

My ring is a black diamond set in a halo of white diamonds, just perfect!

The Ceremony

We tied the knot in Estes Park surrounded by the Rocky Mountains and the fall colors.


Don’t let anyone influence your decisions with planning. Plan your day how you want it!

The Reception

The dancing was so much fun. It was important to us that our wedding had a laid back feel so that our guests could enjoy themselves and it felt like we really captured that.
