A Colorado Mountain Wedding

From the bride, Mollie:
Our wedding was truly magical with the clouds allowing the rays of sun to shine through, the mountains as our backdrop, and the a group of loved ones watching over our every word (and a few spectators from the deck above).

KatieCorinne20Our first look was so simple and intimate in so many ways.  We got to see each other for just a few moments, enjoy our love and each other before the chaos of the day began.  I took that moment to give Eric cufflinks that had belonged to my grandfather, which meant so much to both of us and although our photographer was there photographing away, it was one moment that day where we could breath and be together without any distractions.

My favorite detail was the aisle décor. This was like having tiny wildflowers emerging from a mossy valley.

We filled satchels with lavender for people to toss as we recessed down the aisle.  KatieCorinne25 KatieCorinne26We had a seed ceremony with seeds of Colorado wildflowers that had meanings behind them that symbolized the words we thought to be the most important parts of a marriage. 


KatieCorinne28During our vows, every eye in the crowd was wet with tears, and we were just barely holding on to our wits as we each read our own vows.

KatieCorinne31I took the time, enjoyed every moment and never let myself get stressed for any reason.

KatieCorinne32We brought in an aspen tree for the reception that was our “wishing tree”.  The next day, the tree was taken to the Waldo Canyon burn zone and planted to help reforest the area.  

We planted tiny succulents in tiny pots for our favors. KatieCorinne33


Our band was the highlight of the whole reception. Everyone danced the night away.

My advice: Start early, and choose a task or two a week, this way when the week of your wedding comes you can sit back and relax.  You’ll have the time to enjoy all your friends and family that have come to visit you for this one moment.   Mollie & Eric’s RECOMMENDED VENDORS
