From the stylist: Christina Stevens, CS Bridal Styling:

The inspiration behind this shoot was to take you through the intimate peaceful moments a bride has before the pandemonium that hits once she embarks on the grand march to her soon to be. We wanted to showcase our bride, Kadie as she patiently awaits the arrival of her groom. She has chosen to opt for a quiet elopement style destination wedding. Not wanting to skip the traditional fare that one looks forward to while planning a wedding, they decided on a pristine mountain location. They dreamed of an intimate celebration at a luxury hotel/venue for their weekend escape; with careful consideration and selection of their vendors to give them everything they had dreamed of.

From the bride, Carley:
We choose a mountain wedding because Jared and I both grew up in Colorado and have a strong connection to the outdoors. Passion for the mountains has been a part of both our lives from a young age and we couldn’t think of a better place to join our two lives together.

Details-1167We played non-traditional ceremony music, blue grass! We wanted to make sure the ceremony reflected us, and blue grass was a great representation of that.  We also did a stone blessing: we placed a stone that we had collected form our favorite locations on everyone’s chair during the ceremony and asked them to give a blessing or wish to use. We collected them at the end and now have a beautiful glass container in our home with the stones.
