From the event planner, Classic Creations:
Ralph and Sara love the outdoors, horses, and have a great modern style. We made sure we brought a bit of all of that to their elegant, rustic mountain wedding.

Sara and Ralph work for the Five Guys franchise, we played some of the theme off of that with our “One Guy + One Gal” theme and signature drink.

One of our fave details was the custom bar with a photo of the couples horses.  Sara said that it was one of the only times the horses ever ran together, luckily the photographer captured it during their engagement photo session.

We took the big ballroom and divided it up in to a lounge and bar section, a dinner and dancing section, and a wow this is the focal point of the room cake section!  We placed a sheer curtain at the back of the room with trees and tons of candles behind it to add to that outdoor romantic feeling, pulling back the curtain to reveal the absolutely stunning cake! I loved hearing the ooohs and ahhs as the guests walked in!

The cake design matched Sara’s gown.

Of course our “One Guy + One Gal” had to pay homage to Five Guys for bringing them together. A macaroon hamburger ice cream sandwich and churros fries in paper cones were served as a late night snack.

Carina & James  |  August 24th  |  Vail, Colorado

 

From the bride: After I visited Vail with James, I fell in love with the town.  I could not imagine having my wedding in a more beautiful location. A mountain destination wedding is so intimate and the views from the top of Vail Mountain are stunning.

 THE DECOR

I had no idea what to expect with the décor. When I walked into the room I started crying.  It was everything I could ever imagine and more.  Quite frankly, I knew the room was decorated amazing, but did not appreciate its beauty until I saw Jason and Gina’s photographs of the room.
