Kelly & Erik | May 26th | Beaver Creek, Colorado
From the bride, Kelly:
Erik and I both grew up in Colorado and have always loved the mountains and skiing together. Beaver Creek was the perfect location because it gave us the mountain wedding we were looking for, but was also easy for our guests to travel too. Plus Beaver Creek is such a great setting because not only is it one of the best spots in Colorado but everything is within walking distance or shuttle service so none of our guests had to drive and there were so many activities for them to enjoy. We had guests go golfing, hiking, fishing and to the BBQ Festival that weekend.
My wedding dress (Monique Lhuillier) was a blush pink color so it inspired the colors for the flowers, invitations and other details.
My dad passed away several years ago so I had a locket with a picture of him tied to the bouquet. I also wrapped the bouquet in a piece of my mom’s dress, that was my something old.
I took our save the date which was a custom illustration of Beano’s with our names and wedding date on it and made it into a poster which everyone signed as our “guest book”. I love that because now I can frame it and hang in our home and always remember our special day and all the fun notes from our friends and family.
My advice: Do not caught up or stressed over all the little details. In planning a wedding there are so many things that you can fixate on and you have to keep in mind the bigger picture and what the wedding is about. Alos, on your wedding day, take a moment with your new husband and stop to take in everything, because it goes by way to fast.
