A Winter Destination Wedding in Colorado

From the bride, Elise:
Having a wedding in the mountains is truly breathtaking!  Kevin and I skied the morning of the wedding and said our vows to each other, just the two of us on the mountain in a quite location in the trees as it lightly snowed, it was magical!


I loved my bouquet, it reminded me of a mountainside covered in snow.


I wanted lots of dynamics and textures so I had all my bridesmaids pick out their own dresses with different fabrics and colors in the blueish green realm.

My advice: Don’t stress and reputable vendors know what they are doing. We didn’t have a tasting, our dessert was homemade, we never met our videographer until the day of our wedding, and we didn’t send a list of our favorite music to the DJ, but it all turned out perfect!
