From the bride, Samantha: We are from Miami, Florida and got married in Sun Valley, Idaho – where we got engaged! It was so great to have all of our closest friends and family in the mountains together – so far removed from our everyday lives – with tons of activities to do together.

The whole day was really personalized to what Adam & I wanted. We’re very casual and laid back and we just wanted to party in a beautiful setting!

The weather wasn’t working in our favor all weekend.  It didn’t rain all summer and of course, our wedding day was expecting rain. We had to order a tent for the ceremony last minute.

We held the ceremony outside underneath a clear tent with the ski mountain as the backdrop. We are Jewish so we were married by a rabbi, with a traditional Jewish ceremony under a chuppah.

When the rabbi asked if my husband takes me to be his wife, his response was “yes” instead of “I do”! It was so typical of him and lots of laughter ensued!

I loved the way the florals turned out. The chandeliers were outfitted with flowers and greenery to match our color scheme and gave the tent a warm feeling.

Most memorable moment: Our first dance! We took dance lessons, which is SO out of character for the two of us but the end result was pretty comical.

ADVICE: I would encourage everyone to make decisions together. Adam and I did a lot of the legwork ourselves and it was fun! Definitely stressful at times, but remember that it’s just one day in your life…and to have FUN with it.

From the photographer: The Norah Jones hit song, “Come Away with Me” was the inspiration for this fall styled shoot set against a mountain backdrop in McCall, Idaho. Our focus with our design concept was to enhance the natural beauty of the landscape while using color palettes and textures that would work in fall.

The flowers were truly a work of art by Flowers At Will.  The combination of lush greens and foliage, dahlias, chocolate cosmos and roses embodied our vision for the organic, romantic look we wanted.

The dinner table was soft and romantic and included vintage touches. A lace runner was layered with another runner made of fur for a soft yet lodge-inspired feel, while gold flatware and gorgeous silk napkins tucked in metal fox rings added a touch of elegance.

Our Moscow Mule and cigar bar was a way to personalize a traditional cocktail hour, complete with perfect cold-weather pairings and mini-eats.

The look for our bride and groom was also soft and slightly vintage; the bride wore a champagne gown with a taupe lining designed by Laneige Bridal and the groom looked dapper in his soft gray suit.

From the bride, Paige:
Getting married in the snow was magical and reminded us on how we fell in love playing in the snow while snowboarding on our first date. Having the mountain views, trees and snow as our backdrop made for amazing photo’s that we will cherish for life. Being so close to nature made the entire event extremely romantic. It literally felt like a dream!

Rosewood01My bouquet was cascading with white roses, lambs ear, eucalyptus and rosemary.

I personalized my gown with a custom made sash and wore Sorell snow boots. Rosewood02 Rosewood03

Erik wore a boutonnière charm with a picture of his father to show remembrance.

Rosewood05The bridesmaids carried beautiful clear glass candle lanterns down the aisle that created a romantic vibe in front of the fireplace, where the ceremony took place.

Eriks ring would not go on… so he pushed it on himself and I said “its’ not coming off now”, everyone laughed it was a sweet ceremony moment.

Rosewood04Our guestbook was a wood snowboard that now hangs in our living room.Rosewood09Our first dance was perfect, romantic and unforgettable.My advice: Do your research on your vendors. Having the “A” Team on my wedding day made the entire event smooth and stress free. It’s easy to enjoy yourself when you know you’re in good hands.
