Caroline & David  |  June 17th  |  Sun Valley, Idaho

From the bride: My parents have a vacation home in Sun Valley, so it has been a second home for both of us. My family has tons of memories growing up in Sun Valley, so it is a really special place to all of us. Dave and I share a huge love for the mountains and outdoors, so it was an easy decision when choosing our wedding location, as Sun Valley offers just about every outdoor activity around (hiking, fishing, mountain biking, camping, skiing, etc.)

We wanted the feel of our wedding to be western, natural and rustic. Trail Creek has an old log cabin feel, and overlooks the mountains, so the venue fit our personalities very well. We tried to create a neutral color scheme with lots of green, light grey and beige, to fit the outdoor setting.

Our first look was definitely the highlight of the day. Seeing each other for the first time, after all the anticipation was indescribable.

We loved seeing all of our plans come together (i.e. the ceremony layout, flowers, décor, and reception site). It was so special to have all our closest friends and family in the place that means most to us.

From the Magazine: Anne & Derek

Derek and I both live and work a considerable distance from many of our friends and family and extended relatives. We were concerned with “playing favorites” and decided to go with a neutral location that was secluded enough to be considered a real vacation. Telluride was the perfect mix of an exciting adventure and relaxing destination vacation in a place that is truly a piece of heaven on earth…

Sarah & Shane  |  August 27th

From the bride: Growing up in Colorado, my dream was always to get married in the mountains. We love to spend time in the mountains year-round, with Vail and Beaver Creek being our favorite mountain towns. I wanted a classic, elegant wedding with a mountain feel. I love flowers so, we incorporated flowers into every aspect of the day. Our color palette was a mix of coral and light pink with lots of greenery to contrast with the beautiful mountain views. We also included gold accents throughout the ceremony and reception. Read more below…

From the Magazine: Krystle & Ben

From the bride: We had planned for a green spring May 1st wedding. Originally, it was supposed to rain all weekend, so I came to terms with it and bought 50 umbrellas for our guests and was going to try to make the most of it. Those umbrellas were later returned after the rain changed to snow, which was a very unexpected but great turn of events.

Sam & Kyle  |  June 11th

 

From the bride: Kyle and I met in the funnel cake line at Colorado State University (CSU) where we both attended. We dated for about seven years before he FINALLY proposed! On the morning of my birthday, we walked around at the CSU oval throwing the ball for our puppy, Bailey. I reached down to get the ball and saw the ring!

WHY COLORADO

We absolutely love the Colorado mountains. We both love to ski, snowboard, hike, etc. We’re also Colorado natives.

THE CEREMONY

We got married at a private house north of Silverthorne. It was BEAUTIFUL! Looking to the west, you could saw Buffalo Mountain and a field of purple flowers. We didn’t plan it, but the flowers perfectly matched our wedding colors.

My most memorable moment was seeing my husband cry as I held his hands. This was the first time that I have ever seen him cry. I held it together but just lost it after that.

ADVICE

Plan everything together! Break in your shoes several weeks before the wedding – I didn’t do this and my feet hurt so bad. I ended up taking off my shoes after the ceremony. If you have a destination wedding, rent a house so everyone can be together and have FUN!
