From the bride, Sarah: Daniel and I are both avid skiers. We knew we wanted to get married in the mountains, it’s our favorite place in the whole world. We wanted a luxurious après ski wedding with a warm holiday glow and our closest family plus a few friends who were crazy enough to make the trip.

THE DAY OF
We had a blizzard the day of our wedding. The most beautiful thick white snowy blanket that fell steadily for the whole day and into the night, it was magical!!  A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah

THE RECEPTION
Our reception was filled with gold glittery candles, red holly berries, brown pinecones on deep green pine boughs, and aspen tree accents. I felt like I was outside in the mountains—but inside of the coziest lodge glowing with the most lovely holiday sparkle!

ADVICE
Be chill. It’s your one and only dream-come-true day to celebrate the love of your life and the beginning of the rest of your forever together. At a certain point you let it go and just go with it because the day is going to be as wonderful as you allow it to be. Our day was wonderful and I did my best to soak up every moment

From the wedding planner, Verge Events:
Kellie and Randy wanted a comfortable lunch reception for their guests who traveled from all over. We chose a palette of red and dark teal to accentuate the gardens of The Farm at Old Edwards. Teal is a special color for Kellie, a gynecologic oncologist, as it is the ovarian cancer awareness color. The beautiful ceremony gardens are beautiful on their own so we chose to accent specific key areas.

Hung down the aisle were sweet canning jars filled with a spectrum of red flowers and tied with teal ribbon.

Canning jars with red flowers were hung with teal ribbon at various lengths from the pergola. A Perfect Wedding Day in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Highlands North CarolinaThis wedding was not just the joining of Kellie and Randy in marriage but the uniting of a family. Kellie and her 2 year old son Luke walked to meet Randy who was waiting halfway down the aisle before walking the rest of the way to the altar as a family.

From the bride, Kristin:
My wedding day felt magical- it snowed! And since I’m from Alabama (and had a destination wedding at Beaver Creek)- that made it so special. Christmas time is my favorite time of year- it has always been magical for me- so I couldn’t imagine getting married at any other time.  All our guests were greeted with a gift bag that included: a CD with our favorite Christmas music, gourmet hot chocolate, peppermint swizzlers, salted caramels, and a Christmas ornament.   I wore a Jenny Packham bolero and red Valentino pumps with my white dress and I had a piece of lace from my mom’s wedding dress wrapped around my bouquet.  Jonathan & I  snowboarded down the mountain in our wedding attire.

We are seriously crushing on this amazing wedding from Frances Photography at the beautiful Viceroy Snowmass.  From the ceremony to the reception, LMD Productions weaved a rich color palette of tangerine, fuchsia, red, gold and purple into every decor element while The Perfect Petal added vibrant florals that tied the luxurious design together. The talented team at Table 6 Productions created a magical day for this lovely couple.
