A Spring Garden Wedding

From the photographer: It all started with a dress. We were so inspired by this gown that we knew we had to use it in an innovative and refreshing way. We were dreaming of a perfectly pink, whimsical, refreshing spring garden inspiration shoot. We started showing “Lindsay” off to many of our vendor friends and we knew we wanted to work with people who were just as inspired as we were. Somehow, this pretty little number nestled it’s way into all of our hearts and created this rare form of magic. The magic grew and grew. Our shoot seemed to take on a life of it’s own and evolved right before our eyes. We started referring to it as our “Through the looking glass” shoot, as a little nod to “Alice In Wonderland.” Like Alice, it grew and evolved so much throughout the planning process. Before long, we had a cake that matched the print of the gown, Alice In Wonderland inspired treats, paper cranes, paper lanterns and collectible rabbits involved in the shoot. Everyone’s heart became intertwined in this day and it quickly became very personal for each and every one of us that there were. Now, there is something to be said about working with vendors that share the same vision as you. Since it was so near and dear to each of our hearts, the enthusiasm of the day was absolutely infectious.

A Spring Destination Wedding in Steamboat Springs, Colorado

From the bride, Jen:
Pascal & I met and fell in love in Steamboat so we could not think of a better place to get married.
We both love the winter and went back and forth about getting married in the snow. We thought a winter wedding might be too risky for our out of town guests so we chose June 17th! To our pleasant surprise, there was a foot of snow on top of Mt. Werner on our wedding day. We got the best of both worlds, a beautiful spring ceremony with a touch of winter at our reception!

I loved our flowers! The vibrant colors made the day so bright and colorful. Luxe Mountain Weddings Luxe Mountain Weddings Luxe Mountain WeddingsThe day of our wedding it was raining on and off all morning. At about 4:30pm when we were supposed to get on the gondola to head up the ski mountain, the wind was too wild to go up.  As we were the first wedding of the season, they had to get the buses out and do a trial bus ride up the mountain. With ample snow, it was touch and go if the buses could even make it up the mountain! To our relief, we were able to be bussed up to the reception site.  It was a wild ride and added to the little things that made our day so memorable and perfect!
