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!

My advice: Enjoy planning and when your wedding day comes, let the day play out, enjoy every minute…even if things don’t go as planned.

Love Under a Full Moon in Steamboat Springs

From the groom, Tim:
Our wedding day was  FUN!! No stress, seriously!  Earlier in the day, the dudes went for a Mountain bike ride followed by cliff jumping at King Soloman Falls…epic Colorado day!  The ceremony setting was perfect. The groomsmen and I biked down the aisle. During the ceremony, we signed our marriage license with Stevie Wonders ‘signed, sealed, delivered’ playing in the background. From the bride:
I know it sounds cliché, but it was honestly the best day of my life. It was truly magical! I spent the entire day getting ready with my brides maids at Columbine cabins.  Laid-back  and funky  is how I would describe my husband and I and the theme we were going for.

The ceremony took place on a picturesque ranch near Steamboat Lake with 360 degree views of the some of the most amazing scenery in Colorado.  Our guests sat on hay bales covered with blankets.I wrote the entire ceremony and we both wrote our vows. It was incredibly personal and meaningful for the both of us.After we said “I do” we biked into the sunset on our tandem cruiser.

The reception took place in a tent. It was beautiful with hanging lights, a dance floor and was just very natural and beautiful.  We got engaged at the Jersey shore so we had salt water toffee sent to us from a store down the shore that we put on the dinner tables. We also had waffles and ice cream for dessert, which is a jersey shore favorite of mine. We purposely got married on a full moon because we met on a full moon, got engaged on a full moon and therefore thought it would be really romantic.We danced till 2:00 am and ended the night back at our cabins with a camp fire! It was the perfect day!RECOMMENDED Vendors
