A Magical Mountain Wedding

From the bride, Stephanie:

THE INSPIRATION
We were fully inspired by the mountains! We love being deep in the woods and wanted to share that magical experience with our guests! Our colors were navy blue and tan, and our decor was a lot of wood pieces and candles, creating the romantic woodland fairytale we envisioned. Almost everything in our wedding was made by my mom!

THE CEREMONY
We wanted the ceremony to completely reflect us, and our love. We both wrote our own vows in very special locations a week prior, and the day of the wedding our officiant had them printed into a binder so that we could read them to each other while he held it up.

As we were announced husband and wife, the wind began to blow, and my veil wrapped around our heads as we kissed for the first time! It was so adorable!

We had already told our photographer, Katie, and the wedding party that we were going to take a few minutes alone right after the ceremony. This was one of the greatest moments of the night! Before seeing anyone else, we got to enjoy time together for the very first time as a married couple! We cried like crazy, and kissed and hugged! But most importantly we got a chance to be together, alone!

LOOKING BACK
I am so thankful that we had two years to plan our wedding. It seems so long, but in the end, it was worth it! Taking the time to really make each detail the way we wanted, while also having the time to realize what we don’t actually need. So many things go in and out of style, watching my Pinterest feed change so often made me truly discover what I loved most, and what was a trend I was trying to follow.

ADVICE
Make a list of what is actually important to you, and stick to it. An open bar and great food matter a lot to us, so that is where we spent the money. If it looks and feels the way YOU want it to, you nailed it!
