From the bride, Elizabeth: Our destination wedding was centered on the idea of bringing family and friends from Texas and Arizona together to celebrate our love for Colorado and for each other. Our love story began five years prior in Silverton so, Colorado was an obvious destination — we invited our loved ones to join us in the place we first fell in love for a small, intimate wedding in the mountains.
The most unforgettable memory was being surrounded by our friends and family sharing tears of joy as we pledged our love to each other with a breathtaking 360-degree mountain view with Mt. Wilson as the backdrop.
Our wedding design comprised a vintage theme with classic elements characterizing Colorado. We incorporated lace, mercury glass, and candle light with subtle shades of blush, ivory, and beige.
Each table illumined with mercury glass candle holders, softly lighting the room and providing a graceful romantic feel. The tall floral centerpieces with hints of pine cones and spruce branches gave the rustic room a very stylish, refined wedding atmosphere.
Our wedding favor included sweet caramel apples from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and S’mores for our Roast and Toast.
ADVICE: Always remind out of town vendors and guests to follow the main highways in Colorado; otherwise, Google Maps may send them for a wild ride across rugged 4-wheel drive mountain passes.
