On a freezing cold day, Christine & Mitch met on the red chair at Castle Mountain, Canada. Three years later, they held their ceremony under the chairlift loading area where they met.
Christine & Mitch | May 23rd | Castle Mountain, Alberta, Canada
From the bride: We met on the red chair at Castle Mountain on a freezing cold day. We were the only two people left on the hill and did a few runs together. Mitch came back the next day and we skied together almost every weekend for the rest of the winter. We moved to Arizona to attend school, then onto Chicago. We legally married at the courthouse last year in Chicago, but because of demands on our time from school we were never able to have a wedding. We finally got the time off and decided to celebrate at the very place that with met, Castle Mountain.
I chose to have a very bright bouquet to stand out against the natural background.
We held our ceremony under the chairlift loading area where we met. We had a close friend officiate and chose the words that we wanted him to say ourselves. My favorite part was our daughter and dog running around us the entire time.
I made the cake toppers to look like our family out of clay.
After dinner, we had our first dance outside on the grass and then everyone changed into comfy cloths and we had a big bonfire and dancing.

Carrie & Sean | October 4th
From the bride: My favorite things and my family were my inspiration for our wedding. I wanted romantic country chic with a navy blue, mint green, and light coral color palette. I brought in furniture and items that belonged to special people in my life like my mother, grandmother, and great grandmothers.
I made the centerpieces, all of the signs, a kid’s table and candy table and the jam party favors. We had my great grandmother’s dresser as a guest book and gift table and my great grandmother’s hutch as a favor table. The guest tables had burlap table cloths, white lanterns, and assorted decorative bottles with flowers in them.
My advice: Make sure that the wedding and all of the details are what you want. Have fun with DIY and don’t worry about the small stuff. Let your family be involved if they want to be, they might appreciate you thinking of them. If you hire a wedding planner, let the planner do the whole wedding. Don’t do part DIY and part wedding planner.
