Wedding Style: Rustic Glam

This week’s wedding style combines rustic glam with vintage touches in a neutral color palette. The seven bridesmaids are dressed in blush, taupe and metallic.  The gorgeous bouquets combine pine cone and greenery elements to reflect the season. You got to adore the fleece hoodie worn by the couples dog, and we are pretty sure this is one of the happiest grooms we’ve ever seen!  View more images and read the entire wedding day  story over on Luxe Mountain Weddings.

From the Magazine: A Sci Fi Romance

Ou & Lance  |  July 7th  |  Mancos, Colorado

From the couple: We chose Durango for our destination wedding because the area is very beautiful and mountainous, and it was important to us to hold the wedding outside and to incorporate the environment as a backdrop.

Durango Weddings Magazine - 2014 issue

We composed the ceremony script ourselves, with the wording inspired by Ancient Greek ritual, Vulcan marriage rite and a few key points from our shared knowledge of fundamental physics.

The idea was to keep the ceremony focused toward our exchanging vows and completing the unity ritual, which was mixing wine (actually single malt scotch and a unique type of strong rice wine from China).  We linked arms to drink, which is a tradition from Chinese wedding ritual.   Durango wedding - Sci Fi Romance in Durango

We were pronounced husband and wife with a physics inspired blessing: “May the dimensions be with you… Always”.

Our most memorable moments were being able to take a little alone together, while having our “couple” photos taken with various backgrounds around the property.

 Quotes from Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy were handwritten on all the cocktail napkins.

Our Advice: Relax and take time to enjoy other things besides thinking about the wedding.  Plan and communicate all the details/schedule with your wedding party.

A Handmade Durango Wedding

From the photographers, Kyla & Wesley of Photo Divine:

We have known Brittany since the day she was born and it was an honor to be asked to photograph her wedding. Being long time family friends, we were guests as well as photographers. Shortly before the wedding day, Kyla was put on bed rest during her second pregnancy. She was unable to photograph, but could not possibly miss celebrating Britt and Aaron on their special day! The lovely Hailey King assisted Wesley for the day in Kyla’s place. With the help of their friends and family, Brittany and Aaron, pulled off the entire wedding DIY style. Brittany’s dad, made the altar out of carved aspen and the created name tag holders on the tables. Brittany did all the bouquets in artificial cactus.  What a great way to create your ideal wedding, spend time with your loved ones and save a little cash for more important things like the honeymoon!!!A Handmade DIY Durango Wedding A Handmade DIY Durango Wedding A Handmade DIY Durango Wedding A Handmade DIY Durango Wedding A Handmade DIY Durango Wedding
