A Romantic Proposal in Pagosa Springs

From the bride-to-be, Kaley: For New Year’s Eve, we were staying at a cabin in Pagosa Springs. Matt told me to get dressed up for dinner and as I came downstairs, a friend stopped me and said she had to read something to me. She showed me a picture of Matt and I and read a love note from Matt that was written on the back. I was totally caught by surprise! She told me to follow her and she led me from friend to friend throughout the house and they all read me love notes from Matt as they held up photos of the two of us. By the time I made it to the back door, I was teary-eyed and knew what was going on. I opened the door to the back patio and saw Matt standing there, all dressed up. He told me he loved me and that he wanted to fall asleep with me every night and wake up to me every morning. Then he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him!

Eternal Bliss at 10,200 Feet

Melissa & Grant  |  July 19th  |  Durango Mountain Resort

From the bride: We wanted to get married on top of a mountain and at a resort that was intimate so all our friends and family could come together for a few days and bond. We did not want the “wedding blur” that we have heard brides talk about after their wedding. We wanted a few days with everyone, together, in one intimate and beautiful spot. Durango Mountain Resort was family friendly and affordable and had unbeatable mountain views.

The Durango Weddings Magazine helped me locate great vendors and relieved a lot of anxiety.  I loved reading the stories and experiences from other couples.

I watched the clouds and lightening roll in about 60 minutes before the ceremony started, I was worried the storm was going to hit. However, the sun broke through and the weather held up. It was beautiful and magical at 10,200 feet!

We wrote and read our own vows and had a “tree planting ceremony”.  We have planted the tree in our yard.

My uncle made the wooden holders to place our lanterns and flowers on for the centerpieces.

Looking back, Durango is so beautiful and off the beaten path, I can’t imagine getting married at any other place. I still smile at the weekend memories.
