From the bride: We held our small and intimate wedding at Antlers on the Creek Bed & Breakfast. The large home was filled with the sweet scent of homemade cookies and warmth. Our room for a few nights was attached to the home outside, giving us our privacy. The bedroom looked out to the gazebo, a field of grass and a pond with a small brook with the soft sound of rushing water filling the air. It was absolutely breathtaking.
I wanted a traditional white wedding. My mother is Hindu so I had henna done on my feet and hands.
A white carriage with two black horses waited in front of the Bed and Breakfast to take me down the grassy hill to the aisle.
The most memorable moment was my parents crying. My father is a huge softy, and my mother, who I have only seen cry once in my life, was weeping.
Weddings are a lot of fun and everyone should do it. Even though it’s costly, and you may think it’s not worth it, it is! Do something small and intimate, or something big and fun, no matter what, it will remain in your heart and memory.
Venue, Food, Cake, Lodging: Antlers on the Creek B&B took care of everything including decorating the ceremony and making an EXTREMELY delicious cake.

From the bride: I wanted a big elegant mountain wedding, he wanted a backyard wedding. So we came up with a big campout wedding.
April’s Garden beautifully dressed the arbor in flowers and lined the walkway with Eucalyptus.
We held the ceremony in a meadow off of Old Lime Creek Road. We had all our guests standing, since it was going to be a short ceremony. It rained for 30 minutes as everyone was arriving, but then 10 minutes before I was to go down the aisle, the sun came out and it made for a picturesque ceremony with the shining mountains as the backdrop.
We held the reception at Chris Park campground. This was the perfect spot for our campout wedding. It has a beautiful pavilion with picnic tables for 152 people. A private location that everyone could access and a big fire pit and outside game areas.
We served blueberry cake doughnuts.
I loved having most of our guests staying at the campsite so they could really relax and enjoy themselves all night.
Looking back, I would have hired a wedding planner sooner! We could not have done it without our wedding coordinator.
THE WEDDING TEAM
Planning Resource: The Durango Weddings Magazine helped me pick my vendors, like April’s Garden and helped me see the latest trends in the Durango area for weddings. I sent the Magazine to my family and friends helping me with the wedding to see ideas I was wanting for my wedding. I also got a lot of inspiration for things at the Durango Wedding Expo and I found my photographer, Jenne Anne who helped me set up my whole wedding.
Flowers: April’s Garden. They exceeded my expectation! Colleen was a huge help.
