Minimalistic Mountain Inspired Shoot

From the photographer, Jamie Beth Photography:  There is a misconception that minimalistic decor can’t be bold. We disagree! We wanted something classy, simple and elegant… something that featured the natural mountain backdrop of Colorado, but also highlighted the green and white color palette of the spring season in the mountains. Subtle touches of rich wood decor and just the slightest hint of gold made this pretty package absolute mountainside perfection.

Rainbows, Sunsets & Unbelievable Views at Canyon Crest Lodge

Katie & Tom  |  June 4, 2016  |  Pagosa Springs, Colorado

From the bride:
We chose Pagosa Springs as our wedding destination because Pagosa was our first vacation together. We went skiing at Wolf Creek over spring break in 2015. We would highly recommend a wedding Pagosa because everyone was very accommodating and the hospitality is second to none. Plus there was plenty of things to do – white water rafting, hiking, shopping, ziplining, and of course dining options.

THE CEREMONY
The ceremony was held outside overlooking a breathtaking view of the canyon. The décor was fairly simple and consisted of flowers and hanging baskets lining the aisles and pergola. People could not believe how beautiful and romantic it was.

FIRST DANCE
My favorite reception memory was our first dance. We took weeks of dance lessons and had prepared a choreographed dance to Ed Sheerans, ‘Thinking Out Loud.” It was so much fun preparing with Tom and when our special day was here it made it so special to dance together. It felt like we were the only two people in the room and was so romantic. We still love doing our dance together.

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT
The most memorable moment was when there was a triple rainbow over our reception tent. All of our guests came out of the tent to look and watched as our photographer caught the magical moment.

LOOKING BACK
One thing that I wish that we had done was hire a videographer. I so wish I had the day documented.

A Snowy Christmas Wedding

From the bride, Sarah: Daniel and I are both avid skiers. We knew we wanted to get married in the mountains, it’s our favorite place in the whole world. We wanted a luxurious après ski wedding with a warm holiday glow and our closest family plus a few friends who were crazy enough to make the trip.

THE DAY OF
We had a blizzard the day of our wedding. The most beautiful thick white snowy blanket that fell steadily for the whole day and into the night, it was magical!!  A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah A Snowy Christmas Wedding in Utah

THE RECEPTION
Our reception was filled with gold glittery candles, red holly berries, brown pinecones on deep green pine boughs, and aspen tree accents. I felt like I was outside in the mountains—but inside of the coziest lodge glowing with the most lovely holiday sparkle!

ADVICE
Be chill. It’s your one and only dream-come-true day to celebrate the love of your life and the beginning of the rest of your forever together. At a certain point you let it go and just go with it because the day is going to be as wonderful as you allow it to be. Our day was wonderful and I did my best to soak up every moment
