A Teepee Wedding in Ouray

From the bride, Carey: Paul and I really wanted our wedding day to be about us and our love for each other. We’re both very introverted and planning a wedding ourselves was very stressful at times. We wanted to share our big day with family and friends because they mean so much to us, but we had to keep reminding ourselves throughout the whole process that it wasn’t about them and it wasn’t about making anyone else happy but us.

WHY OURAY, COLORADO
Ouray was a special spot for both of us separately before we even started dating – I liked the hot springs and Paul loves to ice climb. I said Ouray was one of my favorite spots in my Match.com profile and he totally picked up on that. It was one of our bonding moments. Since being together we have traveled to Ouray regularly and have decided we really want to move there someday. We are currently in the process of trying to figure out how to make that work, sooner rather than later. We almost instantly agreed that it’s where we should get married. It’s such a gorgeous little mountain town and we really wanted to share it with our family and friends.

THE FIRST LOOK
The first look was so special and important for us. It allowed us to take a breath, recenter and refocus on each other, and have a really profound and beautiful moment just the two of us, before heading into the blissful revelry of the wedding.

MY ADVICE
Have fun and make it about YOU and nobody else. Don’t stress the small stuff, but do as much as you can upfront so you don’t have to run around like crazy people on the days leading up to the wedding.

Wedding Style: Steampunk

With Steampunk Snowdown happening in a few weeks, we thought it would be fun & fitting to share some Steampunk wedding inspiration!  Grab a copy of the 2015 Magazine to view a Steampunk-inspired wedding at the Powerhouse Science Center.

Steampunk Styled Wedding Shoot, Durango

From the style team: The inspiration behind Steampunk stems from mechanical gears, industrial light, tarnished metals, and inventive eyewear all juxtaposed against a more feminine, organic and whimsical atmosphere. This shoot features 5 vignettes all designed around this theme. Our tablescape included materials of silver, cedar, and brass, softened by blush florals, succulents, mustard linens, and curious magnifying glasses. The place cards were accented with miniature whiskey delights and skeleton keys. The lounge was a luxurious spread of mustards and rich browns surrounded by vintage trunks and cameras complete with elegant sofas and wingback chairs. Organic and rich desserts sat sweetly atop mismatched platters surrounded by draping floral and old bedsprings adorned with tantalizing tags. “let them eat cake.” Whiskey poured out of timeworn decanters by our charming mustached bartender flows into heavy glass tumblers garnished with pomegranate, citrus, and sprigs of rosemary and mint. Last but certainly not least, our ceremony featured a 6-foot chalkboard with an airy quote and majestic ship framed in by stacks of suitcases and more vintage trunks. Our bridal party was dressed to the nines with the ladies in ethereal gowns and dramatic make-up and the gentlemen in dapper suits and top hats.
