A Rustic Meets Modern Colorado Wedding

From the bride: We were married in a meadow with the mountains as our backdrop. We adorned the ceremony structure with clusters of sunflowers and a crystal chandelier. During the ceremony, one lonely cloud showed up and dumped on us so umbrellas were hastily handed out as we exchanged vows under the raindrops. Fortunately, as a bride, I was so happy to be getting married that I giggled instead of cried.

Love at 11,444 feet

Kaley & Zach  |  September 15th

From the bride:  Zach is originally from the East Coast and I am from the Midwest. We met in Colorado four years ago. Not only did we fall for one another, but we also fell in love with Colorado. Thus, it was important for us to have the wedding in Colorado. We wanted to share the place that we hold so dearly to our hearts with the most loved people in our lives, our guests. We chose to host a fall wedding, which is our favorite time of the year. The wedding date fell on the peak weekend of Colorado’s signature gold aspen tree foliage.

 We had a neutral color scheme with accents of green and yellow to incorporate the earth tones of the mountain and Aspen trees.

Before the ceremony, we had our first look and read our hand written vows to one another. This allowed for intimate moments that were sacred to us. In addition, we spent time taking pictures with just the two of us before the wedding party met us. The time together eased our nerves and alleviated pressure before the ceremony as we had time to be together to show our love and appreciation for one another and reflect on the meaning of the day.

My cousins wrote and co-officiated the ceremony, which made it tremendously personal and meaningful for Zach and me. Our wedding readings were from our favorite book, The Alchemist.

 The flower girls carried small boxwood wreaths.

 An extra special moment was when our dear friend surprised us with the most unique 36” diameter Pin Oak wood slab monogrammed with our wedding logo. We used this as a focal creation for the décor of our reception.

 Instead of doing the routine order of events, we decided to mix up the order of our reception. As soon as we were announced to the guests, we went to the middle of the dance floor and cut the cake and had our first dance. After the first chorus of our first dance, we invited all guests to the dance with us. It was a huge surrounding of love. After the first dance, we jumped right into the dancing for a few songs to start the night off on the right foot. The guests seemed to really like the mix-up events.

My advice: Every wedding is beautiful and there is no wrong or right way to do it. Be true to yourselves as a couple, be mindful of the meaning of the day instead of getting lost in the details, and absorb all the love.
