A Romantic Country Wedding from Shutterfreek

Carrie & Sean  |  October 4th

From the bride:  My favorite things and my family were my inspiration for our wedding. I wanted romantic country chic with a navy blue, mint green, and light coral color palette. I brought in furniture and items that belonged to special people in my life like my mother, grandmother, and great grandmothers.

I made the centerpieces, all of the signs, a kid’s table and candy table and the jam party favors. We had my great grandmother’s dresser as a guest book and gift table and my great grandmother’s hutch as a favor table. The guest tables had burlap table cloths, white lanterns, and assorted decorative bottles with flowers in them. 

My advice: Make sure that the wedding and all of the details are what you want. Have fun with DIY and don’t worry about the small stuff. Let your family be involved if they want to be, they might appreciate you thinking of them. If you hire a wedding planner, let the planner do the whole wedding. Don’t do part DIY and part wedding planner.

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.

Wedding Destination: Durango Mountain Resort

Ashley & Travis | September 20, 2104 | Durango Mountain Resort

From the bride: We visit Durango every year for our anniversary trip and always have a blast so we figured why not get married there. We really wanted to get married outside and knew Durango would not disappoint for scenery.Wedding Destination: Durango Mountain ResortWe wanted to keep everything simple and really portray who we are as a couple. We didn’t want the focus to be on the elements of a wedding rather we wanted it to be about the wedding itself and what it means to us. Most of all we wanted everyone to feel relaxed including ourselves and have FUN!Wedding Destination: Durango Mountain ResortWedding Destination: Durango Mountain Resort Wedding Destination: Durango Mountain Resort Wedding Destination: Durango Mountain Resort Wedding Destination: Durango Mountain Resort Wedding Destination: Durango Mountain Resort My advice: Try not to get caught up in the details. Pick the things that are really going to matter to you years from now and focus on them. Most of all don’t stress and enjoy your day!!
