A Destination Wedding at Ridgewood

Amy & Gabriel  |  July 29, 2017

From the bride: We met at an annual memorial snowboarding trip that happens every year in honor of a mutual friend that passed away. Gabe proposed to me on our first international trip we ever took to Chile. It was personal, beautiful and a moment I’ll never forget.

 

WHY DURANGO

We wanted to do a destination wedding but our families asked that we kept it in Colorado. We chose Durango because it is so beautiful, has great food, and there’s so much to do. Our friends and family had so much fun visiting a part of Colorado that many of them had never visited.

 

THE STYLE

We love simple and we love the mountains.  I’m slightly obsessed with skulls, specifically Day of the Dead art so there were little skulls in many parts of the whole day. We had a neutral colors, wood, and greenery with small pops of deep colors.

THE CEREMONY

The ceremony was the most important part to us. The reason why we were there. My older brother married us, all of our nieces and nephews held a role in the ceremony including ring security. For me, my favorite memory was walking down the aisle with my father to meet my soulmate. I seriously loved every minute of the ceremony. It was so incredibly special.

 

THE RECEPTION

Dinner was outside under the tent. The only time it rained was during dinner which was perfect and so beautiful. The sun was shining and the rain was falling and all the kiddos were playing in it.

 

We both LOVED all the dancing!

ADVICE

The day is about committing your life to each other and not about all the little details. If something doesn’t happen that you planned, no one else will know it didn’t happen except you so don’t worry about it.
