A Colorado Mountain Destination Wedding

From the bride, Heidi: I wanted to compliment the beauty of Colorado and the mountains with a lot of natural colors and tons of plant greenery because I love plants. I also just wanted a timeless look; something that would be beautiful for years and years.

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT
I really loved our first look. It was exciting and also calming to see Mac for the first time. I feel like it broke the ice and allowed me to just relax and enjoy the whole day.

THE CEREMONY
Our ceremony was held in a field with the gorgeous Rocky Mountains as our backdrop, big open sky, and lots of trees; the location really felt secluded.  The aisles were decorated with tree rounds cut to various heights with lanterns on top. Mac’s dad married us and gave a wonderful message. Every part of the ceremony just felt so personal.

FUN MEMORY
On our walk down the aisle as a newly married couple Mac stopped and kissed me and then carried me the rest of the way. That was pretty cute and got a nice crowd reaction.

THE RECEPTION DECOR
We decorated each guest table with ivory tablecloths, trailing greenery, lanterns, and  candles.

THE CAKE
I loved our cake, which was decorated with a mountain and tree outline. It tasted SO good! I had my brother bring me a few extra pieces after we’d made our exit because I wanted to eat more!

MY ADVICE
It’s possible to have a really amazing and perfect day with a short period of planning. We got engaged in February and married in July and we were able to get everything done and set up in a relatively short period of time. We were just so excited about being married and the wedding is only one day. Don’t get me wrong it’s the BEST day, but I think it’s just as important to plan and get excited for the marriage as it is for the wedding.

Also, I recommend having a social time prior to the wedding, especially if you have a lot of out-of-town guests (or you yourself are coming from out of town). We opened a period of time after our rehearsal dinner to invite anyone who was around to come hang out. It just took a lot of the stress off the wedding day because people already had some time to mingle with us. Mac and I didn’t feel like we were being bombarded with people at the wedding.
