A Simple & Intimate Mountain Ceremony
Cassie & Ryan | August 3rd
From the bride…
I always envisioned a mountain backdrop for my wedding. I also wanted it to be an intimate, low-key event celebrating with the people I loved most.
We chose a beautiful wooded outdoor site at Purgatory Ski Resort. This incorporated the mountain backdrop and provided convenient access for our families.
The ceremony site was a peaceful aspen and evergreen grove at Purgatory Ski Resort. We opted for no additional décor, just the natural beauty. It was a quiet, intimate location for a perfect ceremony.
When I arrived at the alter, our officiant joked about how quickly I walked down the aisle. I can’t walk anywhere slowly!
We returned to our Air BnB with our families for dinner catered by Zia Taqueria. Music was playing from a playlist I had prepared. We ate and drank together as a newly joined family. There was no pressure to be the center of attention, and we just enjoyed one another’s company.
This is YOUR day; include the personalized details that make it YOUR wedding, and don’t sacrifice them to make someone else happy.
