Bliss on Durango Mountain

From the bride, Sarah:  As we began to plan our wedding, Kevin and I looked through two years worth of the Durango Weddings Magazine and we loved getting ideas from other gorgeous weddings. I also attended the Durango Wedding Expo and really enjoyed it as it helped me connect with vendors.

We love bright colors and we live a light-hearted life and wanted our wedding to reflect that.

 Kevin has been in the honey business, at Honeyville, all of his life. We didn’t want to overdo the bee theme so we had a subdued bee theme that could be found on programs, signs, favors and handmade glass bees in the bouquets.

 The ceremony was at Boyce meadows with the Twilight Peaks in the background. The aisle was lined in handmade purple pomander balls, and purple and fuchsia rose petals. It was the first rain day of the summer in Durango, fortunately the rain stopped just in time for the ceremony to start!

My favorite detail was our favors. We loved the fact that both sides of our families worked hard on them and it was a special touch not only for our guests, but for us. The favors were Espresso Chocolate Buzz made by Honeyville, and hand blown honey spoons through Adagio Art Glass.

My advice:  One of the biggest helpers for us, and anyone involved with the wedding, was communication! We sent out a detailed itinerary and never had confusion from our bridal party. It kept that part of the wedding stress to a minimum.
