Rustic Mountain Simplicity
Kim and Gregg are the definition of nature lovers. A couple who are both Colorado transplants, they knew it was important to share their love of the mountains and outdoors with their family and friends. Since almost all the guests traveled from outside of Durango, the couple chose the Silverpick Lodge for guests to enjoy a cozy, mountain lodge experience. Kim, who is a professional landscaper, grew all of the flowers for the lodge decor and rehearsal dinner.
The two exchanged vows in a beautiful meadow of the San Juan Mountains under an alter that was positively glowing with shimmering fall foliage of the aspen, the quintessential Colorado tree. The cocktail hour following the ceremony included bales of hay with quilts and pillows to relax on, lawn games to play such as bean bag toss, horse shoes and ladder ball, all while friends of the bride and groom played old style bluegrass music to set the mood.
A display table of family photos greeted guests in the lobby and even included a framed keepsake cocktail napkin that the bride had written and passed to the groom, asking him out on a first date!
The reception was held at the Durango Mountain Resort with a spectacular view of the San Juan Mountains. The bride kept the design focus on rustic mountain simplicity with elegant candlelight ambiance. Guests danced the night away and loved the wild west photo booth that was just like the one the couple used for their save the date card.
