A Starry Night Wedding in Pagosa

Alli & Quinn  |  July 1, 2017

From the bride: When we came to visit for Christmas we were just so enamored with the mountains and how beautiful the night sky looked we thought it would be a perfect setting for the wedding.

 

We wanted to make sure to incorporate the beauty of where we were and to be true to ourselves and not have something too austere or uptight. We wanted to surrounded ourselves with the people we love in a place we love.

The ceremony was in the back yard of Quinn’s grandfather’s home. We had beautiful florals that accented the chuppah, soft floral accents by the seats and multi colored flower petals along the aisle. My favorite memory was the first time we locked eyes while I was coming down the aisle, and just the look on his face. We both cried when I got to the end of the aisle and saw each other, after a five year engagement we were both so happy for the big day.

The décor was rustic bohemian with a large wooden head table and wooden centerpiece boxes for the flowers and candles. All the colored glasses, dishes, and china were mismatched, colorful vintage pieces.

The dance floor was outside underneath the stars. We also had tons of lights hung outside to add to the ambiance to the dance floor. All the lights in the trees made everything feel magical.

The most memorable moment was doing the traditional hora where they hoist you up in chairs.  They almost dropped Quinn.

ADVICE

Don’t sweat the small stuff, nothing in the world is perfect and as long as you both end up married and happy then it was a perfect day.
