Au naturel is the perfect way to describe a wedding that needs not an ounce of flair and the secret weapon behind this Colorado affair is a group of crazy-talented vendors that let the true beauty of Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch shine. Details like florals with the perfect fresh cut feel by Sweet Pea Designs, a Bride and Groom beaming from ear to ear and light-filled images by Kelli Lyn Photography that capture every ounce of this intimate day with even more to pore over right here in the full gallery.
From the bride…Before we were even engaged, Jaron and I always knew we wanted our wedding to be intimate. We debated eloping, but decided it wouldn’t have been the same without our families. As avid skiers and Denver residents, we knew we wanted to show our loved ones a glimpse of our lives in Colorado with a mountain wedding. The Ritz Carlton in Bachelor Gulch is one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever been and was the perfect setting for our nuptials. While we had an opinion and a vision on how we wanted our wedding to be, I found we got our vendor’s best work when we allowed them to take creative liberties. We hired our good friend to design the invitations and paper goods and with the direction of “purple” and “vintage” she produced a beautiful package of modern, mountain inspired invitations complete with vintage Colorado postcards stamped with RSVP info and customized hand-stamped and grommeted leather tags. Our florist translated our vision perfectly with gorgeous mountain inspired flowers that projected both a laid-back, yet formal vibe. The entire weekend was a beautiful time (even perfect weather) for our families to get to know each other better and for us to spend quality time with our loved ones.
