Bridal session must-haves? A stunner dress, a knockout bouquet and of course, a breathtaking location. This slice of inspiration crafted by Kristin Sweeting checks all the boxes and the combo is getting all the hands-raised emojis from me. How fun would it be to twirl in one of those Carol Hannah dresses?! Need more convincing that you should do a bridal session? Hop on over to The Vault.

From Kristin SweetingI loved putting together this shoot to show two different bridal looks with the stunning backdrop of the mountains. Carol Hannah’s dresses are show stoppers and Park Floral put together the most beautiful bouquet. I also love seeing brides trying some different colors for their wedding day attire, and the blue in Oceane by Carol Hannah is the perfect subtle pop of color.

They Tied the Knot in Their First Date Spot and it was Magical

Saying “I do” in Aspen is meant to be amazing, but saying “I do” in the exact spot you had your very first date? Magical. Which is why Michelle and Andrew spent weekend after weekend diving into clean up projects to make their meaningful locale all their own.  The results? A drop-dead gorgeous soiree planned to perfection by Bluebird Productions with amazing details throughout. See it all captured by Becky Schwartz here in THE VAULT.

From Bluebird ProductionsMichelle and Andrew are truly some of the sweetest people (and most IN LOVE people) we’ve come across! Their wedding was a perfect labor of love. They chose to get married in Aspen as Andrew was raised here and, as a couple, they have spent a ton of time in the Aspen area together. Their wedding was at the Smuggler Mine, a historic mine that is a huge part of Andrew’s family history in the area. The moment they got engaged, they immediately knew they wanted to get married there. Their first date was even at the mine (a tour of the mine!!). For them, it was the perfect venue: unique, rugged but elegant, has expansive and amazing fews, has great meaning and history for them and is the most authentic “Aspen” venue one can find.

From the Bride… We spend countless Saturdays at the Mine doing various clean up and building projects- planting flowers, building the arbor, painting fences, and laying gravel. I wouldn’t trade these memories for anything. It made our wedding day feel so magical because we built the magic that our guests felt at our ceremony. We were sharing with them a piece of our lives that means so much to us, and I loved that.

From Bluebird ProductionsEmma & Nish’s Aspen wedding was the perfect reflection of everything that makes them the fabulous couple they are. The couple exchanged vows and danced the night away at Emma’s childhood Aspen home. Looking up at Pyramid Peak, this home is one of the most splendid locales in Aspen and a place so many of Emma’s friends and family had visited over the years. Nish’s heritage filled the space just as equally though; the décor, floral, tent, and attire all were an expression of Nish’s Indian culture.

Guest arrived at their residence and wound their way over the hill to Emma’s backyard. A sitar player filled the glen of trees with music and guests were greeted with chai tea as they wondered through a sanctuary dripping with marigolds to the ceremony site and its jaw dropping backdrop. Emma and Nish’s first child, their adorable dog Harper, was part of the processional along with bridesmaids, who wore a variety of bright burgundy dresses, and groomsmen, who wore jackets tailored in the traditional Indian style.

Guests found their escort cards hanging in the air interspersed between marigold chains and then entered the tent with a custom silk lined ceiling of gold stars and mirrors and cascading gold lanterns. Emma’s custom dress was two pieces, which made it easy for her to switch her chiffon floor length skirt for a playful tulle tea length reception bottom. She and Nish flawlessly executed a choreographed first dance that quickly morphed into a Bollywood dance where all of their bridesmaids and groomsmen ran onto the floor and joined along with all of the steps they had learned to celebrate the couple!

The menu was designed to show a perfect melding of the families’ traditions. There were three buffet stations with aptly paired selections: Indian, Colorado, and Southern (for Emma’s Georgian roots). Being part of their celebration was a true honor. Both families could not have been more kind or supportive of the marriage and the celebration of Emma and Nish’s love and commitment to one another. If there’s one wedding that a planner wants to do over and over again, it’s this one!
