Elegant Summer Bachelor Gulch Wedding

As a future fellow mountain bride, when photos like these from Brinton Studios come across my desk, I get extra excited. With a backdrop as breathtakingly beautiful as these Colorado mountains, and a couple of lovebirds as adorable as these two, I’m smitten from the start. And then I came upon this Pnina Tornai dress and it’s the absolute icing on the cake. See all this and more right here!

From Brinton StudiosIt can be a little nerve racking meeting a couple for the first time on their wedding day. In Lindsay and Tyler’s case, it was a breeze! I mean just look at these two!! To say they made our job easy was an understatement. It was great to get some perfect timing on light and to be with these two amazing people all day. The Ritz Bachelor Gulch served up another perfect day. We just adore working there! Thanks Lindsay and Tyler for being so wonderful!

From The Bride… Tyler and I met at Cooper Middle School and attended Langley High School together as well. It is far from your high school sweetheart story, though I did fall deeply in love with Tyler quickly after meeting back up with him and some friends at the Georgetown waterfront in DC. My best friend was in town and my high school friend Nick Zahra insisted on meeting her. Nick brought Tyler along so Tyler and I ended up being the 3rd and 4th wheel. The rest is history!

Tyler supported me in pursuing my dream of riding horses again and even agreed to buying our first home together in the horse country of Middleburg, Virginia. It was no surprise that he used our first horse purchased together to propose on my birthday. It turned out to be the best day of my life to that point. He had shipped my birthday present to my barn so I wouldn’t open it and insisted we grab it before dinner. He said I needed to march up to the hay loft to open my present. There he had set up champagne and hors d’oeuvres overlooking the sunset. He gave me a very nice camera for my birthday and encouraged me to look at the picture he took when ‘trying it out.’ I was so confused as there was a picture of my horse, Indian Princess, with a sign tied to her neck. I was shocked, excited, overwhelmed, and beyond happy when I read what was on the sign, ‘will you marry me?’ ‘Yes’ was the only word that crossed my mind.

Albeit to say, Tyler helped in making my life the most perfect fairytale that I could ever imagine living. We are lucky to have both been brought up by beautiful families. They aided in each decision along the way and we can’t thank them enough. My sister, mother, and I went to Kleinfeld Bridal in New York to pick out my wedding dress which was designed by Pnina Tornai. We chose to use Rose Petals in Vail, CO as our florist. Kyle Hodge Films recorded our video. We choose to have our rehearsal dinner at Sweet Basil in Vail, CO. Inga Cox did our hair. Michele McKamie did our makeup.

From Bluebird ProductionsWe adored working with Bailey and Paul and their families to create a picture perfect day! From the moment we heard that Bailey and Paul got engaged on Paul’s family ranch in Texas, we knew that incorporating rustic yet sophisticated elements was a must. Their wedding took place at the Roaring Fork Club outside of Aspen, Colorado on the longest day of the year. Their wedding highlighted the natural beauty of Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley with the rustic nature of their love of spending time on the ranch. The love and joy was absolutely palpable throughout the entire night from the guests first arrival until their grand departure.

Their ceremony, overlooking the Colorado mountains, blended the perfect touch of femininity in color, texture and details with masculine hints here and there. Guests moved into the Roaring Fork Club and adjoining tents for cocktails, dinner and dancing the night away. Bailey and Paul’s antlered monogram was ever-present throughout the pre-wedding communication, events and at their magical wedding reception.

From the beautiful Bride… For most of my adolescence, I remember daydreaming about the man with whom I would fall in love with. How much of a fairytale it would be to spend everyday with someone who loves you just as much as you love them. Having someone to enjoy movies next to and a best friend to share inside jokes with.

Being a newlywed, all of these things are simply amazing. Although there is one thing that will always stand out and will never get old to me. Getting to say the word husband as often as I please.

I was just a 22-year-old girl, fresh out of college, and working for my dad. I had a great group of friends, wonderful and supportive family, and a fun job. I did not even feel like anything was missing. That was until I met Kyle. He is the most genuinely selfless, kind-hearted person I have ever met, and after the first moment we spent together, I knew I never wanted to go another day without him. The moment I saw him, I could picture him standing at the altar waiting for me on our wedding day. Fast-forward five years, and my dreams came true.

Since I was a little girl, I always knew that I wanted to get married on my dad’s ranch in Aspen, Colorado. I could not wait for June 14, 2014. My dad had been battling cancer the prior two years, and I felt like the luckiest girl in the world that he kicked it and was able to walk me down the aisle. I have never felt more beautiful and radiant than I did that day. I am so fortunate to have had my best friends and family there to support me. There are too many wonderful memories to highlight a favorite, but to sum it up, the whole day was pure magic.

From Bluebird ProductionsWe loved assisting Sage and Kyle with their romantic Aspen wedding. We began working with Sage shortly before her darling son, Brixton was born. She had always dreamed of the perfect fairytale romance and wedding. This day became a reality in June 2014 due to the collaboration of many vendors as we mixed a classic and traditional feel yet still appropriate to the outdoor and mountain locale. From an acrylic chuppah that allowed guests to see past the structure to the gorgeous mountains behind, a boxwood hedge covered with mirrors serving as an escort card “wall”, to a large tent full of soft and feminine details, each element of Sage’s wedding was crafted with guest experience and beauty in mind.

Romantic Colorado Forest Wedding Inspiration

We feel like we’ve stepped into the pages of a woodsy fairytale romance! With the natural beauty of Colorado’s Grand Mesa National Forest setting the stage, this wedding inspiration shoot from K Robinson Photography makes our hearts flutter over the gorgeous draping garlands, ribbon flourishes and that most amazing looking, luscious chocolate cake. Fall in love with all the pretty right here.

From K Robinson PhotographyA band of talented ladies worked together to bring their vision of an earthy and romantic Colorado forest wedding inspiration to fruition. The idea was to highlight the dramatic beauty of the Grand Mesa National Forest by adding pops of color and whimsy.

Forest-foraged greens and branches were added to the seasonal flowers used to create a draping garland for the moss covered table, boat, and a lush bouquet as well as decoration for the model’s hair. Hand written menus, name cards, and invitations added a rustic and romantic feel to the vintage table settings. The vendors pooled together their own styling details including the handmade wooden orbs, and accessories while adding new details like stunning ribbon from Silk and Willow as well as oars borrowed from a shop in Grand Junction and a deliciously deep chocolate cake locally made to add the finishing touch. The models were an actual married couple who sweetly offered to be a part of the shoot.

This inspiration shoot took place on Kelly of 3 Leaf Floral Design’s family property set deep in the woods up in the Grand Mesa National Forest.

Inspired by the Mediterranean Color Palette

Inspired by nature and the Mediterranean coast, Ashley Sawtelle captured an environment overflowing with cool tones and vibrant Bare Root Flora blooms. With a refined mix of eclectic dinnerware and tile place cards, this collaboration is fresh yet elegant. From the subtle blue bodice of the A & Bé Bridal Shop dress to the stunning citrus accents a la Calluna Events, the gallery is the place to see it all, here!

From Ashley SawtelleWe wanted to create an environment inspired by nature and the old world charm of the Mediterranean coast – cool tones of green and blue paired with the vibrant colors of the surrounding flora, botanicals and fruit.

Blooms and textures in our deep fuchsia color palette, citrus accents and natural wood grain elements were incorporated against a clean background for an updated look. Azure Silk & Willow ribbons bound the bouquet. And the table scape evoked something old and something new with tall tapered candles, a refined mix of eclectic dinnerware pieces and tile place cards. Gold accents in the flatware, candlesticks and candle holders grounded the palate.

The vendors in the collaboration contributed unique design pieces that tied in with the overall theme. Twinkle & Toast provided the tile place cards, escort cards, sign and invitation suite and designed a custom pattern throughout each piece. Sugar Breck used real ribbon from Silk and Willow on the base of the cake. And hand painted tile cookies added a sweet touch to the theme.

Eclectic Hive provided a Indian wedding wood table and aged, mismatched wood chairs. They also provided the sheepskin rug which balanced out the raw concrete floor and white brick background.

Alchemy Mineral Blends used light, spring colors from their new collection to show a fresh and dewy completion for our bride against her dark, Mediterranean features. A simple gold and diamond wedding band and diamond and gold studs were provided by Angie Star Jewelry.

We chose an elegant, yet simple two piece wedding dress from Rebecca Schoneveld and veil by Sara Gabriel, both found at a & bé Bridal in Denver, CO. We loved the subtle blue in the bodice of the dress which tied in the blue from the rest of the shoot.
