Of course, the thoughtful design by A Vintage Affair and sprawling blooms from Violet Floral Design only add to the pretty, and thanks to Connie Dai we’ve got it all right at our fingertips. So much more in the gallery right here.

From Jessica of A Vintage AffairWhen we began the design process, we knew we wanted to create something understated, romantic, and elegant for their mountain celebration. Caitlin and Jimmer chose the mountains of Estes Park because they wanted a weekend event, but also because Estes held a special place in their hearts. It is the place of their very first vacation together, and more since. It had also held so many memories for them and promised more in their future, starting with their wedding. This wedding was the perfect reflection of them as a couple – genuine and caring. They took every step to make sure everyone felt included and knew how much their presence meant to them. It was one of the most heartfelt days I’ve ever been a part of.

Caitlin’s Hayley Paige gown could not have been a better fit. The lace bodice with an organza overlay gave the lace a layered, delicate effect. Cocktail hour was held on a covered deck with sweeping views of the valley. Custom-made pink and white chiffon draping framed the beams. Chiffon linens covered the cocktail tables, giving them an airy and simple look. Bistro lights added the perfect ambiance, and also allowed for dancing to take place al fresco.

The reception was full of classic touches that included silver and crystal taper candles down the head table. Each place setting had a pink napkin with a menu tucked in, and the escort card was tied with delicate ribbon and a sprig of rosemary. The lovely cake table held a trio of small cakes adorned with flowers with a calligraphed mirror with a quote by Walt Whitman that read “We were together, I forget the rest.” For the guest book, guests filled out vintage Colorado postcards that the maid of honor is going to be mailing to the couple randomly during their first year of marriage. Even the cocktail napkins were a special detail – the bride’s mother sewed the linen napkins herself.

From Tricia of Violet Floral DesignThe moment I caught a glimpse of Caitlin and Jimmer’s color palette and floral vision, I knew we were going to be the perfect match! The timeless, romantic, soft style they had been dreaming of was something I had also been hoping to create in the mountains.

I cherish any opportunity to work with my dear and talented friend, Jessica, from A Vintage Affair. She has beautiful taste and we have a similar design style, so the mention of bursting Peonies and creamy Garden Roses had us both giddy with excitement. Rich fabrics and lush garlands were the perfect for the natural pergola nestled into the mountainside. The pathway to ceremony site was complemented by calligraphy signs and bay leaves. For the reception, there was a mixture of garlands and a gorgeous collection of mismatched vessels filled with a soft blend of Eucalyptus varieties, Sarah Bernhardt Peonies, Lillian Wild Peonies, Garden Roses and Ranunculus. Connie Dai Photography captured the day exquisitely. It is always a treat to have her skilled lens capture my work.

From Gold Leaf Event Design & ProductionThe country-themed Welcome BBQ was held at the Sopris Mountain Ranch Equestrian Center, a tranquil property featuring beautiful pastures and spectacular mountain views. Cocktail hour was held on a grassy knoll, where we were able to take advantage of the site’s natural décor using their trucks, tractors, hay bails, horses and epic western scenery, while adding our own rustic décor. Dinner was held in a large hay barn featuring naturally decadent wooden architecture. The barn was decorated with hanging café lights, Navajo rugs, and two long dining tables displaying burlap linens and navy runners, complimented by custom birch wood and copper vases, filled with ivory and light blue hydrangeas, and deep maroon wild flowers. Hickory House Ribs, southern style BBQ, grilled in front of guests, while Colorado-favorite bluegrass band, Tom Paxton and the Buffalo Joes performed country tunes, bringing guests to their feet to “do-si-do” during square dancing lessons (one of our favorite moments of the night).

Heartfelt Mountain Destination Wedding in Telluride, Colorado

I sat down to write this post as I do every night; I snuggled in on the couch, opened the submission and took inventory of the description. All very typical. Until I hit play. That’s when it changed. Before five seconds of this beautiful film from Creative Films passed, I was invested in this couple, their wedding, their marriage. There were tears. This film is a beautiful representation of what is obviously a beautiful couple (inside and out), and I won’t blame you one bit for hitting play more than once…

From Creative FilmsThe love that these two expressed to each other and the love that their families were able to share with them on their wedding day was reflected in the amazing backdrop of the mountains in Telluride, Co. Their faith shined over their weekend and it was evident that everyone who came to celebrate with them at the Peaks Resort had an amazing time hiking and exploring this amazing mountain and town. Anna-Louise and Nick are from Texas but hold the Mountains of Telluride in a special place in their hearts, and although it rained on the morning of their ceremony and they weren’t able to have the wedding at the top of the mountain, it didn’t stop them from having the most amazing day. Ana from Soiree Telluride and New Leaf Design designed a perfect weekend for this sweet family.
