Real Wedding: Anna and Sam - Rustic Mountainside Elegance
February 17, 2009
By: eddye

If you had asked Anna what style of wedding she was planning, she would have replied, " ... a french country, comfortable, rustic, elegant, mountain-type vibe ..."

Anna told us, "I was able to think of a lot of words that described the weddings that I liked, but actually explaining what I meant by that would have been impossible without all the beautiful images I found on your site to show what that meant to me. Between those images, our great vendors, and talented friends and family, it all came together and we had a wonderful wedding full of happy people and beautiful things."

Now that's what makes our day!

As soon as we saw this wedding from Little Black Book member, Jamee Photography, we knew that Anna had achieved her dream day. Not only is the wedding just so darned picturesque, there is also an intangible free-and-easy spirit about the images that resonates true and absolute joy. Not to mention ... all of the detail elements were spot on!

LOVE the natural beauty expressed every step of the way ... tables (and some of the flowers) were done by family friends, master gardeners. Anna's uncle built the huppah. Wedding flowers were by Little Black Book member, Bella Fiori.

Anna's gown was by R0mona Keveza, the maids wore Vera.

Sam & Anna's beautiful wedding took place at Beano's Cabin on Beaver Creek Mountain, Colorado. Funny name for a resort! Their website says, "Not exactly roughing it." A few more credits ... Wedding Day Coordination by Little Black Book member Calluna Events; Cake by Mountain Flour; Photo booth from  A Custom Look; Reception paper pieces from The White Aisle.

Anna wrote to us after her wedding ...

"I wanted to write and thank you for all the help I got planning my wedding from Style Me Pretty. From the very beginning, I downloaded a whole bunch of inspiration boards that I loved (like an embarrassing number), and took them with me to meet the florist, the cake person, our day of coordinator, everyone. I also purchased a lot of what we ended up using from your recommendations and vendors. You have featured such great vendors with creative and beautiful products. Our menus, place cards, and table numbers, our cake toppers (from Cotton Bird Designs), we registered at Bodanna, our guest books were from Yellow Owl Workshop. When we had a last minute printing need, Rebecca from The White Aisle came to the rescue and turned around some of our stationery in hours. Much of the event was inspired by things I found on your website, so I just wanted to thank you for helping to make planning so fun."

Jamee, their photographer, is one of our Little Black Book, best of the best Colorado wedding photographers. A huge thanks for sending us Sam & Anna's heart-warming wedding!

And to Anna, a huge thank-you for your kind words. At the end of some pretty long days, it's just what we need to hear.
