While there’s no denying that this entire celebration is stunning with a capital S, it’s the little details that stand out the most in Tamara Gruner’s gorgeous pics. The feather grass, the fabulous Jimmy Choo shoes, the insanely dreamy dress… all coming together for a wedding in Beaver Creek, Colorado that is far from rustic. It’s no surprise then that Calluna Events orchestrated it all, with The Perfect Petal lending their floral expertise and La Tavola making sure even the linens were lovely. When you have that many amazing individual pieces, it’s only expected that the finished puzzle will be wonderful.. and this one is pretty near perfect. See it all right this way!
From Tamara Gruner… Jessica and Max got married on a beautiful summer day at the Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa in Beaver Creek, Colorado. Their wedding planner, Heather from Calluna Events, went all out to create a feathery dream wedding for them. We simply love the classic feather grass, which turned the venue into a dreamy location. Jessica looked like a goddess in her stunning Galia Lahav dress, which was complemented by her cute feather Jimmy Choo shoes.
From the Bride… Max and I worked together for three years without ever speaking. In fact, the only thing I used to hear was that he accused me of using his luffa in the company showers after working out or that I spent too much money on silly marketing swag.
We didn’t have much to talk about until a fateful night at The Pub in late 2013. I had spent the day with my friend Tori packing for a relocation to Dallas, TX. We decided to take a break and went out to The Pub for a drink where I spotted Max. Since we had never spoken (and I was pretty sure he still didn’t know my name after three years of working together), I told Tori that I was just going to say hello real quick… quite a while later Tori came looking for me. Much to my surprise, Max was Mr. Talkative for the first time ever… I later found out I was a decoy for the two chatty blondes next to him.
The next week at work Max signed for some more of my expensive marketing grub, and the stuff somehow got lost. I was very upset and worried about explaining it to my boss. At the time, we could not locate the boxes anywhere, but he did offer to buy me a beer that evening to help ease my anxiety.
We met up a few times before my relocation to TX. After that we kept up via text and phone calls until I talked Max into coming to Steamboat, CO for a ski trip with me and a group of my friends (I figured I would invite him since we were staying at his cousin’s place). We still disagree on if I signaled Max to sit next to me by the fireside in Steamboat or if I was just stretching my neck, but the truth is that we’ve been inseparable ever since.
I think Max lost the boxes on purpose… we did end up finding them just weeks before the wedding… three years after loosing them.
