When watching the tweets fly around one day, I saw this Keystone, Colorado wedding from photographer Autumn Lee of Dash Photography and I just had to share it with you all. You see, there are lots of different ways to dress up and celebrate your day, so here's today's version. A bold and beautiful red, white and black color palette was used throughout the event.
Branding your event is a fun way to carry the theme of your wedding experience. Let's first take a look at some of the details of the wedding, which are best captured before the wedding, as all the various pieces come together.
In the image above the groom is seen wearing an all-white suit, in contrast to his groomsmen, making him stand out from the other fellas. See more photos from this wedding on the blog for Dash Photography. It looks like it was a fun night, and we're thankful that the couple and photographer wanted to share these with you. Check out Autumn's social feeds through the links below. Looks like she's huge on Pinterest with over 1,000 followers over there. We like Pinterest too.
I like to hear the stories from the day, and to share any feedback or lessons learned, so here's what the bride had to say.
Q. Any funny or memorable moments from your wedding?
A. Well we did have a couple memorable moments throughout the week of our wedding. One of my bridesmaid got the wrong dress! It really was not a big deal and the dress was pretty and matched the other dresses just fine. The funny part about the mistake is that some close friends said "wow, you handled that really well, if I were you I would have freaked out!". Another very memorable moment was that my husband lost his wallet full of cash the night of his bachelor party. He called me the next morning in horrible regret of how drunk he had gotten.
Q. Why the mountains? What resources did you get inspiration or help from?
A. My husband and I really love snowboarding and we enjoy the mountains and the laid back atmosphere it provides. To add a personal touch we labeled each table in our reception hall as a mountain we had boarded at (Vail, aspen, keystone, Breckenridge, copper, monarch, etc.). It was really cute. I got my inspiration from everywhere, I did not have just one or two resources. I also got a lot of ideas from oriental trader. I made a lot of our decorations and I got a lot of great ideas from oriental traders.
Q. Any “hindsight 20/20″ advice you have for couples?
A. The whole week of my wedding I felt I was walking on clouds and my maid of honor had to really keep me on track to stay on our schedule. If I could give one tip of advice for future brides it would be to concentrate on completely enjoying the week of your wedding and it only happens once. It is hard enough to remember this week in your life so you want to soak up as many memorable moments as you can. It is really easy to get caught up in all the little details you want to get done but you have to delegate your to do list and just enjoy being the bride. Throughout the week I felt as though nothing could touch me, nothing could rain on my parade. I think it was that mindset that kept anything from invading my joyous week.
