Beaver Creek, Colorado Wedding
The mountain town of Avon is the location for today's post, Ashley + Brett: Colorado Mountain Wedding at the Beaver Creek Lodge, with images courtesy of Urban Safari Photography, Ltd. There are a few towns in the Vail Valley, Vail being the most obvious, but Avon is the town that might be better known as the home of the Beaver Creek Ski Area, a Vail Resorts property. There are a few ski clubs tucked in on the mountain that host weddings, but this venue was located at the base of the ski area. And, for the majority of your guests who have never visited a ski area, Beaver Creek is a high-end experience that puts on a pretty good show during the summer too.

Ashley + Brett were married in Avon, Colorado, at the Beaver Creek Lodge this past September. They started their day getting ready in two spacious suites at the lodge. Ashley and her girls sipped on champagne while the Oklahoma football game played on in the background (Ashley is a huge Sooners fan).
Brett, meanwhile, spent the day with his groomsmen playing golf and gifted them classy watches as their groomsmen gifts. Once everyone was ready to roll, we headed up the ski lift to do the first look at the top of a mountain amidst a sparkling grove of aspen trees.
The ceremony, officiated by Big Ed Culver, a very close + dear family friend, took place at a bridge (which doubles as a ski bridge in the winter, which Ashley and Brett thought was a neat tie into their personalities as they are both big skiers) at the base of the mountain on the Beaver Creek Lodge property.
Hanging lanterns dazzled overhead the guests (who were also greeted with champagne and wine) and baby’s breath lined the monogrammed burlap aisle. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect; just a touch of clouds that provided for soft, diffused light.Guests then headed to the cocktail reception, which was followed by a smores bar near the open fire pit on the patio of the Beaver Creek Lodge.
Ashley and Brett went for a soft pink theme for their table décor, accented by hydrangeas, Kiera blush garden roses and more baby’s breath. Small tea light candles lined the tables.The Beaver Creek Lodge, known for its modern art gallery in its building, was transformed with silver drapery. For their reception entertainment, the bride and groom chose a favorite local band, the Foxfield Four to rock out for the guests. At one point, Ashley even took over for their drummer for a portion of a song.
