{ REAL MOUNTAIN WEDDING } Lindsey + Jeff at Ten Mile Station in Breckenridge, Colorado. Featured in The Knot Magazine, Part One.

Ceremony_0230.jpg

This rustic mountain wedding in the Rocky Mountains was at the Breckenridge Ski Resort's Ten Mile Station.  A quiet, on-mountain Breckenridge wedding ceremony location and reception venue, is in our backyard, and feels like our 'home turf' when compared to all the other large wedding venues in our area.

Photographer, Rachel Olsen, captured the bride and groom throughout the day in part one of our two part series of this real wedding in Summit County, Colorado.

This bridal bouquet was made of Dahlias, Sunflowers, Veronica, Dusty Miller and Fern leaves.  We always tell the brides to hold their bouquets at about their belly button, and not up by their chest area.  This makes for great pictures, like the one above!

Bridesmaids holding their bouquets, and being where their girlfriend wants them to be, right beside her as she exchanges vows with her best friend.   These bouquets had all the same flowers, minus the Dahlias.

{ REAL MOUNTAIN WEDDING } Melissa + Jesse // Elk Ridge Ranch, Breckenridge, Colorado

I_0272-624-x-424.jpg

Just south of Breckenridge and over a mountain pass is the Elk Ridge Ranch.  An intimate venue with views of fourteen thousand foot peaks and a magnificent alpine valley.  This small wedding venue can be used alone, or with the tent right next to the house.

This wedding was published in the Knot magazine.  Clean lines, a bit of asian influence, and bold colors.

Orchids, ball lanterns and lounge furniture created an absolutely unique atmosphere for a mountain wedding.  We see a lot of rustic, wildflower themes (which is totally our area, we understand that), and it was nice to see a fresh approach to a small mountain wedding.

The flowers for this wedding was created by Dina Sanchez of Creative Flowers Inc | Petal and Bean, a 17 year Breckenridge florist who has created hundreds of bridal bouquets.  She uses the best products available, has a wealth of resources and contacts from being a longtime professional wedding and special event floral decorator.

This wedding at the Breckenridge Ski Resort's Ten Mile Station used yellow, blue, green and white for their fresh color scheme.  The bridal bouquet was filled with yellow Sunflowers, white Dahlias, and white Veronica.  It was created by Dina of Creative Flowers Inc | Petal and Bean, a florist in Breckenridge, Colorado.

This Rocky Mountain bride and groom appear in the latest issue of The Knot magazine, and we're gonna love sharing more of this wedding, as there's too many pics to put into just one post!  It's great seeing these events come together, as couples often find us early in the creative process and are overwhelmed with possibility.

In the information form we received, the couple stated that they  "just started planning, so still feeling this out and trying to decide which of the many ideas will win out, but we think it will be simple but elegant and play off the environment around us. I like the idea of trying to tie an outdoorsy, organic feel with some element that reflects our current home in Brooklyn, NY (if that is even possible!). And then I've always loved the idea of having a vintage-inspired wedding."

The bridesmaids bouquets also had yellow Sunflowers, green Kermit Pomps, and white Veronica.  We think they did a great job putting it all together, and really like the contrast between the yellow and blue throughout the event.  You'll see as we show more...
