At the base of Peak 10's Falcon Lift, on Breckenridge Ski Resort’s Peak 9, sits the stunningly elegant, yet rustic, Ten Mile Station, where Cara and Heman (say Hay-men) invited 200 of their closest friends and family to be part of their once in a lifetime wedding ceremony and reception in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. 

In late July, the mountainsides were alive with wildflowers and the well-manicured perennial gardens were blooming with royal blue Lupine, rare, red Columbines and Delphinium.

Cara and Heman’s photographer, Becky Young , captured all the details of their stunning day perfectly.  Her style  is described as "joyful and modern mountain photography."  She specializes in documentary style wedding photography throughout Colorado and the Rocky Mountains.  Her attention to detail, use of natural light and the majestic surroundings do not go unnoticed, these photos are amazing!

Breckenridge’s own Petal and Bean created Cara’s bright Gerber Daisy bridal bouquet along with the groomsmen’s boutonnieres and the bridesmaid’s bouquets.  Petal and Bean has been in the wedding flower business since 1994 and has worked with hundreds of brides creating the perfect wedding flowers and event decor for their special day.

Keeping with her mountain spirit, Cara spent a good part of her day walking around in her sandals under her gorgeous, strapless wedding gown  as you can see here with their cute dog and her bridesmaids riding the lift.

Ten Mile Station is located at 10,234 feet above the Blue River Valley and the quaint Victorian town of Breckenridge on the Slopes of the Breckenridge Ski Area, where it can rain or snow at any time of the year.  However, Cara and Heman were blessed with a glorious blue skies and giant cottony clouds as their backdrop and they didn’t need the umbrellas after all, but they are a good thing to have on hand just in case.  Colorado is typically known for afternoon showers in the summer.

After their beautiful ceremony out on the enormous deck, the staff at Ten Mile Station served an elegant sit down dinner to all their closest friends and family .  Following dinner and several rounds of toasts to the happy couple, Heman, Cara and their guests satisfied their sweet tooths with dark devil’s food, vanilla  and red velvet cupcakes.

{BRIDAL BOUQUET} Wedding flowers by Breckenridge florist, Creative Flowers Inc | Petal and Bean

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...
