We focused on the ceremony in Lindsey and Jeff's earlier post, and we'll now focus on the reception decor.  This real Breckenridge wedding that,  according to The Knot Magazine's online feature , is "playing off the vintage touches of the ski lodge and the breathtaking views.  Lindsey and Jeff chose yellow, blue, green and white for their fresh color scheme."

Rachel Olsen Photography beautifully captured these images and is based out of Fort Collins, Colorado.  This late August wedding was held on the ski slopes of Breckenridge Ski Resort, and is situated half-way up the ski hill, near the Falcon Chair, which gives access to one of my favorite runs on the hill, the Burn.

Rustic picture frames held table numbers while jars and different sized vases held a mix of colorful flowers.  The room has tall ceilings and large windows that show the local mountain landscape and offer a high-altude wedding experience you can't get in-town.

One way that's very easy to make you mountain wedding green is to use rental items, such as glassware from the florist.  The florist can also suggest linen resources that will bring out the most of the color design for the event, and will make it all look great.  We'll be blogging about some new color tools we just found on our blog, so be sure to check back often for new ideas and online resources that we'll be sharing as they emerge!

Cupcakes remain very popular and appear to be at just as many weddings as those with cakes these days.  We've also been seeing lots of candy buffets at mountain weddings, perhaps we should ask for some brides to be a bride tester for products and services... hmmm.  Let us know if you're interested in trying out stuff and writing for our blog.

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.

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

Formals_0002-399-x-600.jpg

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...
