Jackie & Colin’s coastal inspired wedding in the picturesque Colorado mountains was a breathtaking celebration that seamlessly blended coastal charm with the rustic beauty of the Rockies and we’re so thrilled to take you through their wedding weekend – flawlessly captures by Clark Brewer.
The festivities began on Friday evening with a welcome reception at a Tavern at Arrabelle, right at the base of the Gondola in Lionshead. On a perfect summer night in Vail, guests arrived to the scent a delicious Colorado BBQ, local beers and of course, s’mores! Guests sat on luxurious lounges curated by Eclectic Hive and shared stories, laughter, and some of their favorites memories with the couple!
It was the perfect evening, filled with heartfelt speeches from loved ones to kick off the weekend.
As the Colorado sun rose on Saturday spirits were high and Jackie and Colin spent time with their friends and family – getting ready for the big day. Jackie and Colin made sure take a few moments in private to read letters they wrote for each other.
The custom invitation suite and day-of details were a highlight of the design process and perfectly designed to highlight the couples love story with a custom envelope liner that showcased all their favorite things as well as a sketch of Coors Field – where they had their first date!
After Jackie & Colin’s first look (cue the tears!), the bridal party and family got on the gondola to head up to mid-mountain for a breathtaking ceremony and reception at The 10th.
The ceremony took place against the backdrop of towering pine trees and a breathtaking view of the Colorado Rockies and was adorned with the most incredible floral installation from Wandering Poppy that was filled coastal-inspired florals that framed the couple as they exchanged vows.
The reception space was elegantly draped in flowing white fabric and adorned with light and airy greenery that transported guests to a coastal yet mountain chic celebration. Tables were set with elegant chargers, patterned salad plates and incredible blooms – creating a coastal ambiance in the heart of the mountains. The menu featured a fusion of coastal and mountain flavors, with fresh seafood and locally sourced mountain cuisine.
The evening was filled with laughter, dancing, and heartfelt toasts under the starlit mountain sky. The sounds of Manhattan Band by the Jordan Kahn Music Orchestra kept the dance floor alive throughout the night. The coastal Martha’s Vineyard inspired wedding nestled in the Colorado mountains was an unforgettable weekend, weaving together the best of both worlds to create a truly unique and memorable weekend
