From our stunning bride :: Scott & I had a similar vision for our wedding from the start, one dictated by the beautiful place we were engaged & decided to get married, Aspen. With such a gorgeous location, we only wanted to highlight the scenery, not take away from it. Thus, with our amazing wedding planner, Heather Dwight of Calluna Events, we created a simple, classic, elegant & warm wedding that complimented the breathtaking scenery behind the patio at the St. Regis.
Given all of the rich colors of Aspen in early September – various shades of green with some golden tones hinting of Fall – we chose white as our wedding color. Not just a flat white, but all types of white & cream for texture & depth. My bridesmaids wore off-white, lace dresses, the tent for dinner was white, with white drapery & clear chandeliers, & our tablecloths were a cream taffeta. Our amazing flowers, provided by Aspen Branch, included orchids, hydrangea & ranunculus roses with green leaves, including Aspen leaves & Aspen branches. We could not have enough candles, placing them all over the dinner tables & inside the St. Regis where our band, the Hudson Project, played for 4 straight hours. Apparently, golden up-lighting in combination with natural candlelight guarantees that your guests will celebrate & dance until midnight.
Our talented photographer, Kate Holstein, & videographer, Forget Me Not Media, not only captured the day, but the mood, feel & ambience. Our photos and video are touching & beautiful.
Simply put, everything was perfect.
