We love when our couples choose to do something a little out of the ordinary, but still focus on bringing their closest friends and loved ones to celebrate the day. Jess and Anthony embodied just that. From our initial phone call, I knew that Jess and Anthony’s wedding was going to be one to remember! They wanted to celebrate with their closet friends and family, and to do it in a way that was intimate. We decided on renting an amazing private residence in Breckenridge, CO. The Chateau of Breckenridge, which is managed by Paragon Lodging, was an incredible home nestled in the mountains. The selling point was the gorgeous rooftop patio that boasted insane views of the area. The morning was spent with Jess and her girls getting ready in the Chateau while enjoying mimosas. The atmosphere was relaxed, calm, and fun – and we love that!
When guests arrived, they were treated to champagne cocktails as they made their way to the rooftop patio for the ceremony. Being in the middle of October, we had planned for all kinds of weather, but luck was on our side! The weather could not have been more gorgeous! Jess was truly a vision in her amazing dress! There really wasn’t a dry eye in the house as Jess and Anthony said their vows beneath a gorgeous wooden arch and cascading greenery designed by Petal and Bean of Breckenridge. After the ceremony, guests remained on the rooftop for cocktails and small bites. A favorite among guests was the mini tomato soup shooters topped with small grilled cheese sandwiches!
After cocktails, guests headed downstairs to enjoy a pasta station prepared by Food Hedz. The decor was elegant and sweet, much like the couple! Guests sat at farm style tables adorned long garlands of greenery down the center, and place settings of birch chargers, slate gray plates and gold flatware. The many votives added such a warm ambiance to the already incredible dining area. After dinner, guests then headed back to the rooftop patio where toasts were made and dances were had! As always, DJ Jahsonic knows how to make a party! Jess added an absolutely stunning fur stole to her ensemble as the night moved on. Thank you so much, Jess and Anthony, for allowing us to be a part of your day! We wish you so much love!
