Rachael + Brendan | Classic Vail Summer Wedding

Rachael + Brendan’s love is something for the storybooks. These high school sweethearts have been together over a decade and their love is so solid, families so intertwined, community so supportive. Two of the kindest people we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, this duo opted for a classic Colorado wedding at the gorgeous Sonnenalp hotel in the heart of Vail Village. Rachael – an event planning pro on her own – curated her clean design with thoughtful pops of personality and color (look at that fun cake!).  With a perfect combination of florals from Rooted Floral Design, paper goods from Nib + Berry and romantic string lighting by Elite, the space was both welcoming and beautiful!

The two said their forever vows in a romantic ceremony accompanied by 140 of their closest friends and family and sweet pup Watson. As the daylight dimmed and celebrations ramped up, this party crowd flooded the floor and danced under the open sky to Diamond Empire Band and loved on this amazing couple all night long. 

R + B –– we adore you and wish you all the love in the world!!

Zoe + Pete | Vail Larkspur Summer Wedding

When designing for Zoe and Pete, we imagined a glamour filled, mountain modern, black tie affair. The wedding was everything and more! This romantic fete was filled with personal touches – both chic and quirky – to make it a complete reflection of Zoe + Pete’s love story. 

Highlights included the most stunning Ines Di Santo wedding gown, Zoe’s dad officiating their heartfelt ceremony, family joining ceremony musicians for a beautiful rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow mid-ceremony (very Love Actually-esque!), a dreamy champagne wall for an escort card display, pun-ny, cheeky signage everywhere you turned, a glam black and white dance floor with striking decor to complement, subtle nods to musical favorites (check the neon sign!), an elegant showstopper cake and so much more. Zoe + Pete’s guests were treated to a wild dance party and finished the exciting evening with a glitzy sparkler exit where the newlyweds rode off in Vail’s famous pedi-cabs. We love this couple and were honored to have helped this special day come to life – please enjoy reliving this day along with us!!

Real Wedding :: Hadley & Michael’s Romantic Vail Wedding

Hadley was a absolute dream bride! She exudes calm, grace and poise and had a spectacular vision for her wedding!  We were so honored to help she and Michael with their Vail Wedding at the Vail Interfaith Chapel and reception on top of Vail Mountain at The 10th. Working with them throughout the process didn’t feel like work at all, but like spending time with some fabulous friends! We couldn’t have been more happy to witness them tie the knot and for the spectacular Fall day they shared with their friends & family in the Vail Valley!

Until we receive the real deal photos from Sara Hasstedt Photography please enjoy these images we took on our Iphones.
