Candace and Adam got married on top of Vail Mountain on the Vail Wedding Deck. The weather was as beautiful as the bride. Just kidding-not even close! We then moved down the mountain to the gorgeous Arrabelle at Vail square. Liz of Fluer de Liz made the whole room soft and glowing with custom candelabras and flowing fabric. Great Time DJ kept the crowd moving while Jason and Gina caught every amazing moment!
Candace and Adam live in Austin, but their New York City proposal story is one of my favorites! I always love to hear both sides of the proposal so here it is in their own words:
Candace: It was the most magical and incredible proposal I could have ever asked for! We went to New York City right around Christmas, so the city had that extra sparkle and holiday magic to it! Adam planned everything out perfectly (with the help of some of my friends), and it was the best weekend of my life! We took a stroll through Central Park, and unexpectedly Adam dropped to one knee and proposed on the Bow Bridge, I could not believe it. Then he took me back to the hotel, where two of our closest friends, Melissa and Barrett, had flown in from Texas to be a part of the weekend! Everyone celebrated all weekend, we moved from one fabulous restaurant to the next, and met up with more of my closest friends (Erienne, Betsy, and Sean) who all live in New York. From comedy shows to shopping in Soho, we really enjoyed all the sights and sounds the city had to offer, it was amazing.
Adam: I had the whole thing planed for months, I don’t know how I didn’t blow the surprise. Although Candace threw me a curve ball… I had planned to propose on a horse drawn carriage ride in the park, and Candace decided last minute that she didn’t want to take the carriage because it was cruel to the horse! So instead we took a pedi-cab around the park, which is essentially a human drawn carriage! But it all worked out, he let us off at the bridge and you know the rest. That’s why I love her, she’s got the biggest heart.
Awwwwww! Now for the visuals!

Jamie and Doug. These two lovebirds were married this last summer on Anticipation Run outside of Timber Ridge in Keystone, Colorado. You could not ask for a better day! The wedding ceremony went off without a hitch. Fleur de Liz provided the gorgeous floral arrangements. I think there is so much to be said about doing simple/elegant decorations and letting that venue speak for itself. Jay at Standing Room Only had everyone dancing up until the couple’s fun grand exit. Their friends and family made a tunnel for them to run through and onto the gondola to start their life together as husband and wife. Thank you Jamie and Doug for choosing Distinctive Mountain Events for their wedding planners! And a huge shout out to Joe Kusumoto Photography for sharing these amazing photos!

Stephanie and Kiel. They were one of the most down to earth couples that I have had the pleasure of working with. Wedding planning can be pretty consuming. Two families coming together, so many emotions, not to mention the amount of money that goes into the weekend. Stephanie and Kiel hired every one of their vendors about 2 years out. They wanted to get everything done and have a plan in place so they could enjoy being engaged. SO cute! When the day (finally 😉 came around they were just so in love and ready to party! Leon Joseph Littlebird was their officiant and performed an unforgettable ceremony. With sage burning and everything! As you can see from the last photos below, Jay at Standing Room Only had everyone dancing the night away. A huge thank you to Katie Green of Katie Corinne Photography for the wedding photos! Thank you Stephanie and Kiel for entrusting us to help on your wedding day! We wish you the best!

The Keystone Ranch has to be one of my favorite venues. I love the quirkiness of the dining room, the history in the lounge area, the modern feel in the tent and the mountain view of the golf course ceremony site. It just seems like you get so much of every feel at the Ranch. I think this is what makes couples choose to have their weddings at the Ranch. Clare and Micheal included. These two cuties said their I do’s at the Ranch. The wedding party walked down the aisle to the music of the Heart Strings Music. After the ceremony guests flowed into the tent and on the lawn for cocktail hour. Next guests moved into the dining room for a Keystone Ranch dinner. Delicious! And the center pieces, love! The garland is very in right now and Lindsay at Pots and Petals nailed the look. After that guests danced the night away to Great Time DJ. A huge thank you to Michele and Mark at IN Photography for sharing these amazing photos with us!
