Ellen and Greg. These two were married last September and as luck would have it, it snowed the night before so not only did they get the gorgeous yellow Aspens but they also got snow on the mountains in the background! It was so beautiful! It was a little chilly but guests stayed warm in their blanket that doubled as a wedding favor. One of my favorite moments of this wedding was that Greg’s father doubled as the officiant. There was so much love and emotion. Greg even gave his dad a hug to help him through the ceremony. After the ceremony guests filed into Ten Mile Station for the cocktail hour and then the reception. Bloom Flower Shop did all of the elegant floral arrangements. Courtney of Hampton Entertainment kept the dance floor packed all night with one hit after another. Thank you to Tim of Timothy Faust Photography for capturing the wonderful wedding day!

Sara and Paul had their wedding at the stunning V3 Ranch on top of Boreas Pass in Breckenridge, Colorado. Sara is super creative and her wedding was one of a kind! She used sunflowers as centerpieces and opted out of the traditional round tables with linens, and instead used upscale picnic tables to create a rustic chic vibe. Sara also replaced the traditional wedding cake with a table of pies of all sizes and flavors created especially for them by D’lish Catering. Yum!

With rain and snow subsiding just enough, Laura and David were able to get married at the Vail Mountain Wedding Deck in Vail, Colorado. You can see from the photos it was nothing short of magical. After the ceremony friends and family moved three counties away to enjoy a brisk wedding reception at the Elk Ridge Ranch. Guests stayed warm by dancing the night away to fun, energetic music by Alive on Arrival. Thank you Chris McLaughlin of CMP Studios for these stunning photos.

On my walk today, I noticed the leaves changing. I love fall in the mountains!

With the fall season right on our doorsteps, I figured the best way to get excited for the weddings coming up is to show some awesome fall-wedding ideas. Fall has always been my favorite season. I love the leaves changing, Halloween (my favorite holiday), the weather getting a little cooler, and Starbucks’ pumpkin spice lattes are finally back again! So, if you’re considering a fall wedding, you will “fall” in love with these ideas!
One of my favorite things about fall décor, is the usage of pumpkins. There are so many things you can do with them! Paint them, carve them, leave them plain with some orange and yellow leaves and a cornucopia! Since pumpkins are pretty much the epitome of fall, using them as your centerpieces or in the aisles in your ceremony are cliche but oh-so-cute! Use them as your signs and paint something simple on them like “Weclome, Take a Seat”. Another way to use pumpkins, buy the small ones, cut small slits in the stem, and use them to hold escort cards. To get super cute and unique, cut them open, carve them out, and use them as coolers to hold drinks and ice.
Like I said before, all the different colors of leaves are one of my favorite things about fall. Use those leaves in your centerpieces and on tables around the reception—you can even run them down the sides of the aisles in the ceremony for some beautiful (and inexpensive) aisle décor!
Fall also comes with the awesome “fall-flavored” drinks. Play those up! My favorite are the pumpkin flavored ones (particularly pumpkin spice lattes). You can have apple cider, pumpkin flavored beers and hot chocolate…add a cinnamon stick and it’s super cute and fall-appropriate!
And you can’t forget the desserts!! Change it up, have gingerbread or pumpkin flavored cake or cupcakes. Maybe consider doing pies or cobblers in fall flavors to add some uniqueness to your dessert table. You could add some caramel apples along side some pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting—YUM!
With all of these fall-inspired décor ideas, you are bound to find some that will get your guests in the right spirit for your wedding!
