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!

Julie and Tyler. Such amazing people! We did a ‘Day of’ plan for them at the Keystone Ranch in Keystone Colorado and man, I wish we had been working together from the beginning. Being around these two for about 5 days just wasn’t enough!
Like so many weddings this past summer, we had the rain to contend with. I had been diligently watching the weather satellite from the moment I arrived at the Keystone Ranch. Thankfully they have an amazing system because they need to keep their golfers safe from lightning. After much time going back and forth about whether or not to go outside for the ceremony, I looked at Julie and asked her when you look back, would you be happier wet and outside or dry and inside. We have a window of time that might stay dry if we go now. She said, “let’s go outside!” That second the Keystone Ranch staff ran outside with their towels, dried chairs and we started the ceremony. We had gotten through the entire processional and I had just sent down Julie and her dad. Of course, it started raining. At that point, there was no turning back. So Julie did what makes any wedding planner proud, she kicked off her shoes and headed towards her awaiting groom. I’m so happy she made the decision to go outside because at the end of her wedding she came up to me and said “you know what my favorite part of today was? Getting married in the rain” Urg! I still get chills thinking about it and writing about it now. It goes down as one of my favorite wedding moments. And those photos! You can’t get clouds like that without a little rain 🙂 Thank you Dylan at Dylan Crossley Photo for the jaw dropping photos!
