Vail Wedding Planner: Candace and Adam

Posted by on August 21st, 2017

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!

Vail Wedding Planner: Jessica and Coe

Posted by on January 28th, 2014

Jessica and Coe, both locals in the Vail Valley, decided to take their love of the mountains and wrap their wedding around it.  They started the day early taking pictures all over Vail.  Next we headed up the mountain to the Vail Wedding Deck where the views are unforgettable!  After a beautiful Jewish/Christian ceremony we were on the move again!  This time to the Sebastian Hotel to dance the night away–seriously the dancing started the minute the guests arrived and didn’t stop until the very end.  What an amazing day!  Thank you toTrig and Char of Trystan Photography for capturing every moment.
