You are going to love this perfect mountain wedding. It is a Colorado wedding that’s gorgeous. The bride, Kelly, sent me all of the details and shows us how to create the perfect mountain wedding. The beautiful photos were captured by Christina Kiffney Photography   from Boulder, Colorado. I love the engagement picture, the colors in her bouquet and the color of the year in her bridesmaids dresses- Emerald! 

Kelly said… “I included a picture of our proposal because it was absolutely EPIC!”   I agree…

“Guess I should also mention my very personal wedding/engagement ring! Inness custom designed my ring with Emily Busch in Denver. It has an ideal cut diamond set in the Colorado “C” with the Rocky Mountains on the right side and two small diamonds on the left. If you look real close you can even see a little me snowboarding in the mountains! I adore the ring and I am so appreciative he took the time to make something so personal for me! We didn’t get a wedding band because this ring was more than enough for me!

Our goal at our wedding was to have a great party! We wanted all our guests to come and spend a few days with us up in the mountain’s and thats how we chose Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort. It was just far enough outside of Denver to be “destination” but still close enough people wouldn’t mind driving up to it. The actual resort is gorgeous and the views are absolutely stunning.”

How to create a perfect mountain wedding?  “I will say our day was perfect for 3 reasons…

     1. A decent amount of blood sweat and tears, mostly mine…..

     2. We had a very personalized wedding (my brother married us, it was touching, hilarious and not drawn out)

     3. WE GOT LUCKY!

We got married on Sept. 29th, 2012 because it was one of two dates that the resort had open when we set out to find our venue…….over a year before that date. We settled on the 29th because my husband, my father and my step mom race cars and the big national event is in early September so of course we planned our wedding around it! Thats how we got lucky…… we hit the peak of the leaves changing colors! And it down poured the day before during our rehearsal but stayed totally dry for the wedding. There was also an unusually warm week in late September… right about the 29th.

Again the goal for our wedding was to be personalized and fun for EVERYONE not just us 😉 ! We had our good friends Justin Ray and Collin Sanford of No Fair Fights play at our ceremony, my older brother Chris was ordained online (hehe) and put together a great very entertaining ceremony, my mom did a beautiful reading assimilating love to raising a puppy (very appropriate because Inness and I loved nothing more than our two dogs Rica and Lola, earlier in 2012 we lost them back to back tragically).

We were not very interested in sticking to “normal” so we got cupcakes as to not waste any dancing time cutting cake…we had pistachio pudding stuffed almond, lemon, pumpkin spice and of course chocolate! They were decorated in our fall colors and the best I have ever had, thanks to Blue Moon Bakery in Dillon where Inness and I stop for breakfast before skiing as much as humanly possible!

We didn’t have any connection to a florist (shucks…) so we used a local Buena Vista florist, she did a beautiful job and especially considering all I told her was I wanted them orangish…

At the reception we hired an excellent band that had the one task of making sure everyone danced! The band, Fashionably late, was young and so much fun.

And of course they only lasting thing we have from our wedding (besides our undying love of course 😉 ) is our photos. They  were done by photographer Christina Kiffney and she could not have been more perfectly professional and fun to work with. I found Christina through Facebook! She had photographed one of my college friends weddings earlier in the year and I saw on Facebook that her wedding photos were going to be featured on a website so I followed the link and found the most beautiful well composed photos I had ever seen and the rest is history! I am so glad that Christina was more than we could have imagined, she was a true professional and made our wedding carefree and documented the best (and most fun) day of our lives….so far at least 😉 “
