Bennett invitation suite

For this Wedding Wednesday, we are heading out to Aspen, Colorado for the celebration of Mollie and Sam. Corbin Gurkin captured all of the lovely images. I loved the mixed color palette on this one of blues, purples, natural wooden hues, gray, etc. This letterpress invitation suite from Lettered Olive incorporated the Colorado scenery.

The bride wore a custom dress from Nardos Imam; a monogrammed Mrs. Box is a perfect way to keep a reminder of the day; the brides’ bouquet was wrapped in vintage ribbon sourced in New York. The littlest ring bearer in his bow tie couldn’t be left out on the big day.

How cute is this? The bride being a big fan of the movie, Father of the Bride, wore lace tied sneakers under her gown much like the daughter in the movie!

Guest bag Collage

A canvas and leather tote was filled with his and hers S’well bottles, snacks, sweets, and a weekend guide book amongst other take home goodies.

Bennett bridesmaids

Bridesmaids wore different complimenting shades and styles from Lula Kate.

Bennett ceremony

The scenery could not have been more gorgeous, so to compliment and anchor the ceremony against the mountain backdrop, we added pops of vivid purples against the greenery arch.  A custom monogrammed aisle runner laid over wooden planks added some soft but rustic glamour to the space.

The reception took place at the Roaring Fork Club. Guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the portico, dancing inside with sweeping views through open doors and windows, and then dancing and dessert in a tent on the lawn.

Flower die cut escort cards by Lettered Olive, in the wedding colors were hung from a chandelier in the foyer heading into the dining room.

Long tables were minimal and tailored; Menus were housed in leather bound booklets “branded” with each guests’ name; wooden cut outs were used for the table numbers.

Lounge

Guests moved into the reception tent after dinner. The “club” we created had hardwood floors landscaped with cowhide rugs, open air mountain views, and low lighting perfect for cozy conversation.

wedding cake

The delicate floral cake by The Caribou Club was the perfect feminine touch against the rustic terrain.

dancing

The couple shares their first dance as husband and wife on a custom designed dance floor surrounded by their closest friends and family. Their first dance song: “All of Me” by John Legend.
