What happens at a ski resort in spring? It’s transformed into a woodland wonderland for a Colorado wedding of course! Hey, if you got it, flaunt it! Natalie and Brian embraced all the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains in their celebration, and from the illustrated invites to the spruce tree unity ceremony to the moss-covered bar, it was overflowing with botanic goodness. You’ll see what we mean soon enough!

From the planner, Spice of Calluna Events: The plan was simple – A weeklong mountain retreat with family and friends in beautiful Vail, Colorado. Hiking, biking, river rafting, rock climbing, decadent meals, great music, and lots of spa time! All the guests were invited to Beaver Creek Resort for a romantic wedding high on a mountain peak followed by the famous Beano’s Cabin 5-course gourmet dinner. We topped it all off with cake, champagne, and a KILLER dance party under the stars!

The vision was natural romance with vintage lace (that dress!), patina candlesticks, antique goblets, aged parchment paper, poetry and sheet music, Jane Austen, a warm crackling fire and locally sourced flavors paired with favorite wines. There was natural beauty throughout the woodland wonderland, as soft pastel blooms, dripping vines and hanging moss decorated the scene. You’ll spot touches of whimsy throughout the cabin and a plush lounge for cocktail hour that’s cozy as can be.

We’ll let you in on a little secret. Invites are one of our favorite pieces of any wedding story! Because they do just that… tell a story. And this illustrated invitation suite from Cheree Berry Paper with matching stamps and torn-edge detail makes our hearts sing!

Some of the highlights of the day? The secluded First Look in an Aspen grove. The AMAZING second dress to wow guests during a choreographed first dance. And the groom rocking with the band on his saxophone!
