When Heather and Brian started planning their wedding from New York, they envisioned a mountain destination where guests would gather for the weekend, revel in beautiful surroundings, laugh and relax together, and celebrate in style. Heather’s thoughtful attention to detail paired with Brian’s natural hospitality brought that vision to life in Beaver Creek where guests were welcomed with gift bags full of the couples’ favorites—Cape Cod chips, bakery fresh cookies, personalized Minnesota drink koozies, colorful striped socks for the dance floor, and s’mores kits for evenings by the mountainside fire pit at Park Hyatt.
A wax seal stamped with Heather & Brian’s custom crest adorned ceremony programs held by friends and family on the slopeside deck of Allie’s Cabin where Heather’s father officiated the beautiful nuptials. Scarlett, the couple’s adorable dog, acted as flower girl with the help of a few treats and some gentle coaxing down the aisle.
Inside the cabin, tall arrangements of orchids, roses, and calla lilies from Pink Posey Design elevated the elegance of the room while table runners of greenery accented with flowers complimented the natural setting. The team at Allie’s cabin were top notch in service and food, an absolute pleasure to work with. Matt with Elite DJ not only brought the party to life, he invited (by special arrangement) Brian to dance with Heather’s grandmother, the first dance in her life and a touching experience to witness. David Lynn Photography captured the day in their soulful style and the photos couldn’t be more poignant as they recount a weekend of special moments and thoughtful touches, a weekend we were truly honored to be part of.

Nicole and Pete exchanged their vows on the lawn of a mountain log cabin, twenty minutes from the bustle of Beaver Creek, captured in brilliant fashion by Brinton Studios.
Beano’s Cabin, with its massive log beams, intricate antler chandeliers suspended from vaulted ceilings, and double sided stone fireplace, welcomed guests in the cozy lodge fashion perfect for cooling fall temperatures. Over one hundred window panes with towering views of ski runs edged in golden aspen, a five course gourmet dinner prepared in a guest-facing kitchen with pristine tiles and suspended copper pots, elegant eucalyptus table runners accented in white hydrangea and candlelight (from Statice Floral), and the laughter and easy flow of conversation delighted the senses.
Guests ended the evening dancing to the exceptional music of Homeslice band under a canopy of market lights on the cabin deck, stealing an occasional breath of cool mountain air under the romantic twinkle of the Milky Way and sudden burst of a shooting star.
For us, Nicole & Pete’s wedding had the added delight of catching up with some of our former client couples who came as guests and we’re looking forward to more fun in 2015 when we have the honor of planning two of the bridesmaids’ weddings. We love this group of stylish fun-loving friends!
