0838When 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.

Winter bride, David Lynn Photography

Some of the most striking winter wedding photos we’ve seen at Devil’s Thumb Ranch are these gorgeous images from David Lynn Photography.  Kelly and Matt were among the first couples to exchange vows and celebrate their wedding in the new High Lonesome Barn and they couldn’t have asked for a better day with the bluebird skies and a Broncos playoff game that sent Denver to the Superbowl.  Check out the fusion of mountain rustic with touches of elegance from Statice Floral.  We especially love the eclectic display of lanterns and greenery in the foreground of a breathtaking ceremony view of the snowcapped Continental Divide.  Congratulations to Kelly + Matt, a very stylish, very thoughtful couple!
