We love seeing Ashley and Mark’s fun-loving Vail wedding at Donovan Pavilion on Colorado Weddings Magazine blog today with some romantic snowy photos by Brinton Studios, a heart-warming mac and cheese bar from Footers Catering, and a cake masterpiece by Mountain Flour.  Check out all the fun details and the complete vendor team in the feature:

A Spring Wedding in Vail

Ashley blog


Mountain weather can be unpredictable in April but as Vail locals, Ashley and Mark completely embraced the gently falling snow that softened their wedding day.  Brinton Studios beautifully captured the romance of that first dance on the Donovan Pavilion patio surrounded by friends, family, baby’s breath, and shimmering bubbles, the festive bridal party serenade from a green Turtle Bus, the sacred moments of a meaningful ceremony at Vail Chapel, and hand-crafted details like the pretzel ski poles dipped in chocolate by Ashley’s mom, the escort cards displayed in wine corks on wine-box cheeseboards crafted by Mark, and the aspen tree masterpiece cake by Mountain Flour.  A gourmet mac and cheese station from Footers Catering warmed guests up for an evening of fun and dancing.

Ashley and Mark, you are such a beautiful couple, inside and out, and we are so grateful to have been part of your weekend!

When Erin and Derek dressed up in alternating superhero capes, 80’s spandex, and Gatsby feather boa and tophat for their engagement photos with Brinton Studios, we knew their Vail wedding was going to be a fun and stylish celebration.  In fact, the spokes of a thousand bicycle wheels from the USA Pro Challenge Bike Race, rolling through town on an August afternoon couldn’t compete with the exuberance in this winning wedding day.

Smooth wood swoops gracefully over guests at Vail Chapel, tucked intimately among aspen and spruce trees that peek through tall elegant altar windows as Erin and Derek exchange their vows.

The beauty of windows and wooden beams continues to showcase natural mountain beauty at Donovan Pavilion where guests sip on cocktails by a gurgling creek, Footers Catering prepares a fresh dinner onsite, and the fine script of a ski run table name is tucked into its slotted branch among mercury glass, ivory candles, and romantic clusters of hydrangea, roses, stock, and dusty miller arranged by Statice Floral. Gold chargers, gold chivari chairs, and gilded signs lend a sense of glamour to the romantic elegance. The sweet and stylish soiree is a perfect reflection of Erin & Derek’s thoughtfulness, creativity, and attention to the gorgeous details that make a fun and memorable experience for their guests.
