A Spring Wedding in Vail
Aly & Kyle met in high school and have been together ever since. They are genuine, fun-loving, true soulmates with a graceful style that fits the elevated mountain vibe at Larkspur, Vail. Their beautiful dog, Myla, the breathtaking backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, the natural touches of understated elegance, and the milk & cookies on their dessert bar are just a few of the sweet details that made this weekend special and a true pleasure to be part of. From the ceremony arch constructed by the father of the bride to the high school yearbook that served as a guest book, we loved all the personal and special touches throughout the day. We’re always excited to work with Brinton Studios and to share the photos they capture so perfectly. Perfect Petal brought the bride’s vision to life and the florals and design were fabulous. Congratulations, Aly & Kyle!

Burlap Events is this sweet new company based in Missouri that Ashley & Mark introduced us to. Couples choose a flip camera package, receive the cameras via mail the week before the wedding, and start shooting footage. They and their guests can capture everything from behind the scenes footage to ceremony vows to honeymoon adventures. The cameras are then sent back to Burlap Events to be edited into both a long and short version of the wedding festivities. It’s genius! And fun.
Check out Ashley & Mark’s Vail Mountain Wedding for some great footage and editing results!
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!
