Rustic Comfort, An Inspiring Mountain Wedding at Granby Ranch, Sol Vista Ski Resort
Dawn and Kyle rode a chairlift up to their mountain ceremony at Granby Ranch. With a jaw-dropping vista of the Continental Divide, slopes covered in yellow and purple wildflowers, and an aisle that started in the lush shade of an aspen grove, the June setting could not have been more perfect. Steve Stanton Photography captured everything beautifully, from wooden runners adorned in purple thistle to hula hoops and fire pit fun.
Granby Ranch, home to Sol Vista Ski Resort, features lodging at the base for guests, a chairlift up to one of the most inspiring mountain ceremony locations in Colorado, and even a yurt at the top complete with mirrors for that last minute veil adjustment.
Bouquets by Statice Floral added just the right pop of wildflower color, especially against Dawn’s gorgeous white dress. Her flowered belt with a touch of bling is perfect in the natural setting, too.
Guests rode a chairlift back down the mountain to enjoy cocktails and cool summer breeze on the deck.
Antlers encircling wildflowers, wooden runners from a friend’s weathered fence, bud vases wrapped in twine, lighted branches emerging from vintage inspired tin milk cans…this reception was rich in visual texture that complimented the mountain ski lodge setting.
Sharpe pens + Wooden Bench = Guestbook! We love the personal practical concept and guests had fun leaving notes for Dawn and Kyle. They also had a lot of fun on the dance floor to the music of Raygunomics, an 80’s cover band. The idea of displaying colorful flip flops for dancing in bushel baskets tied in nicely with the rustic comfort theme, as did the outside firepit enjoyed by all ages.
Whole Foods created this colorful delicious assortment of cupcakes which we displayed on a variety of platters and tree slices.
Dawn and Kyle are appreciative people, as evidenced by their thoughtful thank-you at each guest’s place setting (pictured below, with a menu printed on the reverse side). Their wedding style tastefully appreciates the natural beauty of breathtaking mountains, delicate wildflowers, and earthy elements of wood, metal, antlers, and light.
Dawn and Kyle are much appreciated in return, both by the numerous guests who made this one of the largest weddings ever hosted at Granby Ranch and by us. Cheers to you both, Dawn & Kyle! Thank you for letting us be part of your day!
