Beaver Creek Beauty

Yesterday was a gorgeous, sunny day in Minturn and Beaver Creek with tons of new snow on the peaks but minimal amounts on the roads. An ideal combination for a cozy and bright (but not sloppy) late winter/early spring wedding!
Our clients Alecia and Steve picked St. Patrick's chapel in Minturn for their ceremony and the beautiful Saddleridge in Beaver Creek for the reception. Decorations for the chapel were kept minimal to compliment (but not overpower) the cozy space. We used a white cloth isle runner and accented the pews with white satin ribbon bows with hanging small hurricanes and votives. The alter was decorated with a lace cloth overlay, candles and a tall display arrangement of hydrangea and foliage and flowers in shades of green.
Alecia wore a light ivory, sweetheart neck gown with a full skirt and carried an elegant bouquet of ivory garden roses, white ranunculus, white dendrobium orchid buds, green bupleurum and silver dusty miller on a backdrop of white hydrangea. The seven bridesmaids wore J. Crew dresses in bright clover and carried clutch bouquets of ornamental kale, green cymbidium orchid buds, ivory garden roses, supergreen roses, bupleurum, ruscus and dusty miller foliage (also on a backdrop of white hydrangea). The ring bearer carried a green kermit mum pillow adorned with thin ribbon and a fern shoot while the flower girl carried a single, large stem of white hydrangea.
At Saddleridge, the library was filled with votives for warm candlelight during cocktail hour. The centerpieces were designed in our classic silver urns and contained lush buds and foliage coordinating with the bridal party selections. Saddleridge is an incredible venue and needs little decor.. especially with the amazing view of snow and aspens out the large windows!
