Mountains, Love and Rustic Whimsy

Set against a sunny September forest backdrop, Tara and Jason’s event was the kind of rustic meets romantic wedding that just sings.  From the ceremony’s live guitar music to the couple stealing kisses in a sun-kissed meadow in the mountains to the beaming smiles from start to finish, there’s so many reasons to adore this lovefest!


They had a wedding full of details, love and whimsy. From the bride’s dazzling gold heels, to the colorful candy station; we just could not get enough of this wedding and this couple! The Estes Park ceremony was held outdoors at the base of McGregor Mountain. The bridesmaids were adorable in their purple and lavender chiffon and the 3 flower girls wore classic white along with gorgeous flower crowns. Their candy station consisted of multiple purple and gold sugary goodies for guests to nibble on.


  • Their lively, elegant color scheme of purple, sage, lavender, champagne, gold and ruby
  • Beautiful petal toss consisting of yellow, fuschia and blush rose petals
  • Rustic brown paper escort cards wedged in wooden holders
  • Their elaborate purple and gold candy station displayed in wooden boxes, in apothecary jars and even mixed with live plants!

The best part of the wedding and the planning though was the families and their spirit of love, respect and their “go for it” attitudes. They were open to every idea and kept the true meaning of a wedding celebration first in their hearts.


These photos are inspirational and just out right gorgeous, just like the couple.  Congratulations Tara and Jason!
