Let The Adventure Begin

The sun shone brightly for Samantha & Randy’s rustic mountain wedding. They featured creative wooden decor and wonderful florals in this perfect take on a summer wedding in The Rockies.

The morning of Samantha and Randy’s wedding was full of smiles and laughter. While Samantha got ready with her bridesmaids in the salon, one beautiful groomsman was plotting a little first look prank.

Blooming Briar mounted two beautiful floral displays to the pergola to accent the draping chiffon. Samantha and Randy displayed a memory ladder at the entrance of the ceremony site with photos of family and friends that have passed away.

As guests arrived, many were flooded with fond memories from the memory ladder which helped kick off the reunion of family and celebration of love. The ceremony was meant to be a fun expression of Samantha and Randy’s values, including an aspen tree unity ceremony. Their pups also made a surprise visit for the wedding and photos afterwards!

After guests showered the newlyweds in flower petals, beverages began to flow for cocktail hour on the deck. Next to the bar, they set up a “match the couple” game. Old photos of many of the wedding guests were strewn out on a table for people to match together and get to know one another. Such a fun way to get to know your in-laws!

As dinner time approached, guests found their name and table number on a mirrored sign and grabbed a seat to watch the first dance. Each seat had a custom leather tag with the words, “Let The Adventure Begin.” Camel table linens were accented by rustic wooden decor and florals. Dinner was provided by Footers Catering, then everyone headed outside for a night of dancing with Stage One Events surrounded by fire pits, family, and friends!

Samantha and Randy, congratulations! The adventure has begun!
