Rustic Mountainside Real Wedding
Beth & Jesse's destination wedding from Sarah Joelle Photography is a bohemian approach to glamour. Bride Beth wore a beautiful long lace gown from the queen of boho herself, Rachel Zoe, and a flower in her hair. This gorgeous setting in the mountains in Aspen Colorado is just perfect! And since these two love to escape to the mountains every chance they get it seemed like the perfect place to host their wedding...
From the Bride, Beth: "The biggest priority for our wedding was for our guests to enjoy themselves, since most of them were coming from out of state. We wanted to show them the beautiful Colorado scenery without having to drive very far from the wedding venue. The Viceroy in Snowmass worked out perfect for this. All of our guests stayed at the hotel and both the wedding and reception were held there as well. The location provided opportunities to be active outdoors or to site see in nearby Aspen."Sarah Joelle Photography Sarah Joelle Photography
Jesse and I had decided from the beginning that we wanted something other than the typical church wedding with tuxedos and a 3 tier cake (especially because we don't like cake or tuxedos :)). We wanted something more unique and personalized without spending a fortune. Our goal was to make it as easy as possible for our wedding party. The bridesmaids picked their own dresses in a blush shade and our groomsmen wore their own grey pants and white shirts. I got my Rachel Zoe dress new with tags for a steal on Ebay and had it reconstructed to add an open back. I wanted something simple and elegant with a little bit of sexy. It was so comfortable! A real flower hairpiece was something I dreamed of but could not purchase anywhere, so I looked up how to make one on Pinterest and did just that! It really added a bohemian vibe to my lace dress.Sarah Joelle Photography Sarah Joelle Photography Sarah Joelle Photography Sarah Joelle Photography
We were fortunate to have great weather and the sun came out just as we were reading our hand written vows. It was my favorite moment of the whole day. Jesse and I were surrounded by our closest friends and family and everyone had a great time. It was a dream come true!Sarah Joelle Photography Sarah Joelle Photography Sarah Joelle Photography Sarah Joelle Photography Sarah Joelle Photography Sarah Joelle Photography Sarah Joelle Photography Sarah Joelle Photography
