This adorable pair tied the knot at a resort in Beaver Creek, Colorado and were lucky enough to have a fresh blanket of snow cover their big day! The wonder of winter incorporated seamlessly into their travel themed decor and favors making the venue even more elaborate. Keep reading for more photos and details on this travel themed winter wedding!
Snow Queen Bride
This bride enjoyed some pre-ceremony time with her bridesmaids getting ready and shaking the jitters off. She looked beautiful with her hair in full curls and pulled back halfway. You could say she transformed into a snow queen for her wedding day once she stepped into her champagne gown.
A Magical First Look
These two clearly could not contain the excitement for their big day. With a first look photo-shoot on top of the ski hill at the resort, these pictures are simply magical. The contrast of the snow covered scenery with the brides rich colored bouquet makes this winter wedding pop!
Exquisite I Do’s
Although it doesn’t seem possible, the indoor venue was equally as stunning as outside! The resort exuded a rustic beauty with a wood cabin feel.
With warm lighting and simple greenery lining the aisle the happy couple remained the center of attention during the ceremony. The picture window allowed for the outside to act as a nice backdrop during the vows.
Time to Celebrate
Let the celebrations begin! After their beautiful ceremony, it was time for the reception. The couple gave their guests a warm welcome into the party with a chalkboard sign and stacked suitcases to tie in their love of travel!
The newlyweds took a few more sweet photos post-ceremony before joining their guests.
These old fashion skis were on display for guests to sign as the guestbook! What a fun and unique way for this couple to incorporate their favorite winter pastime into their big day!
To help lead guests to their seats, compasses with names and table numbers were on display for the taking. Placed under a large globe, the compasses were a cute way to incorporate travel and were a fun keepsake as well!
Included in the decor were deep hues and miniature globes on the tables. The couple traveled all over the world before settling down for their wedding!
Let There Be Cake!
Of course no wedding is complete without a fun cake cutting! These two were all smiles as they cut into their ski hill cake. This delicious dessert was complete with trees going up the side and an adorable silhouette cake topper!
Winter Wonderful Ending
This adorable couple could not be more perfect for each other! The whole wedding day was wonderful. The amazing location and attention to detail through out the day was nothing short of perfect. This winter wedding left no one feeling cold when they were around this sweet pair.
