Hesperus Mountain Wedding: Caroline + Collin


“In true love, there is no mountain too high to climb…”

There is something about outdoor, mountain weddings that are simply mystifying. The cool air and breeze that slips through the aspen tree leaves. The flower gardens and rustic feel that you can’t find anywhere else.

On July 23rd, the sweetest couple and my friends, Caroline + Collin, married at Ridgewood Event Center in Hesperus, Colorado.

The mountains are a meaningful part to their story, because Collin proposed to Caroline at the top of the “14er” Mount Bierdstadt after an exhausting hike.

The wedding venue was a rustic wood building tucked in between fields of flowers and a bubbling creek. Throughout the venue and underneath a tent where the guests ate dinner and danced, wood mountains engraved with various “14er” mountain names were placed –  Mt. Evans, Mt. Antero, Sunshine Peak, Pikes Peak, Mt. Princeton to name a few.

The color palette Caroline and Collin chose was navy, blush, cream, pale green and hints of gold. Her bouquet was filled with garden roses, scabiosa, viburnum berries and greenery.

As Caroline walked down the grassy aisle, arm wrapped around her father’s arm, tears swelled in her eyes and Collin’s expression was pure joy. Their ceremony was beautiful and heartfelt – with laughter and smiles that showed their true love for each other.

Then, the reception – such a blast! Before the toasts, the wonderful photographer, Hailey King, took Caroline and Collin into the flower fields and shot portraits before the sun tucked behind the rolling hills.

The toasts were sentimental and light-hearted and the dinner was a hit. They danced the night away until Caroline and Collin said their farewells and left in an orange vintage car.

This was truly a beautiful wedding that was filled with wonderful people! I had the pleasure of meeting the bridesmaids during the bachelorette party in Denver and they all are beautiful, fun women.

I wish Caroline and Collin every happiness and thank you for trusting me with your special day!
