I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

Sara and Ramsey knew they wanted to get married in Estes Park as they met, fell in love, and made their home in Colorado. Plus, they already had a tradition of hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park followed by pie from the Colorado Cherry Company. So that’s what they did, got married overlooking the mountains at Twin Owls and celebrated with a lovely lodge reception and pie from CO Cherry Co.. Add in bold and beautiful peony-centric florals by Hana Style and the gorgeous photography of Alix Loosle and we’ve got a stunning wedding in the Rockies for your enjoyment!

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

We knew we wanted to get married in Estes Park as we met, fell in love, and made our home in Colorado, plus we had a tradition of hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park followed by pie from the Colorado Cherry Company. For me, the most special part of our wedding was the involvement of our loved ones. From the pecan pies baked by my mother-in-law to the wreath made by my mom, and from the brother who acted as our officiant to the brother who performed our first dance song, the day felt like a reflection of us and the people we love.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

The most memorable part of the day was definitely the ceremony. Surrounded by our closest family and friends, looking out to the Rocky Mountains, and reciting our own personal vows of love and commitment to one another – it was the most beautiful and incredibly humbling experience. I will also always treasure the memory of dancing with my father, as well as the moment Ramsey and I stepped away for a few minutes to enjoy the sunset alone together. And, of course, the highlight of the night was dancing at the reception, complete with a spontaneous limbo made from groomsmen’s ties, army crawls, break dancing, and glow stick sunglasses. The day flew by, but it was everything and beyond what we had hoped for, and we are so grateful for the unbelievable amount of love and support we felt that day.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

Ramsey and I met during our first year of law school at the University of Denver. We were next-door neighbors and classmates, so we easily found excuses to hang out – building a snowman, grabbing coffee, late-night studying, making dinner, or no reason at all. And while we immediately bonded over our similarities (being from neighboring hometowns, with geophysicist fathers, and having brothers named Zachary), ultimately our differences strengthened us most, as we challenged one another and grew together over the next four years.

Small, intimate weddings offer so many options for personalization—from venue to style—that large wedding couples are often limited on. Caitlin and Dave’s wedding day at Villa Montara, a private oceanfront property in Montara, California, is a stunning combination of simplicity and relaxed seaside vibes and a great example of the advantages of a small, intimate wedding. The adventure-loving couple celebrated their love with a casual ceremony and reception filled with close family, friends and a whole lot of gorgeous pink roses by florist Meghan Marsala. The rentals from A Festive Affair and AM Party Rentals give the party a casual-elegance that lets the beauty of the property shine and there’s tons of personalized details to inspire. Lilly Red Creative was on hand to capture all the moments of the day and we’re excited to be sharing all of it with you today!

What made the wedding special and unique? 

Each piece of art inside and out, combined with the grand windows that face directly to the ocean, created a mix of distinct elements that characterizes Villa Montara.

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

She was looking for a simple, yet elegant style, for their wedding day, “less is better.” This is how she picked her wedding dress. She wanted something that fit her but with a touch of elegance from the lace that covered the dress, matching the beach theme with her Ugg shoes.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal? 

This location perfectly matches Caitlin and Dave’s lifestyle. They are adventurous and they love traveling all around the world to discover unique places. They also love surfing, skiing and hiking and have a passion for Mexican food.

What was the most memorable part of the day? 

A simple wedding surrounded by their families and best friends.

Sam and Zach wanted wanted a lush green wedding in the city.  With the help of Laura Remmert Events and the incredible floral and greenery installations by Designs by Ahn their Long Island venue, The Foundry, was transformed into a magical, industrial secret garden. The 19th century manufacturing plant was draped in white florals and green vines that set the tone for a day that incorporated the orthodox Jewish traditions of the groom’s family. We love the combinations of the drama of the scene with the relaxed vibe of the bride, groom and their celebratory friend and family. Check out all the lovely images by our friend Levi Stolove Photography.

Christina and Steve’s playful, laid-back and elegant wedding day took place on the grounds of the historic French Legation Museum. The outdoor ceremony and reception, designed and planned by Eclipse Event Co., included stationed catering by Contigo to encourage guests to mingle and graze, cafe lighting and colorful florals by Disch Events, Northeastern Brazilian dance music by Seu Jacinto and a super-cute dessert table by Green Lily Bakery filled with macaroons, cannolis, and donuts. Christina, a designer, set the fun-loving tone with the art-driven colorful stationery and custom designed pins for all the guests and staff. We’re loving the chill vibe and vibrant details of the day and lucky for us Brittany Jean Photography was on hand to capture it all!

from the planner: Craving a beautiful outdoor venue that could accommodate a large (and I mean large) amount of guests, Christina and Steve opted to celebrate their marriage at the beautiful French Legation Museum. They wanted to be close to the city, but also find a place that fed into Christina’s love for historic buildings; FLM was the perfect spot!

Christina and Steve met through mutual friends (thanks to Craigslist and the Peace Corp, as they put it). Starting their relationship as friends, they eventually moved into colleagues, and now are husband and wife! On December 1st, 2015, Steve flew all the way to NYC to surprise Christina with his proposal.

The French Legation Museum is a wonderfully historic building located in East Austin. It’s the oldest building in the city! They are just getting into the wedding industry, but its blank canvas allows for all sorts of ideas to be created in the space. They only have outdoor space for use, which makes the rain plan a little tricky. Projected to rain all week, we were a little nervous about whether or not to move forward with our tenting option. Christina decided on Wednesday of that week that if it rained, all the guests would just have to dance in the rain! And it definitely paid off. The rain held off all evening until just after send off, which couldn’t have been more perfect.

Wanting to create a playful, laid back, yet elegant experience for their guests, the couple decided to use Contigo for catering and instead of doing a sit down or buffet style dinner, chose to have stations placed around the lawn that would allow guests to mingle, graze, and enjoy the company. They wanted to create an experience for their guests that wasn’t your typical cookie-cutter style of reception.

Disch Events provided the simple, yet perfect aesthetic to the evening through their lighting and floral. Festoon lights were all that was needed to spruce up this space and make it pop. Floral was organic and sustainably sourced, which was important to the couple. Ferns decorated the ceremony space and the dinner stations. The bride’s bouquet was designed based on the natural bend of the stems, which made for an absolutely elegant and unique feel. Small vases with colorful, soft blooms filled the tables, accented by votives and gold tea lights. The space could not have been more beautiful!

Being a designer, Christina created all the stationery for the evening from programs to pins for their guests – which all the staff wore as well to keep the event fun. She mixed bright patterns and fun colors together, which described the couple perfectly and made the wedding completely them.

For dessert, the guests enjoyed macaroons, cannolis, and donuts provided by Green Lily Bakery. Even Steve’s mother brought in some specially wrapped chocolates with the couple’s faces on them for the guests to enjoy! There was no official cake cutting, so guests were invited to enjoy dessert at will, which continued to add to the experience the couple was looking to create.

Guests were quick to hit the dance floor with traditional Northeastern Brazilian music as their backdrop. Seu Jacinto was the perfect addition to this evening! Their fun, exciting vibe created the perfect environment that Christina and Steve were envisioning. At the end of the evening, Seu Jacinto led the entire party through the venue and out the gates to send off Christina and Steve in a pedicab provided by Metrocycle Pedicabs. Then, those who were interested were invited to continue the celebration with the couple at Easy Tiger.

The couple honeymooned later that week by taking a road trip through West Texas. Spending that time adventuring together was the perfect way to start their new life as husband and wife!
