Favorite Quote from the Flower Girl

We have to share this quote from The Wedding Pink 2016 flower girl.

She asked if “we can do it again?”  She plays wedding everyday.  The following is her description of the wedding…”we walk down the aisle, we listen to the man talk and then we eat cake and dance.”  

So cute!

Lauren's Experience of being The Wedding Pink Bride

Lauren, The Wedding Pink 2016 bride

As I reminisce about our wedding, I have to remind myself that it was not a dream. Our flawless wedding was more than anything I could have ever imagined. It was perfect.

My Maid of Honor emailed me the link for The Wedding Pink. I submitted our story remembering that there were plenty of other deserving women. I was in disbelief when we found out that we were selected for the 2016 wedding. We were convinced that it was meant to be when we learned of our amazing wedding venue in Crested Butte.

My friends assumed that winning a wedding translated into a cookie-cutter wedding. Our amazing team of vendors allowed us to select all details and incorporate our personalities. It was an incredible experience to meet and connect with the vendors who donated their time and talent. It was humbling to hear the stories of how each vendor had been touched by cancer. All of the vendors went above all of our expectations. When we returned from our first planning trip in Crested Butte, we were in disbelief that our Pinterest board was going to be a reality at our wedding.

Matt and I had discussed a destination wedding. Our wedding in Crested Butte was more than anything I could have imagined. Crested Butte will always have a special place in our heart and we cannot wait to return. We thank The Wedding Pink for introducing us to a city that we would have never visited.

Thank you Cheryl, The Wedding Pink and our incredible vendors for our perfect day. Cheryl, there are no words to explain our gratitude. We will cherish the memories of our special day forever.

Mini-honeymoon at Taylor River Lodge

We love to make wedding dreams come true. After the wedding Lauren and Matt will enjoy an exquisite mini-honeymoon at Taylor River Lodge where they have graciously donated a 2 night stay in one of their cozy cabins.

Tucked away in a beautiful canyon and perched right above the river, Taylor River Lodge has one of the most unique and adventure-accessible locations in Colorado. Cast for trout right outside your cabin's front door, relax in the riverside Bath House or explore the Taylor Canyon and River on bike, foot, raft or kayak. Here at Taylor River Lodge, take advantage of the river's adventures and soak in the serenity of the natural surroundings.

Lauren + Matt's Wedding is 10 Days Away!

Holy cow, how time flies. Lauren and Matt are tying the knot 10 days from now in the charming Colorado mountain town of Crested Butte.

Everything is all lined up and ready to go. The long range forecast for Crested Butte is partly cloudy and a high of 66. Sounds perfect for a mountain top wedding!

We look forward to sharing photos and videos of this beautiful couple on their special day. Please stay tuned!

Wedding Pink Florals

I had a blast with Lauren, Matt, Heather from Crested Butte Events and Keli from Misty Mountain Floral. Lauren along with Matt's help has picked out the florals for their wedding.

Lauren is going with soft pinks and peaches, a gardeney feel with a rustic sophisticated look. Natural woodsy elements and birch containers. We think these will be a beautiful compliment to the outdoor mountain setting.

Thank you to Keli of Misty Mountain Floral for donating the florals to The Wedding Pink and helping make Lauren and Matt's wedding dreams come true!
