Lauren + Todd’s intimate Colorado mountain wedding took place in Telluride. If you’ve been there, you know how dreamy of a town it is to have a wedding. If you’re unfamiliar, the little ski village is nestled in a canyon surrounded by jagged peaks, some as high as 14,000 feet. In the summer, the canyons are covered in luscious trees and greenery and look like something out of a storybook. There is historical architecture with Victorian-era homes, boutiques, exceptional restaurants, and a small-town lifestyle. You can go between Telluride and Mountain Village by a free gondola, and you also have easy access to the Telluride Ski Resort and Uncompahgre National Forest.
Lauren and Todd wanted to cherish their special day celebrating their love in the mountains with their closest friends. Later that summer they would have their wine-country celebration with family. The day began slow near Telluride, CO, with everyone getting ready in the quaint mountain cabin at the base of the San Juan Mountain range. Once we were finished getting ready, we found a beautiful spot to conduct their ceremony overlooking the cabin’s private alpine lake. Lauren’s best friend led the ceremony. Afterward, we rejoined their friends, who warmly welcomed them into their beautiful reception hosted by the amazing Forage Sisters. Their friend who bakes as a hobby made their cake, and guests enjoyed an epic charcuterie board before indulging in a tasty three-course meal. The day was full of love, intimate conversation, and immaculate 360-degree views.
