Real Wedding : Caroline & Edmund : Part 1

When I saw this wedding on Katie and Jenna's blog {Jenna Walker Photography}, I knew I had to see if I could post it. It's absolutely beautiful and the photographs speak for themselves. The wedding was an intimate event with 40 of the couples closest family and friends.

Wedding Date: Sunday, November 16, 2008
Location: Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch in Beaver Creek, Colorado
Other Vendors: Heather at Table 6 Productions and Cindy at The Perfect Petal
Additional Photographer: Kevin Von Qualen

Below: Caroline wearing the necklace that Edmund gave her as a wedding gift. Caroline had her mother's keepsake ring pinned to the inside of her dress {her "something borrowed" and "something blue"}
Below: Love these shots of the bride with her attendants and Edmund with the groomsmen walking with the Colorado mountainscape behind them.
Below: Check out the unique bridesmaids bouquets. Caroline's vows were printed on purple paper and carried behind her bouquet. The readings were from their favorite classic books, including the Velveteen Rabbit, and rolled into ornate scrolls.
Below: The ceremony was held outdoors and guests were kept warm with space heaters and wintry blankets. The couple planned a rose ceremony where they gave roses to their parents and grandparents.
Below: Love these portrait shots of the couple. Caroline's cathedral veil was embroidered with their initials and wedding date.
