Real Wedding : a mountain view + two birds perched in the tree of life

Today's beautiful Colorado wedding of Liz and Eric was submitted to me from Angie of Sapphire Celebrations and photographed by Rachael Grace Photography. The concept for their wedding began with a wire bird and the theme blossomed with the design of the paper goods - two birds perched in the tree of life. To incorporate the groom's French Canadian heritage and his bride's American culture, invitations and programs were printed in both English and French.

The Keystone Timber Ridge deck with its magnificent mountain view was chosen as the site for Liz and Eric's first glimpse of each other and their wedding ceremony.

The venue was Timber Ridge in Keystone Mountain and three distinct table designs were created for the Timber Ridge décor. The tables were monochromatic with green, orange, or brown and each table incorporated the wire bird, birch bark, accordion vases, and color-coordinated floral, napkins, and chair ties.

There was a half hour gondola ride to the top of the mountain for the wedding and at the end of the night, glow sticks were provided for the kids so they wouldn't be scared on the dark gondola ride back down. So sweet.

Thank you so much Angie for sharing today's beautifully scenic Colorado wedding with my readers. To see more from Sapphire Celebrations, please visit their blog and of course, to see more from Rachael Grace Photography, please visit her blog too.
