Meet The Team

the ladies behind rocky mountain bride

Hello Darling! This past August my husband and I had the joy of welcoming a little boy into the world, Luke Robert! Motherhood has been quite the journey, full of boundless happiness and growth into taking care of a little human. Before having him, someone told me that the days will be long, but the years will be short. I didn’t fully understand at first, but now, writing this while a crawling, eight month old explores every inch he can, I get it completely. The biggest lesson Luke has taught me is to take every day, good or bad, and treasure it. Look at life through the eyes of a growing child, and you are sure to gain a whole new perspective. Everything is new and exciting - every moment is a first. The awe and wonder from him is inspiration and moves me every day to find things in my life that give me those feelings as well. In this issue of RMB Colorado, you will find new, fun experiences to inspire your Rocky Mountain wedding. From a wagon ride in Telluride to a rooftop cocktail hour in Cherry Creek, your wedding should be filled with new and exciting firsts! We sought out love stories that were one-of-a-kind, fresh designs and new twists on classic looks. We hope that you find something in these pages that give you a child-like awe and wonder for telling your love story here in the mountains of Colorado. We at RMB are so honored and exciting to be a part of your wedding planning process. It is our mission to help give you the resources, inspiration and creatives to turn your dreams into reality, and in the process, new experiences that touch your soul and stay with you forever. images courtsey of coryn nelson location:

chelsea combe | editor | wy, ut, co From endless fields of wildflowers tucked below snow-capped peaks to the buzz of Denver’s historic neighborhoods on a summer evening, you are my heart’s belonging, Colorado. Over the last five years this state has challenged me to be the best and brightest version of myself, and I couldn’t imagine calling another place home. I am beyond grateful for not only the opportunities that I have been led to, but the authentic people I have connected with along the way. This community is rare, bold and unexplainably beautiful - as to why lovers of all kinds can’t seem to get enough. May the pages to follow inspire you to adventure longer and love harder.

Growing up in Montana, the Rocky Mountains have always been my grounding force, my home. Here at RMB, this region lies near and dear to all of our hearts and being able to share this with all of you is truly the best part. With this, I encourage you to look closely through these upcoming pages as so much love was put into each and every one! Mackenzie

Moving from Calgary to Colorado has been a transition, met with some of the best memories and people that I am immensely thankful for. The familiarity of the Rockies provided a warm welcome to this Canadian who is now proud to call Colorado home. To everyone planning their wedding here, and to the artists drawing on and celebrating inspiration from your state, this magazine is for you!

Originally from the Heart of America, Kansas City, I never knew I could feel so at home here in the Rockies. But, before I knew it, I was saying “I do” right where many of you will be - in the Rocky Mountains. I encourage you to flip through these pages with intention. Let the images and the creators within speak to your heart and vision.

As glimpses of sweet spring arrive here in Colorado, I can’t help but get excited for the much anticipated balmy days out on the trails and sitting around a fire in the woods with friends. Looking through the inspiration of this magazine, I hope you experience the feeling of aliveness that is so present here in the Rockies once the snow begins to melt and the sun lingers a little longer!

S TO RY “Our vision for this shoot was to complement Rist Canyon Inn’s one hundred and twenty year old farmhouse while incorporating a modern twist. The dried florals tied in the beauty of the pasture, ceremony site, flanked by the Rocky Mountains in the distance. We updated the look with a freestanding, floral install using metallic greenery, organic grasses and palms - giving a modern, sophisticated feel to the scene. All of those elements were brought together in Bellevue Hall to create texture rich decor while keeping an uber romantic vibe using creams and soft, blush florals. The earthy tones of the wood floors, paired with our wooden hexagon arch was gorgeous. We love this modern, farmhouse feel.” - Palmer Flowers, Loveland

Cara + Matt aspen

amy caroline photography

During the summer of 2016, Cara and Matt connected through the beloved Bumble in Chicago. Their first date took place over brunch, yet eventually led to a Gin Blossoms concert followed by a nightcap at a nearby jazz club. Matt made Cara laugh, and she knew there was something special about him. The two became inseparable! In December of 2017, the couple vacationed to Costa Rica. They snorkeled, hit the spa and celebrated over a beautiful dinner where Matt got down on one knee and asked Cara to be his wife. Elated, she said, “Yes!� They planned a romantic, summer wedding in Aspen for August 4th.

From New York to Napa Valley and the treasures in-between, our guests loved being greeted at our reception with a glass of their own bubbly with flair.

Cameron + Vince va i l

Cameron and Vince met their freshman year in college at Auburn University. Cameron’s brother initially introduced the two. However, they realized they shared many mutual connections. For three years Cameron and Vince grew closer as just friends.. until one night out together. Their undeniable chemistry quickly turned into love. After graduation, Cameron and Vince moved to Vail together to embark on their biggest adventure yet. Just before the holidays, their families traveled up from the South to spend Christmas in the mountains. On Christmas Eve night, Cameron’s manager unexpectedly let her off early to walk back home with Vince. The couple walked hand-in-hand as snow gently fell on the quiet town. Just then Vince got down on one knee in front of the beautifully lit Vail Village Christmas tree and asked Cameron to be his wife. Swept off her feet, she, of course, said, “Yes!” They planned a whimsical, late summer wedding at home for September 1st.

colorful colorado The small, Colorado mountain town of Vail hosted the most vibrant wedding day for Cameron, Vince and their guests. The bride incorporated a naturally elevated and colorful look to her overall design while adding a nod to her Southern roots through thoughtful details such as Magnolia leaf escort cards at the reception.

mama knows best “We went dress shopping in Denver for ‘the one’. I fell in love with a gown at my first appointment. However, we carried on for the experience and to give the purchase some thought. When we got to Anna Bé we were the only ones in the boutique. My mom pulled out a stunning, lace gown and begged me to try it on. Coming out of the dressing room in the Ines di Santo gown, I took one look at myself in the mirror and then to my mother and mother-in-law, and the three of us started balling. Right then I knew this was the gown I would be married in. As cliché as it sounds, I felt like a princess! It’s funny because I was truly waiting for something to speak to me. I guess Mama really does know best!”

husband and wife “Our first look was one of my favorite moments from the day. I met Vince underneath the gondola, and we walked to the closest hiking path to read our handwritten vows just the two of us. It was beyond surreal to look into each other’s eyes and share such intimate words from the heart before the big moment. I was on such a high after - almost as if I had already married my husband.”

speakeasy style

Bad Harriet is rich in history - Located in the basement of the historic Aspen Times building built in the 1800’s, Bad Harriet pays homage to the allure of prohibition with its swanky, speakeasy style. We love this look by Alon Livné. The gown’s classic neckline is paired with a rich velvet fabric for a look that blends past and present for the modern bride.


tile & texture

It’s all about texture and pattern play. The rich colors and fabrics at Hotel Jerome inspire grand entrances and rare beauty in every room. Stand out in a stunner like this Liz Martinez gown covered in decadent lace and fine embellishments.

Jacque + Dan ly o n s

Jacque and Dan’s love began in college at the Sundown Saloon - an infamous, Boulder dive bar. A few shared beers quickly revealed undenying chemistry, and the couple found love in a hopeless place. After seven years of love through adventure, Dan knew Jacque was the woman for him. In the spring of 2016 the two set off from their home in Vermont for a hike around the beautiful Lake Champlain. In tradition Dan stopped to soak in the views and skip a rock or two. Just as Jacque joined in the rock hunt, she looked up only to find Dan down on one knee. Completely taken back, she screamed! After calming down and landing back on her feet, she said, “Yes!” Jacque and Dan planned their boho bash in the hills of Lyons for September 9th.

the roots of love “Dan and I were inspired to take our guests back to the roots of our love story. It only felt right celebrating the beginning of the rest of our lives surrounded by the mountains where it all began. Nothing about our day was ‘weddingesque’, but it was us. It was our kind of party, and it was perfect.”

dreams worth sharing “When I first met Dan, he had a dream catcher hanging from the rearview mirror in his car. It’s a small detail that has always stuck with me. I thought dream catchers would not only fit perfectly with the theme of our wedding, but they would be a thoughtful and unique wedding favor. My girlfriends and I crafted all of them over a bottle of wine one night. We placed them on each of the tabletops and sent them home with our guests afterwards. It’s been so fun to see them treasured by our family and friends.”

Lydia + Ry denver

matt + jess

Nearly seven years ago, Ry and Lydia met at Sasquatch Music Festival in Washington through mutual groups of friends. That first evening they snuck off to catch a show alone together. On their way back to camp, Ry and Lydia found themselves on a glowing hillside overlooking their friends and the festival at large. The two slowed down to soak in the present as the sun set below the horizon. Just then, Ry pulled Lydia in and kissed her. He couldn’t help it! Although they were young, they connected over music, philosophy and the profound moments in-between. They spent the remainder of the summer falling in love. From a long distance relationship to international travels around the world together, Ry and Lydia’s love remained powerful and steadfast. In February of 2017, Ry took Lydia out to dinner at the Populist in Denver. Before their date, he coordinated with all of Lydia’s closest family and friends and had them text Lydia at the same time that night, “Say yes!” Sure enough, her phone blew up at dinner just in time for Ry to pull a ring out of his pocket. Elated, Lydia said, “Yes!” They planned an eclectic, urban wedding in Denver for May 27th.

#openyourrylyds

Ry and Lydia envisioned an artistic, woodsy and Morrocan inspired theme for their wedding day. They twisted traditions and bent rules to create a day from the heart. From wordly cuisine and design touches to one epic, tribal dance party, their undenying balance in one another met no boundary.

it is written in the stars “Our ceremony was moving and emotional. We wrote our own personal vows - promises and wishes for one another. Ry and I also included our parents in the ceremony to offer a blessing. My dad passed away from pancreatic cancer just a month before the wedding. He wrote a piece for my mom to read out loud. It was beyond special and a moment I will never forget.�

storytellers “Instead of traditional speeches, Ry and I decided we wanted to put together our own Moth session at our reception. Our family and friends gathered around our Morrocan lounge, designed by Eclectic Hive, to share stories of faith, love, trust and life with another being. Tennis kicked off the storytelling, and we even surprised our guests with a slam poem at the end! We reveled in this magical, community feel that was created, and it carried us through the rest of the evening.”

advice to rocky mountain couples “After your engagement, create a list of the components that typically surround a wedding day and prioritize them based on what is most important to the two of you. This will help you focus on what really matters. Follow what makes sense for you as a couple!”
