Woodsy Mountain Chic From the bride.. Nick’s parents’ ranch has become a very special place for us. It was where we took our first vacation together and where we have stayed every winter since. We also got engaged on the ranch and knew it would be the perfect place to have our wedding. Our theme was woodsy mountain chic with a soft pink and burlap brown color palette. It was important to us to have a simple and intimate ceremony focused on God. This was easily achieved by the gorgeous scenery and the simplicity of décor…only white chairs in a semicircle, people, and mountains. One of my favorite moments was after the ceremony when I finally had time to be with my husband. The best addition to that were Drew and Amy from IlluminArts Photography who were taking pictures of us, but it was like they were invisible while Nick and I enjoyed each others company. Those were my favorite moments. During the cocktail hour we served the groom’s drink, Jack Daniels and Diet Coke, and the bride’s drink, sweet tea, vodka, and lemonade. Our playlist didn’t download correctly from iTunes and two minutes before the wedding party was announced we were asking everyone if they had the specific songs we needed for the first dance, father-daughter, and mother-son dances. We were in the middle of a meadow in the mountains with no cell phone service. Turns out, between all our guests, we were able to find the songs.
We made several comical whitewash signs to lead our guests down the long winding dirt road to the ranch.
