Vail Wedding Day 

Just as Kate and Landon were wed in holy matrimony this June evening, a natural mountain feel was married with a touch of Dallas glam to celebrate the Texas couple becoming one in the Rockies.

Kate, a Denver native, and the longtime Dallas-area resident Landon got married at Donovan Pavilion, a cabin tucked into a cove of Aspen trees at the base of one of Vail's many peaks. 

"Their Colorado and Texas styles were merged with a color palette of ivory, green and navy with pops of gold and a touch of wood hues. Farmhouse tables and wooden cross-back chairs were complemented by gold-beaded chargers and gold silverware. A sampling of acrylic and gold calligraphy included the table menus, the signature cocktail list at the bar and signage at the outdoor s'mores station, preserving an airy feel while robust green and white flower arrangements reached toward the rafters. The four-tier cake "floated" above a bed of white roses at the entrance to the pavilion.

The bride's favorite part, though? The details, such as acrylic stir sticks in champagne glasses that acted as guests' escort cards, or the monogram light projected onto the dance floor. The groom added his own flare for the unique, brewing a pecan poblano porter for the wedding guests and bottling it with a custom "'I Do' Brew" label and monogrammed caps.
