Greenery was the dominant theme, set against a background of neutral creams, whites, and blushes. Punches of gold provided accent. My husband and I are in love with all things mother nature and the outdoors, so it was an obvious choice to let earthy tones and textures take the lead as the theme for our Rocky Mountain wedding. I also have a secret love for vintage, so I let that shine through with a variety of unique pieces such as individual wine glasses and old vintage bottles that we collected at estate sales and thrift stores over the two years leading up to our wedding.
Our 3 best moments of the day were 1. Going up the chairlift for some photos. In all the chaos of the day, this was a moment of peace and quiet where we could just breathe, take in the view, and enjoy each other’s company. Plus we got some awesome photos out of it! 2. Saying our vows. We were both so nervous leading up to it, but once we got up there it all just happened so naturally. Our commissioner Rob was amazing too, he kept us laughing and smiling throughout the whole thing, and the outpouring of love that we both felt was really amazing. 3. Apparently it’s a Ringheim family tradition to give all the men at the wedding the chance to dance with the bride during one, fast-paced song. I did not know this in advance, and nearly fell over my dress being whirled around the dance floor, but it was so much fun!
For our wedding song we danced to “Alright With Me” by Andreya Triana. My husband and I both wanted to pick a unique song that avoided all the obvious cliches, and which really spoke to us both. We were really struggling to find the right one. Then one night while browsing SoFar Sound videos on YouTube, we came across this beautiful, soulful ballad. We both just sort of looked at each other and said, yep, that’s the one.
My absolute favourite details were the flowers and greenery, done by my Aunt. She did such a beautiful job creating all of the lush greenery pieces, it really made my whole vision come to life. I actually painted the signs myself and was really pleased with how they turned out. My favourite signs were two vintage barn windows that I picked up, which I cleaned and painted, then drew on with chalk paint. My husband and I 3D printed over 100 tiny forest animals which we spray painted gold and set on everyone’s plate next to their name cards. We used these to designate tables instead of traditional numbers and they were a big hit!
