Colorado-based wedding planner of, As You Wish, says “I DO” atop of Vail Mountain. Saturday, August 4th, 2018 started as a warm and sunny day, but by mid-day, the Allison & Barrett enjoyed a quick post-ceremony rain storm that their guests could view from the Vail Wedding Deck. Jennie Lou Art painted the ceremony for a very special keepsake for the family. The bride had a special moment with her Dad before having her “first look” with her soon to be groom under the Eagle Bohn Gondola with the fabulous Frances Photography & Hunter Saillen Videography capturing the special moments.
After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed cocktails poolside at the Lions Square Lodge while listening to tunes by DJ Rockstar Aaron. On the way down to the clear top tent provided byAlpine Party Rentals for the black-tie reception, guests viewed their escort cards on the boxwood champagne wall by Newberry Brothers to “Sip & be Seated”. The couple were announced into the tent and plated dinner service began while viewing the stunning cream floral centrepieces & gold & emerald green dÃ©cor from The Perfect Petal.
The heartfelt toasts were then given by the bride’s father, Vince, followed by matrons of honors, Kelly & Beth and best man, JR. The delicious cake by The Noshery was had by all. All of the detailed stationery was done by the talented Sophie for Sweet Zion Paperie; including menu cards, table numbers, bar menus, weekend itineraries, escort cards, save the dates, invitations and the couple’s favorite playing card favors for their love of games. The first dance, Harvest Moon by Neil Young, was sung by their band, Supermagick and Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances followed before guests joined them on the black and white dance floor that was never left empty!
Guests danced the night away under the Colorado stars that made for an unforgettable weekend that was truly everything that Allison & Barrett could have ever dreamed of and more!
