Cool Guestbook Photo Matte Alternative

We've all seen the photo matte guestbook, where you sign the matte around the picture frame, but here's a cool twist on that idea.  Instead of a photo of you in the middle, have your first dance lyrics!  You can find this on Etsy of course!

Real Weddings: Who Says a Wedding Can't be Vintage and Contemporary?

I realized that we showed you only a sneak peek of Lisa and Dave's, July 3rd wedding....so here's the full look.

Lisa and Dave loved the feel of vintage flowers, but that their style was more contemporary.....so we said let's combine it!  I love how the ceremony turned out.  It felt so romantic!

They married on July 3rd at the Westin Riverfront Beaver Creek, on the lawn by the creek, with a gorgeous mountain backdrop.

Originally, Lisa was thinking she wanted an aspen tree arch, since that's what she saw mostly in magazines for Colorado mountain weddings.  Once we started getting in to her design, we realized it was a little too rustic for her vintage-contemporary feel.  I suggested a gated arch with a beautiful chandelier to really stand out from the backdrop. I love it, what do you think?

The guests enjoyed cocktails on the patio, then on to the reception!
Flowers by Bella Fiori
Guests enjoyed a candy station, and late night snack of pizza and Cheetos (the brides favorite!) as well as the fabulous photo booth provided by Jason+Gina .


 Beaver Creek has the largest fireworks show on the front range, and we timed the events of the night so that we could enjoy them. We opened all the doors to the ballroom, and the guests joined the couple on the patio to watch the show while the DJ played patriotic music....then back inside to dance!
