Baby It’s Cold Outside – Winter Wedding
Happy Monday! As we wait for a blizzard here in the northeast, we bring you a sweet snowy winter wedding all the way from Colorado. Check out this bride’s bouquet. It’s stunning.From the photographer: Mariya & Andy had a beautiful snowy winter wedding at Wild Basin Lodge. Mariya and Andy met through mutual friends, though they did not set them up. Andy did catch Mariya’s eye at a few gatherings. Estes Park was the perfect wedding location for them because guests could experience the beauty of Colorado without sitting on I-70. They fell in love with the Wild Basin Lodge as their venue! Mariya’s sisters did a hilarious dance toast and her father gave a touching speech. Mariya and Andy loved every minute of their winter wonderland wedding!
From the Bride: How did you choose your dress and where did you get it? I got it the day after we got engaged at Amanda’s Bridal and Tux in Arvada! I only tried on a few dresses and was able to buy the sample, which was great because we only had a 4-month engagement.
Your love story? Andy and I met through mutual friends and started dating in October of 2012 after an annual dinner party that I host. Andy lived in Boulder and I was in Denver at the time, so we survived on Tuesday night date nights and weekend adventures until Andy moved to Denver. The rest is history!
How/why what made you decide on Wild Basin Lodge? We knew we wanted a small wedding and did not want to spend a lot of time planning the details. I loved the venue itself but also how easy they were to work with and how reasonable their prices were.
What made you pick the decor and colors that you did? I love the color blue! The bridesmaids dresses were blue but the flowers had more of a cream and green theme to them. I saw a bouquet on Pinterest that I loved that had greenery and also succulents, which I loved. The bridesmaids bouquets and the centerpieces also had pine cones, which was really unique.
