When you think of mountain weddings you generally think of something a little rustic, so I love that Jenn & Bob broke the mold and have gone with a slightly more polished look incorporating a lot of black, grey and white. The bridesmaids look fabulous in their varying styles of black. The lovely ASHLEY SAWTELLE who captured these beautiful images, gives us a brief rundown of their day… oh can I just mention how much I LOVE their chuppah – so pretty!!
“Their wedding took place at Beano’s Cabin in Beaver Creek. This venue is tucked into the mountains, surrounded by Aspen groves and breathtaking views of Beaver Creek Ski Resort. They went for a delicate and timeless feel rich in Jewish tradition. They had a traditional Ketubah signing before their ceremony, which including a beautiful and handmade document that is unique to their marriage. Other details included a custom chuppah, candlelit long tables with romantic blooms on top of moss logs to tie in with the mountain theme and a delicate three tier cake with beautiful blooms.”
Kyndra and Trevor’s wedding is one of my all time favourites!! Talk about a stylish duo, and MARION H PHOTOGRAPHY has done THE most incredible job documenting their Austin, Texas wedding. The kind of images that make my editors heart skip a beat! So of course I was thrilled to feature it in MAGNOLIA ROUGE MAGAZINE.
These two had a special connection from the moment they met. The soulmates first became friends when Kyndra moved to Texas as a teenager, and started dating a few years later. After a sweet, intimate proposal, they started planning a natural wedding that was as romantic as it was down to earth, and became a labour of love for the couple and their families. Both MARION (whose work the bride had admired for some time) and videographer PASCAL DÉLÉ flew in especially from France to document the big day.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL: We had been dating for about four years. We knew we were soul mates from the first day. Trevor was about to transfer to a another city to finish up college and asked me to go with him. Of course I said yes. He planned a little weekend getaway for the two of us before our big move. He took us to San Antonio to stay right on the river walk which was so beautiful and sweet. We had of course talked about marriage but I had no idea it would be this weekend he’d ask. The first night he took me on a sweet boat ride dinner and we walked around, talking about our new adventure. The next morning, I woke up, opened my eyes, saw the ring and heard him behind me say “marry me?” It was exactly how I could have dreamt a proposal. Just the two of us, cozied up. It was the most magical morning of my life. Looking at this person who I have literally been in love with forever. He wants to spend the rest of his life with me. Wow.
Rather than have the traditional style of Russian wedding which is most often held at a restaurant, this gorgeous duo wanted their wedding to have a more European feel to it, and especially to hold it outdoors. To ensure their guests felt completely relaxed they had lounge music playing, lawn games, and had a barbeque. They used the humble olive as a running theme throughout their day – makes you realise how versatile it is when you see all it’s uses!! ANASTASIYA BELIK captured all the beauty of their day.
