A Telluride Wedding


As if Telluride isn't the most magical Colorado mountain town already, your husband's sister goes and announces she'd like to get married there. So now we throw romance and major family memories into the experience that is Telluride. Love is a battlefield a gondola ride.

Well now, I've always wanted to go to Telluride and here we were with the perfect reason. Thanks for getting married, Aunt Katie & Uncle Steve! It was an honor to be a part of this day.

The gondola lifted us up to the San Sophia Overlook.

From this amazing view, you can see both the town of Telluride down below and its surrounding peaks with waterfalls like slow-moving rivulets from a distance and the Coors beer can mountain on the other side. {Neither of which are pictured in this photo, but rather my husband, the groom, and my husband's brother.}

The children preceded the bride, Von Trapp style. Look at them. Glorious.

Hurry up, Paxton!

Here comes the bride!

And just like that, on the San Sophia Overlook, with the Sneffels range as a backdrop, we saw two people vow to one another.

So then we celebrated by taking tons of photos. Which was surprisingly easy when it's a small, intimate wedding that only close family attends. I'm a fan.

And giving our parents heart attacks by nearly running off the overlook.

It was windy! Look at how windblown our hair is. {lel}

Thank God these two newlyweds understood there would be a need for a break between wedding and reception. We headed back down into Mountain Village to rest with the kids.

Justin napped with Paxton while us girls took it easy, refreshed, and then we headed back up the mountain a couple hours later.

We stepped off the gondola at the top of the mountain. Unlike in winter, during which you'd be wearing ski boots and masks and parkas, today we arrive in formal wear.

Right off the gondola into Allred's, which I can safely say is the fanciest restaurant Sander and I have ever been to together. {Please notice their matching outfits with elbow patches, I just slay myself. My boys. 😍}

So in Allred's, the bride and groom had booked our small wedding party in a private room overlooking Telluride.

With a sommelier to see to the adults, and coloring books & crayons to take care of the kids.

It was really lovely.

From a menu, we got to choose our own edible adventure. We picked the lobster bisque over salad, obvs. {I had never tried lobster before because I have a thing about seafood, but this I've always wanted to try a good version of. It was amazing.}

And while Sander ordered the lamb, I played it safe with the beef.

And Paxton enjoyed the most amazing kids meal he will ever get.

Crème brûlée, a favorite.

And to top it all off, we enjoyed an amazing view the entire evening.

The sommelier was good to us, and Sander was thankful that the designated driver was the gondola. He sang "New York, New York" to us all the way down.

But that view....I'm missing the view. I miss Telluride.

Telluride Wedding

Can you blame me?

Telluride Wedding

I need to go back.

So I hope you're working on renewing your vows, Aunt Katie and Uncle Steve.

Cheers,

  1. Normally wedding appetizers are mediocre and forgettable. We had people talking about our food even weeks after the wedding. Though the Seattle Wedding venues are beautiful. You can bring in any type of furniture or use their traditional round tables.

  2. I must have emailed about six different florist regarding Flower Bouquets for our wedding, and what I found is, unless you are planning a big to-do, a lot of places just won't bother with you- they literally just ignore you. This is the only one who emailed me back. She was very professional, and very courteous.
