A Casual, Rustic Wedding at the Pines at Genesee in Golden, Colorado
Abby Liden, 28, a personal trainer, and Ian Edwards, 30, works in a sports retail store, met at a resort in Colorado. Abby had gone on a ski trip, and Ian was working, greeting guests outside. They started talking about skiing and their love for Colorado and hit it off. “The proposal itself reflected our relationship,” Abby says. “Laid back, genuine and heartfelt. We were having dinner at our favorite restaurant in Denver, and as I was reaching for me coat behind my seat at the end of the evening, I looked back up to see Ian holding out a beautiful ring. He asked me if I would marry him, and I said, ‘Of course!’” The couple wanted a relaxed, casual, natural vibe for their wedding. They exchanged vows on a secluded terrace surrounded by Aspen trees, followed by a rustic indoor reception overlooking Denver. They used shades of white, gray and brown accented with shades of orange, purple and green. Burlap details, as bouquet wraps and flower girl baskets, added a little rustic flair.
