A Garden-Inspired Mountain Wedding at Sonnenalp Hotel in Vail, Colorado
Turning to garden-inspired details, Elizabeth Schovee (25 and works in hotel development) and Matthew MacFarlane (24 and works as a trader) had a whimsical mountain wedding full of colorful floral arrangements. They used yellow as their main color and accented it with shades of blush and orange for a summery palette. The bridesmaids wore Jenny Yoo Annabelle dresses in sterling gray for a softer, more neutral look. “The best part about the dress was that the girls could tie the sashes however they wanted,” Liz says. “So while everyone had the same dress, they could make it their own!” Liz and Matt exchanged vows at the Beaver Creek Chapel because they loved that it was on the mountainside, along the creek and among the aspens. Plus, it had always been a childhood dream for Liz, a Denver native. The reception at Sonnenalp Hotel in Vail, Colorado, was decorated with pastel floral arrangements, twinkling candlelight, ivy-covered chandeliers and hanging mercury glass vases for a romantic, ethereal garden aura. Liz and Matt danced to “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” for their first dance on the balcony terrace patio space that opened to string lights.
