A Gold Winter Wedding at Trappers Cabin in Beaver Creek, Colorado
This small, rustic yet luxurious, ski-in-ski-out mountaintop resort was perfect for Suzi Molesta (32 and a nurse) and Kevin McInerney’s (31 and an entrepreneur) winter wedding. Knowing they wanted a very small family gathering and being avid skiers, they decided to turn their nuptials into a weekend ski trip for their 24 guests. “We fell in love with Trappers Cabin in Beaver Creek, Colorado, when we went to look at it,” Suzi says. “We loved that our families had to be a bit adventurous and arrive to the cabin by snow cat, and that we could have a beautiful ceremony on the outside deck. Waking up in a gorgeous cabin on top of the mountain, sitting next to the fireplace, spending time with the people we love the most and who will always be there for us as we embark on one of life's biggest journeys—it all came together and ended up being the best day of our lives.” Instead of using a traditional deep wintery palette, Suzi and Kevin had a more ethereal and light aura with shades of cream, peach, gray and gold. “I wasn't sure my vision would really work with the snow-covered surroundings, but I stuck with it and it did—thanks mostly to Caitlin, our unbelievable florist from Vintage Magnolia, and my good friend Lana from Lana's Shop, who did all our beautiful custom illustrations,” Suzi says. “Each of them could see my vision and they really helped make this a reality for me.” There are so many details we absolutely love—see them all, beautifully captured by Steve Stanton Photography, below.
