Anne Marie Dunbar (30 and an interior designer) and Adam Ostmeyer (33 and a general contractor) wanted to combine their love of the outdoors with their professional talent for design by creating a wedding with a strong mountain modern aesthetic. Blending the soft beauty of mountain wildflowers with elements of wood and elk antlers, the couple were able to bring the cozy warmth of a midcentury cabin outside so that guests could enjoy the incredible views. Because having perfect weather was crucial to keeping their guests comfortable, Anne Marie couldn't help but check the forecast every 10 minutes, making sure that everyone would stay dry and warm. Luckily, the weather held out for a perfect, sunny mountain wedding day. —Rory Kress

The pair set the tone for their wedding day with their nature-inspired stationary suite, which included a wood veneer insert and other, neutral tones. A ribbon bearing the couple's initials and the silhouette of elk antlers bound the invitations together. Their save-the-date postcards bore a drawing of the mountains around Crested Butte, Colorado.
The bride chose a pink and red bouquet that blended roses, peonies and orchids.
Anne Marie selected a gown that she felt would reflect the natural beauty of the landscape. "The gown was simple yet architectural, classic and timeless."
The bride opted for varying shades of purple for her four bridesmaids. All kept their hair and makeup loose and natural in keeping with the day's setting.
The bride's father dressed to match the groom. He walked Anne Marie down the aisle to meet Adam at the arbor for their vows.
The couple selected Ten Peaks in Crested Butte, Colorado, because of the bride's family roots in the area and the fact that the couple enjoy exploring the outdoors there year-round: from skiing to hiking. The pair felt the location perfectly represented the reasons they love Colorado.
The groom's boutonniere matched the bridal bouquet in miniature.
Just a few days before the wedding, Adam fell off his mountain bike and suffered a few nasty scrapes. But when the time came for the couple's first look, he'd managed to make a full recovery.
The groom wore a charcoal gray suit with a colorful plaid tie. His four groomsmen—and the couple's fathers—also dressed to match.
"The decor simply highlighted the natural beauty of the surroundings we were in," Anne Marie says. The pair designed an arbor overlooking the East River Valley for the spot where they said their vows.
The three flower girls were nieces and children of the couples' friends. They wore flower garlands in their hair to match the bridal bouquet.
The couple selected fabrics, furniture and design elements that reflected their modern aesthetic, bringing the warmth and feel of a mountain cabin to the outdoors.
The party continued under a white tent bedecked with string lights. Tall, floral centerpieces brought pops of color into the space.
Long, wooden farmers' tables preserved a rustic, mountain aesthetic, while industrial-style chairs added a modern twist.
A variety of centerpieces sat atop the tables. All included antlers, steel, wood and flowers in rich, red and pink tones.
