A Mountain Chic Wedding at Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa at Beaver Creek in Avon, Colorado

Tara Donovan (28) and Danny Gallagher (28) met at the University of Colorado in Boulder. Danny proposed on the Fourth of July weekend at Devil’s Thumb Ranch.The couple chose the Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa at Beaver Creek because of their love for the mountains. They knew they wanted to get married outside and wanted their friends and family to enjoy their favorite place. Inspired by the contemporary but rustic atmosphere of their venue, they decorated with rustic accents such as wine barrels, burlap and lanterns. They used navy, burgundy and ivory in their color palette and worked with Cori Cook Floral Design to create lush bouquets of orchids, dahlias and roses. Tara and Danny exchanged vows overlooking their beloved mountains before heading inside for their reception. They enjoyed various cupcakes, whoopie pies, cake pops, cookie pops and oreo bites by Batter Cupcakes along with a one-tier white cake for the newlyweds. Then they danced into the night to Elite DJ & Production. The best part was the delicious menu! From the Bride: “We served a Moscow Mule as the signature cocktail. We served bacon-wrapped scallops, lamb lollipops and Thai chili shrimp appetizers. For the reception, we served a choice of crispy chicken with brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes and a short-rib with mushrooms and polenta.”
