A Natural, Rustic Wedding at Golden Ledge in Telluride, Colorado
Avid skiers and mountain bikers Julie Denison and Chase Marston hosted their "I dos" atop Golden Ledge Mountain in Telluride, Colorado. "We wanted to celebrate our joy with the beauty of the mountains," Julie says. "We coined the term 'country chic mountain shindig' to epitomize the style and feel that we wanted." The ceremony took place in an aspen grove, with picturesque trees, plants and a majestic snow-capped view. A simple arch of branches framed the couple during the vow exchange, and planters of sunflowers added vibrant color. The tented reception's elegant aesthetic came through in details like blue striped tablecloths, patterned dinnerware and pops of blue and yellow flowers. "We also wanted to keep the imagery of the mountains front and center, so the tent had clear side walls. We were also able to bring a few trees inside," Julie says. A wood outdoor bar, along with escort cards dangling from thin trees, rounded out the rustic décor.
