A Rustic Bohemian Wedding at The Lodge at Sunspot in Winter Park, Colorado
Karla Dodd (27 and an art therapist) and Nick Persichitte’s (27 and a landscape architect) wedding perfectly mixed shabby chic, bohemian and natural details in everything from the wood wedding venues and neutral lace bridesmaid dresses to the organic floral arrangements. The couple used an ivory, blush, champagne and gold color palette for their mountain wedding and added a lot of DIY details to pull their style into their day. Event Designer Pink Monkey Solutions helped the couple bring bring their vision to life, and Nicole Lenzen Photography beautifully captured all the details. Karla and Nick exchanged vows at Our Lady of the Snow, a rustic, old-world Catholic church complete with Gothic arched windows, rock detailing and huge round doors. Wanting a little adventure with their Colorado wedding, the couple and guests took the ski lift to The Lodge at Sunspot at 12,000 feet elevation. “Having a mountain wedding is quintessential Colorado, which we loved being able to share with our loved ones who don't have the privilege of the Rocky Mountains in their backyard,” Karla says. “Plus, who doesn't want to celebrate their marriage 12,000 feet high? It was an adventure to get to the top on those chair lifts! The view from the top is truly breathtaking. Such an amazing area to start our married life together.” One of the best parts of the evening was dessert! Karla’s aunt (a pastry chef) made a chocolate cake with tiramisu frosting, and the families also made Mexican cookies, chocolate truffles, chocolate-chip cookies and pizzelles (an Italian cookie, which was Nick’s grandmother’s recipe). They also brought in some Happy Cakes cupcakes, macarons and lemon bars. “Perhaps a bit overloaded on the dessert, but dessert is my favorite,” Karla says. They also added some local touches with Nick’s favorite beer from Renegade, a local brewery in Denver.
