Karine and Carl let the colors of their reception venue define the theme and palette of the wedding--rich forest green, cream, and hints of gold and pink were woven throughout the celebration.

Karine and Carl booked Dunton Hot Springs site unseen but couldn't have been happier with their choice; the variety of activities available to guests made for a fun wedding weekend adventure!
Carl and his groomsmen rented kilts and wore the full outfit. The guys had so much fun in them--we were all joking that they would be wearing them home! Karine says.
The groomsmen all wore full kilt regalia, including the lace up Ghillie brogues.
The bride's mother made the traditional, one-tier Scottish wedding cake.
A fur stole added a vintage touch to Karine's bridal look.
An illustrated map helped guests find the reception site, Denton Hot Springs.
The couple's reception decor was very simple and featured flowers in low, loose settings on each of the tables, inspired by the mountainside location.
The small outdoor ceremony was held under an open-air chapel overlooking the mountainside.
A wild gathering of cream-colored freesias, roses, scabiosas and stock made up Karine's bouquet.
The green place cards featured a tiny design of two swallows kissing.
Each place card included either a song lyric about love or a quote about the love of eating and cooking.
Two green wreaths accented with white flowers hung on the doors of the reception cabin.
Karine and Carl's ceremony spoke of the beauty of marriage and the unity of friendship, with references to the nature that surrounded the couple.
The bridesmaids wore champagne dresses from J. Crew. Karine gave each bridesmaid a peach pashmina to stay warm in the cold weather.
Karine's vintage inspired gown was a sheath column dress with a beautiful lace overlay. It was simple, feminine and slightly bohemian--perfect for a mountain wedding, she says.
