A Simple, Rustic Mountain Wedding at Crested Butte Mountain Resort in Crested Butte, Colorado

Lauren Goldman (29 and a marketing assistant) and Wes Israel (32 and works in sales) met at a restaurant in Denver, Colorado, and almost six years later, Wes proposed. The couple loved Crested Butte Mountain Resort, and after touring several different sites at the resort, the chose Ten Peaks because of its swoon-worthy views of the mountains. They had an outdoor ceremony so guests could take in their gorgeous surroundings before moving to a simple tented reception. Inspired by the aspen trees and blue skies, the couple used a neutral color palette with bright blue accents and decorated with burlap, lace and wood throughout their day. “My style inspiration really came from our location,” Lauren says. “I wanted our surroundings to be the main focus and the decor to be secondary.” The tented reception was decorated with simple white linens, burlap flags and lisianthus and evergreen centerpieces. At the end of the night, the couple enjoyed a three-tier white fondant cake and?danced into the night to their band. “We chose the band because of their ability to play music that all generations would enjoy," Lauren says. "It was great to see all ages of guests dancing and enjoying themselves.”
