A Whimsical Mountain Wedding at Sun Valley Resort in Idaho
Although Sun Valley Resort is most popular during ski season, Sarah Vallimarescu and Ben Tsujiura took advantage of its natural summertime beauty for their destination wedding. A wildflower motif began with a whimsical, brightly colored invitation suite, and it continued with a custom monogram and painted wedding cake. “The contrast of this natural element with touches of formality, like tuxedos and long dresses, made for a weekend that was a true reflection of our tastes,” the bride says. Sarah and Ben’s ceremony took place at a lookout point on Bald Mountain. The resort built a wood platform for the aisle, which was lined with benches and flowers. Guests moved inside a high-ceilinged tent for the reception, and tall greenery arrangements gave the space a rustic garden theme. Vintage-inspired floral tablecloths broke up the neutral color palette—as did the rustic centerpieces of pink, blush and rose blooms.
Our favorite #MakeTradition Moment: “The most personalized element of the wedding was our choice to write and deliver our own vows. This was such a touching moment that we will both remember for the rest of our lives,” Sarah says.
