An Elegant Autumnal Mountain Wedding at the Sonnenalp Hotel in Vail, Colorado

Claire Allen and Solomon Chernet’s classic wedding included modern twists and an autumn color palette of gray, white and orange.

Claire and Solomon held their intimate ceremony in the Vail Interfaith Chapel, a cozy church with a stunning all-wood ceiling. “I wanted something that was not overly feminine, 

but still felt like the most glamorous day of my life,” Claire says of the storybook-worthy setting. “I wanted my husband to feel comfortable and to know I would love it forever.”

At the reception, vintage-inspired table linens and classic French country chairs were modernized with carved wood table numbers and the glass ceiling. 

The couple chose John Legend’s “Stay With You” for their first dance. “We just felt it moved us after our long love story,” Claire says of their 10-year romance.
