Rustic, Same-Sex Mountain Wedding at a Private Residence in Alta Lakes, Colorado
For their rustic mountain wedding, Erin Hamilton, 34, a writer and Amy Smith, 30, the owner of Horizon Maintenance, LLC (who met through a mutual friend) brought their guests to the middle of nowhere. Well, 30 minutes outside of Telluride. Surrounded by lakes and mountains at an altitude of 11,300 feet , Amy and Erin hosted a multi-day celebration full of quirky DIY elements, sentimental details and salvaged antiques. "We wanted to pay proper homage to the amazing setting while allowing it be naturally rustic and adventurous," says Erin. Wood signage, local wildflowers and a neutral color palette of whites and black let the incredible surrounding take center stage.
