Brianne and Kyle always envisioned their wedding to be an intimate, timeless affair with just their immediate family in attendance. Originally from Maryland, Brianne and Kyle wanted to invite their families to their new adopted home state, Colorado. With gorgeous mountain views and natural beauty, Telluride was the chosen town to celebrate their nuptials. What may look like a COVID-adapted ceremony was actually their "Plan A" from day one and Colorado wedding photographer CAT GALLETTI PHOTOGRAPHY captured it beautifully!
Gorgeous bride Brianna tells us; "We always knew we wanted a very small wedding with immediate family. We envisioned a mountaintop ceremony that was very simple, classic and timeless. Our colour palette was neutrals with champagne and blush tones. Our style vision was a formal, black-tie affair. Because all of our family members were traveling out of town, we really wanted to focus on welcome bags and “Colorado-Themed” gifts. We completely DIY-ed our welcome bags and added many mountain touches.
My bouquet charms were in memory of my grandma and grandpa, who passed away a few years ago. During our ceremony, we had everyone in our family participate in some way. Both of my younger sisters and my grandma had ceremony readings, which was really special. We wrote our own vows and being such a small, intimate ceremony it was so meaningful to say them to one another surrounded by our favourite people. Our favourite crafted detail was definitely our dinner table. We rented a home in Mountain Village and also rented tables & chairs. My sisters set up a beautiful tablescape, surrounded by mountain views."
"Our florals by BRIDAL VEIL FLORAL were very simple with ivory and whites with my favourite flower, peonies. My bridal consultant, Alexandra from ANNA BE BRIDAL was absolutely amazing and helped me find my dream dress. I tried on two different ROMONA KEVEZA gowns and loved the top of one and bottom of another, so we created a custom gown with both elements. It was so comfortable and everything I was looking for in a dress. Our cake was a classic, elegant cake with hand-made flowers. We also had a groom’s cake that was travel-themed, as we’ve been traveling as a couple for years. It’s one of our favourite things to do together, so the cake highlighted all of our favourite places.
My advice for brides-to-be is to enjoy your day, don’t stress about anything (because everything will end up perfect) and try to take it all in. The entire day flies by so fast. If you can, try to find a few minutes to be alone with your groom and really take it in."
