Colorado Mountain Ski Resort Wedding With Pale Pink Decor

July 21, 2016

Pale Pink Wedding Decor for a Colorado Mountain Wedding

Today’s journal entry features a pretty pale pink wedding at Steamboat Resort. The planning for this pastel pink affair has been a pretty whirlwind so far. I first talked to Stan and Julie (father and mother of the bride) in December and found out that they were attempting to plan a huge destination wedding in Steamboat Springs with just about six months to work with. I actually was not worried in the least for them because they had so much enthusiasm and were incredibly excited about the planning process. And as you can see from the photos it all turned out splendidly.

They had help from Lora from Last Call Events who transformed the Champagne Powder Room at the top of the gondola into the epitome of pretty in pink. The soft pale pink color looks beautiful and was found throughout all of the wedding decor. From the custom printed pink napkins to the pastel pink floral design and even to the wedding party attire, the pale pink color for this wedding looked gorgeous at this summer mountain wedding.

In typical mountain weather fashion a thunderstorm blew through and we had to quickly rearrange some of the portrait plans but I love the dramatic feel of the light in their ceremony photos and wouldn’t have changed a thing. Seeing such a huge crowd of friends and family travel out from Omaha, Chicago, Kansas City and beyond to bestow their love on Lauren and Connor was really great to witness. Their party was incredibly high energy and everyone crowded the dance floor all night which is my favorite kind of party to photograph. One of the best parts of the night was when Connor went on-stage to show off a little bit of his incredible drumming talent for his friends and family. The live band Mannequin and the high altitude definitely helped keep the energy levels up all evening and you can see how much fun everyone was having in the images. Here’s to a life full of fun just like their wedding day for Lauren and Connor!
