A Mountain Top Ceremony for a Modern Art Wedding

July 8, 2010

Sara & Andy’s mountain top wedding took place at Sapphire Point in Breckenridge, Colorado. They kept it intimate with only 50 guests to the wedding and reception, which was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver.

As well as keeping their wedding small and personal, the skipped a lot of the traditional fluff – for example instead of a cake they opted for ice cream sandwiches with sprinkles! They also didn’t want (or need) to add any extra decor to their ceremony location or their reception venue as the surrounding countryside and the museums art work spoke for itself and complemented their unfussy theme perfectly.

“We utilized the beauty of the spaces from the natural mountain top to the contrast of the modern space of the contemporary art museum to make the couples wedding photographs uniquely theirs” photographer Anna told me. “It was nice working with the two seemingly contrasting spaces to create wedding photographs that were cohesive and representative of the couples day, personalities and love for each other.” Finally, Sara & Andy chose not to have any bridesmaids or groomsmen.

Thanks to photographers Anna & Aaron for sharing this awesome day with us

  1. Can’t beat a gorgeous wedding in Suffolk! My favourite place!
    I love all the little details – the cake and the stationery are very cute!!
    And that bouquet too!! I love that all of the flowers aren’t ‘matchy-matchy’, that can get boring sometimes! I love flowers, and I like to see lots of variety!

    What a great choice of fabrics for the dresses and I love the vintage style as well. The flower girls’ dresses actually reminded me of a dress I made for a friend of mine two years ago but this model is really brilliant. A few days ago I discovered a great fabric store here in my native Toronto called King Textiles that offers the world’s finest fabrics and I always go there when somebody asks me to make a dress or other decorations for them. And I have to say the dress in the picture is a great inspiration for me to improve my older pieces and to create a new one from the fabrics I buy in that shop. 🙂
