Emily and Brett just recently moved from New York City to LA. However, since Emily has ties to Vail, Colorado, it was clear to them that a destination wedding in Vail was the perfect choice. Planning a destination wedding can be challenging, especially if you live very far away. Luckily, our lovely couple had wonderful help from their wedding planner, Jessica, who owns White Birch Weddings.
Emily and Brett tied the knot at the 10th restaurant in Vail, which boasts incredibly beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains. As a Vail wedding photographer, I always love to come back to the 10th—the mountain scenery never disappoints. Emily got ready for the wedding at her parents’ home. With the help of her closest friends, she stepped into her stunning Monique Lhuillier gown. A pair of pretty and sparkly Louboutin shoes completed Emily’s sophisticated New York look. Brett, Emily’s handsome groom, complemented her look in a navy blue custom suit. His name was embroidered inside the jacket, and even his white shirt was embroidered with his initials!
10th in Vail Wedding Photography Details
In order to give Emily and Brett lots of privacy for their first look, I chose a very intimate location far away from the crowds. Colorful florals and greenery made for stunning images! Together with Carrie, owner of the styling company Type A Society, I created fun images of Emily and Brett and their wedding party. We started with a backdrop of pine trees before capturing some Vogue-inspired images up on the deck of the 10th in Vail. These images were a perfect match for Emily and Brett’s sophisticated New York wedding style. Everybody seemed to have lots of fun!
For their outdoor wedding ceremony, House of Yonder created lush, low white and green floral arrangements to adorn the aisle. Those unobstructed mountain views during their ceremony left everyone in awe! Following the romantic ceremony, guests enjoyed a fun and colorful cocktail hour. Florals in shades of pink, blush, and ivory adorned the cocktail bar area and the cute puffs surrounding the bar as well.
The romantic color theme continued throughout reception, with floral arrangements in white and blush pink used as table centerpieces. Elegant elements including the place card wall and stage were decorated with florals as well. Even the photo booth received a special floral treatment! Featuring two French chairs surrounded by blooms cascading from the wall to the ground, this photo booth was nothing short of spectacular. Truly, Emily and Brett didn’t miss a thing while pulling together this unique, sophisticated Vail wedding!
