Brittany and Andrew wanted a wedding venue with picturesque views and beautiful surroundings. “For our wedding day, we went with a boho-mountain vibe,” Rachel explains. “The Rocky Mountains were our backdrop, and we decorated our day with earthy pastels, burlap and lace.” Rachel echoed her romantic theme with a gorgeous lace dress and floral crown. “My dress made me feel like a beautiful bride, yet it was so comfortable and very me,” she remembers. “And there’s something magical about wearing fresh flowers in your hair.”
Both Brittany and Andrew admit that the highlight of the day was when they first laid eyes on each other as Rachel walked down the aisle with her father. “When I saw Andrew at the end of the aisle all I could do was smile,” says Rachel. “We both had perma-grins on our faces for the rest of the day. We felt like we were in the perfect place in time and wanted to stop the clock and savour it for as long as possible.”
Following their ceremony, the couple enjoyed a wedding reception, which lasted until the wee hours. “We had a really eclectic group of guests and musical tastes and everyone from my seven-year-old nieces to our parents friends were dancing all night.”
