The design inspiration for the wedding at The Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch was inspired by the purple mountain majesty of our beautiful Rocky Mountains. The lavender hues in the color palette along with the soft touches of blush, blues and white are reminiscent of the luminous evening sky in the Vail valley.
We styled each part of the day to complement the rustic beauty of the timber architecture with the soft and feminine tones of the decor elements. The ceremony took place on the skier’s bridge, covered in natural green grass and views of the surrounding peaks. For the reception space, we choose the Anderson Cabin for the romantic intimate dinner. The table was set with subtle textural linens to complement the vintage French Limoges tableware. Vintage mix and match crystal was also used for each place setting and the champagne toasts. The floral centerpiece was asymmetrically arranged to create the mood of wild beauty. Each bloom was added for texture and its subtle purple hues and the beautiful paperie suite with whispers of the lavender and its elegant calligraphy was added to the champagne flutes
For a fun twist, ice cream, cones, and wedding cake covered in pressed dried pansies, surprised the guests for the dessert station. The final scene is the show stopper! Our beautiful couple is shown in their getaway car, a gorgeous vintage 1958 Jaguar XK 150. It was truly the perfect touch to end a perfect day.
