Organic Mountain Wedding ~ Ellen & Robby:
Ellen and Robby’s organic mountain wedding was a direct reflection of their joyful love story which began seven years ago in the salad department at the University of Iowa. As you will will see in photos below, captured by Stephanie with From the Daisies, they adore each other; it’s nearly impossible not to get swept away. Ellen and Robby invited their closest friends and family from all over the country to join them for their celebration weekend, which included a beautiful ceremony, grandma’s thumb print cookies, and the Iowa Hawkeye football game at a local pub.
When dreaming about the wedding, Ellen wanted the guests to experience the natural beauty of the Colorado mountains and Robby’s love for farming. As soon as Ellen stepped on to the property, she knew Spruce Mountain Ranch was the perfect back drop they needed. This led us to an organic, romantic aesthetic, over flowing with texture. The neutral color palette consisted of slate grey, soft greens, and white. Ellen surprised Robby with close friends playing the Beetles, while she walked down the isle. Where she joined Robby surrounded by friends, family, and their gorgeous outdoor ceremony. Luckily the rainy weather held off until after the pictures!
Though it was a bit chilly outside, the guests were greeted by a warm fire place and a beautifully decorated space by A Design Resource. We adore the escort cards in succulent pots and were featured in greenery boxes with flowering kale, artichokes, and moss. Desiring a farm to table feel, we incorporated wooden boxes, vintage bottles, and rustic risers. Then filled them with our white blooms, fun poppy pods, cotton and greenery to bring the tables “to life.”
Following the heart felt toasts by the bridal party and father of the bride, everyone delighted in the family recipe for Grandma Roger’s thumb print cookies and the organic cake by The Church of Cupcakes. Then, the DJ with A Music Plus filled the dance floor as everyone danced the night away under the hanging lights and bright stars.
