This Week in Mountain Weddings: Modern, Handmade, and Classically Rustic

I spy with my little eye three fabulous mountain weddings in the blogosphere this week. In no particular order:

Fun and Modern Utah Wedding on SMP

Who says a mountain wedding has to default to "rustic?" With this fun and colorful wedding over on Style Me Pretty there is nary a pine cone in sight. Instead, bright turquoise accented with yellow and orange make every fun detail of this wedding pop, while natural elements such as the wooden centerpiece boxes and pine boughs at the ceremony site elegantly ground the wedding to the more classically natural beauty of the mountains.

Handmade Mountain Wedding Cali-Style on Ruffled

This couple also mixed it up with classically rustic elements like the wooden tables and the branch balls, combined with sweet baby's breath and mix-and-match vintage china.

Classic DIY Mountain Wedding on A Mountain Bride

Many mountain communities are tight-knit and community-oriented. For this lovely DIY mountain wedding, the couple chipped away at DIY projects a little bit at a time, spending $200-$300 a month as they had the extra cash. The couple's Dad's also chipped in at the BBQ, cooking up grilled salmon.

      Thanks ladies. @Lizzie, I was just talking to a close girlfriend today about how some families and friends (like mine) cherish being able to help out in a hands on way. The grilling Dads in the last wedding look like they are having a blast. What a way to support your kid and spend quality time with your daughter or son’s new in-laws.
