Mountain brides always have the best style. This hasn’t been more true than of Carol and Ryan’s Estes Park wedding from Kathryn Kim Photography. Carol is stunning in her embellished off the shoulder gown with draped pearl back! Her timeless and elegant look is an absolute dream and when you add in the breathtaking Colorado mountainside, it’s absolute perfection. Carol and Ryan kept their wedding details simple and romantic as well, adding in a bit of playfulness with their table numbers, which they named after their favorite breweries.
Why a Mountain Wedding?
We love Colorado’s beauty and enjoy being outdoors, so it fit our personalities to have a mountain wedding.
What are three things you’re glad you did?
We are so glad that we took dance lessons, hired a wedding planner, and had a photo booth at the reception!
What are 3 things you wished you hadn’t done or hadn’t worried about?
We could have worried less about guest transportation and lodging, but that’s it.
How did you find your vendors?
The day was even better than we could have imagined, which could be because we’re both pretty laid back and were just happy to have our loved ones in one spot! We primarily used The Knot and Wedding Wire to find our vendors with some referrals as well.
What’s your biggest piece of advice for other couples planning a mountain wedding?
Our biggest piece of advice is to not get too caught up in the details and to be flexible on the day of. Chances are your schedule will slip and something out of your control will go wrong, but YOU are in control of you how you react.
