Jessi and Nick’s classic winter wedding at the Canyons Resort is a perfect picture of classic winter elegance. I love Jessi’s faux fur wrap, rustic elegant bouquet and gorgeous ruffled wedding gown. And don’t you just love how she styled her bridesmaids. Be sure to check out the full gallery. Every lovely detail was expertly captured by Pepper Nix.

Why a Mountain Wedding?
Nick and I love to ski. It is something we have been doing since we were very young. Additionally, when we first started dating it was something we did together several times a week. We also love, love, love the mountains, fresh air, and fantastic perspective their majesty brings!

Where did you get the inspiration?
I knew we wanted things that were a bit more sustainable and that could be recycled or used again. Oh, we did use Sari’s as part of our center pieces These were reminiscent of our two month in India together. It is one of our favorite places!
How did you choose to personalize your wedding?
Getting married outside in the snow. The planner was a bit apprehensive, but I stuck to my guns and am glad I did. We also did a whole weekend of event.
I had all my bridesmaids pick their own dresses. I told them blue, above the knee, and no sleeved. They all picked out dresses that were incredibly flattering and somehow it worked out. Additionally they all wore printed black tights. I bought them coats and boots to keep them warm. One of my bridesmaids, Christina, made muffs (instead of flowers) and we all had a fantastic time making crass poses with them.
What was Your Favorite Part of the Reception?
Dancing with all of Nick’s Citadel classmates. We also rented 4 housed in the canyons village where all of our close friends and family stayed. We had several meals together, did a pub crawl down Main Street, went skiing, and had a blast. I loved that our wedding was a whole weekend!
