Mountain Wedding In Vail, CO (Piney River Ranch)

Kristen Hartel (Bride) Avon, CO
We exchanged vows in September at Piney River Ranch in Vail, CO. The aspen leaves were bright and in full transition, as we celebrated our next adventure. The flowers added the perfect elegant-rustic vibe to our wedding in the mountains. The flowers arrived as scheduled, and my wedding party and close family clipped the flowers and hydrated them in flower food in the garage for a few days. The day before the wedding, each bridesmaid made their own bouquet, a few of the guys made all of the boutonnieres (and loved it), and we made 35-40 centerpieces in small jars and tin bucket vases. We saved some extra flowers for the bridesmaids', flower girls', and bride's hair. No one had any experience arranging ... flowers, and with a few libations, everyone had a blast and the flowers came out better than I could have ever imagined! Show more

We ordered the Monochromatic White Combo Pack with the Classic Wedding Greenery Combo Box to use for all of the flowers for our wedding. I trimmed up and rehydrated the flowers with flower food a few days before we put them together, and they regained their vibrancy. I had my whole wedding party & close family help do all of the centerpieces and bouquets (each bridesmaid made their own bouquet), and a few of the guys did all of the boutonnieres. I was a little nervous making about the arrangements looking ok (nobody had ever done flowers before). The flowers were beautiful, everything looked better than I could have ever imagined, and everyone had a great time doing the flower arrangements!! I would absolutely recommend doing your own flowers, and these packs together gave our mountain wedding the perfect touch of fun and elegance!
