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!
