Notes from the wedding planner, L Elizabeth Events {LISTmember}:

Ed and Katie were scheduled to get married at Sapphire Point in Breckenridge but a large rain storm hung over the point during their ceremony time so we decided to regroup. I knew of a few spots on the way to Montezuma so I quickly scouted a spot and found a gorgeous sand bar next to the Snake River. The sun was shinning. It was perfect! We assisted the guests down to the location and the ceremony begin under the smooth sounds of guitar and sax.

We decided to do a food and wine pairing for their intimate reception with the Wolf Rock chef onsite preparing the dishes and explaining each dish as they were served. I loved the color palette of champagne and peach with a pop of orange. The pairing was complemented with a 3-piece band and the sounds of Russian and English as each guest toasted the bride and groom in their native language and then it was translated by another guest.

Ed and Katie are of Russian decent and first generation in the Americas. During the ceremony, the officiant asked and recited everything in English and Ed and Katie responded in Russian. It was so beautiful to see and hear the blending of languages and cultures. In Russia, they don’t have the tradition that the bride is walked down the aisle by her father but that the groom walks her to the altar. They incorporated some traditions from Russia and some from the Americas.
