TIHSREED LODGE WEDDING, TIHSREED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER, FLORISSANT COLORADO WEDDING PLANNER
Rustic Mountain Wedding Planning and Photography
Haley and Garett came from Kansas to Florissant, Colorado to celebrate their destination wedding weekend. Tihsreed Lodge wedding venue was the perfect rustic mountain location to host their closest family and friends. They are a super laid back and outdoorsy couple and wanted their wedding to reflect that for their guests. We were honored to both coordinate and capture their special day.
Intimate Wedding with Family and Friends
The couple chose to incorporate little details into their day that came from family. Their handmade wooden ring box had a deer etched into the top. The shawls the bride and bridesmaid wore, to keep out the chilly mountain air, were handmade by Haley’s mother. The custom made guest favors were coasters from slabs of wood, etched with mountains and their initials. Bringing in special items like this makes everything so much more meaningful. We loved helping them fit these details into their day!
THE CEREMONY: A TIPI TENT AND RUSTIC CHARM
Haley and Garett’s wedding ceremony was held under a unique tipi (teepee/tepee) style tent from Under the Sky event rentals. This is not your average white wedding tents. Made with wood poles, carpeted flooring and draped with market lights, this sturdy rustic tipi was the perfect way to keep their guests warm while incorporating the mountain views and ever changing spring weather conditions.
The tent was later converted to reception space for dining, followed by live music, a surprise from the bride and dancing.
THE RECEPTION: AN EXTRA SPECIAL SERENADE
Haley and Garett had a couple of special surprises during their wedding reception. They rode into the Tihsreed Lodge on horses… well, children’s stick horses to be exact but horses nonetheless. Haley then surprised her groom with a special serenade on the ukulele and you can see from the look on Garett’s face that he was smitten! The Father Daughter dance was also a sight to be seen with choreographed moves that got the party started. To say these things were awesome would be an understatement especially the ukulele serenade – way to go Haley!
