Mountain Weddings

I've just been so inspired by outdoor weddings lately. Check out my posts about backyard weddings and beach weddings, both great outdoor locations. But today, we are on a scenic journey to the mountains! There's just something about warm pies that match so well with a rustic mountain wedding, maybe it's the vintage feel to it. It's a unique dessert that isn't usually serve at weddings. If you are into something even more unique and less traditional, treat your guests to our whoopie pie favor mix - a popular wedding trend taking over cupcakes!
The mountains are just perfect backdrops for your wedding pictures. The best part is how the overall color scheme changes in the different seasons: the blooming flowers in the spring, green for the summer, orange and brown for the fall and white in winter. Just choose a color scheme according to your wedding date. Mountains are actually popular in the winter for destination weddings. Adventurous couples who love winter sports such as skiing, and make their wedding a vacation as well.
But if the cold is not for you, you could always stick to the classic rustic theme in the fall that is equally enchanting. Wooden tables and benches, accompanied with fine china is a simple way to host the wedding dinner. Color it up with contrasting colors such as orange or yellow napkins and flowers.
However, with jaw-dropping scenery overlooking the mountains and valleys, your wedding should not need an overwhelming theme, or even much decoration. Just set a few wooden chairs for the ceremony and sit back to enjoy the view. Let breathtaking nature form the perfect venue!
