After getting engaged in nearby Beaver Creek, Abby & Connor knew they wanted to share their love of the mountains with their wedding guests. The decided on a destination wedding in Vail; which was the perfect balance of beautiful mountain views and elegant style!

For their wedding invitation suite we wanted to incorporate these mountains as well as components of organic, draping greenery to mimic their reception decor plans. We landed on soft watercolor painting of both of these elements, paired with a mix of traditional fonts for an organic and elegant result. To further entice guests with their mountain destination, we also painted a lovely map of Vail, highlighting their wedding weekend venues. Their themed Welcome Dinner livened up the suite with a cute cowboy hat and boots painting.
When Abby & Connor’s guests arrived in Vail, they were greeted with an adorable Welcome Bag – completed by my absolute favorite piece, this welcome booklet featuring a hand painted watercolor map of all their favorite places in Vail! I love painting wedding maps in general, but welcome bag maps are so fun; knowing that I’m helping share the Bride & Groom’s favorite places with all their guests!
We carried this soft style and design elements into their wedding day with ceremony programs and gold-framed acrylic welcome signs. Another favorite of mine was their escort card display. Ivory cards with gold calligraphy were delicately pinned to a framed moss backing to help guests find their table. The table numbers carried this gold on ivory calligraphy into the reception space, in delicate gold-rimmed frames (available to rent!).
All of these carefully crafted details came together seamlessly for a wedding that was timeless, elegant, and embraced the organic beauty of the mountains. Congratulations again, Abby & Connor!
