wedding weekend

Well, we’ve been back to reality for a week now and I am not a fan! haha. Wedding weekend/post wedding week completely flew by! But, I finally had a little time to sit and write a little post.

Let’s back up to the couple of days before the wedding. A lot of our family and friends flew to Durango on the Thursday before, so that meant manicures and a delicious dinner at a brewery. Plus a stay in an epic historic hotel.

Friday morning it was off to our wedding location. I am totally selfish and protective over it now, so I won’t give out the name, but if you figure it out on your own, props to you – it’s pretty remote!duntonlishmom

We started by taking over the dance hall and putting together gift bags. My dad got to work setting up the sign I asked him to make, which turned out to be so awesome. It had the locations that all of our guests had traveled from.gift bags bag2 sign

As guests arrived and got settled in their cabins, we delivered the gift bags and pretty soon it was time for lunch! Like all the food at this place, it was delicious!

We were suppose to walk down to the chapel for rehearsal, but opted for a soak in the hot springs instead and pushed the rehearsal til Saturday morn. joerobe

Dinner was with everyone in the saloon and so much fun. Again, the food was delicious!!

My wedding planner was hard at work putting together decor and bouquets – she is the best! If you live in CO or MT and are looking for someone, I highly recommend Kara (click HERE for her website).

The morning of the wedding, Joe and I went for a short run and then did the rehearsal.

Then my mom and I hopped on some snow bikes for a bit. Our guests went out to enjoy all of the activities our venue had to offer, hiking, snow shoeing, dog sledding etc..Some just opted for a soak in the hot springs!hs

Before I knew it, it was time to start getting ready. Hair and make-up done and into the dress.

Then – it was the walk to my groom. Our friend Nick conducted the ceremony and he did it perfectly!

Then it was time for dinner, cake/pie and dancing! Our band, Grass It Up was awesome and we definitely partied the night away!

The next morning was breakfast and sad goodbyes to all of our guests. Some of us hung around to ice climb a frozen waterfall…I think I found a new hobby!

After that, it was off to Telluride for 5 days of snowboarding and mini-mooning!
