After drooling over San Sophia Overlook for years, Dee got the day of her dreams when she married Joe at their intimate Telluride wedding. With the help of planner Elevation Weddings and Events, the couple hosted a romantic ceremony with sweeping mountain views and minimal decor. They moved the party inside for a cozy reception featuring greenery and floral arrangements from Dahlia Floral Design and four different wedding cakes from Fig and Bloom Cakes. Now that’s our favorite kind of party!
Not only did photographers Jason and Daris capture the elegant day beautifully, but we also love what they had to say about the couple.
Jason and Daris Photocinema Love This Couple
At first impression, you might think Dee and Joe are an unlikely pair, but when you get to know them, you find they are a perfect match. Dee is such a lively person who easily connects with all kinds of people. Joe is super observant, insightful, and will catch you off guard with a well-timed joke. They are both incredibly kind, caring, and empathetic people. Anyone can tell right away that they are meant for each other.
Their wedding day was one for the books! Anticipation and excitement were in the air, especially as we drove off-road up to the top of the mountain with Dee egging us on while we bounced off the switchbacks! The ceremony at the top of San Sophia Overlook was perfect in every way, as they said their vows above Telluride.

The Pronovias Gown
I always knew I wanted a lace dress. My dream designer was Pronovias but I didn’t want to pay an outrageous amount for a dress. Never in a million years did I think I would find my exact dress during a random sample sale with my mother-in-law. I went to Emma & Grace after work and tried on three dresses–not knowing my third option was a Pronovias dress. The first one was a hard no, and the second one could have easily been my wedding gown. Then, I tried on the last one and the rest is history. It was the perfect fit, design, and style. When I saw the label and price I couldn’t believe it. I’d found my dress.
Intimate Telluride Wedding Vibes
I wanted an intimate feel with a touch of class. Generally, I prefer simplicity versus trendy. As for the design, I relied heavily on the vendors for their opinions. I trusted my wedding planner, florist, and event coordinator to finalize my dream wedding. I’ve been in love with San Sophia Overlook since 2015 when I saw it on Instagram. I’m a huge fan of mountain top weddings. And, our first date was a 14er, so this was full circle for us.
A Wedding Surprise For The Bride
I had no idea where San Sophia was located. We paid our deposit without ever seeing the location. We were pleasantly surprised to find out Telluride was six hours from Denver. Given that I was a new transplant, I had no idea and thought it was only a short two hours away. However, I wouldn’t change a thing. The scenic drive was worth it.
Congratulations again to Dee and Joe on their intimate Telluride wedding! We’re so glad that Jason and Daris Photocinema shared their special day with us.

All things pink? Sign us up! Marion and Mike’s pink boho Crested Butte wedding at Cement Creek Ranch was a fairytale dream come to life, and we’re dazzled by every second of it.
With the help of expert planner and Junebug member Lucky Penny Events and Rentals, the rustic outdoor space was decorated with pink ombre custom dyed cheesecloth, lush florals from Dahlia Floral Design, fairy lights, and custom neon signs. Marion’s nude floral Rue de Seine gown paired perfectly with the pink decor and the vibrant fields of yellow and purple flowers that served as a backdrop for the couple’s post-ceremony photos captured by Geoff Duncan Photography. Oh, and they had seven different cakes from Fig and Bloom Cakes–proving they definitely know the way to our hearts.

The Wedding Look and Rue De Seine Gown
Creating my wedding look was such a fun collaboration between Natalie and me. Once I showed her my dress, we started bouncing back and forth with the whole style look for my big day. Natalie gave me the most sultry make vibes with an effortless half braid. I knew I wanted a Rue de Sein dress. When I found out Rue de Seine founder and designer Michele Corty was coming to A and Be in Denver with the new collection, I freaked out. The night before my appointment, the new collection dropped online, and I knew the Vita Gown was it. It was the perfect dress to invoke that Colorado bohemian vibe I was looking for.
Why the Cement Creek Ranch
Ciera showed us a lot of places around Crested Butte. Cement Creek Ranch was the first place we saw, and something just stayed with us. We love that is secluded in its own valley with the most amazing views of the Cement Creek and the surrounding mountains.
Pink Boho Wedding Day Vibes
The vibe at our wedding was unreal. It was an explosion of this fluffy pink bohemian vibe meets rustic Colorado River ranch. We wanted to show our guests from all over the world our favorite place–Crested Butte—why we love it so much. We wanted them to leave with the feeling that they just experienced all that Colorado has to offer.

We absolutely love weddings when the bride is a wedding planner. Because they are so comfortable planning others’ weddings, they always knock it out of the park for their own. Kayla and Scott’s super colorful colorado wedding at Lyons Farmette River Bend did just that! Focused on throwing a warm and inviting affair for their friends and family, the couple opted for a relaxed vibe with good food, good drinks, and good music.
Because the venue was set along the beautiful St. Vrain river, the pair chose to keep decor simple–with an over-the-top bridal bouquet from Plume and Furrow, a large white tent lit with twinkle lights, lounge areas galore, and a DIY vase seating chart. And, of course, the bride’s bold lace Rue de Seine gown contrasted perfectly with the beautiful cliffs.
We’re so thankful that Houseman Studios was able to capture the colorful lovefest, so if you’re searching for some outdoor boho inspo, look no further.

Why The River Bend
We chose River Bend for the Colorado mountain feel without the drive or elevation. The St. Vrain river and cliffs that accompany it are the perfect backdrop for any style. The venue itself provides so much in terms of getting ready spaces, tent, dance floor, the bar under a tall pine tree, and the bistro lights all over that light up the venue like fireflies. It feels special, magical, and off the beaten path.
Personalizing The Ceremony
We did three things to personalize our ceremony. We wrote and said our own vows, which was extremely important to us. My husband’s sister read an excerpt from the book, “The Amber Spyglass” by Phillip Pullman for us. We also had our best man and maid of honor read from the children’s book, “I Like You” by Sandol Stoddard Warburg. Both of those books were meaningful to us, and we have some great memories with them.
A Silent Disco Reception
Dancing was a great part of the day. We chose a venue that was acoustic only, so we had a silent disco. Our guests were hesitant at first, and then once they put on the headphones, they understood and had so much fun! Our dance floor was packed all night. Even my grandparents kept their headphones on and danced for hours.
