How to Have a Classy Mountain Wedding


Holly + Ryan brought style and loads of joy to Breckenridge for their gorgeous October wedding day at a local Airbnb.


intimate October wedding in Breckenridge

What do you think of when you think of a wedding in Colorado? Let me guess – mountains, duh. But, maybe you also think that a mountain wedding has to be adventurous or maybe a little rustic. If that’s not your vibe – or maybe ya huff and puff just lugging the laundry up the stairs in this altitude (it’s me), you’re totally in luck. Mountain weddings can be chock-full of serious style, too. We’re here to show ya how to have a classy mountain wedding in Breckenridge.

Holly + Ryan and their friends + family were dressed to the nines for their big day in Breckenridge, CO last fall. Black tuxes, a gorgeous cathedral veil & fitted satin gown. It. Was. Fancy. And we loved every single second of it.

Nearing the end of a wild 15 weeks straight of multiple weddings every week, these two filled up our emptying cups and literally just made us wanna dance. It was such a great day.

I dare you not to smile watching this gorgeous Colorado wedding video…

I’m certain their happy wedding film speaks for itself, but if you’re still in need of some ideas how to have a classy mountain wedding, here ya go.

  • Wear the tux!
  • If you’re hiking for your day, be mindful of footwear (wear boots or tennis shoes for the hike & pack along your heels to switch into once ya get there!), but if not, bust out those Jimmy Choos if you so choose.
  • Cathedral length veils are never not a good idea and they immediately dress the day up.
  • Updos are both classy AND practical if it’s a breezy day.
  • Pearls. Or Gramma’s favorite diamonds. Just because you’re in the mountains doesn’t mean you can’t look glam!

Give a look for more ideas. There are many favorites in their gallery!
