Intimate Mountain Cabin Wedding | Amanda & Chris

Intimate Mountain Cabin Wedding | Amanda & Chris

Amanda and Chris are one of those couples who are just so genuine with everything they say and do, you can’t help but love them the moment you meet. And it seems they felt the same way about each other—from the moment they met, it was like no one else was around. They were completely smitten with each other from the night they met, and spent all night talking. Amanda told me, “I knew he was trouble when he literally swept me off my feet to tell me good night,” which is just about the cutest thing I’ve ever heard. I walked in to the cabin where they and about 12 of their closest friends and family members were all preparing for their intimate mountain cabin wedding ceremony and celebration, and instantly felt right at home.

A handful of chairs sat outside facing a giant tree and a field sprawling out in front of the peak of Mount Adams. Inside, there were people barbecuing, cooking side dishes in the kitchen, and carefully arranging the dessert table. Amanda’s aunt and Chris’s sister made the bouquets and boutonnieres. Every person had a task, and they were all working together to create an intimate but perfect setting for these two to get married in and remember forever. It was beautiful to witness.

Amanda’s dress was an iconic soft pink dress with a lace top and tulle bottom—truly fit for royalty. Amanda told me that she never imagined she’d wear a dress like that for her wedding day, but she felt beautiful in it. And the way it looked in the soft golden light was absolutely stunning. It was meant to be.

When all the nervous preparations were complete, and Amanda walked from the cabin up the aisle toward Chris and the stunning mountain backdrop, I knew we were in for a ceremony full of happy tears. The look of emotion on Chris’s face watching his bride walk toward him said it all: these two are meant for each other, and they are all each other needs.

I love when a couple takes the opportunity to make their wedding their own. You don’t need a big budget to have a memorable wedding day, and a low budget does not mean that you can’t make the day beautiful. My absolute favorite weddings are the ones where all the details are super personal, not necessarily fancy. Most of the centerpiece items for Amanda and Chris’s intimate mountain cabin wedding came from their home and are a part of their everyday life together. The flowers in Amanda’s hair were wildflowers from the surrounding area. Their food, pies, and centerpieces were all homemade by the same loved ones who were there to witness their vows. Every element of the day was DIY and 100% personal, and they all came together to keep with the laid-back cabin theme.

And the setting. That. Setting. You really don’t need much else as far as extravagant décor when you have a gorgeous mountain cabin setting like that. After the ceremony, as their friends and family set up the tables to eat their delicious homemade meal, and the sun began to set, I took Amanda and Chris around the cabin property for one of the best golden hour wedding photo shoots I’ve ever had the pleasure of doing. You’ll just have to scroll to see what I’m really talking about.

I asked Amanda to answer a few quick questions about their day, in her own words, and here they are:

What was your favorite moment of your wedding day?

Our first kiss as husband and wife. But equally comparable, was when we were walking back up towards the house after saying hello to the neighboring cows. The sun was setting, the lights were glimmering in the pale dusk and it looked so gorgeous, I could hardly believe I was so lucky to have this as my wedding day.

What did you envision your wedding being prior to planning?

Once we had looked at all the caterers and venues and realized we wouldn’t be able to invite everyone we wanted, we decided to go small. Really small. We booked an event friendly cabin surrounded by acres of pastures and meadows and invited only our closest family and friends.

Describe your wedding day in your own words.

It was a simple, intimate ceremony surrounded with love by our closest friends and family.

What is one piece of advice that you could give brides-to-be?

Don’t sweat the details. Everything comes together in the end and all that matters is celebrating the love of you and your partner.

 

I couldn’t have said it better myself. I hope this intimate mountain cabin wedding inspires more engaged couples out there to forget the “norms” and not be afraid to plan a wedding day that is perfect for them. )And although these photos were taken at a cabin near the Hood River Valley in Washington, you could find a hidden gem like this anywhere you are. Bring on the Colorado intimate mountain cabin weddings!)
