REAL SNOWMASS WEDDING SPOTLIGHT: Caroline and Dave’s Mountain Side Soiree0
Wedding Date: September 2016
Bride and Groom: Caroline Gibson and Dave Heivly
(Wedding submitted by Jane Floyd)
Where did you have your ceremony? Elk Camp Meadows
How did you decide on this location? It had fabulous views of our favorite ski runs.
Where did you have your reception? Elk Camp Restaurant
How did you decide on Elk Camp Restaurant for your reception? Everything is in one place and it is a short gondola ride which made for perfect pictures! The meadow for the ceremony and for dinner, a spacious new contemporary bar was perfect. It was all in one location and had patios and firepits!
What was the mood at your wedding? Such lovely energy surrounded by family and close friends…you could literally feel the love in the air. This was a special love story shared by so many. From stepping down the aisle through fragrant lavender, followed by fine dining, to toasts and dancing the night away. The night ended magically with a spectacular sparkler send off under the starry skies.
What is your best memory? So much love was shared with the couple. One of a kind photos from the very top of Elk Camp.
Caroline Gibson, Do you have any advice for a bride planning a destination wedding? Relax and enjoy every minute of the day…Let your Wedding Planner and Maid of Honor handle the details; and feel like the Princess that you are.
Do you have any additional thoughts or photos you would like to share with us?
This is a hallmark story if ever there was one. Their relationship started as being best ski buddies (keeping up with the guys skiing the steeps) to homemade chicken soup left on the doorstep during the flu season. Their ‘love’ was so obvious to anyone and everyone in this small town.
