This rustic winter wedding in Colorado is one for the books. Maggie Bride, Anna, chose our Ascher wedding dress by Maggie Sottero for her special day with a custom-made lace bolero jacket to match.
“I knew I wanted something timeless and romantic. The Maggie Sottero Ascher was the first dress I tried on and after I tried it on, I had no desire to try on any other dresses. I also didn’t want to take it off! It fit perfectly and hugged my curves in all the right places. I felt beautiful, sexy, and timeless in it. “
Neutral colors with hints of gold formed the color palette for this wedding, which bring out the colors in Anna’s wedding dress. The dramatic decor featured plenty of candles, antlers and eucalyptus, which is in season year-round. There was even snowfall to watch from the large windows in the reception area. Anna’s rustic winter wedding in Colorado perfectly incorporates the elements of the season, and we’re loving it. Congratulations Anna and Eric!
Which Maggie Sottero gown did you wear? I wore the Ascher in Ivory over pearl rose with a custom lace bolero out of the Ascher lace.
What was your favorite part of the dress? My favorite part of the dress was the custom lace bolero I had designed from the Ascher lace. I wanted something completely unique to me. Adding a lace bolero made my dress a one of a kind and perfect for a winter wedding.
What was your favorite wedding day moment? My favorite moment was our first look with my handsome groom. He hadn’t seen the dress but had heard me rave about it for months, so I loved his reaction to the dress and seeing me in it. It was a special moment that I will never forget.
What advice do you have for future brides? Be open minded and rely on your bridal consultant. My bridal consultant helped point me in the right direction and knew the dresses that worked best for my figure. Ultimately, I selected a dress that I may have never tried on without her direction. Thanks Ashley!
How did you and your now husband meet? My husband, Eric, and I met in Nashville, Tenn. at a dueling piano bar. He asked me to dance on the fourth of July back in 2009 and the rest is history. As a nod to how we met, we had dueling piano players for our wedding entertainment.
How did he propose? It was an overcast morning when Eric woke me up early to do some work on his house. He was letting me help remodel his house to make it look like less like a bachelor pad. We were painting one of the bedrooms and he asked me to go get a paint brush out of a toolbox in the other bedroom. I opened the box and there was the ring along with a note, and of course he got down on one knee. It was totally unexpected which made it perfect. It’s hard to surprise me.
Describe your wedding in one word. Romantic
Did your wedding have a theme? Romantic, rustic winter wonderland
How did you decide what you wanted your wedding to look like? I knew I wanted a winter wedding. I also knew that we wanted a destination wedding and wanted our wedding to be intimate and something that our guests would never forget. My vision for the day was a rustic and romantic space with timeless accents. My colors were neutrals with hints of gold, which looked perfect with my dress. I wanted our wedding guests to feel warm and welcome. I worked with my amazing florists to use romantic elements like candles and lots of greenery. The space also had floor to ceiling windows allowing our guests to see the snowfall and aspen trees outside during the ceremony and reception.
