Florals Took This Little Nell Wedding To A Whole New Level

January 6, 2024 | justine

Linh and Chris decided to tie the knot on the slopes. This adventurous decision was inspired by their shared love for skiing during their early dating days. Aspen, where their first adventure unfolded, was the natural choice. With the help of their vendor team, the enchantment of their Little Nell wedding was taken to new heights with florals that transformed the celebration into something truly exceptional.

The couple instantly fell in love with the idea of a mountaintop ceremony at 11,212 feet, surrounded by the scenic beauty of trees, puffy clouds, snow-capped mountains, a gentle breeze, and the soothing sound of rustling leaves. Walking down the aisle on that mountain was a dream come true for the pair, with the path adorned with flowers leading to an arch that framed the mountains. They switched things up with the reception but kept the enchantment alive with hanging glass baubles, adding a special touch to the elegant tablescape of beautiful, low, lush blooms.

If you’re into elegant mountain celebrations and dreamy floral wonderlands, you definitely don’t want to miss this. Beautifully captured by Laura Murray, the whole story is waiting for you—just keep scrolling!

Bringing Their Little Nell Wedding Vision to Life With the Help of Trusted Vendors

In terms of style, vibe, and design, I wanted something elegant, modern, and romantic. I was drawn to the color pale blue at that time. From there, I worked with our planner, photographer, and floral designer to develop the complete design. They proposed some inspirational designs, and I made the final decision. I put my trust in my team, and they were able to put together a final product that fit our personalities and vision as a couple.

A Majestic Moment: Saying “I Do” at 11,212 Feet

The day’s most memorable part was the wedding ceremony at the top of Aspen Mountain at 11,212 feet above sea level. The view from walking down the aisle on that mountaintop was just spectacular—the backdrop with the trees, the puffy clouds, the snow-capped mountain, the breeze, and the sound of the rustling leaves was so surreal and majestic. I remember my wedding planner reminding me to take in the moment I get down to the end of the aisle, which was super helpful!

Embracing Their Vision with Their Trusted Wedding Team

Our advice: After saying yes to the engagement ring, begin interviewing wedding planners and photographers. Work with the A team, mainly focusing on these top three teams: the planner, the photographer, and the floral designer. It’s crucial to establish chemistry with all of them because they are the ones who bring your vision to life and provide inspiration where needed. Don’t compromise on quality when it comes to people. Second, have a clear opinion on your vision, but be flexible and leverage the team’s expertise and style. The bonus of all collaboration is that they become your friends after your wedding because, in my case, they are such incredible women! Another tip I’d offer is to involve your future spouse in planning, even if they say you can pick everything! And lastly, it’s all about location, location, location.

Elevating Their Little Nell Wedding Through Floral Design and the Wedding Menu

The floral design and reception menu were most important to me. Flower design elevates any space because it provides visual and feeling effects. The quality of food is essential to me. I live to eat and not eat to live. I wanted my wedding guests to remember the dining experience and not just the ceremony.
