Rustic Mountain Wedding at the Dunton Hot Springs in Colorado

August 12, 2014 | christine

Magnificently photographed by Chowen Photography, this rustic mountain wedding at the Dunton Hot Springs is both charming and luxurious. From the bride’s original take on her wedding day look to the eclectic decor, everything about Brenna and Andrew’s wedding feels like a breath of fresh mountain air.

The Couple: Brenna and Andrew

The Wedding: Dunton Hot Springs, Dolores, Colorado

The Inspiration: I would describe the inspiration as “rough luxe”. I wanted it to be rustic and warm, very nostalgic and rural without being too western or campy. I love the juxtaposition of weather materials like worn wood, weathered stone, pitted antler and bone with soft linen, burnished gold, and polished saddle leather. I love texture and nuance, and we wanted our wedding to be very lush and very environmental.

  1. What a beautiful venue! Love her gown choice and the romantic lighting!

  2. It was an honor to work with Brenna and Andrew to bring their gorgeous vision to life. This will remain one of my favorite weddings of all time.

  3. Brenna & Andrew were so wonderful to work with. Their invitations came out amazing – and I am honored to have been a part of their certainly “rough luxe” wedding celebration!

  4. I like the guys’ suits. It looks sharp. The bride’s dress is nice as well, it’s pretty. And Colorado is a great city.

  5. The first photography looks exceptional and better capturing .
