One look at this wedding celebration and you will be running to your nearest snow-capped mountains. There are so many couples nowadays that are forgoing wedding traditions and making their own nuptials much more personalized. For Hannah and Kevin, they truly made this Mt. Ashland wedding their own.
This adventure loving couple exchanged their I do’s on top of a mountain surrounded by incredible shades of greenery that had been kissed by the snow. Whether it was a chic white fur coat, bold blue ornate boots, a dressed-up snowmobile ride, or the matching winter hats, this wedding was anything but ordinary.

Making The Mt. Ashland Wedding Ceremony More Personalized
My husband and I wrote letters to each other that we read aloud during our first look. We then recited vows during the ceremony that my brother officiated. It was super special to have my brother there, even after he drove over 14 hours straight from Alaska to make it to the wedding in time.
Wedding Fashion With Faux Fur And Bolo Ties
During the ceremony, I wore a Free People faux fur jacket. The tassels really added a fun flair. I wanted something fun and unique and I loved how timeless it felt. After that, I changed into a gold jumpsuit to dance the night away. The bridal party wore mismatched jewel tones; some patterned, some plain. We wanted our bridal party to wear things they were comfortable in and would wear again in the future. We made all the groomsmen custom bolo ties in our shop. Each one was special to the individual groomsman.
Working with Kami Olavarria
Kami was super detailed and he paid close attention to the timeline and helped me make adjustments so that things would run much smoother—things that I didn’t even think about! Kami gave us such great energy and kept everyone in the mood for family photos and bridal party shots, even in the middle of a snowstorm. She really advocated for Kevin and I and what we wanted during our wedding day and was our biggest fan during the wedding planning process as well.
Wedding Advice From the Bride
Don’t worry too much about traditions, or the finest details. We focused more on creating a vibe than about any one specific detail. Also, invest in the vendors you believe in. Wedding cost adds up fast, but having Kami, our band, and our other solid vendors are truly what made our day as epic as it was! It wouldn’t have been the same, stress-free day without our vendor team.
