DIY Family Cabin Wedding in the Mountains
This adorable little mountain cabin wedding in Colorado will give you all the DIY ideas for your day! Amber is the sister of one of my brides from back in 2017. She reached out to me pre-pandemic and was planning a wedding at the AA Barn in Grand Lake, Colorado. Unfortunately, covid changed everything and Amber & Mike had to make a decision. They chose completely pivoting to her father’s cabin just outside of Tabernash.
It was a hot, mid-summer day just up the hill from the town of Tabernash, Colorado. Amber’s family’s mountain cabin was up a dirt road a ways from town. I pulled up to the most adorable, old cabin with a matching shed and an white a-frame workshop out back. It had all the rustic charm that you could ask for.
Near the little shed they had set up chairs to face a beautiful hillside filled with Pine trees. The kids were all set to have fun with a cool tic tac toe made out of a tree slice and rocks and plenty of space to run & explore. The Jack Daniels bottles that held their simple but beautiful array of sunflowers, baby’s breath, and red roses added the perfect pop of fun color. They had a custom Jack Daniels label burnt into a wood block for folks to sign as their guest book. And they took bets from the guests on is they would smash cake in the face or not!
Mountain Cabin Rentals
Colorado mountain cabin weddings are becoming ever popular as people start to enjoy the smaller micro-wedding. People have been known to use their airbnb or vrbo rental as a place for a small ceremony. If you do this just be sure to check with the host to make sure the event you wish to have is allowed. A lot of places have rules against events of any size. But some hosts are flexible!
