Rustic Chic at Lookout Cabin


We had the pleasure of working with Park City locals, Erin and Damon, on their fall wedding at Lookout Cabin. Along with their 80 guests, they were treated to one of the most beautiful fall days all season. This wedding stands out in my mind as truly capturing the rustic chic style of a mountain wedding, with some Park City local flare.

The couple used some great DIY touches like their table numbers that were wood burned onto tree stumps, and then paired them with blue glass mason jars with softer roses and baby’s breath.  In keeping with the rustic theme, both the bride and bridesmaids wore cowboy boots with their dresses. Line dancing and s’mores around the fire pits finished off the evening. The juxtaposition of the rustic mountain touches with the softer more romantic colors and textures really define this trend.

Claire Marika Photography was onsite to capture this spectacular event.














We asked Erin after her wedding what her favorite part was. She told us, “To be honest the entire wedding was my favorite! From the ceremony to the dancing, the venue is so breath taking  everyone had such a good time. If I HAD to pick something I would say my most favorite part was the ride down in the bubble chair. Damon was holding little Daniel who was asleep. It was nice to finally get some time alone with my new husband and talk about the entire night!  The view at night is amazing especially with the full moon. It was a perfect time to decompress.

Chrystal and Patrick– Capturing the Essence of Vintage Rustic at Red Pine

Undeniably, the past two years has seen the incredible rise of the vintage rustic wedding trend. While their may be some (ehem, Huffington Post) that may be ready to see it fade, it seems that the public has spoken– vintage is here to stay a while longer. And, why not? The style lends for the small details and personal touches that can make the event more meaningful to the couple. Chrystal and Patrick’s wedding at Red Pine really does capture the best that this style has to offer. Touches like the shades of blush and champagne bridesmaid dresses, to the bride’s choice of unique shoes and lace dress, to the wishing well guestbook and touches of burlap or family recipe cards are all examples of the great things you can do with this theme.  It turned out gorgeous and a great fit at Red Pine. Photographer, and friend from Arizona, Mike Olbinski, was on site to catch all the details.

We asked Chrystal what her favorite moment was, and she replied, “That’s a tough question because we liked so many things from the entire weekend! Riding in the gondola over the canyon, Pat and my first look down the trail, walking down the bridge to the ceremony, the entrance to dinner when the smell of fajitas filled the room, our first dance and all the amazingly fun dancing that followed (especially when the crazy glasses came out) we really had an epic experience that we will always remember.”

We had an “epic” experience with this couple too!
