Stacy and Jason's summer wedding was held in the tiny town of Lake City, Colorado, where the bride's parents have a summer residence. The couple chose a traditional wedding ceremony venue, the Community Presbyterian Church, and then took it outside for the tented wedding reception celebration! Near the reception tent, a gorgeous chandelier hung from a tree. This luxe detail served as a prop for the photo booth, and as inspiration for the overall style of Stacy and Jason's wedding. The image of the chandelier was echoed in their wedding invitations and ceremony programs. A lot of the standout details were DIY, thanks to the bride's crafty mother. She sewed navy blue and white table runners and accents for the cocktail hour, and baskets to hold toiletries in the bathroom. The navy and white table linens were offset by sunflower yellow napkins and yellow and white chinese lanterns. In lieu of escort cards, the bride had every guest's name written on a trio of antique window frames, which were hanging in the entrance of the venue when the guests arrived. Also in baskets at the entrance were blue, yellow and white pashminas, as well as matching flip flops to dance in later. Towards the end of the evening, as a surprise to her new husband, the bride set out milk and cookies for a late night snack, one of his favorite things to eat.
