On Thursday before our wedding, my parents hosted a Welcome Party for all the guest who were in town. Since Crested Butte is a solid four hours from Denver most guests arrived on Thursday so it was a great way to greet everyone as they got into town.

I could watch this video over and over again! I knew when I picked our venue we were going to have epic views and I wanted it all captured on film and especially with a drone. We worked with Elevate The Media and I could not be happier with the way the edit and drone images turned out.
The The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch is perfect. And I am sure this isn’t the first time you have heard that. An almost eight-year Colorado dream came true when we visited The Ritz Bachelor Gulch this summer!
Let’s go back in time… When I came out to interview back in 2012 the girl I met with went on and on about sipping champagne at Bachelor Gulch after a day of skiing. Dreamy right?
Clay and I are working our way through this little book called Do One Thing Everday Together we open to a new page read the question and answer. Last week one of the questions was about the traditions we share. One that immediately popped in our head was our annual trip to this ranch outside Salida. We discovered the magical little spot on Airbnb a few years back for my birthday and have returned every year since with 20 or so friends in tow. I can’t wait to get back down there and spend all day on the river!
P.S. This is my power jumpsuit – Total investment piece but I have been rocking in for 5 years and love it

True Life: I am a fashion copy cat.
I was walking out of my building and passed a girl rocking basically this exact outfit. I thought “omg she looks so cute I love those pants – I bet those are so comfortable, cause its 90+ degrees out!!” And then I thought, “I’m pretty sure I saw some just like that at Evereve, and that’s what I am going to get tonight” It all came together when I pulled these super comfortable olive green joggers out to try and on my Evereve stylist paired it with this perfect Sanctuary Tank top. Voila! I’m adorable!
When most people think of an Austin Bachelorette they think hitting 6th Street, South Congress and Rainey, bar hopping and eating all the tacos they can handle. I had done big party bachelorettes and they were all so so fun but if I was going to have my very best friends all in one place together I wanted us to just be together. I didn’t want us splitting up into ubers, sitting at long tables or even having to get hit on by randos at a bar and dance to top 40 when Id rather be home jamming to phish, Taylor swift and favorite high school and college jams.
We got married!!! Our week in Crested Butte with friends and family was absolutely perfect start to finish. I can’t wait to share all the photos but here are a few we have gotten back so far our photographer’s Lizzie and Marco were AMAZING!!
I chopped my hair off! Around the same time we got engaged I was super over my long hair but I knew I wanted it long for the wedding so on Saturday I went to Mathew Morris and chopped it all off! I used to grow and chop my hair but its been about 8 years since I have had it short… and I freaking love it. I feel so edgy and sophisticated haha! P.S. I love’d my stylist Leah Remacle!
