Aspen, CO Nuptials

I've got some serious eye candy for you today. Lauren Jones, a friend and fellow Houstonian, is one of the most stylish women I know.  To this day, her wedding pictures continue to wow me, although I've looked through them multiple times.  I knew you would find them inspiring too, so when I asked if I could share them she graciously agreed.
Lauren and Stanley Jones wed in Aspen, Colorado in August of 2008.  Lauren comes from a talented family.  Her mother, Helen Jancik, made her wedding dress, wedding coat, veil and headpiece, the flower girl's dress, the bridesmaids' earrings and shawls, the reception tablecloths, and the reception chair covers.  Can you believe that?  Helen is an extremely talented seamstress and designer.  

Let's start with a few bridal portraits of Lauren:



Lauren and Stanley began dating when they both lived in New York City, so it was only appropriate that a few bridals were taken while she strolled through Central Park:




Her veil is breathtaking.  The lace detail on the edges complements her long sleeved lace wedding dress that goes beautifully over her silk gown.  

Now let's move on to the Aspen, CO ceremony...








Lauren, with her talented mother, Helen:




Lauren's bridesmaids:


Groomsmen & Ushers:



The reception was held at the Aspen Sundeck.  At the reception sign-in table, various pictures of Lauren & Stanley during their relationship and bridal portraits are displayed in beautiful frames.


Twig lanterns lined the reception hall:



Yellow roses and candles lined the head table:


               Centerpieces consisted of horns, pheasant feathers, oak leaves, and acorns:





Absolutely beautiful.  I love that Lauren kept the overall aesthetic of her wedding natural- lots of wood accents and greens.  It was perfect for the mountain setting.

If you love her taste as much as me, then you'll be delighted to hear she's a Stella & Dot Director & Founding Leader!  I'm a big fan of S&D jewels, and with their new fall line out, I really need to hide my wallet.  Have you seen it? 
Go check out Lauren's site to peruse the collection, and if you live in the Houston area, book a trunk show with her for free jewels!


Happy Thursday!
