You probably recognize today’s beautiful bride from our 2016 High Country Wedding Guide. Lovely Katie and her now-hubby, Jared, tied the knot at Green Park Inn, and their beautiful high country wedding was featured in the ‘real weddings’ section of our print guide for the year. An expanded feature on their Big Day is on the way, but first, here are Katie’s stunning bridal portraits shot by Waterhouse Studios. Whether posing in front of the stately inn or gazing over the incredible mountaintop view, every one of these shots is pure loveliness!

It was love at first sight for the HCWG offices when we first laid eyes on Christina and Larry’s rainy wedding day at The Mast Farm Inn. Photographed by Revival Photography, the intimate celebration boasts a barn ceremony, garlands of greens and succulents, and a warm and inviting dinner party. From Christina’s simple Ralph Lauren gown to the cross back chairs to the ferns tucked into each guest’s napkin, this wedding is a lesson in laid back intimacy with plenty of thoughtful details. Cheers, Christina and Larry!
