This couple packed up for a worthy getaway with friends & family for their wedding at the Sundance Resort. Kate & Rob are both New Yorkers & they both also love being in the mountains. They tried their best to incorporate some parts of NYC into their wedding theme. One of their DIY projects was the place cards they created which were individually cut white tiles that had the proportions of NYC subway tiles. Each person was seated at a table named after a subway stop. Such a creative DIY craft, isn’t it? They wanted their special day to have a rustic & comfortable vibe to it but would still have that elegant & sophisticated touch of true New Yorkers.
What inspired your wedding decor? Why did you choose the things that you did?
We wanted the vibe to be rustic and comfortable, but elegant and sophisticated at the same time. Fitting for a couple living in NYC but that loves the mountains!
Do you have advice for couples still in the planning process?
Ask your first and most trusted vendors for suggestions on who else to hire. They know who’s who better and way faster than you’ll be able to tell in hours of surfing the internet.
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We went on an amazing 9-day safari in Botswana, followed by a week at the beach in northern Mozambique.
How many guests were invited in your wedding and what was the final guest count?
We invited 120 people and ended up with 75.
Was it difficult to narrow down your guest list?
Not really, we both have relatively small families and we knew travel wouldn’t be possible for everyone who we invited, so it kept our guest count nice and intimate.
What songs did you use during the ceremony?
“In My Life” and “All You Need Is Love” by the Beatles. The first dance was “Stay With You” by John Legend.
What inspired the wedding day outfits?
We went into a Hugo Boss men’s store together and loved the striking color scheme of the charcoal gray men’s suits and some simple magenta potted orchids. It was classy and we thought it brought an element of urban chic to contrast the rustic setting at Sundance.
What was your favorite part of the day?
I was not anticipating how much I’d love the ceremony. I was nervous about having all eyes on me, and the anxious wait to go down the aisle was actually the worst part of my day! But once I saw all the smiling, supportive, and familiar faces, it was incredibly comforting and I really enjoyed it.
Was there any Do it Yourself (DIY) projects? If so, can you describe them in detail?
We created the place cards using individually cut white tiles that had the proportions of NYC subway tiles. Each person was seated at a table named after a subway stop.
