You’ve probably seen photos from Lanie and Matt’s gorgeous winter wedding around the interwebs, but I couldn’t help sharing it with you here. The couple lucked out with a beautiful January day in Colorado, full of incredible details from the talented Lisa Vorce (and stunning photos by Aaron Delesie).

Lanie had long sleeves added to her Vera Wang dress, perfect for a snowy winter wedding.

Little welcome bags included a note from the couple, pure vanilla extract, and the recipe for Matt’s father’s pancake recipe.

A candy buffet included chocolates and caramels, which guests could take home in little paper bags. There were also small glass bottles of root beer milk, one of Matt’s favorite treats.

Mindy Rice created uniquely beautiful centerpieces with cotton bolls, pine cones, and evergreens. Candles added a warm and cozy glow.

      Actually, the milk was from a local Kansas City, MO dairy, not from Colorado! Please rectify this error! (I’m from KC and I’m a big Shatto milk fan!)

      This wedding is pure eye-candy most certainly (and how photogenic can one couple be?!), but – coming from the UK – I am more intrigued in this “root beer milk”! I totally L.O.V.E root beer, and drink as much as is humanly possible when I am in the States, but never have I come across root beer milk! Please enlighten me – I’m sure I’d love it!

      The dress is still amazing even if it was altered.Fits the bride and the event perfectly. Would love to know where they got the paper bags for the candy buffet.
