From Belleview Weddings & Events... Justin and Kate's history as a couple spanned a decade before being married - they were together and apart for over 10 years until, finally, a recognition that their deep connection had never faded pushed their lives together permanently. Kate was living overseas, in a committed relationship with someone else when Justin, owner of a popular dating app, realized that after years apart from her, he was still in love with Kate. While doing an interview with the New York Times regarding his app Justin realized that he needed to take a leap of faith and reach out to Kate. He flew to London, showed up on her doorstep, and spoke his truth. Let's just say it worked.
Justin and Kate decided to get married in February in Crested Butte, Colorado with the snowy Rocky Mountains as their backdrop. A special family destination for Justin, the town's authenticity and charm appealed to Kate as a perfectly romantic destination. The couple truly showcased all that Crested Butte had to offer- from farm-to-table dinners, to cat skiing on untouched powder, to an intimate ceremony at a quintessential mountain lodge. The stand out gathering of the 3 event-weekend was a gambling-inspired cocktail party set at a mountain yurt, nestled in an evergreen grove on the Crested Butte Nordic trail system. Guests donned nordic skis and skied, in the dark with guides, to a sumptuous cocktail party complete with a gypsy jazz band, 2 poker games, a custom bar menu and heavy passed and stationary appetizers.
Kate and Justin's ceremony and reception took place at the Taylor River Lodge. In front of a roaring fire Kate and Justin said their vows. A beautiful plated dinner followed, served with live bluegrass-infused acoustic music in the background and amidst candlelight. Homemade marshmallow s'mores rounded out the evening. A thoroughly one-of-a-kind weekend of celebration for family and friends was the goal for Kate and Justin; one that was achieved!
