I love the mountains...big time. If I had to choose between an ocean view or a mountain view, I'm pretty sure I'd pick the mountains (and I might be the only person to choose that way!!!). Today, The Hindsight Bride tells us why she "hearts" the mountains....and points out some drool-worthy mountaintop nuptials!
When Jes first started this blog, she mentioned being sick of mountain weddings being all about pinecones “I realized the huge void in finding mountain/forest/outdoor specific ideas. Especially on a very conservative budget. Or when I did find them, they were almost always pine cone themed.”
I hear ya sister. And while I happen to like pine cones, I like other things too. So here is a tribute to mountain brides who march to the beat of their own drum and show that mountain weddings are not always about pinecones!
The Berkshires from Snippet and Ink
Nothing says mountains to me like mismatched anything. The rugged, make-do tradition of the mountains is best reflected in “found objects.” Little scraps of paper and fabric, mix-matched vases, old books and ephemera, and yes, sticks, and twigs, and the occasional pinecone.

The Rockies from Martha
There is so much I love about this mountain wedding, least of all the chair lift bridal shots. I love, love, love the vintage “top-of-the-world” design on the invitations. Suggesting mountains without being obvious gets a big thumbs up in my book. I also have to point out the intense blue of the sky. It actually looks like that in the high western altitudes ladies; that’s not photoshop!
