Evergreen Lake House Wedding | Evergreen
Wedding Plan B Wasn’t A 14er But Still Beautiful
Wedding Day Details:
We love it when a couple tells us they are not that traditional, untraditional, or just focus on enjoying their day rather than worrying about little things. Rey and Jenny love 14ers and had planned to get married on the summit of Mt. Evans. Unfortunately, due to long overdue needed road construction the colorado mountain was closed above Echo Lake. Last year cycling up the road things were rough and eroding so we figure it helps keep guests from taking a detour down a cliff. What we wonder is how fast Jenny would have driven up? We started at the Alpine Way Chalet in Evergreen for some getting ready photos, went to Echolake for a first look, couple photos, and some family stuff. The ceremony was at the Evergreen Lake House out on the patio overlooking the lake.
The officiant was a friend who must be a stand up comedian on the weekends. There were tears and much laughter. The story was told in the ceremony of the 10 year progression of their relationship. Comically in the ceremony and toasts people noted that initially they thought the groom wasn’t into women. We never got that impression and in fact found he was more into his bride than a number of grooms we have seen. Some of the unique things at the wedding were guest tables named with 14ers they climbed. I believe they have done 22 together. They had a slice of a tree for the guests to sign, mini wood stump placards, and woven bracelets to identity wedding guests for dinner. There was a Verde food truck – hello amazing Mexican food! We LOVE the idea of doing the food truck for catering. It was refreshing to something less traditional, have awesome food, and a simple setup.
Evergreen Lake House Review:
You might think of the Evergreen Lake House as the place you ice-skate in the winter. If you are used to the summer you are thinking of it likely as the place you paddle board, kayak, or go float around on the water on a date. We have been there for both and it is a beautiful mountain venue any time of year. It is ideal for a smaller sized wedding ceremony but can certainly host medium to large wedding receptions. The max guests they take are 200. The deck is great for cocktail hour, cooling off between dances, and capturing the night sky. Has a rustic mountain log cabin look with the romantic night wedding feel.
