Peach Wedding In Colorado Wine Country

gray and peach wedding

Amongst the warmth and beauty of late summer, Dale and Tim said “I do” in Colorado Wine Country, Grand Junction. A peach color palette was perfect for the season. Gorgeous florals from 3 Leaf Floral, a lovely reception area at Canyon View Vineyard, and a lot of DIY work from the bride, ensured that the day was a success from start to finish.

Dale is a graphic designer who designed all of the beautiful printed materials and lettering for signage for the wedding. Tim is a pastor at the church where they were married. He is a singer/songwriter, and wrote and played a special song for Dale at the ceremony.

From the Bride:
I went to art school, so I have more power-tool knowledge than your average bride! I built all of the wooden boxes for the tables out of fence posts, painted gold stripes on ivory burlap for table runners, strung silk flowers on quilting thread for the floral curtain, etc.

Other than that, I think the only thing I wish I would have done differently is to have some more knowledge on how the actual day should have gone down. I.E. who is going to clean up, etc? I had all of the creative vision to see what the day would look like, just not the know-how to see it run smoothly. I’m sure that is why most people hire a wedding planner… whoops!

Read on to see how much this peach wedding in Colorado wine country cost. Please note that costs change as the years go by, and prices are subject to change. This is just one couple’s breakdown to give you a rough estimate on how much a wedding like this may cost you.

From the Bride:

I think you'll be surprised at what I ended up spending on my wedding... As a graphic designer I was able to trade my skills for goods & services for my wedding.

Photography- $3,000
Dress & Alterations- $2,000
Venue- free (my husband works at the beautiful church we got married in)
Flowers- $1,500
Decor- $500
Food- $350 (We purchased everything from a local grocery store and had willing friends & family ready to prep and man the grills. This gave us a very affordable way to feed our guests a delicious meal without paying for a caterer)
Photobooth- $500
Tablecloths, plates, napkins- $200
Cupcakes & small cake to cut- $100 (We had a talented friend who hooked us up :)

I was pleased with our end total. I wanted to have a beautiful wedding, but didn't want to pay the price that the wedding industry often demands. I found creative ways to include what I wanted and not break the bank.

    VERY beautiful wedding! And I am SO impressed with how much you spent.. or didn’t spend!! I am in the process of planning my own wedding and trying to figure out where I can cut costs and such. How many guests did you have at your reception?

    Such a lovely wedding and the gorgeous florals and Dale’s DIY details were all so fun to photograph! [I would note that to save a little $ Dale and Tim chose to forego my assistant. She would have photographed the reception details at sunset before guests arrived while we were photographing portraits after the ceremony in a different location.]

  10. What a lovely wedding! A yellow themed wedding, such a nice colour, reminds us of light and sun! Have you ever considered getting married abroad? Maybe in Portugal? Where there is always sun and sea?
