A Rolling Stone

The Bride: Marcy Greist
The Groom: Dave Boland
Date: July 23, 2011
Venue: Gorrono Ranch (Telluride, CO )

Dave Boland and Marcy Greist have a habit of collecting stones from all the places they travel. So it was fitting that after two years of globe-trotting together, Dave proposed to Marcy at a hilltop temple in Nara, Japan, by giving her a round stone that he had found during their hike. It was a gesture he borrowed from the Adelie Penguin, who chooses a mate for life by rolling a stone to the feet of his chosen female. Dave’s stone was soon followed by a brushed platinum and gold ring that he had purchased in Japan just days before. When the couple began planning a summer wedding in Telluride, Colorado, they decided to create much of the wedding décor on their own, which led to a series of DIY wedding details that told the story of their many travels together.

Wedding Venue


On their third date, Dave looked at Marcy and said, “Colorado?” They soon left their respective jobs to start a life together in the Centennial State and fell in love with Telluride. The couple found the rustic Gorrono Ranch and its sprawling views of the Wilson Range to be the perfect backdrop for their Colorado wedding.

Dave and Marcy handmade all of their wedding stationery using a Print Gocco machine, a compact Japanese color printer that uses flashbulbs to thermally imprint an image.

Bridal Attire


Marcy paired her Watters trumpet gown with Frye boots and a garter she made out of an old gun holster, both truly fitting accessories given the rustic Rocky Mountain setting.

Flower Girls


Six flower girls donned simple white dresses, cowboy boots, and a set of handmade fairy wings that the couple fashioned out of wire, tulle, and silk.

Reception


The couple named each table after a place they had traveled together and created DIY floral centerpieces comprised of blooms native to that region. Marcy’s bouquet was a combination of flowers from each table, symbolizing their connection and love for all the guests at each table.

Wedding Music


In a unique twist, the couple’s wedding website allowed guests with a place to make song requests before the wedding. They then handed that list over to Aiko Aiko Sound, the Durango-based DJ service they hired for the day.

Wedding Photography


“I have a photography background so I’m incredibly picky,” explains the bride when asked why they chose Aubrey Joy Photography, whose unique images captured the fun, unique, and somewhat quirky personality behind the wedding and its guests.
