Rockwood Lodge, Old Edwards Inn and Spa’s newest venue and an eight-bedroom stunner atop one of the highest peaks in Highlands, serves as the backdrop for an innovative affair that blends rustic fabrics with a modern aesthetic, chic metallics and bold styling. Embrace the autumn air with dramatic lighting for a mystical celebration your guests will never forget. —CW

About the Food:
Old Edwards Inn Executive Chef Johannes Klapdohr created a menu that showcases rustic mountain ingredients in a modern—and gorgeous—way. Trout and bison serve as the proteins for the meal, while the plating and garnishes continue the wow-factor down to every last detail.

All in the Name:
Designer Ivy Robinson debuts these innovative escort cards, created by jeweler Kristin Hayes. Guests find their names on hand stamped necklaces, each chain also containing a charm: a feather, key, or wing. The charm indicates their table ‘number,’ and another hand stamped piece at the table signifies each guest’s seat. Guests will be thrilled to take these customized baubles with them, too.
