Fun in Golden

Michelle & Kyle  |   June 4, 2011  |  Golden, Colorado

From the bride:
We are a very laid back couple, so we wanted a fun, upbeat wedding. We love the outdoors and always wanted an outdoor ceremony, but we did not want to make all of our guests commute to the mountains. We just wanted every detail of the wedding to represent us and our personalities.

I surprised Kyle with a 7-11 Slurpee after our first-look pictures. (10 years ago, as kids, we both went to my cousin’s wedding and sat outside the church drinking Slurpees and discussing every detail of how our wedding day would be… and at the time, Slurpees were included in the plans).My father recently passed away, so both my brothers walked me down aisle and gave me away. We left my father’s seat empty in the front row with a picture of us together at a wedding when I was a child.Kyle is a pilot, so the bridal party was announced to “Highway to the Danger Zone” from Top Gun, complete with dance moves and aviator sunglasses.MEMORABLE MOMENT
During the father-daughter dance, my uncles surprised me by taking turns to dance with me in memory of my father.
