Burlap & Lace at Denver Botanic Gardens

Evie & David  |  July 28th  |  Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield

From the bride, Evie:
My inspiration was based off of lace and burlap – two of my favorite textiles. My husband and I also have a cowboy boot fetish, so we thought a barn setting was fitting.

Our favors were little burlap bags filled with coffee beans that said “David and Evie, the Perfect Blend. Evue02 Evue03 Evue04 Evue05 Evue06 Evue07 Evue08 Evue09

Our wedding ceremony was aside a red barn beneath twinkling tree lights, in front of a handmade aspen arch decorated with hanging jars and wildflowers. We had handwritten vows and friends and family contributed to the music for the ceremony.

I remember standing at the alter, when this huge rush of wind came billowing down the aisle, then I saw this rather large wall of water headed toward us. The rain held off until after we said “I DO”.

We had pie for desert, rather than cake, which my bridesmaids graciously helped my bake. Evue15

David is a musician and I have always wanted to him to write me a song, but try and try again he never did… until our wedding day!! He surprised me with a song he had written just for ME!! It still makes me cry every time I hear it.

My advice: See your wedding as the beginning of your forever after. Make time to get to know your husband and talk through a lot before the big day arrives; not just focus on all the little details that will make your big day special. After all, your wedding is only one day, but the commitment you make to your husband is the beginning of a relationship that will last a lifetime. If you focus on that, everything else will fall together.
