Boulder Bike Wedding

Heather & Jeremy  |  October 18th  |  Boulder, Colorado

From the bride:
We are adventure racers and avid mountain bikers so we wanted a bike theme. We kept our wedding small and spent quality time with each quest.
BethPhoto01We just put a new succulent garden in our landscape and thought it would be great to use succulents instead of the normal flowers.

BethPhoto02The snow was unexpected, but made for a very unique day!

We had a small ceremony.  We wrote our own vows that didn’t leave a dry eye in the area.  We had a dear friend marry us as an acoustic guitar was playing.  It was very natural, very emotional.  Very calm and down to earth.   We are both outdoor people so it was truly about us, who we are.

BethPhoto04Right as the ceremony started, two bald eagles were flying overhead, then a mist covered us, it was breathtaking!

BethPhoto05I loved riding our tandem antique bike in the snow, in my dress. Unforgettable!

BethPhoto06 BethPhoto07 BethPhoto08

I made our guest book, which was a framed image of a tandem bike – with strings up in the sky – people used their thumb/finger print to create the balloon at the end of the string and signed their name by it.

I also made all of the succulent place holders, they were a real little cactus in galvanized pails with cute little signs on them.

Inspired by Telluride

Meghan & Joseph  |  June 16th  |  Telluride, Colorado

From the bride, Meghan:
Joseph took me to Telluride on our first trip together and I fell in love with the town. Telluride brings this feeling of peace and relaxation, a feeling of just being centered, and it is an amazing creation! You have this little storybook town nestled in this canyon of lush green mountains and an amazing waterfall at the end of town.IlluminArts01

I wanted a very natural style wedding to keep with the Telluride theme. I also wanted to make the day very personal. To bring in the natural feel, I included aspen trees and river rock. I chose a brown, cream, and green color palette with yellow accents.

IlluminArts02 IlluminArts03 IlluminArts04 IlluminArts05

We started our ceremony early so that it would end at sunset. The mountain view in Telluride at sunset is breathtaking and that is what we wanted our guests to see!

IlluminArts06 IlluminArts07

My most memorable moment was saying my vows with the amazing mountains in front of us.

IlluminArts08 IlluminArts09 IlluminArts10 IlluminArts11 IlluminArts12 IlluminArts13 IlluminArts14

My advice: Hire a coordinator, enjoy every moment, the good and the bad, because you will look back and love both.
