“Looking back, our wedding was a dream. All we wanted was our closest loved ones with us on a vacation with God’s landscape as our decor and we got it. When planning your wedding, remember that there are no rules. Your wedding day should be a direct reflection of you both and your personalities.”

Jillian & Shawn | September 5th | Denver, Colorado
From the bride: Our wedding was very us. The location was us, the music was us, the cake was us. We chose a color palette of deep teal with orange accents (Shawn’s favorite color). Orange socks for the groomsmen, orange toenails for the ladies, orange Calla Lilies, and an orange cake. Our inspiration was the Denver downtown area, cocktail parties, classic looks and décor.
The ceremony was on the roof of the Westin downtown with a beautiful view of the city as well as the mountains in the distance.
The weather started out cloudy, but as we were exchanging vows the sun peaked out of the clouds, almost on cue, and lit the entire wedding party. We did a wine blending ceremony. Our officiant did a wonderful job of verbalizing the significance of the blending of the different wines to symbolize the joining of our lives.
My most memorable moment was our first dance. My advice: Enjoy the ride and don’t get too stressed out. Everything turns out in the end!

Brean & Andrew | June 21, 2015
From the bride: Andrew and I met at a real estate investing seminar. I stared at the back of his head for an hour trying to decide if he had a ring on his finger. When our eyes finally met, the rest was history.
We chose a color palette of hot pink, orange, and gray.
The ceremony was on the lawn of The Manor House, a beautiful 101 year old Mansion overlooking the mountain skyline.
The reception was held in a beautiful clear top tent decorated with Bistro lighting.
Looking back, I wish I would have had more time to spend talking to people…. the day goes by way too fast!
My advice: Enjoy every moment of the planning and realize your wedding day will fly by.

Laura & John | September 6th | Colorado Springs, Colorado
From the bride: Our wedding style is best described as “Rustic Elegant.” I am a down-to-earth, outdoorsy girl, who loves a little rustic mixed in to an elegant and classic focus. It was somewhat surprising to both Jon and I through the wedding planning process how “classic” we have gone with invitations, ceremony, other details. I love moments that capture personality, laughs, and truth behind a person and/or event. I am an artist and art teacher, so I really focused on the creativity and color behind my decor and overall feeling of our special day.

Kathy & Mark | October 18th | Denver, Colorado
From the bride: We were going for a modern take on a supper club – a bit of a ‘rat pack’ vibe.
We didn’t know that the zombie crawl was happening so, we took some spontaneous pics with some zombies!
We ordered pedicabs and the wedding party was driven to several venues for unique pictures. It was a fun way to spend the day.
Our tables were named after old school singers.
The starry lights on the ceiling together with the table lamps, flowers and shimmery votives gave off a beautiful vibe.
Mark serenaded me…I think I laughed, cried and giggled all at the same time.
