“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.
Looking back, I would have done a first look and had pictures taken before the ceremony instead of during cocktail hour. It was a bit rushed and I would have liked that time to spend with our guests.
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.
Our favors were SVEDKA Vodka shots in tangerine and raspberry.
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.
