A Mountain Ceremony in Genesee Park

From the bride, Liz: We have always enjoyed the outdoor spaces that we get to explore here in Colorado. So, when it came time to pick a spot for our ceremony, it was fitting to pick a mountain setting with a backdrop of the continental divide! Our location was about 30 minutes, west of our home in Denver, in the foothills, at Genesee Park. The edge of the park provided the perfect setting for our small group and had all the features we had hoped to find when we first started looking. The majority of our guests were from out-of-state.

PERSONAL TOUCHES
Josh drove his 1966 GMC truck and I hand painted the Just Married banner. It was really special to use my grandmother’s jewelry instead of purchasing something new.

THE CEREMONY
The weather was spot on, the guests were happy, a deer crossed my path as I walked toward Josh. My husband-to-be fumbled the line in the vows about listening, and no joke, an eagle screeched as the officiant read the ceremony! My favorite part was getting to hold each others hand and look each other in the eye while we recited vows.

Before we entered the reception, the neighborhood ice cream shop began playing music and we had a spontaneous first dance in front 50+ strangers.

THE CAKE
Our cake was left in the walk-in cooler a little too long, so Josh and I had to cut through a very cold cake with a very warm knife which ended up being very entertaining for us.

An Intimate Destination Wedding in Winter Park

Aliesha and John love visiting Colorado so much that they decided to get married in Colorado.  They planned a small, intimate wedding that also served as a mini-vacation for their guests.  The  ceremony took place at 10,700 feet overlooking the Continental Divide followed by a mountaintop reception at the The Lodge at Sunspot.  Bella Calla designed all the pretty florals and decor while Dylan Burr perfectly photographed the celebration.An Intimate Destination Wedding in Winter Park An Intimate Destination Wedding in Winter Park An Intimate Destination Wedding in Winter Park An Intimate Destination Wedding in Winter Park An Intimate Destination Wedding in Winter Park An Intimate Destination Wedding in Winter Park An Intimate Destination Wedding in Winter Park An Intimate Destination Wedding in Winter Park An Intimate Destination Wedding in Winter Park An Intimate Destination Wedding in Winter Park An Intimate Destination Wedding in Winter Park An Intimate Destination Wedding in Winter Park An Intimate Destination Wedding in Winter Park

A Romantic Wedding in Littleton

From the bride, Morgan: Our ceremony took place against the gorgeous backdrop of downtown Denver seen through the foothills and surrounded by the faces of our biggest fans and those we love most deeply. We wrote our own ceremony and vows, which definitely set the stage of this day as our very own.

We also had a variety of herbs placed around tea lights at each table, which I loved as a fresh, feel good touch from nature since we are both very outdoorsy.

Don’t get bogged down in the details of planning. Take wedding planning as another reason to have fun interacting with your significant other rather than a point of stress.
