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.

A Rustic Wedding at Chatfield Botanic Gardens

From the bride, Bonnie: Our wedding was simple, rustic and classic. Since we had a lot of family coming in from out-of-town we wanted to show them the rustic charm of Colorado. The beautiful barn and the surrounding botanic gardens at Chatfield Botanic Gardens was our inspiration.

THE CEREMONY
We held our ceremony at the open air chapel (a cute gazebo). The ceremony was really simple and quick, we had a family friend as our officiant. Ben and I aren’t particularly religious, but we love Harry Potter so we had our officiant hold a Harry Potter book!

THE DÉCOR
Simple and rustic. We put together sunflowers and small daisies in mason jars for the centerpieces, and our moms made wine bottles with fairy lights. That was about it!

ADVICE
This is really hard to take and everyone says it but just step back every so often and remember that it’s a party you are throwing to celebrate your new life together. It should be fun! It shouldn’t be stressful.  Also spend money on a great photographer. That is what you will look back on for the rest of your lives, no one will remember the food but you will always look at the pictures!

A Spring Wedding at Evergreen Lake House

From the photographer, Chris McLaughlin:  It rained and rained and then finally let up moments before the ceremony started. The bride, Mandy, had her heart set on an outside ceremony so we rushed a few chairs outside, had the guests gather around, and pulled off a last minute miracle!
