Love in the Rain by Devo Photography

Sarah & Joe  |  May 19, 2014

From the bride: Our wedding was whimsical but chic wedding with a charcoal grey and dark purple palette. From the signs to the favors, we made a lot of things ourselves.  It poured rained and we had to move the ceremony inside at the last minute, but it turned out wonderful!

 Purple linens highlighted simple centerpieces. We collected vases from thrift store for months so we could have a variety of different looks for each table. A Wedding in the Rain A Wedding in the Rain A Wedding in the Rain

 Looking back, I would get a to-go box of the food because we were too excited to eat. A Wedding in the Rain

My advice: Start planning early, it will save you money! A Wedding in the Rain

Blessed in Boulder

Sarah & Chris |  May 16th  | Boulder, Colorado

From the bride: Our wedding day was one of incomparable joy and celebration. It was blessed- it rained before and after the ceremony, but stopped for the perfect amount of time for us to have the ceremony outside- which was my dream.

I had ferns in my bouquet, to represent New Zealand, a place I lived for a while and is dear to my heart. I have also loved sunflowers ever since I was a girl, so I had many sunflowers at my wedding.

We had communion at our wedding and invited all our friends and family to join us in taking it; this was very important to us because we recognized that our wedding day was a day not just about us but about what God has done in our lives.

Fun & Full of Colorado Flavor

Katie & Ryan  |  June 22nd  | Castle Rock, Colorado

From the bride:  Ryan proposed to me live on-air while I was doing the weather! It was so special and so perfect, I couldn’t stop giggling, see it here.

We wanted our wedding style to be fun and full of Colorado flavor. We are both Colorado natives and love everything about our state! We are CU Boulder alums and really wanted to tie that into our wedding. We love to have fun together and just wanted to make sure that all of our guests enjoyed themselves and had a blast celebrating with us!

DrakeBusch0110Ryan and I were in a long distance relationship and so my mom was our wedding planner. She added so many personal touches to our wedding.

I LOVED my shoes! I custom ordered royal blue high heels from Etsy. They were so perfect. Blue it my favorite color so I know I will get to wear them again. I didn’t want to do the traditional white because I won’t wear white heels again. I loved having a pop off color to go with my white dress. I also love how bright they look in the pictures.

The ceremony was outside in the backyard of the Cielo at Castle Pines. It’s absolutely gorgeous, surrounded by pine trees and the foothills. There are wildflowers along the hillside. I couldn’t ask for a better venue. It was perfect.

One of my favorite ceremony memories is when Ryan spun me in circles down the aisle after we were married! It was so much fun and a memory I will always treasure.

My favorite detail was the honeymoon jar. Ryan and I bought big mason jars and put them at the bar for our guests to contribute to our honeymoon fund. Ryan surprised me with the honeymoon. He kept it a surprise where we were going! I was so excited when I found out at the airport. But it was so fun to have extra money to spend and put towards the honeymoon. We would buy a drink and cheers towards whoever put the money in the jar!

I hated when the night ended. I did not want to leave the reception! We were having so much fun. We actually took our entire bridal party in a limo ride after the reception. It was so much fun. Typically you see the bride and groom get in the limo and ride away. We wanted to share the moment with all of our friends that have been with us through our entire relationship. So we drove around Castle Rock and through the foothills with our friends. Nearly our entire wedding party went to a nearby brewery after the wedding.

My advice: Don’t rush! We got engaged in August and got married in June. Looking back, I would have waited another year. We wanted to get married so badly and wanted it to be in the summer.  A lot of vendors and venues were booked by the time we started seriously looking in September. I didn’t realize how far out people book everything. So I would say take your time with the wedding process but do realize how much time you need to get everything done! Soak in the whole process because it’s a once in a lifetime feeling marrying your best friend and having your friends and family cheering you along!

Katie’s RECOMMENDED VENDORS

Venue: Cielo at Castle Pines. This majestic venue is stunning. It’s nestled in the foothills of Castle Pines. It’s the closest “mountain venue” without the commute. We held our ceremony outdoors and it was so perfect. We held the reception just a few steps inside the gorgeous venue. It’s absolutely beautiful. It has a wide open floor with a brick fire place. The venue is so big that it speaks for itself.

Photographer & Photo Booth: Drake Busch Photography. Ryan and I are both journalism majors, so we’ve had a lot of practice in photography. We were pretty picky about who we chose to do our photography. We love Drake because he takes more natural wedding pictures. We didn’t want pictures that looked too professional or stuffy. We wanted our photographer to catch us in the moment and to really capture our personalities.

Caterer: Catering by Design. We loved using this caterer. My parents and I went to the tasting. It was so much fun. They do such a great job selecting a menu that is perfect for you.

Cake: Cakeheads. We LOVED our cupcakes!

Florist: Daisy’s Front Porch. We used a smaller florist and absolutely loved them!! We got so many compliments on our flowers. I would recommend them to anyone!

Linens: Event Rentals of Denver. We choose gray linens with royal blue and yellow napkins to add a pop of color.

DJ & Lighting: Edge Event Productions. They did a great job picking out music that everyone could dance too. They kept the pace going all night. They also did the blue lighting for our reception.

Videographer: 1321 Studios Wedding Films. Jeff was excellent! As a TV Anchor, picking the videographer was my favorite part. I love film and was so excited about having a videographer. Jeff did such a great job capturing all the highlights of our wedding. He also wasn’t intrusive and caught us in the moment, rather than staging anything. His editing skills are amazing.

Wedding Gown Designer: Pronovias’ Noray gown from Blue Bridal. My dress was very hard to pick. I wanted something that was free and outdoorsy. It was very easy to wear and I could move and dance, which was important.

Hair & Makeup: Copperfalls in Castle Rock // Invitations: Wedding Paper Divas // Officiant: Pastor Dan Hettinger

Honeymoon Location: Cancun! It was a surprise until I got to the airport. Ryan booked the honeymoon and we wanted it to be a surprise where we were going. He told me to pack something warm. It was so fun trusting in my husband that the trip would be fun. Plus, as a bride, I had enough on my plate planning-wise. It was nice to have the groom take over the honeymoon details!
