Love Blooms in Estes by Devo Photography

Roya & Clayton | July 21st | Estes Park, Colorado

From the bride: We chose Estes Park as we love the outdoors and ideally wanted our wedding outdoors.  An olive green and charcoal grey color palette incorporated the natural environment.

We had subtle hints of peach and pale pink in the flowers, but overall tried to have green be the focus of our flowers.

Place cards were hung from a large white garden gate that has a heart in the center. This gate came from Clayton’s mother’s garden and we felt it not only brought her love into our wedding but it was a unique way for us to incorporate our love for the outdoors.

Instead of a guest book that would be tucked away, we had guests sign a wooden wine box. After the wedding, we stained it to seal in the signatures. It is now a decoration for our home as opposed to being tucked away in a drawer.

Our rings were carried in a small treasure chest as a nod to our love for adventure. Inside the chest, there was a poem about the significance of wedding rings. Della Terra wedding by Devo Photography, Estes Park Colorado

Our ceremony was on the longer side but this is because we added lots of personal touches- we wrote a piece for our parents (in which afterwards we both went down and hugged our parents), recited our own vows, and acknowledged our loved ones that were not present on that day. There was a special piece about Clayton’s deceased father, Ted, who was with us in spirit that day.

 We both absolutely loved our cake. The cake was a simple, yet elegant round three-tiered cake. It featured a beautiful, edible olive green bow with a brooch in the center. There was beautiful sugar peony atop and then pieces of edible lace inspired by my dress.  I surprised Clayton with a grooms cake that incorporated things personal to Clayton: our dogs, rock climbing shoes and magazine, a Bronco’s jersey, and a Firefighter’s helmet.

My advice: Several people gave us this advice, and its often easy to lose sight of- but remember why there is a wedding in the first place- its about the love between you and your partner. Too often, we become engrossed in details that only you will notice if they aren’t perfect. Enjoy each other’s love and the commitment you are about to make and don’t stress over “stuff.”

Roya’s RECOMMENDED VENDORS

Rockstar Photographer: DEVO PHOTOGRAPHY {more info}. Devon was amazing. There were issues bustling my dress and she got right in and helped the bridesmaids. She was not only a photographer, but also a very helpful extra pair of hands and eyes that day. The photography speaks for itself. It is amazing and truly has a timeless feel to it.

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.
