An Urban Chic Wedding in Denver

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. An Urban Chic Wedding in Denver

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!

Romance at the Denver Botanic Gardens

Megan & Matthew  |  August 5th  |  Denver Botanic Gardens

Fragrant blooms and lush gardens set the stage for this romantic wedding at the Denver Botanic Gardens.  The couples first look was in the water garden under a gazebo -a little delayed due to rain – but Megan wanted rain on her wedding day so her wish was granted. Their ceremony was officiated by a pastor from their church, and they were surrounded by about 150 guests outside in the romantic garden. The reception was covered in blue lighting and blue tablecloths. The guest favors were small air terrariums, which complemented their garden theme.

A Vintage Chic Wedding

Abbey & Jordan  |  July 13th  |  Estes Park, Colorado

From the photographer, Aldabella Photography:
From the venue to the color palette, we knew this wedding would be gorgeous. From the moment we arrived, Abbey was glowing, so relaxed and excited to marry her best friend. As the moments drew near to see her handsome fiance, we took a few moments to give dad the very first look at his baby girl. As soon as Abbey turned around, the tears started to flow. Dad was speechless as he stood there holding her. After a first look like that, we didn’t think anything could top the emotion that was just witnessed. Boy were we wrong…As we brought Jordan down to see his bride, they were asked to do a few things before we allowed them to open their eyes. We had them take a few steps away from each other just before seeing each other and all I remember was Abbey just laughing and smiling in anticipation. Once their eyes were open, Jordan’s dream was standing there in radiance as Abbey became weak in her knees, she simply laughed uncontrollably.We went from tears of joy to more laughter than I thought possible in less than 20 min. As the day progressed, two families became one, they never stopped smiling and could be found in arms length of each other all night.
