“Simply Us” at Lionsgate Event Center

Melissa & Corey | July 27th | Lionsgate Event Center

From the bride, Melissa:
Everything about our day described us to a “T”.  We combined our love for the outdoors and mountain life with the things that truly meant something to us. We made mason jar photo holders, painted all of the canoe centerpieces by hand and built all of our programs into fans for the guests.  From the ceremony to the food, we personalized every detail of the day.

Corey made fishing fly boutonnieres for all of the groomsmen. ElevatePhoto05 ElevatePhoto06 ElevatePhoto07 ElevatePhoto08 ElevatePhoto09 ElevatePhoto10We wanted the ceremony to be unique and represent our love for each other. We wrote our own vows and had our cousin was the officiant. We put the bridal party on opposite sides so that the bridesmaids could see the bride and the groomsmen could see the groom.

Our advice: Relax, enjoy the planning and don’t overwhelm yourselves, only focus on what needs to be done at that time. It is a day about the two of you and should definitely be one of the best days of your lives. ElevatePhoto16

Autumn with Fun & Flair

Hannah & Bret | October 20th |  Boulder, Colorado

From the bride, Hannah:
Our wedding was inspired by the season and fall colors and also had splashes of vintage flair. We wanted the day to be personal, fun and simple.

I loved my dress! It was all lace. KateNoelle0104 KateNoelle0105 KateNoelle0106 KateNoelle0107

Our faith is very important to us and we always wanted to get married in a church. While we were in college, we attended the college ministry at First Presbyterian and it was very special place to us both. The ceremony took place in the chapel, which is full of beautiful stained glass that was beautifully lit during our early evening ceremony.

My favorite detail was one I had no control over- the awe-inspiring fall leaves were just PERFECT on our wedding day. I tell everyone that God created the perfect day for us. Somehow, my bouquet matched perfectly and that was one thing I was always remember.

While planning our wedding, we were constantly asked where the reception was. I was always amazed at mens’ excitement over our wedding as soon as we told them our reception was at Folsom Field. Throughout college and even now, Bret and I were avid CU football fans and we will always root for them. The club level at Folsom Field has an amazing view of the field from above. However, it was the beautiful fall sunset and stunning sight of the mountains that took our guests breath away that evening.

My advice: Have fun with the planning process! I tell all my engaged girlfriends that they have a choice to make- they can choose to be stressed out about the planning and make themselves and everyone else crazy OR they can choose to enjoy it, roll with the punches and have fun. The choice you make will greatly affect how everything goes in the end. You will encounter bumps along the way but all that matters at the end of it all is that you will married to love of your life and nothing is better than that moment!

Casual & Rustic in Colorado Springs

Alison & Shaun  |  August 18th  |  Colorado Springs, Colorado

From the bride, Alison:
Our wedding rings didn’t make their way to the best-man in time for the ceremony so we had to exchange “imaginary rings” – as soon as the recessional was over we exchanged our real rings, it could have been a big problem but it ended up being a funny moment in the ceremony that we will always remember, and our actual ring exchange after the ceremony ended up being more intimate/romantic – a moment that we will always cherish.

kk21kk19kk20kk17kk13kk12 kk14 kk18 kk15We had San Pellegrino with paper straws passed around to keep our guests hydrated and cool during the ceremony.
kk16The most memorable moment for me was when I finally walked down the aisle with my dad and saw Shaun.
kk10Shaun’s mother got us a Love Box and we did a Love Box ceremony instead of the traditional unity candle.
kk11kk01kk09 kk05 kk06 kk07The best part about the reception was seeing how all the work and planning came together – well I guess that’s second to seeing all our friends and family in the same place, all there to celebrate us.
kk03kk04My advice: Don’t stress out about the details – keep in perspective that it isn’t about the perfect dress, the perfect centerpieces, the perfect wedding – it’s about celebrating the life you are starting together – enjoy the day because it goes by so quickly.
Photographer: Stephanie Brauer Photography. One word: AMAZING! Stephanie captured every last detail of our wedding perfectly. Stephanie is passionate about her work and I feel beyond lucky that we found her!

Event Planner: Entwined Planning. Danielle was the reason our day went off without a hitch.  She took care of everything and made our vision a reality – absolutely perfect.

Venue: The Margarita at Pine CreekWe wanted an outdoor ceremony and The Margarita provided the perfect backdrop for what we were going for, a laid-back feel while still being elegant – having our wedding at the Margarita was like having it at our own home – the staff was incredible and made sure everything was taken care of and that all of our guests were comfortable and the food was excellent.
