Love in Silverton

Photography by Art & Soul Photography

From the bride, Jane:
Our wedding was held at the Eureka Lodge (an old coal miner’s lodge) just outside of Silverton.  My sister and a  wonderful friend were the masters of ceremonies.  We had very heartfelt, but humorous vows.  The ceremony was outside overlooking the most beautiful view.  The pulpit was an old whiskey barrel.
It started raining as soon as we finished taking our photos. Dinner (which my mom cooked with lots of help from our family and friends) was delicious.  Drinks were served in wine glasses and mason jars.  My dad sang “Don’t Worry Be Happy” for his speech.  During our first dance our 100lb German Shepherd joined in.  The rain let up just as the serious dancing started.  We removed the tarp from overhead.  The white lights and stars where beaming and the party began.  It was the best night of our life.
-Invitations were homemade on recycled paper bags.

-Our centerpieces were photo cubes with pictures of Scott and I with family and friends throughout our life.

-Instead of cake, we served milk and my mom’s homemade sugar cookies.

“Just Plain Fun”

Photography by Illuminarts Photography

From the bride, Kelsey:
Our wedding day was just plain fun. It rained on and off all day, but the sun came out just in time for our ceremony and reception. Dark clouds hung over Silver Mountain in the distance; it was beautiful. Everyone was dancing up a storm all night.  We kept the party going until the wee hours of the morning with the biggest campfire I have ever seen.

Chris cut 16 log slices, one for each table. We laid a lace doily on each log and set a lantern on top. Every table had arrangements of local organic flowers done by the groom’s mother, as well as candles in mason jars and wooden table numbers. The escort cards were hand lettered and placed in a crate shipped to me from my grandparents’ farm in Wisconsin.
The cake resembled baskets of strawberries. Cake Cafe did an awesome job making this idea a reality! Plus, it was delicious.

-Chris made the arch that we were married under with logs from our cabin in the San Juan’s. He worked hard on it and it was a very special touch to our wedding.

-Our guestbook was a slice of wood in a shadow box that people wrote on. It looks awesome on our wall!


Photographer:  Illuminarts Photography Drew is awesome! He is very talented and one of the kindest people around. He thankfully helped me make the photo booth into a reality!
