A Spring Wedding at Evergreen Lake House

From the photographer, Chris McLaughlin:  It rained and rained and then finally let up moments before the ceremony started. The bride, Mandy, had her heart set on an outside ceremony so we rushed a few chairs outside, had the guests gather around, and pulled off a last minute miracle!

Rustic Meets Modern at Devil's Thumb Ranch

A Rustic Meets Modern Wedding at Devil's Thumb Ranch | Colorado Weddings Magazine

From the bride: We were married in a meadow with the mountains as our backdrop. We adorned the ceremony structure with clusters of sunflowers and a crystal chandelier. During the ceremony, one lonely cloud showed up and dumped on us so umbrellas were hastily handed out as we exchanged vows under the raindrops. Fortunately, as a bride, I was so happy to be getting married that I giggled instead of cried.

A Modern, Romantic & Fun Wedding

Sasha & Chauncey  |  March 12th  |  Denver, Colorado

From the bride: We wanted the wedding to represent us as much as possible and in every aspect. The food was unique, our music was special (mainly to us), and the venue had a cool, industrial vibe that definitely stood out.

 THE CEREMONY: Our ceremony was beautiful, short, and sweet. We wanted to keep it short so our guests didn’t have to sit through a long and agonizing ceremony!

THE GUEST BOOK:  We chose to go with mad lib style cards instead of a traditional guest book.

THE FAVORS:  Since our hashtag was #Saucey2016 (Sasha + Chauncey = Saucey), we thought it was unique to do mini hot sauce bottles labeled Hot Saucey.

A Rocky Mountain Wedding

Stephanie & Jared  |  June 13th

From the bride: Three words…..One. Long. Engagement. We were engaged for almost two years prior to the wedding day. Jared was in school until the December prior to the wedding. So, with that kind of stress we thought it was best for us to hold some of the wedding planning until he was finished. That left us six months to actually accomplish most of the work.

We wanted our wedding to match our lifestyle….we love the outdoors and boating. So we went with a bit of outdoor rustic theme with nautical elements.

 All in all, the wedding planning ended up being mostly a team effort. We had some rocky roads in the planning, but we managed to not kill each other! It was not always a fun process, so we hated and enjoyed it all at the same time. We just had to remember to celebrate the big decision maker days and try to enjoy as much as possible. I feel like we accomplished that task… End of day…we are married! And we are happy!
