Kelli & John | June 8th | Boulder, Colorado
From the bride:
I had decided early on in the wedding planning process that I wanted the day of the wedding to be as stress free as possible. It was so comfortable to have our wedding at my parent’s house, and we didn’t have to worry about transporting things from place to place, or making any appointments. I was very relaxed all day, and was able to enjoy every moment.
John and I did a “first look”, which proved to be one of the most special times of the day. It’s weird that on your wedding day, you don’t actually have any time alone with your groom. We took this time to just be together.
My favorite detail was the lawn games. I always pictured our guests enjoying some of our favorite games during cocktail hour. John and I got to partake in some corn hole…I’m pretty sure we won!
The centerpieces on the long tables included bud vases with peonies and garden roses, and lanterns. We had lights strung all over the yard, in the trees, and inside the tent. There just happened to be a beautiful sunset over the Boulder Flatirons, which also added to the décor.
It was John’s idea for us to take “time outs” during the reception to soak it all in. Several times during the party, we both took a moment to look around and realize how blessed we were. Those moments are some of the ones that we treasure most.
Kelli & John’s
Event Planner: A Touch of Bliss. Becky and Sarah were amazing!! They work so well together and they worked so hard to make everything come together and on budget. They had wonderful ideas through out the whole process. We really could not have thrown our wedding with out them. They worked so hard the day of the wedding. They were the first to arrive and the last to leave, and took care of everything from setting up, to running to the store when we ran out of ice, to just making sure the day ran smoothly.
Photographer: Yellow Feather Photography. Beth did an incredible job photographing our wedding. She captured every moment, and her photos really tell the story of our entire day. Not only is she an amazing photographer, she is a joy to work with. She is laid back and reminds you that the day is about you and your groom, and to enjoy it.
Flowers: Somerset Floral Design. Liz did an incredible job with our flowers. I had a vision of peonies, and Liz came up with the perfect bouquets and boutonnieres. She also designed the arch for the ceremony. She was amazing to work with and really helped guide the design of the whole wedding.
DJ: Rock Candy DJ. Johnny did a great job keeping the flow of cocktail hour and dinner. He really shined with the dancing though. He was able to read the crowd and keep the party going all night. He was great with requests and overall did a wonderful job.
Caterer: Abrusci’s Italian Restaurant. Annie was great to work with, and she was able to create a menu of Italian food that we loved! Her team was amazing as well. They worked so hard the day of the wedding, and they really went above and beyond to make sure that everything ran smoothly.
