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!

    Looks like you guys had perfect timing for the Boulder Autumn Colors. Made for a very lovely atmosphere!
Magic at Garden of the Gods

Emily & Eric |  November 3rd  |  Colorado Springs

From the photographer, Trystan Photography:
Many people think Colorado is like Canada, or Alaska, heck… even the Midwest: bitter cold and covered in snow in the winter. But they would be mistaken, because while most of Colorado’s High Country is covered in snow, the rest of the state is not, and I think it would be a stretch to call it “bitter cold”. Many days, even up at the ski resorts, a visitor to Colorado might find 50-60 degree days and a whole ton of sunshine (over 300 days a year of sunny skies).

Emily and Eric’s wedding was no exception: while many parts of the country could have been called “cold”, this day at The Garden of the Gods Club was anything but. Warm temperatures, and crystal clear air made the views from the back lawn of The Garden of the Gods Club to… die… for! I love photographing weddings here as it is truly one of the prettiest places on Earth.

Ninja Meets Mountain Chic by Devon K Photography

Darcy & Antony | September 16th | Edwards, Colorado

From the bride, Darcy
Our wedding was a martial-art/mountain themed celebration. We had martial arts stuff everywhere because we are both elite level Taekwondo fighters (former national & Olympic team members) and wanted to bring in our own personality to our wedding. We included wood accents and a navy blue, white and gold color palette.

Our ceremony was held on the lawn with the most spectacular view. It was a simple, but sweet ceremony. We created our own vows and a close friend married us. devo08 devo09The cocktail hour was our first real shining moment. We bought over 300 pine boards and had all our guests breaking them. It was a wild, crazy, exhilarating way to spend cocktail hour!


My favorite detail was the cake topper-custom bobbleheads of us in our martial arts gear.


For favors, we created personalized gold medals with an image of us and said “Darcy and Tony’s wedding extravaganza” and everyone wore them throughout the wedding. We also gave away throwing stars as favors, which (thank god) did not inflict too much damage.

devo11  Antony cut our cake with a katana samurai sword! He almost lobbed off a few heads, but I was just happy he didn’t totally destroy our cake!

During the dancing, things got wild when we handed out karate headbands. It was a fun way to involve our guests and EVERYONE wore one and loved them! We also started out our first dance by playing the “Rocky” anthem song and pretending like we were entering a boxing fight. We slowed it down and danced to U2 after that.


My advice: Your wedding will be the best day of your life, if you let it be. Hire a wedding coordinator, plan as much as you can, then just relax!



{Rockstar} Photographer: Devon K Photography. Can’t say enough about Devo!!! They did our engagement shoot and wedding and there is not a day that goes by that I don’t drool over the pics they sent us. Not only that, but they are professionals to the highest degree. If someone needed help, they were there to help. With smiles on their faces, they weren’t just documenting the day, they were part of it.

Venue: The Lodge and Spa at Cordillera. We received the most AMAZING service before, during and after our wedding. It was truly stress-free and so perfect! I can’t say enough about the staff and location!! Plus, the rooms are to die for! Fire in every room and the most beautiful balconies!

DJ: DJ Maestro, Tony London. I honestly told Tony that I wanted to get married again just so he could DJ it. I strongly believe that music MAKES the wedding a party and it’s so critical. Tony was an active participant in the wedding and was literally smiling ear to ear the whole time. What a ball! Before the wedding, he was super responsive, answering every question I had and took care of every detail. He’s absolutely the best!!!

Florist: Wildflower Floral. Flawless bouquets and arrangements and a beautiful vision, Wildflower is the best!! I would recommend them to anyone looking for the perfect buds on their special day!

Invitations/Programs: SweetWater Letterpress. Based in California, these letterpress pro’s create one of a kind and beautiful wedding packages. LOVED my invites!

Videographer: Peak Impact Productions (they were amazing!!!)

Hair & Makeup: Natosha CookeAmazing work and uses an airbrush.

Event Planner: Opulent Events, Mallory Woods. If you want to relax and enjoy your wedding, I’d tell you to go ahead and have Mallory handle everything. Every detail was attended to and she made the day so special!
