A Garden Ceremony at the Denver Botanic Gardens

Shelby & Regan | May 29th | Denver, Colorado

From the bride:
Our ceremony was set in the gorgeous ‘Romantic Garden’ that was in full bloom at the Denver Botanic Gardens during Memorial Day weekend. The forecast was predicting rain showers, but we were blessed with a day filled with sunshine.

As guests slid on their shades, we began our wedding ceremony. The cuteness factor rose as two of my adorable kindergarten students vivaciously rang their bells before I walked down the aisle, hand in hand with my Dad.

My Uncle Tony, a near and dear member of my family, officiated our wedding. Having someone so close to us organize the ceremony made our wedding feel so much more sincere and authentic.

Flustered, Regan began his vows, “I, Shelby, take you Regan….” His slip-up lightened the serious mood and put a big smile on his nervous face!

Post-ceremony, guests were invited to beat the heat with frozen yogurt, catered by Pinkberry. While we took our photos, guests strolled around the gardens, enjoying the lush plants.

We started out the reception with a bang as our hilarious bridesmaids and groomsmen paired up and arrived in the ballroom with creative, comical entrances- complete with the Best Man jumping off a flight of stairs over the Maid of Honor’s head!

We eat, danced, and drank late into the night with all of our very best friends and family by our side!
