Alicia  & Spencer  |  June 1st  |  Estes Park, Colorado

From the bride,
Our inspiration for the day was our love of the mountains and the quaint town of Estes Park. We added touches of our alma mater, the University of Florida.

Our first look moment across the small bridge was really great. Seeing the look on Spencer’s  face when he saw me, smiling from ear to ear was so calming. I had been so emotional all morning, tearing up at every little thing, but once I saw him, I was so at ease.

The sun came out right as I walked down the aisle. Seeing my husband at the end of the aisle with tears in his eyes was the most memorable moment.

As we were reciting our vows, it felt like it was just me, Spencer, and the mountains. JamisonGale09 JamisonGale10 JamisonGale11

We made Florida strawberry jam for favors.

Advice: Avoid looking at items that may be out of your price range because once you fall in love, there’s no turning back. Choose vendors that have great customer service.
