The Love Story
Coco and Truffles met five years ago while on a play date with their eight year old owners, Katy and Hannah. The girls were neighborhood friends and they both loved “Build-A-Bear.” Katy invited Hannah over to play and asked her to bring her puppy Coco. They planned to have a puppy fashion show with their two dogs. The girls dressed the dogs up in the Build-A-Bear clothes and presented a doggy fashion show for their families. It was a hit and the beginning of a love story. Coco and Truffles became instant friends. When Coco and Hannah had to go home, Coco would cry. Truffles sat by the window barking as Coco left. Katy and Hannah vowed that one day they would grow up and live together so their dogs could get married and never have to leave each others side again. We decided love couldn’t wait and organized a wedding for the adorable pups. The girls were so excited.
The wedding was fashioned in pinks and golds and featured “cocoa” and truffle treats, a golden drip wedding cake, a golden dog bone macaroon groom’s cake, a bohemian puppy tent, and a hot air balloon ride for the adorable couple.

From the bride, Jole: Our wedding was beyond my wildest dreams. Everything felt like it was sprinkled with glitter, completely magical & unreal. Like my fairy godmother waved her wand and all my dreams came true- it sounds so cheesy but it’s true!
We made the cutest unicorn headbands for the flower girls.
I had so many favorite moments, but I will never forget walking through the meadow with my precious dad and feeling the love all around us.
Stephen had a similar favorite memory, “Seeing Jole for the first time in her dress as she was walking down the aisle with her dad is something I will never forget. Jole was literally the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.”
Stephen was the most precious, handsome, happiest, brightest, shining light waiting for me at the end of the aisle. I couldn’t wait to squeeze him and tell him I loved him and to say “YES”!!
My grandpa married us!
For each place setting, my dad made cutting boards.

Alexandria and Jaymeson have been married for five years and decided to elope for their five-year anniversary to renew their vows privately. Their wedding, five years prior lacked a photographer and many important aspects to them, so they decided that renewing their vows privately was the perfect way to celebrate their marriage and the people that they’ve grown into, together. Along with their dogs, Ziggy and Marley, they snuck away to Lake Tahoe.
Alexandria and Jaymeson celebrated with champagne and ice cream!

Corky and Mike met on a blind date set up by a friend. He’s a ski instructor at Vail Resorts, she’s a kindergarten teacher at Vail Christian Academy–and the rest is history. From the beginning, they knew they wanted to incorporate design elements that would reflect their life together in Vail.
The guest book was a pair of antique skis that guests got to sign.
The tables were named after Corky and Mike’s favorite ski runs on Vail Mountain.
Corky had her great grandparents’ handmade wedding dolls placed on the back of their loveseat.
