A Snowy Spring Wedding in Colorado

October 5, 2017 / 0 Comments

From the Magazine: Krystle & Ben

From the bride: We had planned for a green spring May 1st wedding. Originally, it was supposed to rain all weekend, so I came to terms with it and bought 50 umbrellas for our guests and was going to try to make the most of it. Those umbrellas were later returned after the rain changed to snow, which was a very unexpected but great turn of events.

A Stunning Autumn Mountain Wedding in Durango

October 3, 2017 / 0 Comments

Jenne Anne & Robert  /  October 1st  /  Durango, Colorado

From the bride:  It was important to us that the wedding reflected our adventurous laid back spirits. We tried to implement our favorite things and places in Durango as well as: the outdoors, our pups, local beer, and good food.  The day before the wedding we incorporated the hot springs, mountain biking, a SKA brew tour, and dinner at Steamworks. On Sunday, we had everyone join us for breakfast and bacon bloody mary’s. After, we rode crusier bikes along the river trail.

Our ceremony was located in one of our favorite meadows in the mountains. The fall colors were at their peak and most of the leaves fell from the aspens the next day. My husband crafted our incredible arbor and built it earlier that afternoon. We had a short intimate ceremony with our closest friends and family. Our pups (kids) were right beside us wearing floral collars so they didn’t feel left out. We chose to have our unity ceremony with two copper custom engraved mugs and a matte grey growler filled with our favorite craft beer.

Our reception was short and sweet. We ate and did our first dance, which was pretty magical, then we headed downtown. We were out on the town the whole evening in our wedding attire. I laughed and giggled the entire night!

A Literary Themed Wedding in Downtown Denver

September 26, 2017 / 0 Comments

Amy & Kalen met when they were both working at the Grand Hyatt in Denver, so it was a no-brainer for them to tie the knot on the 38th floor Pinnacle Club with sweeping views of downtown Denver and the Rocky Mountains. Through their wedding decor, they shared their love for books with their guests: books as centerpieces, bookmarks as table cards, and a literary love quote cake.

From the bride: We are both total book nerds and wanted a classy, literary themed wedding. We wanted the style of our wedding to be classic so our colors were navy, dusty rose and gold. We based our whole wedding around the book theme, using lots of books to decorate.

Our ring bearer carried an old vintage book that held our wedding rings.

We bought an old typewriter for guests to write advice for us on and it also served as a cool decoration piece.  Our signature drink was called Amortentia after a love potion from the Harry Potter books.

The table numbers some of our favorite books and the place cards were bookmarks that also doubled as wedding favors.

We used some of our favorite quotes from books to decorate our wedding cake.

Our first dance was really memorable. We took dance lessons and learned a special dance to our first song “I Choose You” by Andy Grammer.

Advice

Relax and enjoy the whole process. The planning can be a lot of fun if you make sure to stay on top of everything, but if you wait until the last minutes to plan things, or worry too much about the little stuff, it can become a little stressful.  I’m super glad we spent our money on great photographers, a good wedding planner, and a great venue with amazing food!
