Jennifer & Joseph | May 21, 2011 | Denver, Colorado
From the bride:
We had a traditional American wedding reception followed by a costume ceremony presentation of the Korean Culture.
Photography by Jason + Gina Wedding PhotographersI knew I wanted something bright, so as soon as I saw the color key lime, I knew that was our color! I was scared at first that it might be too bright, but everything went really well together so I was relieved. The Korean costume ceremony (Pae-baek Ceremony) is to pay respect to our elders, receive blessings, and also “catch” the gifts of our future. The elders toss different items/foods into our costume and our objective is to catch all or as many of the items as we can. Each item represents a different idea, like children, success, wealth, health and prosperity. The majority of the items thrown to us were items to represent children, our families want us to have many children.
After the ceremony, my maid of honor and I had the hardest time figuring out how to bustle my dress. In the midst of our panic, all we could do was laugh about it. We called an emergency meeting of bridesmaids. When we opened the door for them, they had a very worried and concerned look on their faces because they thought it was a different kind of an emergency. We finally figured it out and it was just a fun moment for us all. I loved how the room constantly changed colors, which gave a slightly different ambiance with each color. FAVORITE DETAIL
We wanted to keep the wedding traditional, but just to be a tad different; we added a “chicken and waffles” dish to our dinner selection which was delicious!

Perfect for Spring or Summer, this week’s inspiration is our favorite color, green. From bright lime to dark and earthy, green looks amazing by itself or combined with a number of complementary colors.

Sheri & David | September 11th | Aspen, Colorado
From the bride:
I will never forget looking out over the Rockies’ and whispering to my new husband “We are absolutely the luckiest people in the entire world!” He whispered back “I know, and I can’t believe how much I love you”. Funny part is – we completely forgot that David had a microphone clipped to his tuxedo. The entire audience could hear our little whispers throughout the ceremony and needless to say, there was not a dry eye in the entire place! While embarrassing, everyone admits that it made the ceremony very personal.
Photography by Eliesa Johnson, Photogen, Inc.Our guests rode the gondola from the base of Aspen Mountain up to the peek at 11,212 feet and were immediately seated on a terraced lawn overlooking the Rocky Mountains. I can’t imagine a more happy moment in my life than marrying my best friend and honestly I can’t imagine a more beautiful setting. I’ve traveled to many beautiful places in 29 years and I can honestly say that Aspen is one of the most beautiful! You won’t find a city that is as charming. While small, the city is full of culture. Great music venues, art, shopping and restaurants! There is so much to do that it’s easy for guests to turn the destination wedding into a mini vacation.
