Brittany & Chad | June 11, 2011 | Durango, Colorado
From the bride:
We had decided early on that we were having a Colorado wedding in my home area of Southwest Colorado. We also wanted a black and white color palette – mainly for the b/w photos and because I was going for a retro look.

I wore my moms pearls.I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED my wedding dress, veil and pink shoes!The yellow roses I carried in my bouquet were in remembrance of my grandma. Our preacher had also married my parents 30 years ago.The arch that we were married under was made by my brother. The mountains still had snow on them and the rustic look of the aspen arch perfectly framed them. I messed up my wedding vows. I thought I was finished repeating after the preacher but he wasn’t finished! I guess it gave everybody a good laugh. The evening was perfect – perfect weather, perfect setting, deer were even wandering through the meadow as the reception was going on!Our first dance – literally was our FIRST dance. Chad doesn’t like to dance at all and refused to practice with me. It also happened to be the first time I had ever danced with my dad – my dress ended up tangled and we were laughing through the entire dance.RECOMMENDED VENDORS
