Bridget + Craig | Planet Bluegrass Wedding | Lyons, CO

Bridget + Craig’s wedding day reminded us why we do what we do.  Through teary eyes, we told them so as they prepared for their donut cutting, but we’d like to repeat it now as a reminder to them that they are incredibly special, as are their families + friends…and their wedding day reflected that.  When we look back at 2016, this will be one of the days we remember.  Hugs to you both…and Daisy the pup!

Bailey + Mark | University Club Wedding | Denver, CO

We ended our 2016 season with Bailey + Mark’s winter wedding.  The high temperature for the day was one degree.  That’s right, one.  But, that didn’t stop these two from getting some killer outdoor photos + celebrating to the max!  Santa even made an appearance at their reception.  At the end of the night, as our team + the catering staff hustled to complete the day’s cleanup tasks, Bailey and Mark sat alone at one of the remaining reception tables.  They ate a cupcake together and chatted quietly about the day’s happenings, their favorite parts they hadn’t yet had the chance to discuss, and they watched as the space transformed from their wedding – full of beautiful wintry decor and people they love – to an empty room.  It’s one of the most endearing things we’ve ever seen a couple do.  We tried to shoo them off to an after party or the warmth of their home, but they wanted to stay and watch…for closure, they said.  And yet, it’s just the beginning.  Congrats, you two!  Thanks for ending our our season with such beauty!moriartybrideandgroom-94 Continue reading

Virginia + Peter | Piney River Ranch Wedding, Vail, CO

On a perfect fall day at Piney River Ranch, Virginia + Peter’s closest friends and family sat together on the ceremony deck in the shining sun while the surrounding aspen trees revealed their first pops of gold.  Ready to begin our rehearsal for the next day’s wedding, each person was first encouraged to introduce themselves, describe how they knew the bride or groom, and share stories of their relationships.  I sat quietly, listened, and truly watched the love flow.  It was an intentional moment, full of purpose.  This is how Virginia + Peter planned their wedding…and it’s how they live their lives…with intention, with purpose.  These two have truly inspired us this year as movers + shakers in the modern world of wedding trends + community issues.  Their wedding + strength of character will stick with us, always.  Congrats V + P on being one of our #coupleswhorock!

Lindsay + Chris | Spruce Mountain Ranch Wedding | Larkspur, CO

Lindsay isn’t a cowgirl and Chris isn’t a cowboy, but after falling in love with the rustic charm of Spruce Mountain Ranch, they decided to design their wedding day with loads of western flair.  We loved all the details: cowboy boots full of succulents, shotgun shell boutonnieres, escort cards attached to mini cowboy hats, fabric napkins in mismatched western prints, cowboy figurine place cards, and a longhorn skull overflowing with floral at the head table.  Proof that even “theme weddings” don’t have to be cheesy!wiggins_wed_3118 Continue reading
