Not many women can say they married their fifth grade crush, and not many high school sweethearts can say they never once broke up – even after attending two different colleges. But when it comes to the story of Molly and Wynn, all of the above applies.
Ten years after their first date as high school freshmen, Wynn popped the question last summer in the Bahamas. While strolling around Sugar Cay island in waist-deep, crystal clear water, he got down on one knee, pulled a Ziploc bag from the pocket of his swim trunks and proposed. (I know. I’m swooning, too.)
So, in honor of where this adorable duo got engaged, they had a Caribbean-inspired rehearsal dinner complete with fresh leis, roasted pig, hanging lights and wine straight from Molly’s grandpa’s winery in Napa. It was the perfect kick-off to a perfect weekend.
Fulfilling their dream for an outdoor summer wedding in a city they’d known since childhood, they chose to hold all their events at Wynn’s parents’ home in Boulder on July 13, 2013. Between the amazing lake, view of the foothills and incredible garden, this location was not only beaming with natural beauty, but also where Wynn’s older brother tied the knot a few years prior.
Combining elegance with a fun and casual vibe, they chose a summer palette of white, green, coral, magenta and pink with lots of garden roses. Between the centerpieces and chandeliers billowing with greenery and bright, flirty flowers dotting the long tables, the reception tent was truly stunning. SO much fun was had by all, and the pictures will tell you.
Although this couple has been together for over a decade, it’s so obvious how young in love they are and how much admiration, loyalty and respect they have for one another. I loved every minute I spent with Wynn and Molly and their families and friends. I’m so grateful to have been part of such a special, wonderful occasion and wish them a lifetime of happiness!
