It’s always important to feel comfortable during your wedding. For starters, hiring the right Denver wedding photographer helps a lot. This professional will always be by your side during your day to capture every moment and immortalize it. From the preparations until the end of the reception party, you can count on your wedding photographer to stand guard on all of your moments so nothing will be missed. Another professional you should hire is a trusted coordination team. These people are there to ensure your wedding day goes as smooth as possible. Rather than do everything yourself, your coordinators will stay on top of every problem and solve it before it affects you. These two professionals are just some of the many people you’ll hire to make your wedding day the one you’ve always envisioned it to be.
Of course, you need not look far to make your wedding day as stress-free as possible. You’ve got your closest girl friends out there looking out for you. These people will provide all the laughs and prevent any difficulty for you. The thought of dressing up together and looking beautiful for this occasion is one for the record books. Once everything is said and done, you’ll look back and appreciate your friends more for being there on your biggest day.
And now, the rest of the story ... When Allison embarked on a college road trip with Devin and his friends to California, little did she know she was about to fall in love with her future husband. Thanks to a fateful missed exit, a resulting Wyoming blizzard and hours of chatting in the backseat, these lovebirds started dating within a few months and never looked back.
Allison and Devin don't need much to be smiling cheek to cheek, having FUN and being themselves, and I love how they poured their laid back, fun-loving personalities into every detail of this wedding. Just take their rehearsal dinner: a BBQ picnic in Wash Park (where they live) with beer, bags and bocce. Amazing.
Desiring an intimate wedding in the city, Grant Humphreys Mansion was an ideal match for these Colorado natives. Plus, the downstairs ballroom certainly met their dance party expectations. They complemented the venue with an array of neutral colors and vintage accents (shutters for escort cards, vintage picture frames and signs) and a vibe that was elegant, comfortable and happy. And how amazing were those bridesmaids' shoes? Just perfect pops of color.
One of my favorite details of the reception was the ice cream bar honoring Allison's late Grandma Dorothy, who at the age of 14, started her own ice cream soda bar and ran the business for over 50 years. So, Devin re-created the sign that hung outside the store and guests were invited to scoop, sprinkle and top away.
(Oh, and the table center pieces dedicated solely to their dog Titan? Priceless.)
Can't say enough about how much I love this unique and hilarious couple. It was my utmost pleasure to capture their special day. Hats off to Ann and Cortney of Cloud 9 Weddings & Papers for their immaculate work and amazing planning, and a huge shout out to the following vendors:
