Before a man gets married, he will spend a good chunk of his time with friends. These people know every inch of your personality. All of these things change when you meet a girl and fall in love with her. All of sudden, most of your time will be spent on this person. As the years pass by, you get to know this person enough to marry her. You’re now ready to settle down and start a new chapter of your life with this girl. And as you’re planning your big day, all of your best buddies will definitely be there to cheer you on. Take heart with the thought that no matter how hard planning a wedding gets, you can count on your friends to help you out in any way they can. These people are practically your brothers and they won’t allow you to experience hardships when they can chip in and ease the load on your shoulders.
When everything is said and done, you can now celebrate this momentous event with your wife. One of the many things you need to do is have your photos taken with the entire entourage. Of course, all of your friends will be there too. It’s the job of your Colorado wedding photographers to capture every moment, especially the candid ones with your buddies. Since boys will always be boys, there will always be photos that showcase how rowdy your friends can be around you and your new wife.
A little bit more about the couple and their wedding day ... not only was this one of my favorite weddings of all time (and my biggest of the year), but this couple truly stole my heart. How much do I adore Regan and Jack? Let me count the ways...First, they met on a blind date. Thanks to the proximity of their families being friends and the intuition of Jack's younger sister Morgan, it all began over brunch in New York City. And even though they were living on opposite sides of the country at the time (Regan in NY and Jack in SD), well, love knows no distance. Their wedding was a black tie Colorado mountain fairy tale. Fulfilling their dream to get married on a mountaintop, they exchanged their vows amid the breathtaking views of the Beaver Creek Wedding Deck while tugging at everyone's hearts. Accompanied by her dapper groom, Regan was an absolutely stunning bride. The color palette of corals, creams and green was playful and perfectly transitioned into a lovely reception at Beano's Cabin. The abundance of natural birch, candlelight, roses and hydrangea made for stunning tablescapes and a warm atmosphere. Love and laughter filled the room from the bottom up.
Their first dance song was "Smile" by Uncle Kracker, the song that reminded them of each other at the beginning of their long-distance love story. "There was something about the other person that just made us SO happy, and even from 3,000 miles away, we could put a smile on each other's face," said Regan.
Her dad was quite the hit during the reception, too. From playing Neil Young on the guitar during dinner to a surprise father-daughter dance number to busting out a little "Mustang Sally" later on, he was just the best.
I don't think anyone stopped smiling or grooving during this grand party. Between Funkiphino's energy and paper lanterns a plenty, the mood was magical.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Jack and Regan for including me in this special occasion. Your friends and families are amazing and you truly made me feel like one of yours. Major props to Emily from Bella Design and Planning, who I can only hope to work with again. And to all the other vendors who helped make this day as perfect as it was, bravo to you all!
