Where did you draw inspiration & ideas from?

"We mostly drew inspiration from Pinterest. We got lucky & chose the very first vendors we met with - each of them were really able to capture our vision for the day & were great to work with."

Did you have a certain theme you wanted to incorporate for your big day?

"We both love Colorado & the outdoors, so we tried to incorporate some earthy feels into our reception venue while rocking the city scape. Merging the two together was a fun challenge, & I may be biased, but I think it turned out beautiful!"

What was one of your favorite moments from your wedding day?

"So many to choose from! Our first look was a such a moment of joy for us! We exploded with relief & happiness when we embraced in that moment. Sharing the sacrament of marriage was our absolute favorite part - our mass was full of people who have been very intentionally apart of our story throughout the years. The dance party at the reception was a blast - which was so important to us."

What advice would you give to other brides?

"Take moments throughout the day to step back, take in the scene, & be grateful. I can thankfully say I remember every part of our day - & I am so glad. Smile & enjoy! It is the start of the very best adventure."
