Thank you, Colorado. Lisa O’Dwyer, Pink Diamond Events, and Hana Style Designs all lived up to their extraordinary possible working on Joette and Justin’s wedding day, full of darling information and wonderful suggestions to inspire your own wedding day.

From the bride, Joette: We each enjoy the outdoors and wanted a stunning, all-natural scene for the backdrop of our wedding. We wanted the day to represent who we are and to be an intimate celebration with the folks closest to us. We wanted get out of town and I asked Justin – beach or mountains? He picked mountains. Oddly adequate, my parents have pals who just completed building out a residence in Estes Park, and they had extended an invitation to check out. My mom and I went for a weekend, and it was just stunning. I sent Justin some photographs and then my mom and I spent the weekend seeking at venues with her friend as our personal guide.

I feel our wedding was classic and timeless in a rustic setting (for lack of more eloquent words!). I wanted soft tones to balance out the wood and the dark area at the reception. All round it was specifically what I envisioned and the pictures perfectly capture that feeling. Our personalities are a mix of rugged and soft. I believe our flowers included some hydrangeas and soft pink roses, we had some greenery hanging from the chandeliers. We also incorporated branches in the table settings and our florist spray painted some succulents gold which was an great touch.

Any guidance for couples planning their weddings now? The double edged sword is that images and ideas are readily available through print and social media. It’s extremely useful and yet overwhelming. It also tends to make it less difficult to get swept up in all of the incorrect items and forget why you are really arranging a wedding. When your wedding day comes there are often elements outside of your handle – no matter how considerably planning you have accomplished. Surround your self with men and women you can trust and go into the day knowing that you could have a good story or two to tell. The objective is not a ideal day, but a joyful life collectively.
