Morning weddings require some early preparations so when Phil & Emily planned their June vows at Sunrise Amphitheatre, they embraced all the beauties of a daytime soiree. Emily woke before dawn on her wedding day to welcome the hair and makeup stylists in her beautiful Denver home at 5am. Colby Elizabeth Photography began capturing gorgeous images at 7am with striking bouquets from Perfect Petal and chic pink skirts from Frill Clothing. Mimosas and iced coffee, fresh mountain air, sun-dappled grassy meadows, breathtaking Boulder views, and lots of laughter created a pleasant sense of excitement. Phil’s anticipation at seeing his bride walk down the stone stepped aisle in a dreamy Hayley Paige gown from Anna Be was momentarily delayed when our music source (ipad) overheated in the sun after the bridal party song. Some quick skills on the iphone (love that picture!) pulled up Love Story and the ceremony continued with well-deserved applause.
Their celebration continued with a hearty two course gourmet brunch served by the gracious Flagstaff House team. Chosen for the location and view, Flagstaff House also reflected Emily & Phil’s love of fine wine with their flower beds of wine corks and wine wall display. Phil even created grooved wine corks set in wine bottles to display guest table numbers.
Comedy entertainment in the form of a best man duo toast, cake adorned with a custom cake topper fashioned to look like Phil & Emily with their dog, and a bit of dancing on the patio followed. By 3pm, Emily had changed into a cute white honeymoon dress and the two were whisked away by AJ of Denver Luxury Limousines to sip champagne and catch their flight to Napa.
