It was such a privilege being a part of Guy’s Bar Mitzvah celebration at Bonai Shalom in Boulder.

It was a classic celebration thanks to the detailed planning and execution by JA Special Events. We are so proud of your accomplishment, Guy, and it was our joy celebrating with you and our family!

We had the pleasure of planning Kelsey & Ian’s backyard Boulder wedding and it’s exciting to see the creative photos from Ryan Polei Photography featured on COUTUREcolorado Wedding blog today!  Props to Statice Floral, Footers Catering, Steuben’s, Manna Food Truck, Sweet Cow Ice Cream, and Pure Energy Events for teaming up to pull off this lovely celebration!

Couture Kelsey

1473Lauren & Brendan love animals, good food, Colorado, Subarus, and great photography.  Their wedding somehow combined all of these elements in perfect winter style this January when they drove from Texas with their beloved dogs Ryleigh & Enzo, to Boulder where the two had met in college.  The fun-spirited ceremony was celebrated outside on the patio of Flagstaff House, known for excellent cuisine and breathtaking views.  Zorn Photography captured not only the fun and fashion of the wedding day but they also spent time with the newlyweds in Breckenridge with snowboards, snowy village scenes, and a bit of snow-angel frolicking.  As of this summer, we’re delighted to welcome Lauren & Brendan back to Colorado as residents…where their hearts have long been and where their dogs and other assorted animals will be happy to call home!

After donning a plaid bowtie and custom shoes etched with mountains, his wedding date, and the line “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, Ian walked to the backyard of his bride’s family home for a First Look at his gorgeous bride.  Kelsey awaited her groom in a stunning Eden Anna Campbell gown reminiscent of the Greek goddesses, clutching a bouquet of balloons that hid her from view until she released them into the air at Ian’s arrival.  Ryan Polei captured the day perfectly in his signature vintage style.

Festive details continued with piñata guestbooks where guests left notes to be read on the couple’s first anniversary.  Signs matching the vintage festive theme of Kelsey & Ian’s invitations encouraged guests to replace their escort cards with polaroid snapshots.  “Mr.” & “Mrs.”  cornhole games and eclectic vintage vignettes entertained guests during cocktail hour.

Footers Catering and food trucks from Steubens, Manna from Heaven, and Sweet Cow Ice Cream offered fun food options, enjoyed at wooden tables adorned with milk glass vases, terrarium fish bowls, and silver animals at each place setting (with contributions from both the couple and Statice Floral Design).  The beer wall offered self-serve taps under a moss-covered cheers sign and a dance floor was lit by Pure Energy Events.

Kelsey and Ian made their grand exit to the cheers of guests waving sparklers and rode off in a vintage car as newlyweds.
