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.

The string quartet paused their music as a baby blue Porshe bumped snappily along the woodchip path and Theron hopped out to open the door for his sister Electra, stunning in a Justin Alexander gown and colorful cascade bouquet.  On the arm of her mother, Electra walked down a rose strewn aisle to marry Justin (in his custom 3 piece suit from Moda Man) next to a gurgling meadow creek with stunning mountain views.  The Porshe, a recently restored model Electra & Theron’s late father had owned, sat as a sweet tribute in the background.

After playful parasol portraits with Alive Studios in unexpected fields of purple lupine that complimented the bridesmaid dresses, Electra and Justin joined their cocktail hour where guests enjoyed buckets of beer and yard games including a custom cornhole set Electra had painted in the fashion of the Colorado flag with E & J in script on the bottom.  Mad libs cards on a vintage sidearm desk provided an entertaining guestbook experience.

The tented reception was adorned in romantic twinkle lights, touches of purple, mountain themed table names set in aspen logs, and colorful bursts of wildflower centerpieces from SA Floral Design.  Custom coasters, personalized organza bags of candy, and matchbook momentos thoughtfully decorated each place setting.  A whimsical cake adorned in playful flowers was the highlight of a dessert table decked out in whoopee pies and assorted sweets, all beautifully created by Sugar.  As the sun set, massive trees outside were uplit in a soft purple wash and a fire pit flickered with LED candles and a wreath of lights wrapped in tulle.

The festive crackle and glow of sparklers mingled with excited cheers of family and friends as Electra and Justin made their way on the woodchip path to their getaway limo.

Electra & Justin, thank you for letting us be part of your exquisite, romantic, fun day.  It was truly a pleasure to bring your thoughtful details to life for a celebration your guests absolutely loved and were reluctant to leave!  Thank you and we wish you the very best!
