  /  Denver   /  Romantic Elegance, A Hudson Gardens Wedding

0235

From the first meeting with Chelsie & Mike, we loved their style.  It wasn’t just the way Chelsie described her vision of a “classy romantic garden party with lots of candles” or the couple’s appreciation of really good food, or the sweet way Mike smiled at his fiance and encouraged her enthusiasm.  These endearing qualities came with a spark of spunk that elevated the elegant soiree, adding creative moments that delighted guests throughout the evening.   A huge thanks to one of our favorite photographers, Casey from Two-One Photography, both for sharing the beautiful images and for always being fun to work with!

Pedicabs whisked guests thru the verdant grounds of Hudson Gardens, past an idyllic pond to the sweeping grace of a grand willow tree.  Chelsea looked stunning as her dress brushed white rose petals and flickering candles down the aisle to join the handsomely dressed Mike under an arch draped in white fabric accented with mounds of hydrangea from Pink Posey Design.  Mike’s mom, Doris, officiated the wedding in her traditional South African attire.  Libations to the four directions of the earth, a unity drink ceremony, and “jumping the broom” made for a riveting exchange of vows.

RSVP cards asked for dessert flavor selection rather than the traditional list of entree choices and as the evening light faded around cocktail tables and swank white couches on the lawn, guests found their dessert of choice, a neatly packaged bundt cake (from Nothing Bundt Cakes) topped in a personalized golden aspen leaf (designed by Platypus Papers) at each place setting.

Over a hundred candles flickered and floated in the tented reception under ceiling strands of market lights from Elite Production.  More delicate lights shone softly behind a sheer layer of tulle as they glistened against a wall of glittering gold drape, the gorgeous backdrop to Chelsea & Mike’s head table.   On the dance floor side of the room, Mike & Chelsea kicked off dinner with a first dance inspired by Ed Shearan’s music video that showed off weeks of practice, choreography, and a hint of Chelsea’s competitive dance skills. And a stunning reception gown.

Around the room, stations of sushi in mini cones, colorful rolls, and savory dishes, a tenderloin carving table, and a gourmet mac and cheese bar from Footers Catering fully met the foodie expectations and a gold curtained photobooth from Two One Photography kept guests entertained between dancing and bundt cake revelry until midnight.

This was truly a stylish soiree, elevated by meaningful creative touches and truly a wedding we were delighted to be part of!
