Denver Fourth of July Wedding
Aubrey and Leif’s grew up in the same small town in Nebraska, but never met one another. Coincidentally, Aubrey’s dad was Leif’s football coach, so they had heard of one another, but didn’t start talking until they connected on Facebook a few years ago. The groom was drawn to her images online of Colorado and wanted to bring his kids to come hiking and explorer. They soon realized they had much in common.
Despite their small town upbringings, the bride is a total city girl. They combined their interests and ideas to create a unique personalized rooftop wedding, combining urban feel and warm family appeal. Their summer wedding incorporated July 4th fireworks, hamburgers and ice cream and craft cocktails, all their warm weather favorites.

The groom’s children were part of the ceremony and the couple tried to add items that would include their participation and honor their beginning as a new family unit. The groom’s 5 yr old declared that he wanted to be a “Knight” after getting edged out of ring bearer spot by his older brother, so they “knighted” him, complete with costume and sword. The rings were carried in a hollowed out geode because Leif’s 10 yr old son liked to collect them.
“Don’t compromise on the things that are most important to you but know that not everything has to be as expensive as it seems. If you think outside the box and are willing to choose some non-traditional routes, not only will you have a more personalized wedding, you’ll be able to breath easy when it’s all said and done knowing you won’t be paying off your wedding like a second student loan!” – From the Bride
