Steamboat Springs Wedding:
Danny, the groom, is in the Army (jumps out of perfectly good planes) and in July he married his sweet bride, Lauren with the help of some great vendors, family and friends at their wedding in Colorado. What a weekend of love!! This Steamboat Springs wedding included a traditional church ceremony, epic mountain views for photography and an outdoor ski resort venue for the reception.
The bride and groom did not want to see one another before the ceremony, so the elected to do a “first touch” instead. We set them up around the corner from one another in the hallway of the hotel where they were both getting ready. They were so sweet holding hands, and Lauren even decided to give Danny a kiss, so long as he PROMISED to keep his eyes closed!
The couple exchanged vows in a beautiful Catholic Church in the Springs. Danny wore his military blues and Lauren looked like a model in her stylish white dress. And the guns on that girl – seriously, her arms are drool-worthy. After the ceremony the couple and wedding party traveled to a few local spots for photos, including an old historic barn atop a hill and a lovely park along the creek. We then headed to their tented reception site at the bottom of the Steamboat Ski Resort.
They chose lots of local Colorado touches for their reception, including table names of some of their favorite mountain spots. Their guest favors were beer koozies with a mountain logo and the phrase “Love the Adventure!” This couple and their wedding embodied all of my favorite things – love and life that is joyful, distinct and authentic.
Please take a moment to thank Danny (and many of the guests) for his service to this Country of ours. He was deployed just 2 short weeks after the wedding.
