Lauren & Kyle
July 3, 2010
Wedding Ceremony :: Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, Boulder, CO

Lauren and Kyle were such a sweet and fun couple to work with. They met in high school and continued to date afterwards. Kyle proposed at the Red Robin, a favorite date spot, and now the spot will live in infamy! How fun! It was such a pleasure working with Lauren and her Mom, Carla, to incorporate all of the details that were so meaningful to them. Gorgeous flowers, amazing food and wine, a fun band and a festive atmosphere at the elegant and chic Ritz Carlton Hotel Denver.

The bridal bouquet and all wedding flowers were designed by The Perfect Petal in a Denver based wedding florist.

Lauren & Kyle's wedding party consisted of ten of their closest friends - on each side!

The flower girls were super cute in their matching pick up dresses! They were the nieces of the bride.

Lighting in the foyer and ballroom were provided by the fabulous lighting techs at
the Ritz Carlton.

Nicole and Javier were married at Nicole's parents house, nestled up in the mountains outside of Boulder. Javier is from Argentina originally and family and friends travelled from there, as well as many other places around the world, to attend the wedding. Their ceremony and reception took place in front of a mountain lake vista, on the property where Nicole and her sister grew up. Following the ceremony guests mingled on the wrap around deck as hors d'ouevres were served by Savory Cuisines and classical flamenco guitar played in the background. Guests enjoyed dinner as the sun began to set over the mountains.

Wedding Ceremony & Reception :: Pastures of Plenty Farm
Photography by Story Lens Photography

Moneka and Wyatt are a super laid back couple and lovely to work with. Their idea of a perfect wedding was having friends and family together, incredible local food and simple decor. Their vision was realized at Pastures of Plenty farm on a July afternoon where their wedding ceremony took place. Although Moneka is part Indian, it was Wyatt and the groomsmen that wore traditional Indian outfits for the ceremony. And although their ceremony was mostly non denominational, Indian elements were woven in. Following their ceremony guests mingled at the farm and ate scrumptious appetizers, followed by a sit down dinner, made with local and fresh ingredients by Big Bang Catering.
