Donna & David Lyons Colorado wedding steeped in tradition


Being a Colorado wedding planner has many perks. We are incredibly fortunate to meet and help a diversity of brides and grooms plan their Colorado wedding. One such couple is Donna & David. Engaging, inspiring and dedicated describe them both. It was such a pleasure getting to know them during their wedding planning process. We learned they came from very diverse backgrounds and seemed an unlikely pair, she being immersed in the Boulder Jewish Community, David a devote Christian and them each dedicated to their individual faith. 

During our first meeting Donna told me that she and David were featured in an article in Oprah Magazine in 2007 about why it is never to late to find true love. Reading the article provided even more insight into their relationship and why their decision to marry was that much more special. Donna & David are in their 50's and getting married for the first time. 

We helped create a wedding that truly reflected their vision and was central to who they are as a couple. An emphasis on spirituality, contemplation, connection with nature, and joy were some of the values Donna & David wanted to imprint on their wedding. They wanted to create a very sacred space around their ceremony and brought in both the Jewish and Christian tradition by marrying under the huppah, holding a Ketubah signing and bedecken, incorporating the Seven Blessings, drinking of the wine, Christian prayers and Jewish readings, breaking of the glass and more. Red Rock Haven, a private residence in Lyons, Colorado provided a stunning backdrop for both the ceremony & reception. The ceremony took place right on the St. Vrain River which added a special element to the ambiance.  Their happiness and love on their wedding day is evident in the images below.
