Julie and Tyler. Such amazing people! We did a ‘Day of’ plan for them at the Keystone Ranch in Keystone Colorado and man, I wish we had been working together from the beginning. Being around these two for about 5 days just wasn’t enough!
Like so many weddings this past summer, we had the rain to contend with. I had been diligently watching the weather satellite from the moment I arrived at the Keystone Ranch. Thankfully they have an amazing system because they need to keep their golfers safe from lightning. After much time going back and forth about whether or not to go outside for the ceremony, I looked at Julie and asked her when you look back, would you be happier wet and outside or dry and inside. We have a window of time that might stay dry if we go now. She said, “let’s go outside!” That second the Keystone Ranch staff ran outside with their towels, dried chairs and we started the ceremony. We had gotten through the entire processional and I had just sent down Julie and her dad. Of course, it started raining. At that point, there was no turning back. So Julie did what makes any wedding planner proud, she kicked off her shoes and headed towards her awaiting groom. I’m so happy she made the decision to go outside because at the end of her wedding she came up to me and said “you know what my favorite part of today was? Getting married in the rain” Urg! I still get chills thinking about it and writing about it now. It goes down as one of my favorite wedding moments. And those photos! You can’t get clouds like that without a little rain 🙂 Thank you Dylan at Dylan Crossley Photo for the jaw dropping photos!

Ellen and Greg. These two were married last September and as luck would have it, it snowed the night before so not only did they get the gorgeous yellow Aspens but they also got snow on the mountains in the background! It was so beautiful! It was a little chilly but guests stayed warm in their blanket that doubled as a wedding favor. One of my favorite moments of this wedding was that Greg’s father doubled as the officiant. There was so much love and emotion. Greg even gave his dad a hug to help him through the ceremony. After the ceremony guests filed into Ten Mile Station for the cocktail hour and then the reception. Bloom Flower Shop did all of the elegant floral arrangements. Courtney of Hampton Entertainment kept the dance floor packed all night with one hit after another. Thank you to Tim of Timothy Faust Photography for capturing the wonderful wedding day!

From the beginning that I started working with Julie and Sam for their Timber Ridge wedding, Lexi Waffles was taken into consideration. What Kind of flowers she would have in her hair. Where her place would be in the processional. How she would get dinner. Who is Lexi Waffles? Well that’s their puppy of course! I didn’t have the opportunity to meet Lexi Waffles until the rehearsal. Let me tell you, she lived up to the hype 🙂 She’s so sweet! And how cute is that name?! It actually inspired Johnna to name her puppy Deacon Biscuits. Ha! On to the details!
I’m not too keen when it comes to surprises for the bride or groom. It seems that everyone likes to do this but I’m always hesitant. So when Sam’s mother asked me to help with a choreographed dance they had planned to perform after dinner, I was a little nervous. After we talked more, it made so much sense and I couldn’t wait for the day for it to happen and I could see all this hard work (and sneakiness) come together. One family is from New York and the other is from Boston. So they had a dueling dance. It was amazing and Julie and Sam loved it. Phew 🙂 A Great Time DJ did a great job with keeping this a secret and making sure everything went off without a hitch.
Ladybird Poppy Floral Design provided the amazing flowers. (Including a leash floral arrangement for Lexi Waffles, of course). A huge thank you to Matthew Speck Photography for sharing these amazing photos! Thank you Sam and Julie for asking me to be your wedding planner!
