Ali and Rob. It was such a pleasure not only working with these two but also their incredible families. This is exactly how it should be when two families come together. All of the planning meetings and tastings were done with six people. Ali, Rob and both sets of parents. There was always so much joy and laughter. It was so fun to work with them. Rob’s father was actually given the honor of performing Ali and Rob’s ceremony. You don’t get much more family than that. On to the details! About an hour before ceremony time the clouds rolled in, the wind picked up and it started raining. Everyone remained relatively calm. The wind was really howling and at one point it was raining sideways so I was really proud of them. I love couples like Ali and Rob because they took it in stride and were ready for anything. In true Colorado fashion the weather passed and we started the ceremony right on time. After that slight hiccup, everything went great. Ladybird Poppy‘s floral arrangement added just the right amount of green to the Keystone Ranch’s eclectic wedding tables. Everything was gorgeous! After dinner, guests were moved into the tent where Mannequin The Band absolutely rocked it. If it wasn’t for Caroline Colvin Photography I wouldn’t be able to share these amazing memories! Thank you Ali and Rob for allowing me to be a part of your amazing day and help you plan your wedding!

We met Darienne and Charlie for coffee in Breckenridge and six months later they were married at Ten Mile Station. Darienne had an etheral beauty and a calm confidence about her and Charlie was the life of the party. The day was filled with laughs! Charlie is in the entertainment industry so he brought a DJ and emence from New York City and I have to say that I have never been SO entertained! Looking at Darienne and Charlie that day felt like you were watching two best friends embarking on a new adventure. I must say a highlight for me was when the officiant had forgotten to take the security tag off of his suit jacket. He absolutely owned It! Petal and Bean did an amazing job making the room pop with color and Meigan Canfield Photography captured every moment of the day!

If you’re reading this, then you’re probably having a hard time looking for the perfect groomsmen gifts. To help you out, here are some practical yet personalized groomsmen gifts your friends will love:
Personalized mugs with caricature
Add a splash of fun to the usual gift mug by having your groomsmen’s faces hand painted on it. These mugs are perfect for toasting during the rehearsal dinner or for holding alcohol on your stag party. You can easily find online sites that sell personalized mugs. Have them add your groomsmen’s name below the caricature or print your wedding date underneath.
Travel bags for the adventurous pal
If you’re having a destination wedding, why not give your guys a travel bag to mark the day? You can choose from a variety of sizes depending on the length of your event. You can find bags small enough for a weekend getaway or big enough for a week-long stay at the beach. Stylish travel bags are always welcome gifts for friends who are frequent travelers. They can also be versatile and be used for work or the gym
An organizer for the messy fellow
We all have that buddy who constantly loses their keys, pens, or watches. For your guy friend, this Dock ‘n Roll will help him organize his keys or phone so he’ll never have to fumble around looking for them. It also has multi-functional features with slots for his phone, key chain, and watches or bracelets. You can also give a tie organizer, for friends who have an abundance of ties. Now he can keep his room clean and keep his ties off the floor.
A pair of socks with fun and colorful designs will definitely add some pop to your groomsmen’s attire. They’re fun to wear and can be worn wherever he likes – be it at work, the gym, or even on your wedding day. Level up their style by giving them a funky pair of bifocal glasses. These funky accessories are the perfect mix of practicality and style.
Any well-groomed guy knows that keeping your beard trimmed or your face fuzz-free is a full-time job. This Barber in a Box set comes with a well-designed razor, sharpening stone, pair of scissors, and comb that are ready to use and easy to carry around. With this kit, friends can keep their beard, stubble, goatee, Vandyke or muttonchops always on point.
Giving your guy friends something practical doesn’t have to be boring. With these cool groomsmen gift ideas, your friends will be thanking YOU or wishing for another go at helping you walk down the aisle.
