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!

We have had a pretty wet summer so far, here in the mountains. This can be a challenge when you have a wedding up two mountain gondolas to get to Timber Ridge in Keystone, Colorado. Jill and Gabe must have some great vibes on their side because the rain held off all evening and the resulted in an enchanting evening. I always love some clouds (no rain) on a wedding day because it just add something theatrical to the photos. You tell me. Aren’t these moments captured, amazing?! Thank you Matthew Photography the photos!
