From the bride.. The theme for our wedding was outdoor rustic. I originally got the idea from several pictures I saw in the Durango Weddings Magazine. Jake and I love nature and the scenery and beauty of the mountains. We also felt like this theme would complement our wedding destination as well as highlight our passion for nature. Both the Durango Wedding Expo and the Durango Weddings Magazine gave me a lot of inspiration and ideas that I incorporated into our wedding. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the magazine and did so numerous times from â€œcover to coverâ€?! I felt like a Princess in my wedding dress. I dreamed about the day that I would get married as a little girl, and envisioned walking down the aisle in a big ballroom dress. My dreams came true and my fairy tale wedding followed. The dress that I picked was made by Allure Bridals with chiffon fabric. It was the very first one that I tried on. There were a lot of amazing dresses that followed, but that one made me feel more beautiful than I ever had before! It was perfect! My most favorite piece of jewelry was a safety pin that I wore on the inside of my dress. This was no ordinary safety pin. This pin has been worn by six generations of brides on the maternal side of my family and is over 150 years old. I felt very honored to be able to carry on the tradition. As soon as my granddaddy pronounced us husband and wife, we threw our locked hands up in the air as the crowd cheered. At that exact moment it started to hail! It was like our own built-in fireworks and it started our marriage off with a bang!
