From the bride.. I thought I really wanted something big and classy, but when it came down to it, I’m just a small town Colorado girl at heart and that’s exactly what I wanted our wedding to be like. We only invited our closest friends and family – 16 guests and it made it really special and intimate for us. While my mom was helping me get ready, someone tripped with our rings in hand and my ring slipped through a crack in the deck! Amy, our photographer, ended up pulling it out with a flashlight and a coat hanger. She definitely saved the day! We really wanted to remember each person that took part in our special day. So, after the ceremony, we had our photographers take a picture of us with each of our guests and then one all-inclusive group shot. My Advice: Don’t stress too much, it always works out in the end. Even if it’s not a perfect wedding ceremony, you still get to marry your best friend at the end of the day and that’s all that matters.
It was absolutely beautiful outside for our afternoon ceremony!
Recommended Vendors Ceremony Site: Durango Mountain Resort (see inside cover). Beautiful location and easy to work with. Photographer: IlluminArts Photography (see page 5). We really couldn’t have asked for more beautiful pictures. We just loved Amy and Janna, they were so sweet and did such a wonderful job! IlluminArts was all around amazing to work with from beginning to end.
