Real Wedding From the bride: My husband and I have been together for over 7 years, we’re high school sweethearts and it seems the whole world has been waiting for us to finally be married. The famous reaction to our engagement was “It’s about time!” THE PLANNING The Durango Weddings Magazine was extremely helpful! My wedding would not have been what it was without the help of the Magazine. I found most of my vendors and loved reading about all the local weddings and the vendors they used. I wanted to get my hands on every issue! THE STYLE I knew I wanted lace and soft neutral colors, but I didn’t want our wedding to be too feminine so I added burlap and twine, and had the guys wear gray suits to give our day a more rustic feel. THE FIRST LOOK It almost didn’t happen, but I’m sure glad it did, that moment we shared seeing each other, getting all our nerves out and remembering what this day was all about was so precious and much needed. I remember the look on his face and sharing the emotions of joy, love and excitement together before we said “I do”. This was my favorite memory from that day.
