LOOKING BACK After being in 8 weddings myself, I knew that the small things may not go as planned, but as long as the overall day goes off fairly close to planned, I would be okay with the small hiccups (we forgot to bring all the beverages and the ambulance was called out twice). As it turned out, my vision for the perfect wedding day played out perfectly. ADVICE Create the feeling and vision for your wedding that reflects you both as a couple. Try not to set up false expectations by creating a vision for the pinterest perfect wedding.

My most memorable moment was our first dance! I think I cried most of the time.

FAVE VENDORS Caterer: Durangourmet (page 90). The food was GREAT. The staff was polite and fast at serving our guests. We received many compliments from our guests. Photographer: IlluminArts Photography (page 39). I really wanted someone who had more of a photojournalist approach and Drew fit that description. He was very easy to work with and captured all the details. We are beyond happy with our photos. Venue: Ridgewood Event Center (page 11).We really loved the venue because it gave us the rustic look we were looking for as well as the natural beauty of Colorado. We also chose it because of the bed and breakfast at Blue Lake Ranch, which allowed our many friends and family to enjoy a mini vacation over the weekend.
