Rocky Mountain High

From Sweetly Paired: Kayla and Robb are a fabulous Colorado couple. They wanted a rustic, outdoorsy, Rocky Mountain venue, and a vintage – rustic – chic decor. They got everything they bargained for with Spruce Mountain Ranch‘s lovely barn-meets-ballroom feel, and Bella Calla Flowers‘s awesome vintage peach and blush florals.

A Military Recessional

The ceremony was outdoors…. at the working Spruce Mountain Ranch… at the gorgeous built-in arch. Bella Calla Flowers created a beautiful backdrop with fabric and flowers. The large bridal party was accompanied by 10 ‘saber guys’ who helped make the ceremony special by imparting military traditions into the recessional!

Dance Dance!

I would advise having a day-of coordinator. Originally, we weren’t going to get one, but our venue required it. Let me tell you, it was 100 percent worth it! She took care of everything the day of the wedding including coordination with all of the vendors on when they needed to arrive. I didn’t have to worry about anything the day of the wedding and was able to really enjoy the best day of my life.

Rooftop Glamour

From Elisabeth Carol Photography: Britan & Taylor said I do on the rooftop of 400 N Ervay. As a former pageant queen, Britan had a difficult time finding a dress. Luckily, Johnathan Kayne came to the rescue with a gorgeous custom gown and gold veil! Britan went above and beyond to make sure her wedding was extremely glamorous but made her guests feel at home with custom cocktails and Whataburger late night snacks (a Texas favorite)!

Planning Your Day

From the bride: If you want something done right – do it yourself. I created my own excel spreadsheets and diagrams which identified where each item was to be placed and broke down the timeline for bride, groom, wedding party, family, and each vendor. This was incredibly helpful when things of course did not go as planned on the wedding day, and my rockstar bridesmaids helped me by stepping in to execute.

Vendor Contract Advice

Read your contracts before signing them – 90% of brides and grooms just skim or go straight to a signature. You are making a huge investment in a single day, so reach out to an attorney to protect yourself, and do not feel rude negotiating your contracts.
