Bernadette and Haydn's Wedding

Last weekend I have the pleasure of coordinating Bernadette and Haydn's wedding. We have been working together since last October and it could not have been more fun. At first they were going to do a big wedding with all the to do, but they opted to go for a smaller affair - something that was better suited to the two of them.

On Friday, we had the rehearsal. We had it at a park in downtown Colorado Springs. Of course, like all brides, Bernadette was running late (sorry B to bring it up). After everyone arrived, we got started right away. We were able to make it through without any casualties! After the rehearsal, we went to the rehearsal dinner at Sonterra's Grill. The meal was fantastic! After dinner, they handed out the gifts to the bridal party and the parents. Everyone who knows me, knows I cry at EVERYTHING! So it was no different when Haydn spoke about his parents, I don't think there was a dry eye in the room. After the speeches, the groom's parents brought a karaoke machine! Every table did a song and it was hilarious! What a great bunch of people! Seriously it was great!

Bernadette and Haydn's wedding was stunning. Her colors were pink and brown - she incorporated them into anything she could, including the cake. The ceremony was done by the groom's father and it added a personal touch. The reception was full of drinking and dancing. The signature drink was a Blushing Bride - it was a big hit! Overall, the wedding was fantastic and I had so much fun getting to know them over the last year! Congrats you two!

You can take a sneak peak at some of the pictures at Traci and Nic are wonderful photographers and so much fun to work with! If you don't have a photographer yet, check them out! Seriously...

They did a photo booth with props at the reception. Everyone got into it and it was a great idea to capture a picture of each of the guests! What a great idea!
