SCE Real Wedding

If ever two were one, then surely we. If ever man were loved by wife, then thee. ~Anne Bradstreet
I have been holding off on posting this wedding because I wanted to add some of the photographers images to this. So, here goes nothing!

Katy and Bryan were married on July 25, 2009. They had their ceremony at Monet's Place at the Hudson Gardens and the reception at the Space Gallery. The used black and green as their primary colors with little bits of damask. Katy was ALL about the details and it definitely showed. There was not one thing that was forgotten by Katy and Bryan. She even made me a wedding day bag with all sorts of goodies...I love her! It was perfect and I ate the goodies for the next wedding too!

The ceremony was about 30 minutes and it did rain just a little bit (what is up with Colorado weather this summer?!), but they didn't let it both them. During the ceremony, they had two rose ceremonies for their parents - one before they exchanged vows and one after. They also had their father's read excerpts about marriage - it was awesome! At the ceremony, they had drinks, fans and programs set out of all of the guests. They also had a pedicab take people down to the ceremony area from the parking lot. The bride's mother also made 2 arrangements for the ceremony area, talk about beautiful! They matched so well and really blended well with the surrounding area and other flowers.

After the ceremony, guests made their way to the Space Gallery. They had a cocktail hour first with lots of yummy looking appetizers! The caterers did an amazing job setting up the place, when I arrived it was looking great. Katy and Bryan had special lighting done and it really brought everything together. For dinner, they opted to have stations for food instead of a buffet or plated meal. They had a salad station, an asian station and a taco station. The guests loved it. For a favor, they had a candy buffet with all sorts of goodies and of course in their colors as well. Katy...she was all about the details!!

At the end of the reception, they had a sparkler exit. We had to wait just a little bit for the rain to let up (we didn't think we were going to be able to do it at all). But the rain lightened quite a bit and we took the opportunity and I am glad we did. The guests may have gotten a little wet but it was worth it! The pictures are awesome!

Katy and Bryan ~ Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your speical day. You are two of the sweetest people I have met and I'm honored to have spent time with your families and celebrated your love. Both of your families are so kind and they were a joy to be around. Love radiates from the two of you and it is infectious - the whole day was filled with it and you could almost feel it. I know you will have many, many years of happiness and love together. Iwish you the very best! ~Danielle
