Vintage Glam Elopement

Back in September we were asked to join a team of completely amazing wedding vendors to create a gothic themed style shoot at the Highlands Ranch Mansion. Being a tad bit obsessed with the details we wanted to make sure that everything was perfect, Bri Bond, with Bri Bond Photography  had an incredible vision for this vintage style. Hand drawn calligraphy from Scrawled and Scripted on the invitations, place cards,  and completely enchanting potion labels.

Table top details, bejeweled skulls, potions, candles and vintage silver goblets were provided by the design team, while the live moss, greenery and florals were from the incredibly talented Marzeyeh from Arrangements with Marzeyeh.

We had so much fun shopping for the table linens with Julie at our local Chair Covers and Linens showroom. The swirling black linen on our guest table helped to create so much dimension to the tablescape, while layering the marble and velvet linens on the cake table created a truly one of a kind look.  Event Rents, provided these incredible gold Helix chairs, glossy black plates, brushed gold utensils and satin burgundy napkins.

Bri Bond has a secret talent for creating cheeseboards, who knew? One thing we did know is how ridiculously talented Chelsea at Cakes Elevated is. Not only was this cake perfectly gothic, it was delicious!!!

Continuing with the theme of romantic goth Abby created a textured hair style complete with braids, crimping and curls. Talk about talent!!! gss1

Our Friends at LUV Bridal Denver supplied this Roza Dress from Madi Lane, not only did it fit our romantic goth vibe but it would be gorgeous with just about any theme. This shape was so flattering on our model with its classic shape and flowing train. 721958-34896-l-ArU2Agu

Last but not least we are completely grateful to our bride and groom for being so completely photogenic and of course good looking:)

Jeribeth & Ian

Grey Skies Make For Beautiful Weddings

Jeri and Ian totally rocked their wedding, Ian in a classic grey suit and Jeri in this vintage Hollywood’esc satin dress, birdcage veil and soft updo.

 

 

 

For a couple that has travels the world, lived all over, including just blocks away from each other in Boston (without ever meeting), Dillon, Colorado holds a special place in their hearts. Before they said I do at the Lake Dillion Pavilion Jeri and Ian shared a connection to this beautiful location, this is the same spot that Ian proposed.

 

 

What better way that to start out your Colorado wedding than making your grand entrance from this awesome Coloradical van? Jeri walked down the aisle with her father to a smitten Ian, and best friend Natalia who served as officiant. Nathalia rocked her officiating duties and had the crowd eating out of her hand and laughing at all of her jokes. Have I mentioned how much I love Jeri’s dress? Sikorski-Rochstein-078

As a wedding planner I meet all sorts of awesome people, we consider ourselves so blessed to have met these two. Ian is a lawyer representing children of immigrants facing deportation and Jeri works as school teacher, serving in a community where her students are facing that same issue.

The mother of the bride is also a teacher and did all of the decor including these incredible woodsy centerpieces.

 

 

When you are surrounded by so much natural beauty you embrace it and that is exactly what they did and when your mother is in charge of decor you have to expect something personal, like a BRAT sign on your head table:)

 

 

Jeri and Ian are so adventurous and have traveled to and lived in some incredible places, that really came through in the guest list. These two are so incredible that their friends and family from all over the country and the world wouldn’t have missed the opportunity to share in their wedding joy. Friends from Ireland, South Africa, Dubai and even more exoic places like Oregon, were in attendance for their wedding weekend. That just shows how completely amazing these two are.

 

 

Jeribeth and Ian, thank you so much for letting us experience the incredible spirit of your relationship.
