M'dears, inspiration abounds in the timeless images from Studio JK Photography - every photo is chock full of the prettiest little details and joyous memories. Enjoy!
From the lovely bride...
The one and only thing both Sean & I had envisioned for our wedding was having it outdoors. Of course, we knew this was going to be near impossible to make happen in December. Little did we know our wedding weekend would have record breaking cold temperatures; thankfully we made the decision early to plan the festivities indoors. This is where our amazing wedding planners & my mom helped bring this vision together. My mom & I really wanted the decor to be elegant & festive with a touch of “rustic" to honor our (Sean & my) love of the outdoors. During the planning stage, my Mom said she wanted the room to be “magical,” which it most certainly was…from the candle lit ceremony, to the gorgeous flowers, the Christmas trees & the beautiful table settings it really could not have been more perfect.
Picking our favorite memory of the day is tough because the whole entire weekend was just fantastic. We had an absolute ball, loved every moment, and truly did not stress about a thing (a big thank you to JA Special Events for helping to make that possible). If I had to choose, I think one of our favorite moments was our first look. Sean & I really want get some photos outside so we had planned to meet up at Chautauqua Park. Little did we know how cold it would be, but we had fun regardless. It was great to have some time together to ourselves before the actual ceremony. Joe & Joyce from Studio JK were so fantastic and such troopers to endure the zero degree temperatures with us. We absolutely love the shots they got!
Sean & I met 3 years ago on eHarmony He had recently moved back to Boulder from California, and I was living in Denver. Funny enough we both attended CU Boulder for our undergraduate degrees, lived in the same dorm, and had never met each other. Thankfully our stars finally aligned! Sean surprised me with a trip, last June, to Laguna, CA. for my birthday . He had planned to propose on the beach at sunset, but was so excited that he decided he couldn’t wait…. and proposed on our first morning there over breakfast. What a memorable birthday it was!
