Happy Wednesday!! It has been a while since I have done a Wedding Wednesday post. With our anniversary coming up this weekend, and lots of new friends, I thought this would be a good time to share ours (apologies for the 9,000 pictures, it is so hard for me to pick just a few).
September 20th, 2014 will forever be one of the best days of my life. Everything about it felt like a dream. The planning months prior - another story - but the day of our wedding was simply magical! This first year of marriage has also been incredible. Jonny and I have been together almost seven years and living together for five of them (yes, we are a little untraditional), but getting married has changed us and our relationship in so many ways that I never thought it could. People would tell us how different getting married was and I never believed them noting that there was not much else we could learn or know about each other. But it has been an absolutely amazing feeling truly becoming each other's family and knowing this is my person for life.
I wanted to share a few highlights from our wedding day, but have had trouble narrowing it down to just a couple so... I am going with the first 8ish things that come to mind: 1) Reciting our wedding vows 2) Walking around Vail Village with our gigantic wedding party for photos 3) Our hip hop first dance 4) More dancing... lots of dancing 5) Jonny rocking it out on the drums with the band 6) Riding the Turtle Bus/bar with the wedding party after the ceremony 7) Listening to our friends and family share stories about both of us 8) Mostly it was so amazing to have all of the people that we love and care about in one place at the same time laughing and having a fun weekend together!
I was a little hesitant to share our video as it is so personal, but I realized I share everything with you on a daily basis and this way you can learn a little more about me and the people in my life :).
The main reason I started Denver Darling was to be a resource for friends and family - to share the things I love with the people I love - which started with our amazing wedding vendors who made our day absolutely perfect. Each one of our vendors was incredible - (list below) I can tell you if you are getting married in Colorado that I highly recommend all of them. If I went into a detailed review about each one... this would be the world's longest post! A special thank you to our photographer, Laura Murray, and videographer, Larisa Graham, who both captured our day so perfectly!
