jodi + drew, part 1

After a little over a year, I am so excited to finally post my own wedding on Tutto Bella! I hope you enjoy :-)

I met the man of my dreams when I was only 15. Exactly six years after he asked me to be his girlfriend, he asked me to be his wife.

We tied the knot on September 3, 2011 in front of 220 of our closest friends and family at Holy Ghost Catholic Church in downtown Denver.

 Lanterns lined the aisle in one of Denver’s most beautiful and oldest churches.

I was so in love with our programs. Stephanie from HuberArt on Etsy sketched the church where we were getting married, and Tutto Bella’s own, Jenna, owner of Fleur de Lis, a paperie, created this one-of-a-kind program. It was perfectly classic and timeless.

For my ‘something blue’, my mom had a rosary custom made in sapphire, my birthstone. It was so beautiful, and I loved how Cori attached it to my bouquet.

My nephew, Jameson, pulled my niece, Gabriella, down the aisle in a rustic wood wagon with a sign on the back saying, “here comes the bride”. They captured everyone’s attention with their sweet and innocent smiles before my dad and I walked down.

DIY burlap bags were handed out to each guest after leaving the church. Inside each bag contained “The Perfect Mix” of butterscotch trail mix (our favorite!), “Happy Trails” direction cards to the reception venue and custom photo water bottle labels.

I was at a total loss for words when I saw my bouquet for the first time. It was exactly how I envisioned it and more. The intricate detail that Cori put into creating it for me was absolutely amazing! Thank you, Cori, for making the bouquet of my dreams!

{stay tuned for jodi + drew part 2 tomorrow!}

    Oh my goodness! Such a beautiful day captured. I totally welled up on the photo of the handsome groom losing it when you’re coming down the aisle. That photo says more than words could ever say.
