It seems fitting to look at photos with a splash of green with St. Patrick’s Day approaching. And, it doesn’t hurt that this wedding has a handsome groom and stunning bride, too.
Jenna had the honor to work with this couple, and their wonderful families on their wedding invitations. They created a gorgeous large, black linen custom-made square pocket, with the invitation on shimmery white stock attached with a custom flourish design in black and bright green, and the details cards inserted into the pocket on the back side of the invitation. The invitation style was in line with the tone for the wedding day: unique, exciting, and contemporary but with an underlying elegance and tradition.
Here is the love story in the words of the bride:
Our love story begins about 6 years ago. It began at a Chili’s restaurant where John and my older brother bartended, which I would frequent to try and get his attention. After 3 years of being friends … when the time was right we began to officially date. We would go on motorcycle rides, go up to Aspen to our family cabin, and spent countless nights with friends around the fire-pit. We shared so many laughs and memories over that next year that we will never forget. I kept hinting that a ring would be nice sometime soon and his response every time was “it will come soon.” I waited and waited, waiting impatiently for that magical day where he would propose. On a freezing cold February day, he suggested that we take a motorcycle ride up to Red Rocks. I was hesitate at first because who goes on a motorcycle when it is freezing outside, but it was something that we both loved to do so I got all layered up. When we got to one of the parking lots he said he had to go to the restroom and would be right back. Instead of waiting for him in the parking lot I decided to walk up to one of the scenic overlooks, where he came up to meet me. As I turned around from looking at beautiful downtown Denver, he was down on one knee with the most gorgeous ring I had ever seen. He was nervous but the words “will you marry me?” came out and the tears started flowing. I couldn’t say ‘YES!” fast enough. He hands were shaky but he put the ring on my finger we shared the best hug and kiss. We were both freezing but all that went away because excitement was the only feeling we had.
Over the next year we planned a wedding that we thought would be absolutely perfect. The theme of our wedding was classic and traditional with a pop of bright green and a day where we could share our love with all our friends and family. On June 7, 2014 the two of us became one in front of 240 of our closest family and friends, it was perfect!
