We have been blessed with such an amazing fall, so far, here in Colorado so, though this Real Wedding took place in I’m breaking it out of the vault as the fall wedding of all fall weddings. The day was perfectly captured by Honeysuckle Photography who hail out of Portland, OR and yes, the landscape is really this magical! Meet Jenn and Dennis. Their choice of Colorado as a wedding location happened because it fell in the middle of their bicoastal families and most importantly, Jenn had dreamt of a wedding in a glowing gold aspen grove, which was found at Edwards’ Eaton Ranch where a 360 degree aspen grove sits at the top of the ranch, tucked back into the mountains.
Jenn and Dennis are one of the most brilliant and in love couples we have ever had the pleasure of working with. They met in Portland when they shared a lab bench and then ventured out to NYC where he became a pediatrician and she remained in medical school (hence the lab bench cake below). Being the creative and all around geniuses that they are, they planned a day that incorporated just the two of them. They went together to pick out her Monique Lhullier gown, made every decision together and even performed the ceremony themselves. A scenic yet steep incline from the base of the ranch to the aspen grove required the right footwear! Ballet flats were provided for those who daringly dawned their heels. When you get to the top of the hill, it is all worth it and purely magical, though!
Other ceremony wishes included a circular layout to incorporate the 360 degrees of the grove, as well as a nod to the cardinal directions. Crawford, their puppy, also played a big role in the wedding, bow tie and all! Once Jenn and Dennis were married, everyone headed back down the hill to enjoy the scenery for cocktails and lounge on vintage furniture. The reception was a mix of modern elegance with a slight rustic flare with vibrant red florals, a twig ceiling treatment and doggie treats for Crawford on each table. Guests enjoyed light jazz and got some fresh air at the outdoor fire pit, outfitted with s’mores and cozy blankets for the cold fall night. It was truly magical and no one deserves it more than these two! Jenn and Dennis, we hope all is well with you and baby Olive! All our best. xo
