Our inspiration came from our passions and priorities as a couple.  We truly connect with the land around us, and wanted to honor and compliment its natural beauty.  We also really love craft brewing, which made the beer pairing dinner a no brainer. During our vows the sky began to crackle with thunder and the sky shared raindrops of love upon us and all of our guests.  It was perfect.  To be fair, we warned everyone that mountain weather can change at any moment… sure enough Mother Earth didn’t disappoint.

Be true to yourselves and enjoy the process.  The details matter so much.  Take time to personally craft the language of your ceremony so it is an accurate reflection of your relationship and each individual’s journey. Also, hiring a good coordinator takes a lot of pressure off the bride, groom, and families.  Worth it!  You’ll also want to go with Jake and Christin Willis with We Heart Photography to do your photos.  They’re the best. Be sure to involve and include all ages of your guests at the reception.  For example, don’t jump strait into hip hop.  Represent some classic rock at first to bring everyone together. Champagne during the ceremony really helps loosen people up. Try something different, unique.  Have fun with the celebration.  Remember, people are there for you.
