We heart this Bride for so many, many reasons. One – for her impossibly gorgeous dress. Two – for the fact that above all else, she wanted to be married near the ones she loved. So, from Australia to Colorado, she flew with her Hubby-to-be in tow for an effortlessly chic garden wedding at the Denver Botanical Gardens. And Three – the girl’s got some crazy good style and when she teamed up with By Design Event Decor, the rest is is a little piece of gorgeous history captured by Lindsay Carole Photography. See it all here!
And before you get lost in all the pretty details that the gallery has to offer, take a look at this film shot by Geoff and Justin of Born Madd. It’s the perfect way to end the day, the week, the month. Basically, it’s perfect and you should watch it right this second…
From the bride… The day Dan asked me to marry him it was the easiest decision in the world. Once I began to plan the wedding, it all quickly became some of the hardest decisions to make. My fiance and I live in Australia, and we were planning a wedding for the other side of the world in Denver, Colorado. We decided on Denver because it was closer to home for me, so I was able to ensure all of my family would be able to come. Since I live in Australia and only get to see my family nearly every two years, it was the only thing I knew I needed to make my wedding day that much more special.
Once we had decided on the Denver Botanical Gardens, all the work went into finding the vendors on the ground to help me make it happen. We were very blessed to find so many talented and helpful people who made planning the wedding not only enjoyable, but also very relaxing. Everything was coordinated by email and short phone calls in between, even the food and decorations! It was so nice to have so many people on our team who are so good at what they do that you could trust them. We couldn’t taste test the food, so we just had to take the word of our caterer and we are so glad we did — the food was amazing! At the end of the day, the only thing I really cared about was being able to marry my best friend and have our families with us for that moment, so I knew it would all work out in the end.
On the day of the wedding everything went so smoothly. I was able to get ready relaxed and laughing with my sisters and my mom. My new sister-in-law did my hair so beautifully for me and we all had so much fun together while sipping champagne. For my something borrowed and something blue, my beautiful mother lent me her amazing blue sapphire ring and it was perfect! I am very close to my mom, so it meant everything to me to have her by my side the whole day. When I finally got to the gardens before the wedding, seeing how beautifully everything actually did come together just took my breath away! I couldn’t believe it looked exactly how I had envisioned it! It was such an enchanting sight, I felt like it was a dream. The gardens were a stunning scene to set the tone, but the combination of all of my designs and the decorations created the lighthearted mood I hoped to achieve. The centerpieces and flowers turned out amazing, and the decor was stunning! The whole day went off without a hitch, and it was so much fun to spend time with our families and all of our amazing nephews and nieces. Of course, the day went by so fast that we wish it could have lasted a little bit longer, but it was a day we will cherish for the rest of our lives. We are so grateful that we were able to have so many people be a part of our wedding.
