This couple? They are beyond fabulous. Fabulous in the sense that their wedding was themed around their favorite brews and hosted at Two Brothers Brewing Co (they even brewed their very own for their guests to enjoy). How can you not love this couple for that? I definitely have a little couple crush. It has a little to do with all their personal touches they put into this party, and everything to do with how adorable they are. See every last bit from Aaron Ottis Photography right here.
From the Bride… Matt and I share a love of good beer, so even before we got engaged Matt knew he wanted our wedding to be at Two Brothers Roundhouse in Aurora. Also, the venue’s fireplaces, exposed wood beams, and giant tapestry of bears fit our woodsy aesthetic.
He proposed to me in January, and we were set on a fall wedding, so we worked hard crafting and planning with friends and family to get everything done on time. My Pinterest addiction was in full-swing at that point, so many of the DIY elements (coaster favors, wishing tree guest book) were inspired by projects I had pinned there. I tasked my bridesmaids (and bridesman) to help me poof out tissue paper puffs, my father-in-law hollowed out a log for our card box, and my brother-in law painted slices of wood for table numbers.
My favorite project was Wedded Bliss, a saison-style beer Matt brewed out of herbs I grew that summer in my garden. We served it at our reception and gave wax-sealed bombers to special guests at the wedding.
All of our vendors, friends, and family helped make everything run perfectly so we were able to enjoy the experience as it happened. While everything went by so quickly that it was a whirlwind, the feeling of elation from that night will never leave me.
