WEDDINGS


Evergreen Lake Wedding Ceremony, Evergreen, Colorado


Evergreen Lake was a beautiful backdrop for Val and Jason’s wedding ceremony in June.  Such a fun couple and a lovely morning for their wedding!  We included a “spice ceremony” to symbolize their new life together, because this couple loves to cook.

Summer Weddings Around Colorado

Many couples choose to get married outdoors in beautiful Colorado.  Some settings are on property special to the bride or groom’s family, and some are in spectacular settings in the mountains.

 

Tapestry House Wedding, LaPorte, Colorado

It was a beautiful summer wedding at The Tapestry House for Jennifer and Thomas.  Their ceremony included their love story plus sand and shells from their favorite beaches.  Photos:  Picture This Colorado.

 

Summer Wedding at Arrowhead Golf Club in Littleton

It was a beautiful evening in early summer.  I don’t always get a photo of the mother of the bride with her daughter, but I did here.  Charming!  The unity ceremony included a symbolic hearth — a symbol of a home with a warm center.  Everyone was happy, and the setting was stunning.  I used this to advantage in opening the ceremony: “Where the plains kiss the mountains, and all is ready for the flowering of the hills…landscape and season join us in celebrating a happy union.”

Wedding at Cheyenne Mountain Resort

Cherokee Ranch & Castle

A very formal wedding at a beautiful location, with the ceremony inside the great hall.  The ceremony included the couple’s love story, and let guests raise prayer flags with their wishes for the couple.  Photos:  Diana Sabreen  (www.dianasabreen.com)

A Handfasting

For a couple that chose to elope and have a very private wedding out of the country, I wrote a simple but beautiful handfasting ceremony near their home when they returned.  They made the handfasting cord themselves and told me that they felt the ceremony was very meaningful.
