We were absolutely in love with this wedding from start to finish. An incredible couple and family and spectacular celebration!
The amazing three venue wedding started out at Audrey’s family ranch in Berthoud, Colorado. A romantic ceremony tent was created for the “I Do’s”. After the beautiful ceremony, the guests enjoyed cocktails around the pool as a string quartet played. The guests were then shuttled into Boulder to the gorgeous St Julien Hotel, where another amazing tent was created for the reception dinner. When dining and cake cutting concluded the guests walked a short distance into the hotel, where the ballroom had been transformed into a chic lounge for dancing. The “Crazy Love Lounge” was named after Audrey & Troy’s first dance song. This was truly a stunning event that we were honored to be a part of. Happy Anniversary Audrey & Troy!
From the bride…..
My husband and I are high school sweethearts and have dreamed of saying “I Do” for as long as I can remember. We both grew up in the same town and spent many years of our relationship around our close friends and family, and we couldn’t have imagined it any other way! Flash forward almost 6 years later and Troy was knocking on my parents door, engagement ring in hand, to ask my father for my hand in marriage.
When it came time to plan our wedding, we knew we wanted it to be a celebration that our family and friends would remember forever. Our first quest in planning our dream wedding was choosing the right venue. After flipping through countless magazines and websites, my dad presented the idea of having the wedding at our home- a 300 acre ranch nestled in the quant town of Berthoud, Colorado. Troy and I instantly fell in love with the idea! Troy asked me to be his girlfriend in the front driveway of my home, and we were thrilled at the thought of creating our first memories as husband and wife there.
Once we chose the venue, we knew we needed a team of professionals to make our vision of a fairytale wedding come to life. We were so blessed to have met our wedding coordinator, Kathy Vaughan, of A Beautiful Memory and the amazing vendors she works with. Kathy was a dream come true. She knew exactly what we wanted to make our fairytale wedding come to life-- and exceeded our wildest expectations!!
My favorite aspect of planning the wedding was designing three unique locations for the ceremony, reception, and dancing. We began the evening with a romantic ceremony at my home. Pale pinks and cream roses transformed our backyard into the most breathtaking ceremony I have ever seen. Exchanging our wedding vows in front of family and friends at my home was a dream come true in itself. Pair that with an aisle covered in fresh rose petals, a live string quartet, and an alter draped in thousands of fresh roses, and we were living in a fairytale.
After the ceremony, our guests were shuttled to the St Julien Hotel in Boulder to kick off the second round of celebrations. We wanted to bring in dramatic red accents and rich tones to the reception tent to reflect the love Troy and I share with our family and friends. It was important to us that the reception was a place for our guests to truly enjoy themselves and celebrate with one another.
After dinner, our guests were led into our third and final location- the “Crazy Love” lounge. Troy and I danced to our first song, “Crazy Love” by Van Morrison, that was played to perfection by our band, Tunisia. Our guests loved the energy of the live band, and even got to mix it up with top 40 songs from the dj. I loved the ambiance in this room- I truly felt like we were in a chic club, dancing the night away with friends and family!
Our wedding was magical and we feel so blessed to have worked with such an incredible team of vendors. We cherished each and every aspect of our wedding and couldn’t have imagined spending our first day as husband and wife any other way!
