Liz and John met because she wanted to learn how to clean a fish. I love that. There’s something deeply “Colorado” about that story, and it says a lot about this couple. As you can see from their wedding design full of vintage touches (like their Art Deco cake) and vibrant colors (like their floral design full of pop from Lilli of Bella Calla!), Liz and John have an abundance of elegance and taste. That might seem to run counter to fish cleaning stories, but Liz is curious and John’s the outdoorsy (no-so) quiet type. She wanted to learn to clean a fish, he found her endearing, and the rest is history.
While their meeting might seem unlikely, their love for one another is undeniable. When you see how they look at one another, how John didn’t want to let Liz go long enough to take a few sunset photos alone, how they kiss with commitment- their love story seems foregone.
And because, just like life, every wedding must have some challenges, it rained. Oh, the rain- the rain, the rain, the rain, the rain. I love Colorado rain, I have a deep, romantic attachment to Colorado rain, but it’s becoming a real wrench in the works at every single wedding. This is the rain of my childhood, where you don’t plan anything in the summer between 3:30 and 6:30pm… which is when 90% of all weddings occur. Poor Liz and John got one good storm right before their ceremony, inserting a delay (because who wouldn’t want the view off the back of Boettcher Mansion for your ceremony?!?), then we thought it was all clear, set up tables outside… and then halfway through dinner it started again, making guests scramble indoors. If wedding rain is lucky, this will be the luckiest group of wedding folks we’ve seen in a long time!
Congrats again! We wish you all the luck in the world! -A&D
