Amy and her mother knew exactly what they wanted for Amy’s wedding – it needed to be personal, it needed to be held in a very special place and everyone was to enjoy themselves. That is exactly how Amy and Mike’s wedding went. Amy has great a love for plants and animals – we covered the animals during their engagement session with Amy and Mike’s Hairless Rex cat named Mr. Mewton and the horse rescue facility Amy volunteers with. Now it was time to incorporate her love for plants into their wedding. Over the winter Amy had been lovingly growing flowers in the greenhouse at her parents place. Flowers that would become part of the ceremony location in her mom and dad’s backyard. Now… often when we’re told someone is having a backyard wedding we kind of cringe. Visions of swing sets and trash cans flash before our eyes. But Amy’s parents have the most amazingly beautiful place. Lush with plants I didn’t know you could grow in Colorado. Amy’s winter gardening paid off adding brilliant accents of color to the ceremony.
To make sure everyone enjoyed the day, Amy’s sister came all they way from Australia to sing for her sister and new brother-in-law, which was such a touching moment for their parents. Hand painted umbrellas were provided to keep everyone comfortable in the warm Colorado sun. But the best idea by far…. a barefoot bride and bridesmaids! No one killing themselves in heels – completely brilliant! After the ceremony everyone headed over to the Hotel Boulderado for a lovely dinner and an evening to remember.
