As we can attest, being an entrepreneur is tough. It takes dedication and sacrifice - which many times leaves an owner "married" to their work. Luckily, there are things like business networking events that can align these hard-working spirits with like-minded people and create a new love. Such was the fairy tale that started Audrey and Rich on their road to a whimsical evening of love at Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield Farms; complete with whispering grasses, twinkling lights, and well...fairies.
They wanted "low-key and fun" and it was delivered. The personal touches, like the white stones along the ceremony aisle handwritten with words, in English and Spanish, reminding of the cornerstones of a strong relationship, set the tone for this family-centered celebration. The Bride and her family hand crafted centerpieces for each guest table - large white lanterns with live succulents and moss, butterflies, and the tiniest lights - the perfect little fairy house. With soft periwinkle and lilac hues, guests enjoyed dinner under the tent at Green Farm Barn with a stunning view of the sunset behind the foothills.
The party was full of love and excitement under the lights on the patio and the DJ kept the dance floor full til the end. The couple were whisked away in her father's vintage Rolls Royce at the end of their perfect party.

Brandon and Sara met as a lot of today's college students might meet - on Tinder. In fact, it only took Sara being on the app for six hours to get stopped by Brandon's handsome grin. After a whirlwind first week getting to know each other, Brandon was preparing to commission to the Air Force and be whisked away as quickly as he appeared. They committed to making it work long distance and the determination they both bring to their passions was brought to their new relationships. And it worked.
After a carefully orchestrated surprise proposal (it took planes, trains, and automobiles to bring it together!), the nursing student and future fighter pilot planned a short engagement and began planning their destination wedding to Colorado. Crooked Willow Farms set the stage for a beautiful garden party ceremony and cocktail hour followed by dinner and dancing in the barn. Thoughtful hand-made touches by Brandon's mom brought all the elements together. Aviators in hand, this bridal party knew they wanted to make lasting memories for the couple before being shipped to Japan - and boy, did they ever.
