once upon a time...
check out the blog to see how this story ends!
Gillian and Brian are the kind of couple you meet and just know they are going to make it for the long haul. They met through their youth group and spent a few years trying to convince themselves that there was someone else better for them - they were wrong. Luckily those failed dating attempts led them to realize they needed to take the next step and actually go on a date - with each other.
Avid hikers, they watched the sunrise many times over different Colorado peaks. When Brian was ready to make this beauty his wife, he strategically planned a sunrise hike with a storybook ending. Watching the glow come around the Earth, he waited on his knee with a ring. What a perfect way to start your day! On the trek back down, some random hikers passed them on the trail and offered Gillian a balloon. All aglow from the proposal, it was a giddy surprise! As another group passed and handed her another balloon, and another, and another, she still hadn't quite figured it out. When they reached the bottom, both their families were waiting to celebrate - with matching balloons they had been sending up the mountain with willing participating strangers. There's even an amazing video to prove it.
Their winter wonderland celebration came in December was a masterpiece of planning, coordination, decor, and partying. With a complete transformation of Highlands Ranch Mansion into a sparkling white dream, the team from Firefly Events designed a true winter aesthetic. Funkiphino kept the dance floor full all night and it truly was an epic party.

In this day and age, it's hard to imagine that two young people growing up in the same town wouldn't find love until years and years had already passed. Kaitlin and Kyle met in 5th grade in their Texas town. But it wasn't until a trip home from their respective universities - Alabama and A&M - that the blonde beauty and the baseball player decided to finally take a swing at love...and hit a home run.
With an affinity for breakfast tacos, documentaries, being outside, and their puppy Rocky, the two finally found themselves ready to solidify themselves as an all-star team. Colorado called them to a destination wedding at the elegant Highlands Ranch Mansion and their vision did not disappoint. Beautiful blush, creams, and greens with a hint of Texas rustic-chic set the tone for this lovely fete. A full bridal party of 11 bridesmaids and 11 groomsmen showed how much love and support Kaitlin and Kyle have right from "I do" to forever.
As is summertime in the Rockies, you never know what weather will roll off the mountains. The morning was crisp and clear and then came the rain. Our beautiful bride stood in the window and watched as we reassured her it would all work out - and it did. We waited for the storm to roll over, wiped the chairs, and carried on just as the clouds parted. The sun shone down on the cross the groom made for the altar and lit the path for their happily ever after. From there it was tears of joy, clinking glasses, and a full dance floor well into the night - complete with party wigs brought in by the Father-of-the-Bride to keep the laughs rolling.
