Best Decision

From the bride: Hiring a wedding planner was the best investment I’ve ever made. Luckily I found an amazing one in Ashley Gain, who also became my friend, but she helped me stay organized, focused and calm. It was so nice to have someone to go to who had all the answers.

Soak It All In

One of my favorite moment besides “I now pronounce you husband and wife” was per the advice of our wedding planner. She told us when we’re up in front of everyone to turn around and look at our guests. It was so cool to look at all of our friends and family who have been with us forever. Such an overwhelming feeling to have all those people there supporting us as we step into marriage together.

Enjoy Every Moment

Ashley told me this piece of advice and I’ve told it to everyone I know who’s gotten engaged; Remember after the wedding, you get to be married for the rest of your life. This helped me when I was super stressed about the little things like candles and center pieces. To bring myself back to earth during the whole wedding process and remember that I was marrying my love, made the process so much more enjoyable.

The First Dance

My second favorite moment was our first dance. We had one of our groomsman and Adam’s best friend sing it. It was such a wonderful moment that was super personal to us.

Rocky Mountain High

From Sweetly Paired: Kayla and Robb are a fabulous Colorado couple. They wanted a rustic, outdoorsy, Rocky Mountain venue, and a vintage – rustic – chic decor. They got everything they bargained for with Spruce Mountain Ranch‘s lovely barn-meets-ballroom feel, and Bella Calla Flowers‘s awesome vintage peach and blush florals.

A Military Recessional

The ceremony was outdoors…. at the working Spruce Mountain Ranch… at the gorgeous built-in arch. Bella Calla Flowers created a beautiful backdrop with fabric and flowers. The large bridal party was accompanied by 10 ‘saber guys’ who helped make the ceremony special by imparting military traditions into the recessional!

Dance Dance!

I would advise having a day-of coordinator. Originally, we weren’t going to get one, but our venue required it. Let me tell you, it was 100 percent worth it! She took care of everything the day of the wedding including coordination with all of the vendors on when they needed to arrive. I didn’t have to worry about anything the day of the wedding and was able to really enjoy the best day of my life.
