Kyra & Nathan | May 25th | Durango, Colorado
From the bride:
Our theme was basically stuff we like. We just wanted the day to be relaxing and intimate. Everything we chose fell in line with that idea.

We either hand crafted our details or ordered them handmade by artists. That made our special day completely unique to us. We have custom bunting burlap banners, invitations designed by a bridesmaid, hand sewn burlap runners, cheese plates that were wood burned with the our initials and wedding date, a custom cocktail, and an interactive guestbook.
We decided to do a “first look,” so we were able to spend a private, intimate moment together before the wedding began.
We wrote our own vows, so the ceremony was completely tailored to our personalities and style.
We had a relaxed reception. We served artisan cheese with wine and beer pairings, as well as our signature cocktail (lavender infused vodka lemonade).
Our centerpieces were old-fashion milk bottles filled with whimsical baby’s breath.
Our first dance was to “You and I” by Ingrid Michelson.
My advice: Stick to your budget! Everyone kept telling us that there was no way we could ever have a wedding for less than $10,000, but we did and it was fantastic. We were able to have a beautiful wedding without bankrupting ourselves or our parents. Don’t worry about offending anyone by excluding certain traditions, like favors. We didn’t have favors and not one person noticed.
Our gateway vehicle was a race series Corvette my dad rebuilt.
