From the bride: We wanted our wedding day to be laid back and fun for all.

 We held our ceremony outside facing the beautiful La Plata Mountains.

 The photo booth by Shutterfreek was a huge hit. We all loved it and the pictures afterward were so fun.

 Looking back, I would have started the wedding a little earlier to give ourselves more time.

My advice: Don’t get too tied up in planning that you forget to enjoy it. Don’t expect everything to go perfect. Decide what parts are most important to you and focus on that and relax on the rest.

 Kari’s RECOMMENDED VENDORS

Photographer, Video + Photo booth: SHUTTERFREEK {more info}.  They did an amazing job on the pictures. The photo booth was so much fun and they were helpful the whole way through the wedding. Katie was like having a friend with me and I had just met her. She also helped me with a timeline of when we should do things like the first dance and bouquet toss. And they were all so nice to everyone. A complete joy to share our day with.

Cake: Sweet Cakes Bakery. The cake was one of the best cakes I have ever tasted. Our quests went on and on about how good it was. Ilene also made us chocolate covered strawberries that were very tasty. She also had great customer service and went above and beyond to make our day great. Highly recommended.

Hair & Makeup: La Roux Salon. Very professional and so much fun. They were such a blast to have around and we looked great.
