2017 Durango Wedding Expo

Thank you to all who attended the 16th annual Durango Wedding Expo. It was a fun afternoon filled with smiles, laughter, and lots of oohs and aahs. A special thank you to Lilia Floral Design, April’s Garden and Durango Party Rental for creating this year’s stunning inspiration lane, our favorite to date.  We hope you had the opportunity to attend the great planning workshops from Dale Garland of Aiko Aiko Sound, Colleen Clausen of Lilia Floral Design, Emily Spencer with the Strater Hotel, and Kyla Jenkinson of Photo Divine.  We are already planning the next show on January 13, 2018.  In the meantime, enjoy all the pretty images from IlluminArts.

Romance at Ridgewood

From the bride, Paige:
Carl grew up in Durango, I grew up in Tucson, AZ and we both went to school in Seattle. Seattle was very far away for most family and guests, Tucson is WAY too hot in the summer, so we chose Durango for our wedding!

A Romantic wedding at Ridgewood, Durangoshutterfreek0102 shutterfreek0103The ceremony was held on the lawn at Ridgewood Event Center at 4pm. It was a perfect sunny day. Carl and I wrote our own vows and read them to each other and we served each other communion as our first act as a married couple. We then served communion to our wedding party and had a few friends serve it to the rest of our guests. One of our good friends and one of Carl’s cousins read scripture for us. My aunt played the harp during the processional – “Can’t Help Falling In Love” and “Marry Me” by Train.

Our gift table included wooden pallets containing all kinds of local produce, jams, jellies, succulents, herbs and flower seeds that guests could fill up paper bags with.

RECOMMENDED VENDORS

Venue & Flowers: Ridgewood Event Center  {more info} was the perfect venue for us. The beautiful outdoor location with fantastic views and charming gardens was just what we wanted and represented so much of what we love. Joan Alford’s coordinating services were a great option for us – we couldn’t have planned an out-of-state wedding without her!

Photographer: Shutterfreek {more info}.  AMAZING! They had exactly the style we wanted at an incredible price.

Bouquets & boutonnieres: April’s Garden

Honeymoon Location: Red Frog Beach Resort in Panama – a beautiful, relaxing, private location with amazing beaches and plenty of fun activities.
