Modern and classy, Dana and Mike’s downtown Denver wedding was brimming full of amazing details. Newberry Brother’s floral design was maybe the greatest I’ve ever seen, and not only that but each little extra from the napkins folded into roses to the paper cut ketubah added to the lush, sumptuous decor (beautiful work, Walli!). Dana had all her ladies find their own dresses, which gave a wonderful variety of corals and textures. Dana and Mike both rocked the coral on their shoes as well; they managed to even find Tom’s and Nike’s with coral accents without having to special order anything. I fully support Team Groom in tennis shoes- there’s just nothing worse than rented footwear.
Colorado again decided to rain right when we had photos planned, but the lobby of The Pinnacle Club gave us some great greys and modern architecture to play with. We even managed to sneak our with the couple for 15 minutes of cocktail hour to get some golden light after the rains. I love how relaxed they look after all the big stuff is over, and how lovingly they look at each other. Dana and Mike were just so sweet and so go-with-the-flow of the day and the weather- they were more than up for any and all creative problem solving that needed to occur.
My favorite memory of their day though was of Dana’s grandparents and their close family ties. It was clear at the rehearsal dinner that family is very important to this couple, and that Dana’s family in particular is very close. You could see the special relationship she and Mike share with her grandparents, and I just loved how despite any challenges they both lived it up and had a great time at the reception. Her grandfather gave her grandmother the biggest kiss when they ended the anniversary dance as the longest married couple.
May we all be so lucky.
Congratulations again you guys, we are so lucky to have you as our clients! -A&D
