When I arrived at the hotel you could feel the excitement in the air. Everyone was getting ready for Wes and Jennifer’s big day.

Jennifer and Wes’s wedding was at The Red Rocks on a beautiful, clear sunny fall day.

Their ceremony site was at the Trading Post, where they were surrounded by breath taking red rock formations.

Their ceremony was a traditional Christian ceremony.

Both couples are hearing impaired.  Their ceremony was very moving as they expressed their love for each other using sign language.

The reception was held in the Red Rock Room at The Red Rocks. The large rock formation in the room was stunning with several candles flickering across it.

When working with Jennifer and Wes they discussed how they wanted their decor to blend in with the natural beauty of Red Rock in the fall.  They chose the colors of chocolate and gold with an Aspen themed wedding.   Aspen leaf touches are throughout the decor.

Below are some of my favorite personal touches;

Dessert: The dessert was the big hit of the night. The guests could not stop talking about the delicious mini pies.  The mini pies were placed on a cupcake stand and were surrounded by Aspen leaves that I went out and picked that morning.
