Wes and Jennifer’s Wedding
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 looked angelic in her wedding dress as she walked down the aisle to her soul mate, Wes.
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.
Their dog was a very cute flower girl.
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.
Favors: Jennifer’s mom made homemade chocolate leaf lollipops.
Guest Book: their guest book contained their engagement pictures and was placed on a Chocolate table runner with aspen leaves scattered around the table.
Escort Cards: Aspen leaves hanging on a little tree.
Card Holder: A friend made a card holder that looked like the bark of a aspen tree.
Flowers: The flowers were gorgeous by Parker Blooms and contained fall colors with a lot of texture.
