With a stunning Colorado backdrop to their images, and a wedding venue with an almost 100-year old character filled room, there was barely any need for further decoration at Janet & Keith's wedding. These beautiful images by APRYL ANN capture the simple yet classic and romantic vibe of this stunning wedding. Wearing a gorgeous KATE MCDONALD wedding dress, Janet had her bridesmaids' also dress in white which gave the bridal party a fresh clean look.
These two also had the most adorable engagement shoot with their pups that we featured here last year.
HOW DID YOU MEET? Janet and Keith met when Keith was on leave from his first deployment. It was one of those "love at first sight" type things, but it would still be a few more years before their paths crossed again and life brought them together for good.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL: Keith took Janet out for a romantic dinner in one of her most favourite areas of Denver , Larimer Square, which is the city's oldest and most historic block. It's pretty dreamy at night, lit up with hundreds of bistro lights, and after dinner it made for the perfect setting to pop the question. Keith was a nervous wreck but pulled Janet into the street and got down on one knee. They're still not sure exactly what he said, but can agree the answer was yes!
TELL US ABOUT FINDING YOUR WEDDING DRESS: I (Janet) never really had that "aha!" moment depicted on TV, full of tears and jumping up and down with your bridal party, and it initially really bummed me out. Right when I let go of what I thought that moment would feel like though the stress lifted and I found my dress. I ended up deciding to buy it because it reflected my simple style and had pockets!
ANY DIY ELEMENTS? To incorporate our love for the outdoors and for Colorado, we gave guests wildflower seeds from the region to plant when they got home.
DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING FLOWERS: We tried to incorporate flowers wherever possible throughout the day. The hall was filled with classic arrangements of primarily white flowers to match the bridesmaid's dresses. The sweetheart table sat beneath flowers that hung over us as we ate. Mantels were adorned with baby's breath, greenery and lit candles that made for the perfect backdrop during the wedding ceremony.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE OUT TO A COUPLE PLANNING THEIR WEDDING? Remember that the day-of, no matter what happens it will be a perfect day because you'll be with the ones that love you most. If you keep that in mind, the planning will breeze by and you'll enjoy the process that much more.
MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT? The whole day was wonderful, but the ceremony was definitely our favourite part. It was very intimate yet informal and full of laughter from beginning to end.
