Allison + Jordan
These two adventurous and free spirited lovers wanted their event to feel warm, personal and be a rockin’ party even with 200 attendees. Most guests were from out of state so it was crucial that everyone felt well attended to. So, we added several personal & handmade details for that extra step of thoughtfulness throughout the event.
As guests arrived, they traveled down a path by the custom welcome sign to the ceremony site. A custom Monogram designed by Jessie Zweibel was the perfect touch of modern romance. The monogram was included on their welcome sign, ceremony programs, koozies, travel tumbler favors.
Allison’s bouquet was tied off in neutral corduroy ribbon referencing Jordan’s favorite pants that he wore often throughout their years of dating as a symbol of him for her to carry throughout the day. Jordan monogrammed their date on the inside of his suit jacket to do the same.
The forecast called for a hot day, so our team prepared scented spa towelettes, chilled and served on ice for guests to cool off with.
When we first met with Allison, we knew that sunflowers, had to be represented in all the florals. It was equally important to show Allison and Jordan’s love for the outdoors + Colorado Mountains. So, we approached Emma Lea Floral to collaborate, I knew she was the gal to trust with such a modern and elegant twist. Emma Lea Floral sourced the sunflowers locally + we can’t help but see August roadside blooms and think of this day.
I carefully curated a custom fiber piece with Allison, Jordan and the space in mind. We hand-dyed a gradient of golden sunflower hues to reflect the silhouette of the Rock Mountain range where they said their “I Do’s!“ After the ceremony, we repurposed this piece in the reception. But now, it’s hanging in Allison and Jordan’s cozy home.
During the ceremony, they opted out of a traditional unity ceremony to plant an aspen tree on the venue’s property to revisit for years to come.
See those little flowers in her drink? Yup. Those are edible & the perfect touch to Allison’s signature cocktail. We couldn’t forget their puppies they left at home, Bear and Juno – they got the wedding custom beer named after them. Favors were large travel size tumbler mugs printed with their custom monogram. Place cards were hand crafted with alcoholic ink. Desserts were cannolis brought up from Allison and Jordan’s favorite Italian restaurant in Denver. They danced for 3 hours, but that wasn’t the end. The historic Estes Park Trolleys transported all the guests to the Wheelhouse Bar in old town, the only bar that stays open in this town past 11 PM, + continued the celebration onward. To say that their guests had a rockin’ good time, is an understatement.
