The Couple 

Lesley + John

The Wedding 

“Who knew that a single swipe right could lead to a fairytale “Tinderella” story? We certainly didn’t expect it, but are the picture perfect example of what can happen when you step out in faith and trust that your soul mate exists.”
– Lesley, the bride
It all started as a single date and lead to many adventures, including a trip to John’s family cabin in Lake City, CO. At first sight, Lesley instantly knew, this would be their wedding venue. They explored everything nature had to offer in and around this exquisite, quaint little town. The river and views nestled perfectly behind the family cabin were breathtaking. It offered a natural backdrop for the wedding of her dreams! To express their love to guests, daily breakfast was made by the owners of the local Bed & Breakfast. Everyone went on a mesmerizing Colorado canoeing adventure in addition to riding ATVs for hours on the Alpine Loop. This Weber family wedding set in a stunning Colorado valley was paired with a rustic, yet lavish boho decor, suggested by Jacinda at Kefi Events. Guests arrived feeling “welcomed and at home.” John was passionate about utilizing local vendors and craftsman. Locally made benches were filled by their closest loved ones, they complimented every aspect of the ceremony. All details of their wedding were carefully selected including adding their three, precious pups to the guest list, nieces & nephews as flower girls & ring bearers, an old truck for pictures, blankets for each guest in case of a cool Colorado evening, and custom made “Diamond Ring Ranch” glassware to be raised in a toast to their new life together. The finishing touch for Lesley and John were the decades old, cherished wedding bands they exchanged, previously worn and given to them by her grandparents. As Alexa Kilgore Acoustic began singing and playing, Lesley was nervous about walking down the aisle. She had a secret fear of falling, when she rounded the corner, laid eyes on the HUGE smile of her husband-to-be, in that moment, everything around her faded, she calmly stepped forward towards her forever! John was waiting with open arms and embraced her in a hug which began their tear filled ceremony led by Emily, Lesley’s best friend. Lesley & John continue to be filled with so much gratitude and remain amazed by the love and support received from the 70+ guests that traveled so far to share in their special day. Without the help of their family, friends, Kefi Events, local vendors, and others, the wedding would not have come to life. THANK YOU to all who made their dream wedding a reality.
