The feeling evoked from Erin & Mark’s wedding was one of, “If I were getting married (or married again) this is the type of wedding I’d want to have”. From the brides gown and effortless beauty to the simple and modern table decor and the delicious local, farm-to-table, family-style dinner, the entire evening was just perfect. And even though a torrential rainstorm threatened to dampen the spirits of the day the bride and groom and all the wedding guests remained calm and laid back, waiting out the storm to have the wedding ceremony outside like the bride and groom wished.
The wedding took place at the urban and hip Blanc in Denver’s RiNo District on the 4th of July. Blanc is one of our favorite venues to work at and it didn’t disappoint! Plum Sage Flowers designed lovely green and white florals for the tables with accents of ferns and herbs. The simple white vases from Plum Sage and gold flatware from Yonder House contrasted with the tables and provided the modern design we were going for. Yonder House also provided two lovely seating vignettes which were placed outside underneath the trees to create an intimate seating area.
Blackbelly Catering, owned by Chef Hosea Rosenburg, has been a favorite of ours since they opened three seasons ago. We love working with them and they continue to outdo themselves on food and service! Their food is always locally sourced, locally raised and locally grown. The menu is fresh and reflects what is in season, sometimes ingredients are even picked that day! We consistently hear over and over again how incredible the food is and for couples wanting a true farm-to-table experience where the food is the center of the wedding experience, Blackbelly is the way to go!
Ceremony and cocktail hour music was provided by Chain Station, friends of the bride and groom, and Mark even sung a song during the reception!
And last but not least Erin was made gorgeous that day by Janie Rocek, who did Erin’s hair and make up. Erin’s dress was from Katie May Collection and she purchased it at A & Be Bridal Shop in Denver.
We cannot wait to see the professional photographs from their wedding photographer Jess Elysse of Art of Her Photography but in the meantime here are some of our favorites we snapped with our iPhones.
