They were such a fun couple to work with. Both lived out of state, Margie in LA and David in Texas and were planning a destination wedding while having a long-distance relationship. They had met while in college at University of Colorado in Boulder and had then gone on to get married to different people and live in different states. Many years later, after both had divorced, they reconnect on MySpace. David is a musician and Margie found him through his MySpace page.
They started a long-distance relationship and quickly realized that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. Because they both had lived in Boulder at one time they decided to do the wedding there. Their ceremony and reception were held at a private residence owned by Margie’s cousin. The setting was amazing; large and expansive views of the Flatirons and plenty of room for their 160 guests.
Margie and David wanted a completely laid back feeling where the emphasis was on the food, music and décor. For the food we brought in Dave Query, owner of the Big Red F restaurants (Jax, Centro, West End) in Boulder and Denver. Dave and his crew catered both the rehearsal dinner on the property as well as the dinner the night of the wedding. The food was based loosely on the food from Centro and had a southwestern flair to it.
Because David is a musician, music was very important to them,. They complied a great collaboration of musicians from Boulder that make up the band La Candela, a salsa band.
Margie had an amazing vision for her colors and décor, wanting to keep with the laid back feel but give the tent a pop. We brought in Denver Design Works, who transformed the tent. The ceiling was draped with pink and orange fabric that created a lovely atmosphere. There were pink and orange paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling. Lights were projected onto the fabric and lanterns to create a warm glow. Design Works also brought in the linens and napkins to coordinate. The centerpieces, candles, place cards and favors all matched the décor and colors. David has a daughter from his prior marriage and they decided to have his daughter as their maid of honor. They also chose all children on both sides for the bridesmaids and groomsmen. It was adorable.
