This sweet couple stole our hearts from the minute we started working with them! We worked with them long distance to plan their Colorado mountain wedding and met only a handful of times over the course of over a year of planning. We felt like we really got to know the two of them, so on their wedding day it was like watching two friends tie the knot.
Their ceremony took place with a panorama of the most stunning views of Lumpy Ridge, Rocky Mountain National Park behind them on the Black Canyon Inn property. Jandee’s aunt married them in the most touching ceremony. The reception followed at the Twin Owls Steakhouse is an award winning restaurant in a charming log cabin built in the 1920’s. This original homestead is on the Black Canyon Inn property.
We loved Jandee’s choice of a summery color palate – she started with yellow, teal and gray and Fiori flowers adding in pops of orange and pink to provide a little interest and variety. Gray linens lighted up the dark woods of the room and created a lovely focal point for the teal antique glass vases. We brought in Chairished (now Yonder Floral + Design) to provide a lovely seating vignette for the cocktail hour as well as strung market lights and a few small decor pieces.
The dessert bar from Shamane’s Bake Shoppe featured a small cutting cake and other favorites. However it was the overflowing traditional (groom’s side) cookie bar that was the hit . Family members, as well as Shamane’s, provided literally hundreds of cookies. This was the first time we saw this Pennsylvania wedding tradition and we have to be honest – we like whoever came up with that idea!
