Gina and Micah’s spring wedding at Sanctuary Golf Course, where soft pastel tones, personalized stationery, and a fusion of Korean and German heritage created a celebration to remember. Despite the rainy May weather in Colorado, the couple’s romantic garden party theme, infused with cultural touches, delighted the 180 guests in attendance.

While we experienced a heavy downpour the day before, the skies cleared up just in time on Friday, setting the stage for a romantic garden wedding. Gina’s House of Savin gown from Little White Dress set the tone, perfectly complementing the colorful florals and tablescapes that adorned the venue. The vibrant ambiance created an enchanting atmosphere for the celebration, captured beautifully by Amanda Berube and Ellen Disorbo.

Drawing on Gina’s graphic design background, the couple embraced their heritages by intertwining Korea’s national flower, the Mugunghwa (Hibiscus), and Germany’s national flower, the Cornflower, to create a unique wedding monogram. This symbol was thoughtfully integrated throughout the event, paying homage to their diverse backgrounds.

Before walking down the aisle, Gina and Micah shared an intimate first look, exchanging personal vows. Following the ceremony, the couple changed into traditional Korean hanboks custom made for them, and invited their guests to be part of the Paebaek ceremony. The Paebaek ceremony symbolizes the unification of the newlywed couple, where the groom’s family formally welcomes the bride into their household. Being able to share Gina’s Korean heritage and Micah’s willingness and wanting to celebrate it made this moment especially meaningful.

Incorporating their shared love for fly fishing, Gina and Micah created an escort board that charmingly reflected this passion. The couple’s own creativity shone through as they collaborated on this unique piece, with acrylic lettering cut out by Paper and Dust Co. The couple’s attention to detail extended to the reception area, where illustrations of fly fishing flies were cleverly incorporated onto the place cards, serving as indicators for meal choices. The reception space continued the romantic garden theme, with Blush and Bay Floral creating fresh fruit and lush floral arrangements. The head table showcased pattern plays and mismatched glassware, adding an eclectic touch to the decor.

Guests were treated to a delightful selection of desserts, including an ice cream truck by High Point Creamery and traditional Korean rice cakes. The festivities continued in the pavilion, where Tony from The Get Down Co. entertained and energized the crowd, ensuring a night of non-stop dancing and celebration.

Gina and Micah’s spring wedding was a harmonious blend of cultural traditions, personalized details, and a romantic garden ambiance. With their love for one another and their shared vision, they created an unforgettable celebration that beautifully reflected their unique backgrounds and personalities. This day of love and unity will forever be cherished by the couple and their guests. The deepest gratitude and appreciation for all of the vendors who brought their visions to life, and every hand involved into making the wedding a truly memorable event.
