It warmed our hearts so to watch Ken + Steve tie the knot this past weekend on the Chautauqua Lawn with the mighty Flatirons serving as the perfect backdrop! It was an intimate wedding with some of Ken + Steve’s nearest and dearest friends and family gathering to witness these two finally make it official after 16 long years of waiting for the law to change. With a ceremony filled with lots of laughter and some tears, we watched these two devoted souls make a life long promise to each other – which was magical to say the least!
After the ceremony, the couple and the guests gathered on the lawn to participate in a champagne toast to congratulate the happy couple! After the champagne toast, guests made their way up to enjoy cocktail hour on the patio of the Chautauqua Dining Hall just as the sun began to shine through the clouds!
Once cocktail hour was complete, guests found their way to their tables located inside of the Chautauqua Dining Hall. With a few toasts, a cake cutting, and photo booth filled with fun, guests were able to enjoy good food and mingle with each other before moving the party to License No. 1 Bar. Needless to say we felt so lucky to be a part of such a special day and know that #lovewins!

Annie + Thomas’ wedding this summer was absolutely jaw dropping. The bride wanted a casual yet elegant wedding with gorgeous flowers and close friends. Their wedding ceremony was held at St. John’s Episcopal Church and their reception was hosted at the St Julien which was one of a kind. It had farm tables with garland and flowers cascading down the middle, set al fresco under market lights illuminating the evening. After dinner, guests were invited inside to dance where they were greeted with a sparkling twinkle lit room and a band to ensure a night of fun! Laura Murray’s stunning photos help illustrate how magical the day truly was! If you want to see more of Annie + Thomas take a look at our portfolio! xx, Calluna
