I knew this was going to be a fun wedding early on when the groom said, “Mom, would you please sheath the swords so the dogs don’t step on them?” Really, I knew this was going to be a great time the night before at the rehearsal dinner, hosted by the groom’s parents at the Dushanbe Tea House; one of the guest’s name badges said as much.
The weekend’s weather was perfect all around, from the mild temperature and big fluffy white clouds to the little bit of “lucky” rain during the ceremony. The getting ready preparations included wrestling Kim & Matt’s two dogs, Bandit and Rider, into tuxedos. Both pups quickly ended up in the river, despite their finery. But I’m not sure I’ve ever seen two happier dogs.
After their first look and portrait session, Kim & Matt had an intimate ceremony to sign the ketubah in front of their closest friends and family. Their larger ceremony took place next to the North St. Vrain Creek. They exchanged vows and rings, drank wine from a shared cup and broke the traditional glass. Then the party started….
The couple was introduced to the reception and went straight into one of the most energetic horas I’ve ever seen. Dinner was served and devoured and then the newlyweds and their guests danced the night away to Tunisia, because when your wedding is at a concert venue, it’s a no-brainer to hire a live band. When they got tired of dancing, they headed out to the fire pit to roast homemade marshmallows for s’mores under the stars.
The number one best compliment we can receive from a couple is for them to say, on the day of the wedding, long before they see their photos, “You’re the professionals; we trust you.” Kim & Matt paid us this compliment last weekend and, in my perhaps-somewhat-biased opinion, it paid off. Trusting their vendors to make the day amazing allowed them to relax while we all (see vendors below) worked our tails off to make the day spectacular. From the lighting to the flowers to the food, the day shimmered with perfection.
