Real Wedding Wednesday - Sarah & Justin

When Brides Against Breast Cancer rolled through town earlier this year, we were given the privilege to meet a wonderful couple. As part of the event, Sarah & Justin won wedding consulting services, and when their original wedding planner was unable to help, Classic Creations came to the rescue!

Sarah & Justin tied the knot on July 10, 2010 at the Augustine Grill in Castle Rock, Colorado. A romantic outdoor ceremony in the venue's flower garden was followed by an incredibly fun ceremony catered by the venue and DJ'd by the bride's brothers! Personal and quaint, Sarah & Justin's wedding was a perfect compliment to the couple's personality and an absolute pleasure to work on.

Here's what Sarah had to say about her big day.

I wanted a relaxed, classy and outdoor feel to my wedding. I love being from Colorado and love the mountains. We picked a mountain venue first, but it started to get logistically complicated and expensive, so we changed it to Augustine Grill in Castle Rock, since we're both small town people and it's home. It gave us the outdoors, aspen trees and pine trees, and it was simple. The gardens and fountains made it beautiful and peaceful.

What was your favorite part of the day? Wow... the WHOLE day! But the highlights were getting pampered with manicures/pedicures with my girlfriends in the morning, seeing Justin for pictures before the wedding because he got tears in his eyes and he was the nervous one, not me! We had such a special private moment and had glasses of champagne and drove over to the ceremony yelling, we're getting married!! The second best thing was walking down the aisle and seeing everyone I love the most.

What advice would you give to someone planning a wedding now? Keep things as simple as you can, because it really is about you and your husband... not all the wedding magazines, websites, to do lists. Make it personal. Make it you. Justin and I set a simple goal of writing just three lines for wedding vows. We finished them a DAY before the wedding, and it made it so personal and special and let people know more about our relationship and what we've been through.

Classic Creations helped make my day special in so many ways. Julie asked me questions about what was important to me. Little design details like pinecones on the tables, the unity candle lighting with our mothers involved and helping with microphones and sound... it made it so everyone could really enjoy the whole event and it all went so smoothly. I just got to enjoy it!

We're so happy for Sarah & Justin and thrilled we were able to help them enjoy their wedding day. We wish them the best in their marriage and their life together! Congrats guys!
