{Real Wedding} Summer of Love Revisited

A classic tale from the summer of love...
Boy meets girl.
Boy and girl fall in love.
Boy gets haircut.
Girl breaks up with boy.

40 years later they meet again, fall in love (again)...only this time......

Sarah and Anthony's Wedding
Colorado Wedding Consultant - Magnolia Hotel

The day started with the bride and her entourage having a great time getting ready at the salon, including a little break to dance to the brides favorite music provided by the DJ...yes, a DJ at the saloon (you can check it out at the video trailer at the bottom of this post....it's great)

Anthony wanted an Italian-ate feel to celebrate his heritage. Sarah wanted elegance with natural elements of  trees, fun lighting, as well as the twinkle lights she loved.   Mostly they both wanted it to be fun!

They  had a  Jewish ceremony, with tree arches lining the aisle, lots of twinkle lights and candles surrounded the chuppah.

The reception was just across the street in the ballroom, but we made getting there a little more fun!

Guests paraded down the block & across the street lead by a strolling guitarist....stopping downtown Denver traffic. There was a lot of horn honking, waving, and drivers even getting out of their cars to watch and cheer.

The reception decor was a mixture of contemporary settings with the natural Italianate centerpieces.


The bride loved a variety of textures and we brought that out in the linens.  Tables were different shapes, and each had their own unique look.

Jewish and kabbalah symbols in lighted gobos slowly alternated on the wall.

The focal point, taunting the guests all night, was the phenomenal dessert bar complete with cannolis, cake pops, mini wedding cakes in assorted flavors; and a cake designed to mimic the brides dress.

Guests were entertained by the Jersey Boys show, a Frankie Valli singer for their first dance (a nod to their childhood summer of love), a DJ, as well as the family favorite karaoke.

The trailer is so emotional, I love it, it totally captured how they feel about each other:
