The Red Rocks View Wasn’t Even the Prettiest Part of This Manor House Colorado Wedding

June 16, 2019 | juliette

Jackie and Andrew’s Colorado wedding at The Manor House was as timeless and elegant as they come! The venue was picture-perfect in every way, giving the couple the opportunity to hold an outdoor ceremony and an indoor reception, all with a view of the Red Rocks and the city. We can hardly get enough of the romantic color palette Sugar n Stems used for the floral designs, which looked stunning alongside Jackie and Andrew’s sophisticated style. And don’t even get us started on the special appearance by their sweet pup! From the first look among the skyscrapers to the portraits in the rocky Colorado landscape, Mary Meck Weddings did a phenomenal job capturing every moment of this special day!

The Couple:

Jackie and Andrew

The Wedding:

The Manor House, Littleton, Colorado

Our main goal was that the wedding to feel like us. It had to be a celebration of the love we have for each other and for the family and friends there with us!

The Manor House is set on top of a hill and shows off the beauty of Colorado with the Denver skyline and Red Rocks in view. The venue perfectly tied together with the classic and romantic vibe we were looking for!

I loved that my wedding dress was unique, simple, and elegant. I wore my grandmother’s earrings, which my sister wore in her own wedding. The earrings were a staple of my grandmother’s look when I was growing up, so it was a special way to incorporate her memory into the day.

Neutral and Rust Virginia Wedding at The Market at Grelen

June 15, 2019 | juliette

It may not even be summer yet, but we’re obsessing over the autumnal feel of Hannah and James’ Virginia wedding at The Market at Grelen! Even with a rainstorm that forced the ceremony from the outdoor vista into the greenhouse, everything about this day was magical. Urban Flora embraced the couple’s bohemian vibe with organic and textural arrangements in the prettiest fall palette, which looked stunning alongside the handmade ceremony arbor, agate slice place cards, and macrame details. Brousseau Events went above and beyond putting all the elements of Hannah and James’ boho-chic wedding together, and Alex Mari Photography could not have captured it all more perfectly!

The Couple:

Hannah and James

The Wedding:

The Market at Grelen, Somerset, Virginia

I wanted our wedding to be uniquely us, a joyous celebration of marriage, and for it to be God-glorifying. It was super important for me to make it OUR wedding, not a cookie cutter wedding you’d see on Pinterest. Trends come and go, but what you love, what speaks to you and your relationship doesn’t.

The most memorable part for me was seeing my husband break down in tears as I walked down the aisle. This is also one of my favorite photos! We did a first look and he had already cried during that, but the emotion of that moment was so great in a small greenhouse with rain pouring down, surrounded by all of our closest family and friends. It is something I will never forget.

We did a worship song, “How Great is Your Love” by Phil Wickham, at the beginning of the ceremony and a foot-washing ceremony as our first act as a married couple. This signified how, in marriage, we will aim to humbly serve each other each day, just as Christ did for us.

As a wedding photographer myself, it was hard to choose a wedding vibe because I had been to so many weddings and loved so many different things. However, I had always loved all things bohemian so we went for a natural bohemian aesthetic and I incorporated just random things that I loved along the way.

In terms of DIY projects: My husband spent days making our arbor; my mom made our cake; and I made our agate slice table numbers, as well as the welcome banner and the macrame seating chart!

Our best advice is to book your wedding photographer and videographer right away and invest in those areas! I never knew how much I would truly cherish my wedding photos and video until now. It was the best day of our lives, with our favorite people who flew from all over the world to be with us, and our pictures and video are all the most precious moments that we get to live over and over again.

We had our friends who own a donut truck, Dawn + Dusk Donuts, come and give out fresh gourmet donuts for dessert, and it was such a fun touch! Even though it was pouring down rain, people still ventured out to get them with umbrellas — and people are still raving about them 5 months later!
