This SKYLIGHT Wedding Is Proof You Can Have a Tropical Wedding Anywhere

When Margaret and Malachi began planning their wedding, they were set on having a celebration that lasted all night and reflected their personal style. They were fortunate to discover a venue that provided a perfect starting point for their vision. Using vibrant colors, lush flowers, and modern decor, they turned their SKYLIGHT wedding into the tropical paradise they had always dreamed of for their special day.

SKYLIGHT proved to be the ideal wedding venue for the couple due to its great location and versatile space. They took full advantage of its blank canvas appeal, adorning it with stunning floral pillars and a vibrant geometric backdrop for their ceremony altar, along with a lush greenery installation. Their creativity knew no bounds as they transformed the space for the reception, complete with wooden tables adorned with elegant centerpieces.

If you’ve ever wondered about infusing your individuality into every element of your celebration to establish a unified and stylish theme, then this wedding is a must-see. The stunning photos, skillfully captured by NJ Duncan Photography, genuinely encapsulate the essence of this pair’s love story and the remarkable day they curated.

How They Landed on a Tropical SKYLIGHT Wedding

We had gone to a wedding that went to the wee hours of the morning and thought it was so fun not to have to change locations for an after party. Our venue was a 24-hour rental, so we got to choose whatever end time we wanted, and it worked out great. We also loved the blank canvas that we got to decorate and that it was centrally located so guests could stay in Denver. We had been going to a ton of weddings of friends when we got engaged, so we started by just thinking about what we liked and didn’t like at those weddings. Eventually, we found our venue and met with our planner, who gave us amazing vendor recommendations. The style of our wedding is very much a style we love in our own lives, relatively simple with warm touches and a few showy statements.

Having a Close Friend Officiate and a Shared Journey Down the Aisle

We had a close friend officiate, someone who we were close to as our relationship started, so he could speak to how we have grown together. We also walked down the aisle together; we wanted that to symbolize that we were entering this marriage as partners. We wrote our own vows, which definitely made things feel more intimate and specific to us. Reading our vows to each other in front of all the people we love the most.
