Their Story: "When it came to wedding planning, we both took into consideration how large our extended families are, and that we could either do an intimate ceremony with our parents, grandparents, and best friends, or we would have a very large ceremony with over 300 people. At the end of the day, we wanted to be able to celebrate our love and the next chapter in our lives in a way that best suited us - outside in the mountains in the midst of winter, surrounded by our immediate families and best friends. We will have a large celebration in June 2022 to incorporate the rest of our family and be able to mingle and embrace the chaos in a laid-back manner.”
Wedding Details: "Locals" to Colorado, Bekka + John decided to have a small destination wedding. Yes, even us who live in the Front Range like to travel to the mountains. Their all-inclusive package was complete with photographer (Andrea is amazing!), florals, officiant, cake, our planning services, benches for seating (and yes, in the winter we do bring cozy blankets) and an onsite coordinator who also plays music for the ceremony. One of our favorite moments (okay, there were LOTS) was the first look with Dad. ❤️

I've been planning weddings since 1995 when I moved to Colorado from Iowa. I cut my teeth at Keystone Resort in their wedding department, then then ventured on to planning corporate meetings. But, I kept helping friends and their friends with weddings starting my first full-service company in 2002 (yes - planned the big overwhelming ones). In 2012 with the birth of my son, values shifted and I decided to go small, intimate and meaningful. Please connect with me to make your dreamy, simple mountain wedding come true!
Behind the Scenes
Ever wonder what goes on behind-the-scenes of a micro-wedding day? Jaime L. Barba, one of our talented professional photographers, captured me at work from one of our May 2023 weddings in Boulder, Colorado. Enjoy! .... and yes, she does wedding-day content creation (a great alternative if you cannot afford videography) for couples as well as photography.
What is a wedding day content creator? It’s someone who is there on your wedding day taking pictures on a cell phone (or in Jaime's case, her professional equipement), documenting behind-the-scenes moments, capturing and telling stories, and delivering short-form media content of your wedding day in real-time.
