This couple. This team. This day.
Anyone who works in this industry knows the insane hours, long days, and endless emails and phone calls that inevitably occur with planning a killer event. You can lay everything out to a T and still run into unwanted surprises – rain, wardrobe malfunctions, too-drunk-and-holding-a-mic guests, etc..
But then there are some moments in this industry, and with our individual roles, that we get to take a step back, look at an event, and feel truly grateful and emotional about what we get to do for a living and the people we get to do it with.
Katie and Kyle tied the knot at Spruce Mountain Ranch – Albert’s Lodge on July 28, 2017, and we could not have asked for a more easy-going, kind, and humble couple to work with. Their simple and obvious love for one another radiated throughout the evening, naturally attracting a guest list of midwest mannered loved ones, and overachieving, “go-getter” vendor partners.
What was supposed to have been an outdoor ceremony turned into an indoor one, with Colorado rain and hail (and even more rain) having their own plans for the day. Without missing a beat, Glow Events, Project Floral, and the whole Occasions team quickly flipped the room for both ceremony and reception use, lending the couple to exchange sweet, intimate vows in front of The Albert’s Lodge’s custom, old-fashioned fireplace in no time.
Weather changes are usually no big deal, obviously nothing that we haven’t seen before and nothing we don’t prepare for in advance – however, what is rare is when you can watch a whole group of vendor partners drop all their preconceived plans, come together so calmly and kindly, and also help your event staff flip a room to make sure the wedding is nothing less than perfect in imperfect circumstances. Whether you were a planner that day, a florist, an assistant, or an Occasions team member – everyone lent a hand to pull of a flawless wedding (on time!), for an extremely deserving, gracious couple…
Plus, who can resist being a part of such a personalized wedding? Luscious florals filled Albert’s Lodge and welcomed guests into the room, along with a custom, hand-lettered wood welcome sign for “Katie and Kyle.” The couple even personalized their bars by including hand-drawn signature drink chalkboards from Occasions, featuring the couple’s favorite beers from Dry Dock Brewing Co..
Every detail was refined and reflective of the couple, and we could not have done any of it without our amazing partners:
