Today I have a more traditional church wedding and hotel reception. A lot of emphasis is placed on on the “rustic” wedding in Colorado and barn weddings seem to take all. But there are certainly lots of couples who still like the comfort of their home churches and prefer the more distinguished look of a ballroom reception. Abby and Rhett’s pink and grey wedding feels fresh and modern with touches of tradition. The lovely photography from Aventura Photo Video highlights the beautiful touches and understated details.

Their Story:

Rhett and I met at the University of Oklahoma. He was a catcher for the baseball team and I was on the track and cross country teams. We met in study hall while wearing sweat pants and no make up. He told me to help him with his crossword puzzle he was struggling with and was impressed with how quickly I answered it. ;) From then on, we were inseparable best friends that grew into a strong relationship. On our two year anniversary (about four years after we met), he took me on a trip to celebrate. He rented out Arrowhead Bed and Breakfast in the mountains of Colorado (Morrison). I walked into a beautiful room and noticed a bottle on the bed. There was a note inside that was a hand-written poem Rhett had written that asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. After I finished reading it, through the tears in my eyes, I saw him down on one knee with my dream ring. After, he took me to dinner on the mountaintop. It was beautiful. We celebrated the entire weekend at the B&B. – Abby

The Details:

  • The rosary wrapped around the bridal bouquet belonged to Abby’s grandmother.
  • Their “guest book” consisted of wooden letters that spelled their last name.
  • A sign they made had a timeline of their relationship. (Cute!)
  • Flower girl dresses and accessories were homemade.
  • A friend of the bride and groom played piano during the ceremony.

The Best Part:

One of my favorite wedding memories was doing our personal vows to each other. Rhett made me feel like every woman should feel on their wedding day. He cried and expressed with all the perfect words what I meant to him. – Abby
