Tony & Ashley's elegant, summer wedding was full of so many pretty details! We started the day at Horsetooth Reservoir in Fort Collins, which was absolutely stunning. With the combination of the lake and the mountains, it truly showed off the beauty of Colorado. Next we headed to the most adorable venue called Wedgewood at Tapestry House. It had such a unique charm about it with so much character. I was in love!
Tony & Ashley were so much fun to work with! I got along so great with them, and they seriously had the sweetest families. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day!
They dated for seven years before Tony proposed! They were engaged for almost a year. So by the time they were married, they had been together for eight years.
Ashley said that there were so many things that made her know that Tony was the one. She said that he is hilarious, adventurous, supportive, and kind. The first time Ashley saw him interacting with children, she knew. Her background is in child development and she has always loved being around children. When she saw how gentle and caring he was for the kids, and how much he loved to make them laugh, she was in awe. She said that he's just amazing. She also added that he's easy on the eyes and a good cook!
They had always talked about a destination wedding. A Colorado wedding was perfect because they could plan from home in Colorado, but since their family and friends were all in Michigan, it was still a destination wedding for everyone else.
Their wedding color palette and style vision was navy blue and pale pink/peach. They wanted it to be a romantic and rustic style.
Tony and Ashley made their own centerpieces which were wooden crates with flowers in them.
The flowers were ivory and pale pinks and peaches. Ashley's sister put together the bouquets and centerpieces, so the type of flower were based off of what the stores around them had in stock. Their favors were trail mix in cute bags made by Ashley's mom. They had a dessert table with cookies, brownies, donuts, and a small cake for them to cut.
Ashley's advice to future brides is to not sweat the small stuff. She said that there are so many little details that she was getting worked up about, and later realized they really don't matter. All that mattered was that she was marrying the love of her life.
