From the Newlyweds... Q: Tell us about your wedding! What was the inspiration behind your day? Did you have a specific theme, style or color palette? Did you incorporate any cultural or religious traditions in any part of your day? A: Since we had so many special memories from vacationing and getting engaged in Telluride, we knew we wanted to get married here. Gorrono ranch was the easy choice the moment we saw the venue without all the skiers on the porch. Because the place is so pretty naturally, we wanted to stick with a very neutral theme. We used white flowers with shades of blush and green, beige bridesmaid dresses, and minimal color. The beauty was in the surroundings that not much was needed to add to our venue. The groom's childhood friend is a pastor at the church he grew up at, so we had a very personal Christian ceremony that was tailored just for our love for each other. Q: Let's talk wedding decor. How did you decorate your space for the ceremony and the reception? Was any part of the decor DIY? A: We wanted to keep the décor minimal because the backdrop was so beautiful. Everything we did we tried to keep natural- the cake was on a tree stump, we used candlelight inside, and lots of greenery. Q: What were the florals like in your wedding? Did you use flowers in any of your design elements like the bridal bouquets, centerpieces or ceremony backdrop? Did they play an important part in the overall style of your wedding? A: I wanted to keep the simplicity in the florals. I love orchids, so I had a beautiful white orchid waterfall bouquet. Besides my statement bouquet, we kept our floral to a minimum due to our beautiful surroundings. Q: Did you personalize the day in any way (food trucks, guest entertainment etc.)? What were some of your favorite parts of your wedding? A: Our guest bags included a hand drawn map of Telluride with a itinerary, personalized cards, and a personalized ribbon with our hashtag #Tellureich. Q: Let's talk fashion. How did you choose your wedding day look? How did the groom? Describe both looks in detail. A: As the bride, I wanted something simple and something to go with the look of an outdoor wedding. I knew I wanted a crepe material, but couldn't find the perfect look. I ended up buying my dress and altering the look almost completely to make the fit and look what I wanted. As for hair and makeup, I wanted to go as simple as possible. Again, the beauty was in the scenery and as a couple we are not materialistic. I wanted my groom to recognize me as the person he fell in love with, which is not a overly done up girl.The groom has a solid sense of style and had his three piece suit custom made at Neiman Marcus. He knew we wanted a 'true' blue to stand out from the average navy wedding and not give the wedding too dark of a look. The ties actually were an afterthought- the day of the wedding we realized we forgot ties, so the brides brother ran down to the only shop in Telluride that had a big enough assortment of ties for all the groomsmen to have a different shade. Thankfully it turned out okay! Q: How did you meet? Tell us about the proposal. A: We met about five years before we wed in the town we live of Fort Worth, Texas. Kenzie was on a blind date with someone else when they ran into each other and met. Ever since they have been inseparable. Kenzie's family is from Colorado and Devin's family vacations twice a year in Telluride. One summer, while the two families were vacationing, everyone took four-wheelers up to the top of Imogene Pass, a 13,000 ft mountain. It was snowing in the middle of July, and on the top of the mountain Devin proposed. It was only natural to get married in Telluride after all the memories over the years. Q: What was the most anticipated or special moment of your wedding day? A: Everything was so special, but by the time of the first dance I was able to really let everything sink in and enjoy everything that just happened. Our first dance song- Pistol by Dustin Kensrue, was the first song Devin sent to me only a month after dating. It felt full circle to know we have come so far. Q: Do you have any wedding planning or marriage advice that you'd like to share with other couples planning their day? A: Enjoy it! There are so many small details, it is easier to plan small additions one thing at a time over the course of the engagement instead of trying to get everything done at once. It makes all the small pieces more thoughtful and personal. Looking back- nobody cares about all the tiny things you stress about, they care about seeing two people genuinely happy on their wedding day making vows.
