Elegant Vineyard Wedding in Colorado


September 13, 2023

It was a picture-perfect summer day for Brittany and Connor’s wedding at Hillside Vineyard in Fort Collins. The entire day was filled with so much love and happiness, it was nearly impossible to stop smiling! 

Jeremy and I strive to create meaningful connections and build strong relationships with our clients, and Brittany and Connor are no exception. We have had the pleasure of getting to know them really well over the past year. Jeremy had the honor of guiding them through premarital counseling, a role we deeply cherish in a couple’s journey towards marriage. 

From their Estes Park Engagement to Jeremy officiating the wedding, we felt as though we were sharing the day with dear friends, not just clients. These two have our hearts, and it just made the entire experience so very special! 

Jessie Wagner from Alegria Beauty absolutely saved the day by stepping in when the bride’s original makeup artist had a family emergency at the last minute. Jessie swooped in like a superhero, making sure the bride and her girls started the day with the pampering they deserved! We are big believers in investing in relationships with fellow wedding vendors, because it builds a network of friends you can call on in a moment’s notice! 

As the gals got ready in the lovely bridal suite, the groom and his guys were having a blast outside playing spike ball! We just loved the atmosphere of the day. It was truly a celebration and a whole lot of fun was happening in the moments leading up to the ceremony. 

The transition from cocktail hour to the reception was just as playful, with guests being ushered through a tunnel of bubbles leading them right into the venue. Everyone dined on tacos and nachos, which happen to be our two favorite food groups. It was a definite win in our book! 

While guests were busy enjoying some delicious food, we snuck the couple away for some sunset photos. We took a quick jaunt to a nearby mountain overlook in Fort Collins, allowing them some time to savor the moment and reflect on the fact that they’re officially husband and wife! 

Amidst the sweetness and emotion, there were plenty of laughs during our little excursion. We found ourselves strolling past a herd of deer, which of course Connor tried to befriend…with not much luck. 

The sunset was breathtaking, and Brittany was an absolute knockout in her dress from the Bridal Collection. I’m so grateful we were able to share that special moment with them.

Meanwhile, things were moving along like clockwork at the reception! The entire venue was just gorgeous thanks to the talented Amanda from Reale Events. The soft white florals and greenery, along with the bride’s stunning bouquet, were truly a sight to behold. 

We love a fun dessert option, so when we saw the ice cream station from Cold Stone Creamery, we didn’t have to wonder why the crowd was growing exponentially. Delicious ice cream on a summer evening? Who doesn’t love that!?

Finally, things wrapped up with some hilarious toasts that had us rolling with laughter. Guests told so many funny stories about the couple! We learned that Connor’s friends love to raz him about his bald head, huge beard, and unfortunately amputated finger. Thankfully, he has an amazing sense of humor! 

What an unforgettable celebration! Our hearts are full and we are so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this day. Brittany and Connor, we wish you so much happiness and love in your new life together!
