We think it's incredible when we can show up to a wedding only having met a couple once or twice, and the little touches of the ceremony bloom into the intricate and detailed layers of who these folks really are. Getting to know people in this way on their wedding day is one big reason we love our job.
Amy & Nick's fall Denver wedding was that kind of day. It was very important for these two to include their guests in their ceremony and throughout the evening. Amy's choir group sang for the ceremony; they made vows to their guests; and before it got started, they drew a name out of a hat and named that person the missing grooms(wo)man right on the altar. They left the church and went straight into a second-line (for the uninitiated, that's a New Orleans-style foot parade usually led by a brass band) and walked to the Irish Rover. After speeches and pie, Amy & Nick put on a video of anti-wedding clips they collected (a first for us) and served their guests ice cream themselves. This is a couple committed not just to themselves, but to everyone around them.
St. Peter & St. Mary Episcopal Church had so many old stained glass windows, we couldn't help ourselves; it's easy to get lost in details in this church. The extremely stylish officiant was part of that.
