Fun, fantasy weddings that you dream of, have tons of magazines with dog eared pages keeping tabs on your favorite things, and planning a party that only happens once is they type of wedding a lot of brides go for. But for some, holding on to tradition and making it the star of the show for their wedding can be just as exciting and heartwarming. For it is these strong traditions and beliefs that brought such a man and a woman together to form a bond to last forever. Irena and Mark decided timeless tradition was to play a very important part in their Big Day. But that did not stop them in adding elegant and memorable touches of their own choosing. This wedding could be excellent inspiration for any bride.
Irena and Mark picked a sunny day in July for the one that would become “their” day. Spruce Mountain Ranch outside Larkspur, CO would play the host of this special event. It is surrounded by rows of weathered fence, green pastures, and tall trees leading the way to the mountains in the distance. The ceremony was held in a rustic room in front of a stone fireplace. Two One Photography was on site and ready to go with their trigger finger set to shoot. With the help of JA Special Events, they knew their wedding day was in the right hands. The wonderful detail caught on film for Irena and Mark is breathtaking which is the same said for her gown. Lace played a prominent role not only covering her gorgeous dress with sheer back cutout and delicate sleeve detail but also wrapped around the chuppah that was set up in front of a majestic fireplace. She wore crocheted flowers of red and green in her hair and they were also found on the branches that served as part of the centerpieces. Her bridesmaids wore different shades of vibrant greens and they all carried bouquets with pops of orange and white blooms. At ceremony time, a hush fell over the crowd as Irena was escorted in and finally met the eyes of her beloved Mark. They joined hands and took part in the traditional Jewish wedding customs of the signing of their colorful ketubah and the breaking of the wine glass. The heavenly words were finally spoken to join them as husband and wife. And they danced with joy!
The reception was held in a wondrous room with wood beams, wrought iron chandeliers, and large windows to let in all the natural light while taking in the beauty of the landscape. Wedding guests found their table seats on die casts penguins and awaiting them were tables perfectly covered in ivory cloths with family photos in vintage style frames and crystal vases holding twigs and the crocheted flowers. The wedding cake was a seamless masterpiece with masterful iced flowers and green color added to it. There was dancing and cheers and many happy memories made on this lovely night.
The photos that Two One Photography were able to capture for the bride and groom are priceless. They caught all the details, traditions new and old, and the pure love Irena and Mark have for each other. Let these two be an example of love and their wedding be inspiration for many brides to be.
