Cowboy marries his Cowgirl

A summer outdoor wedding in Colorado Springs…..

Notes from the Bride, Rachel on how they met and how he proposed…..

From the bride:

I had never had a serious relationship in my whole life, I really didn’t date very many people and I definitely didn’t even kiss very many people. Last May, my friend Christy asked me to do this Living Social deal with her, one month of for $15. I said I would sign up and filled out a profile, uploaded some pictures… and completely forgot about it. A week and a half to two weeks later, she calls me up. “Who ya been talking to, anything interesting in match world?” Oh. Crap. She gets kind of upset and asks why I would say I’d do something with her and then not do it. I felt really bad. She said “Please just talk to ONE person.” Sigh. OK, Christy… I check my match account. 57 new messages in my inbox?! That is… OVERWHELMING, to say the least. I immediately ignore all those messages. There in the top left side of my screen, there’s a little picture that says rampart32 underneath it. “Rampart32 has added you to his favorites.” Wait, this guy is the only one that added me to his favorites but didn’t write me? I’m intrigued. It was his first day on, and he didn’t know what he was doing yet. I learned that LATER. I skimmed his profile, and it was really thoughtful so I decided I would send him a note. “Hey, hope you had a great weekend.” That’s all I said… it satisfied my requirement from C to “talk to ONE person.” He wrote me back (this time it popped up in my gmail) the kindest note, introducing himself, opening the conversation. I HAD to write back. I wasn’t scared, I wasn’t worried… I just wanted to write back this thoughtful person. I told him I wasn’t into the online thing, so here’s my number… and then he started talking to me. I was about to go on a 2 week vacation, so we texted just a little each of those days, and he eventually asked me out at some point to go dancing at the Grizzly Rose the Friday after the Tuesday I got back (June 7, 2013). I said I would love to, so we had those plans. I flew in Tuesday about noon, and started freaking out. I texted him and told him I needed to meet him sooner or I was afraid I was going to freak out and stand him up. He said “I’m free Wednesday or Thursday, would those work?” I told him, IT HAS TO BE TONIGHT! So, we met at Dairy Queen in Greeley, CO on a rainy evening and I slipped on the tile as I walked in. I was immediately put at ease when he joked with me about it, and we sat in that booth for a couple of hours laughing and having a good time. That was June 4th, 2013. I knew that I would know that guy for a long time, but didn’t exactly know how. We took things VERY slow and didn’t even kiss until the 4th wonderful night out. We would drive halfway (we lived an hour apart) and watch the sun go down, drink cokes and dance in a big parking lot. I was in a bad car accident on July 25, 2013. I had to, for the first time, depend on a man. I needed him to help me, I had to let him in my apartment overnight and really trust him. He was the most polite and wonderful and loving person. He became my best friend. We could talk about anything. That quickly grew into love, and then before I knew it I was IN love for the first time in my whole life. October 31, 2013 we officially started saying that to each other. Things kept happening to both of us, and we were just the best friends being there for each other and helping, and just being the best friends we could be. March 8, 2014… we went and washed our cars and vacuumed them out, and he took me to a park so we could “walk the dog,” and there, on a pier, over a small lake… he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was the single most thrilling moment of my entire life. I love this man, and I can’t wait for 25 days from now when we are walking down that aisle!

Urban, Denver Inspired Wedding

Notes from Wedding Planner, Nicole of Hey! Party Collective {LISTmember}:

We were so excited to work with Carolyn and John right away – they knew they wanted a very urban, Denver-centric, and unique wedding, and that is right up our alley!

They are both HUGE Rockies and Broncos fans, so purple and orange were almost mandatory in their color palette. Carolyn loved all things pink and glitter. We incorporated these preferences into a beautiful and sophisticated navy, fig, coral, and blush color palette, with glittery gold accents.

We collaborated with the couple on so many fun ideas for their big day. From Aiko Pops after the ceremony, to a disco ball installation and sequin linens, a photo booth, giant marquee letters, and ice cream truck, and neon glow sticks for the dance party – this was a bash.

The colorful and lush florals from Lale Florals were a masterpiece, and Carolyn’s blush pink dress was a showstopper.

However, one of the trendiest themes of today is an “English Country Garden Theme”. This elegant style of wedding is all about English roses, pastel colors, embroidered materials and delicate cakes. If you are looking for inspiration for a beautiful summer wedding you’ll love these tips and advice on how to have an English country garden wedding.

The invitations are your first opportunity to share your theme with your guests and get them excited about what’s to come. For the perfect invitation look for designs that use pastel colours, feature roses and use calligraphy style fonts. Touches of lace, ribbons and even pressed petals will send your guests an elegant indication of what’s in store. Check out our Local Invitation Designers to help you create a custom wedding invitation.


It’s all about historic buildings and vast, lush green gardens, rather than rustic country chic. Look for period venues with graceful interiors and exteriors. If you can’t get the perfect English style venue, don’t worry. Pick a countryside venue and just up the ante of your wedding decorations. If you are considering having your wedding in England, then you will be spoilt for choice for locations! Do some research online into country manors that host weddings. While you are at it, seek out a reputable wedding planner, wedding photographer, and caterer who can help you organize your wedding from abroad.

Roses are quintessentially English and will look right at home with this theme. Additionally, hydrangea, nigella and sweet peas will all look perfect. However, if you can’t get your hands on these types of flowers, look for different blooms in clotted cream, pale pink, blue and yellow colors. For centerpieces, present your flowers with additional sprigs of lavender and greenery in large glass vases.

Table decor

As well as your central vases bursting with pastel flowers, delicate candles and candle holders will look beautiful on your tables. Look for decor in pink and antique gold. As for the table clothes delicate floral patterns and embroidered material will be a winner. Homemade touches like individual wooden hearts carved with your guests’ names work very well with this theme. In terms of crockery, think blue and white china plates and bowls with perfectly shined silver cutlery.


For a traditional touch, sugared almonds in a mesh bag tied with ribbon would be perfect. For something more modern try homemade jams, jars of traditional candies or floral tea cups holding scented candles.

A traditional three tiered cake topped with fresh flowers and scattered petals is common at an English country garden themed wedding. However, for a contemporary touch, cupcakes decorated with flowers or a “naked cake” with fresh fruit and roses would also look stunning.

An English country garden theme is all about poise and elegance. By adding these touches to your big day, it is possible to achieve this theme in any setting.

Colorful Vintage

Notes from the wedding planner, Jessica of A Vintage Affair Events & Rentals

Jenny and Ben’s wedding was so much fun to plan and design. She wanted a colorful vibrant atmosphere.The invitations definitely set the tone with the hand illustrated floral liner based off the floral designs for the wedding. When it came to flowers, Jenny wanted something happy and bright, which is was she got. The textured gorgeous flowers really made the day. For their guestbook, guests signed quilt squares which the brides mother is going to latter make a quilt for the couple to keep. One of the most fun details was having Little Man Ice cream cart come at the end of the night. Guests got their pick of cake or ice cream (or both!).
