In the Botanic Gardens, the lilies floated nearby, suspended on a bed of water where rain lightly dropped and circulated into eternity. The ripples outwardly balanced movements looked like echoes from speakers, perhaps a way to hear something new. Love lyrics from the Beatles were written across the bridesmaid’s umbrellas, ricocheting and redirecting the sweet moisture toward a new direction. Beneath a pearl canopy, Sarah and Vernon united their spirits while tying the knot made of mint, eggplant, and ivory colors. It was a reuniting with another spirit for Sarah and her family, as her late father spent his career with the Botanic Gardens.
Certainly, family is very important to Sarah and Vernon. Not only did they want her father’s spirit to be present by getting married at the place he spent so many years, they also united their family names upon their wedding cake. They even had a wooden puzzle of a tree that guests signed. This, too, can be taken apart and reunited again.
The weather was so bizarrely Colorado and wonderful! The morning was sunny and hot while clouds and rain showers rolled through and passed by overhead. When the sun finally came out after dinner after the weather had shifted so many times, it brought about an enormous rainbow that stretched end over and above the Gardens. In addition, the cool stylings of the keyboard player were a mellow way to soak in the Sunday afternoon beauty.
Sarah and Vernon, it was such a joy to capture your beautiful day in the Botanic Gardens! You both are such genuinely sweet and thoughtful individuals, who united create a perfect balance. It truly could not have been a more lovely day spent at the Botanic Gardens telling your love story!
