Love on the Ice
“So this is everything I have to tell you about love and marriage: nothing,
Like a book without pages or a forest without trees.
Because there are things you cannot know before you experience them.
Because nobody else’s love, nobody else’s marriage, is like yours,
And it’s a road you can only learn by walking it,
A dance you cannot be taught,
A song that did not exist before you began, together, to sing.”
Love was in the air and on the ice at the 2023 Valentine’s Group Wedding ceremony, held at the Budweiser Event Center. Even though couples stood and said “I Do” and “I Do, Again” over the hockey rink ice, there were no cold feet in the crowd!
28 couples joined together for the 6th Annual Valentine’s Day Group Wedding, a signature event organized by My Big Day Marketing & Events, with support from the City of Loveland. 12 of those couples were married for the first time.
Officiant Todd Harding wore a referee shirt to keep up with the hockey/sporting theme. Couples entered the rink on a red carpet isle while being serenaded by Branden Sipes, a favorite Colorado Singer-Songwriter-Guitarist. He played and sang music chosen and voted on by all of the participating couples.
The ceremony included thoughtful and loving readings, vows - both led by Todd Harding - and personally between each couple, a ring exchange, and a declaration of marriage.
Friends and family members of the couples watched and cheered from the stands. Many held lighted Eagles sticks, adding to the excitement and fun of the event!
After the ceremony, couples were ushered up to the Budweiser Balcony Bar where they were able to toast to each other and their guests. They also had plenty of opportunities for photos with the event photographer, Dick Knapp, and the special Valentine’s photo booth, complete with props. Valentina, Loveland’s Valentine Mascot, and Slapshot, the mascot for the Eagles’ hockey team, were also on hand for photos.
Family and friends were on hand to celebrate the couples.

My Big Day Marketing & Events is proud to be a part of this celebratory event. It is unique to Loveland and provides the community with an additional draw for all of its Valentine’s Day celebrations.
It’s an unwritten fact that you often don’t get - or want- repeat business when in the wedding planning industry. However, one couple who participated in the group wedding as a vow renewal couple has done so each year at the Valentine’s Group Wedding event (6 times)- proving that a wedding can provide repeat business, as long as love remains the focus and root of the event!

At Last! After two years of hiccups and postponements - one for Covid, and one for an unexpected Bundle of Joy, My Big Day Couple Kristin and Gary, finally said “I Do”!
Guests witnessed their vows and commitment to one another atop a mountain in the picturesque campus of the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park. Even though a pop-up thunderstorm threatened to dampen their ceremony, the happy couple didn’t even consider postponing their special day yet again.
Kristin and Gary chose a beautiful palette of greens and blues that blended well with their mountain backdrop.
Guests were served a wonderful assortment of appetizers and cool drinks before they dined on a delicious dinner of chicken and beef, provided by the YMCA’s culinary team.
A Music Plus Entertainment got the crowd up on their feet in celebration on the dance floor, and guests were entertained by a slideshow of beautiful photos, displaying special moments from Kristin and Gary’s relationship.
We were thrilled to be a part of this special day, centered around this precious little family. Congratulations to Kristin, Gary, and baby Zuri - may your new life together be full of many blessings and very few hiccups!
