40.3395° N, 105.5734° W Something very special happened on this spot!
If you look this location up in your smartphone, you will likely find a picture of love - the love between Jen & Antonio!
In reality, these are the coordinates for the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, and it was the beautiful site for the delightful reception celebrating the marriage of our clients, Jen and Antonio Garcia.
Jen is a close My Big Day friend, and we were ecstatic to be a part of her Big Day!
The day’s celebrations started in a cabin, aptly named “Blessings” on the YMCA site. Family members and the wedding party, met there to prepare for the nuptials at a local Catholic church, Our Lady of the Mountains, as well as to gather to surround both Jen and Antonio with love. There were pictures, primping, hugs, and mimosas.
After the beautiful ceremony, guests were invited to gather in the large ballroom on the YMCA site. There they were served delicious drinks at an open bar, as well as homemade appetizers and snacks while they waited for the wedding party to return from a quick after ceremony photo shoot.
The evening was full of good food, drink, and entertainment provided by Suit & Tie DJ services. The highlight of the evening had to be during the speeches when Maid of Honor and Sister of the Bride turned her speech into a rap, complete with background singers. The crowd was enthralled as she “rocked the mic like a vandal”!
Guests danced the night away, and made several trips to the photobooth provided by Blue Orchid Photography.
The decor that the bride and groom chose for their reception site was full of personal and familial touches. There was a memory table filled with photos of family members and important friends who had passed.
Their guestbook was a beautifully honed piece of wood with their wedding date and coordinates for guests to sign. They had a date jar and more photos of special dates in their relationship on display as well. It was very evident that the couple’s family and friends were a very important part of their relationship and life together.
We absolutely loved being able to be a part of this couple’s big day - the fact that Jen is a close My Big Day friend made it even more special and fun!
