KAITLYN & KEVIN
They say rain on your wedding day brings good luck! Kaitlyn + Kevin had plenty of luck to share on their rainy September nuptials at the Vail Golf Club wedding island. But the weather couldn't dampen the mood for either of these love birds or their guests. As the rain came down, the groom headed to his first look with his bride on a pathway lined with aspen trees, and falling yellow leaves. With the mention of persistent rain on his wedding day, the groom responded, "You either have a good time or a good story. In this case we'll have both!" Guests gathered under umbrellas and watched this lovely couple say their I Do's on a secluded island on the golf course. As rain began to fall harder and harder during the ceremony, the couple couldn't stop laughing, and stopped to commemorate the moment by capturing a selfie of themselves and their guests in the ridiculous downpour. The bride, ever a positive person chalked the rain up to a visit from her mom, looking down on them from heaven and crying tears of joy. The ceremony and reception were styled to compliment the brilliance of the yellow aspen trees with bold jewel tones of burgundy dahlias, hues of fushia and orange roses, purple anemones and accents of thistle and sorbet garden roses thanks to Statice Floral Design. Following the rainy ceremony, guests headed in to the Gore Range Room for dinner and dancing, but not before warming up with spiked coffee, cider and hot cocoa before a harvest feast provided by Footers Catering. Just when the rain stopped, the party was just getting started, and guests crowded the dance floor and a few even ended up dancing on tables as DJ Ripm Entertainment’s DJ Danger lit up the night.
