Caitlin and James brought a personal touch to just about every part of their wedding day. During cocktail hour, their guests enjoyed jalapeño-grapefruit margaritas with colorful vintage cocktail stirrers. Festive Mexican flags hung over the tables and delicate vintage china adorned each place setting. The music video James made special for Caitlin (starring none other than James and a green screen) had guests absolutely rolling with laughter! Their creative spirits and love for one another were evident in each detail and moment. We are so happy we were able to be a part of this unique celebration! Congrats to these two!

James and I met in 9th grade at lunch. Throughout high school we became close friends, which eventually turned into deeper feelings and we started dating toward the end of our Junior year of high school (April 1st, 2004) and have been together ever since. I think we have both always known we’d be together forever, which is why we were never in a big hurry to get married.
We decided to get married in Colorado because that is where our family and closest friends live. We wanted a beautiful location, but also as many of the people who had been there for us throughout the years to be there with us.
Our vision for our wedding shifted a lot throughout our engagement. Originally we wanted something really casual and laid back, but quickly realized just how much work weddings are and got realistic about how much work we wanted to go the day-of. We also are quite sentimental and wanted to get married on our 11-year anniversary – April 1st. Being early spring in Colorado, the weather could have been anything, so we needed a place that could accommodate sun or snow.
We originally looked into the Manor House because they offered both outdoor and indoor options, allowing us to have a backup plan. When we visited the site, we realized how absolutely stunning the location was, and were so touched by how helpful they were. Since we live out of state, we had to do all of our venue tours in one weekend, and the Manor House was our last stop. Once we left, we know it was “the one!”
Throughout our wedding planning experience, the staff at the Manor House was so unbelievably helpful, always answering our emails and questions, available to talk on the phone, and provided us with all the information we needed. Planning a wedding from out of state was a bit of a challenge, but by the time our wedding rolled around, we were not nearly as stressed as we should have been.
The staff made our wedding day go by so smoothly, always knowing what was next on the schedule and keeping the day moving along. We really felt like they accommodated and cared about the personal touches we wanted, making sure they knew what decor we wanted in specific places. We also stayed at their guest house with a few close friends, which was such a great way to finish off our wedding. ~ Caitlin
