Krystle and Ben shared their most special day with us on a snowy May day. While the weather was a bit of a surprise, Krystle and Ben embraced the snow covered ground and ended up with some gorgeous photos by Chris Mclaughlin Photography.
Read what Krystle had to say about her special day!
1. What was your favorite Mr. & Mrs moment?
Aside from saying “I Do”, due to a weekend of random rain/sleet/and snowfall, we had the chance to take our Bride and Groom photos in the back hills with snow all around us! I brought my mom’s wedge snow boots (just in case), and luckily I did. My husband tied those on me after the ceremony, and we trekked through the snow to have some fun, take some photos, and make some memories!
2. What was most important to you? Ceremony? Dinner? Dancing?
The most important part of our wedding day was the ceremony. Because we ended up moving indoors due to a crazy wet, snowy weekend, it turned into a really cozy and intimate time. Also, because we aren’t big into dancing, our reception was extremely relaxing and meaningful as we soaked up every hour talking with each other and with those we hadn’t seen in years!
3. What attracted you to The Manor House?
We were originally hoping for a tent reception, but when we drove up the hill to a gorgeous Manor House, we thought twice about the tent. When we went inside, we absolutely fell in love with the new ballroom and the history behind the venue. It was so cozy yet had plenty of space. Still, in the back of our mind, we were considering that tent at a different venue, but the biggest factor that pushed us over the edge was the backup ceremony location upstairs in case of inclement Colorado weather (as you can see by our “winter wedding in May” photos, it was a very very very good decision). Plus, I picked my dress before the venue, and my dress definitely fit the elegant feel of The Manor House. 😉
4. How did you pick your wedding date?
Saying “May First at the Manor” just rolled off the tongue so perfectly…..it had to happen.
5. Explain your theme/colors?
Our colors were blush, ivory, gold, silver, and grey (plus lots of candles) – to make for a very soft and romantic evening. I never had a wedding theme planned, but because we got engaged in Paris we ended up bringing a few Parisian elements into our wedding day that went really well with our romantic candlelit night. It was the perfect touch of DIY elements to put some of “us” into the day.
