“Love, Laughter and Happily Ever After”
What better day to have a wedding than July 4th? Matt and Emily are two of the most genuine people you will ever meet. They both are very transparent and very loving to everyone around them. Even during her wedding, one of the most stressful days of your life, Emily was loving and was looking out for everyone around her. The mom in her came out and even though this day was about her, she made sure everyone around her was good also. The ceremony was held at the Garden of the Gods Resort…talk about gorgeous. This resort is a top destination wedding venue and the pictures don’t do it justice. The scenery is breathtaking…which is why so many people have their weddings there. What is better than beautiful scenery? A beautiful bride to accompany it. Emily was nothing short of breath-taking. Her dress was made by her mom, Debbie, and was stunning. The detail that went into it was amazing. If you didn’t know, you would have thought the dress was bought at a boutique and that they had paid some hefty money for it. A lot of the details at the wedding; the flower headpieces, the basket, the pillow holding the rings, the dresses, etc… all had some special meaning or were put together by Emily, Debbie and Elizabeth, Emily’s Sister.
Keilahna, The Maid of honor, is Emily’s youngest and is 13 years old. I had met her once before but when I saw her at the resort she looked a little tried…come to find out in all the hustle and bustle she hadn’t eaten yet. YIKES!!! Emily ordered a platter of food and some champagne (not for the younger girls of course) and when it came into the room, Keilahna lit up like a Christmas tree! She was so funny and full of life. You could see through all her expressions and reactions that she was so excited for this day, not only for her mom, but to have another loving father in her life. Matt is nothing short of amazing. He cares deeply for Emily and her family. When Matt caught the first glimpse of Emily, I know his world was in slow motion. His emotions overtook him and I was nervous he had stopped breathing at the site of his new bride. There is something about the way a husband looks at his bride for the first time in her dress, and it was nothing short of inspirational.
CONVERSE!!! What better way to walk down the aisle than in style and not have your heels dig into the grass?!? When I saw the Converse I knew it was going to be a great wedding. I have numerous pairs of my own and I wished I would have worn mine. They all had hints of the teal/blue and were awesome with the dresses and brought everyone’s personality to life.
This lovely couple, Emily’s parents, were celebrating their 36th wedding anniversary on July 4th so Matt and Emily had a special table and cake for them at their reception. The way that Dave looked at Debbie was inspirational and it was so neat to see the two of them interact after so many years of being together. Congratulations to both the happy couples!
Thank you or taking the time to read about this amazing wedding and congratulations to Matt and Emily on your wedding. You two will have a beautiful life together.
