Marry Me In Colorado is owned and operated by Kevin and Lorie Cooper, a husband and wife team married for 23 years. They started MMIC in 2001 after seeing a need for affordable alternatives to large scale weddings that still provide clients with fairytale memories. Whether you need individual services such as officiating, finding a justice of peace, floral design and wedding styling,  photography, or an all-inclusive package to make your planning simplified, we are your team!!

MMIC is an family owned company and NOT a conglomerate of individuals. You will NEVER be 'assigned' to complete strangers just before your big day. This means that from your initial conversation to your wedding day services to the follow up and delivery of your wedding photos you work with the same team of incredible, resourceful, creative, romantic and caring people to make your wedding experience into a lifetime of memories!
