Alysha and Brandon - December, 2018

Mother Nature was at her finest for Alysha and Brandon's wedding!  Coming from Florida, neither had ever seen snow before and were *hoping* for a winter wonderland backdrop... and they were NOT disappointed!!!   Their stop in Estes Park for their wedding at Sprague Lake was followed by a trip to the slopes and ski lessons!  Lots of firsts for this sweet couple - and lots of firsts to come as the new Mr. and Mrs!!!

Fall Weddings in Rocky Mountain National Park

Every year I find myself just swooning over our stunning fall colors in Estes Park and RMNP.  This year was no different... and Mother Nature spoiled us with an early fall (colors started changing in late August in some areas) and into the middle of October this year.  A special treat for all of our couples coming to Colorado for a taste of the changing aspens and the nip in the air!

Lauren and Brooks - September 2018

Ceremony and Reception Site - The Stanley Hotel, Estes Park, CO

MMIC Services - Officiating, Full Service Coordination, Bridal Floral and Event Styling/Decor

SUCH an amazing day... a stunning location (The Stanley Hotel) and an unforgettable family!! Lauren and Brooks were married on what turned out to be BOTH of their parent's 25th wedding anniversary!!  Their personalities were reflected in their wedding from the aspects of their ceremony to the details of their reception... their adventure and love for travel and for family.  The front lawn of the Stanley Hotel was the site for their ceremony, and the elegant Concert Hall hosted their family and friends.

Lucy and Alex - September 2018

Ceremony and Reception Site - The Estes Overlook ("The Knoll"), Estes Park, CO

There is just SOMETHING about a man in uniform... and a loving woman by his side!!  Lucy's dress was just out-of-this-world stunning with the vintage style, and these two were over the top fun to work with!!

MMIC LOVES to honor our military - and all of our first responders.  Our appreciation for their sacrifices for both the enlisted and their mate goes beyond words... and honoring their special day allows us to always go a little above and beyond to say THANK YOU for their service!!

Lexie and Adam - September 2018

Ceremony and Reception Site - The Ridgeline Hotel, Estes Park, CO

MMIC Services - PLATINUM PACKAGE - Officiating, Reception Coordination, Photography, Cake, Music, Video, Bridal Floral and Event Styling/Decor

 

Adam and Lexie were SO fun to work with - not only as clients but as people!! We had so much fun planning from start to finish... they were looking for an affordable but unforgettable wedding location... and one of our favorites was the Ridgeline Hotel!  We held their ceremony and reception (after an effortless flip by the hotel staff) and created an 'under the stars' experience - complete with a Smores fireside bar.  We swept them away before the wedding for the "First Look" (our PERSONAL favorite for stunning romantic photos) and afterwards for family and wedding party photos to the Estes Overlook, just a 2 minute drive!!  We had the opportunity to use our custom make Aspen Arch with some fun accents like moss, lanterns and lots of candles for their ceremony, and in turned used the same  backdrop for their cake cutting ceremony.  It was a beautiful evening under the stars...

Emily and Dane - September 2018

Ceremony Site - The Overlook Chapel - YMCA of the Rockies

Reception Site - Pine Room, YMCA of the Rockies, Estes Park, CO

MMIC Services - PLATINUM PACKAGE - Officiating, Reception Coordination, Photography, Cake, Music, Video, Bridal Floral and Event Styling/Decor

Such a fun wedding for a fun couple!!  Emily and Dane celebrated their Irish roots with a theme wedding honoring their family tartans.  We provided them with services from our Platinum Package, and they chose the beautiful YMCA of the Rockies as the place for their nuptials!  Dane, an avid home brewer, made all of his own beer for the reception and they gave bottles as their favors.  We created their floral designs based on the tartan colors with accent colors and had a TON of fun bringing in Irish touches - including hand made flowers with the tartan for a lasting keepsake!  Of course the bagpipes set off the theme, and with the stunning colors and picture perfect weather, it could not help but be a perfect day!!

Hillary and Justin - August 2018

Ceremony Site - Saint Malo Catholic Church, Allenspark, CO

Reception Site - Stanley Hotel McGreggor Ballroom, Estes Park, CO

MMIC Services - Coordination, Photography, Bridal Floral and Event Styling/Decor

Hillary and Justin were not only local to Colorado but Hillary served as the Wedding Coordinator AT the Stanley Hotel!  (Guess that is a pretty awesome sign when we are the ones she chose for her own wedding services!!)  Their ceremony was at the amazing St. Malo church in-between Estes Park and Allenspark, known as the "Chapel on the Rocks" and built in the early 1900s by a team of builders from Ireland.  Their reception was in the McGreggor Ballroom in the main hotel of the Stanley Hotel.   Purple/Wisteria was Hillary's color of choice... which is awesome since it is one of OUR favorite colors too!!  We adored the chair covers and table linens, and the bridesmaid's dresses were just yummie!!  Over-the-top floral decor with tons of mixed greenery made the colors jus pop.  It was a night of adoration and romance for sure!!

Mary and Edward - July 2018

Ceremony Site - Copeland Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park

Reception Site - Stanley Hotel Library Room, Estes Park, CO

MMIC Services - Coordination, Officiating, Photography, Bridal Floral and Event Styling/Decor, Music, Cake

Mary and Edward came to us from South Carolina and wanted a theme "Great Gatsby" Wedding.  What better place that the Stanly Hotel!  The Library is one of our favorite rooms, perfect for one of our intimate size wedding groups!  We decorated the room in one large family style table in true "Roaring 20's" fashion with lots of pearls, feathers, mercury candles and bling!!  Mary's bouquet was so much fun to create, using the same components with lots of ostrich feathers and unique blooms in her blush, sage and ivory tones!  Their ceremony was held on the shore of Copeland Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park.  Such a fun couple  and fun to create a theme wedding for them!!
