Featured Bride Yours For Your Day
It’s my favorite time of the week, when I get to introduce a new lovely bride.  This week, it is a pleasure to introduce you to Angela Chavez.  Angela is engaged to Stephanie Flores and they are both busily planning for a November, 2015 wedding!

Happy Smiles!

Allow me to take a step back and share with you this couple’s romantic engagement!  Angela and Stephanie have been together for approximately 1 1/2 years and have been engaged for nearly two months now.  Stephanie planned a lovely surprise engagement for Angela.  In Angela’s own words:  “As I walked down the sidewalk at the Nature Center next to the river, I was greeted by our closest family and friends, pics of our journey and a musician that serenaded me.  Then she gave me my awesome ring!”  What a wonderful gift. Every girl should be so lucky as to have their fiance create such a wonderful memory; good job Stephanie!

Angela envisions a non-traditional fall wedding with pumpkin decor and a multitude of sparkly gold, pink, and red color accents.  The couple will celebrate their ceremony and reception at the Olde Towne Carriage House, which overlooks the Arkansas Riverwalk in the center of Pueblo.

Congratulations Angela and Stephanie. All life’s best to the two of you!

Back soon,
Shelley

Let’s talk about how these two gorgeous smiles first came together: Hanna and Eric met 2 1/2 years ago when they were both attending Oklahoma Christian University.
They both played soccer for OC and shared the same circle of friends. It didn’t take long for them to discover that they also shared many of the same interests.
They love all activities in the great outdoors(including skiing and snowboarding) and both love to travel.

Hanna & Eric

It was that love for travel that had them vacationing in Alaska this past August. While in Juneau with Hanna’s family, Eric proposed to Hanna in front of Mendenhall Glacier
(a glacier? Way to go Eric; quite the backdrop!)  From Hanna: “We spent the rest of our trip as an engaged couple doing everything from
whale watching, sea kayaking, deep sea fishing and hiking. I’d say it was the perfect trip!”
I’d say that I completely agree with you Hanna!

I'm Engaged!

While Hanna and Eric currently call Oklahoma home and both have successful careers there, they are excited to celebrate their wedding in Colorado next June!
Their rustic mountain wedding will be held at The Meadows at Marshdale in Evergreen.

 

 

Happy Couple!

 

Congratulations and best wishes Hanna and Eric!

Back soon,
Shelley

Meet: Christine Mauser

Featured Bride Christine Mauser
I’m so happy to introduce you to this week’s featured bride Christine Mauser.  Christine is engaged to Dan Higham and their wedding is scheduled for June 2015.  Christine, while originally from Colorado, currently resides in Daly City, California with Dan, his 7-year old daughter Bethany, and their cat Nessa.  This sweet little family came together in such a lovely way and I’m so honored to share their love story with you today.

Featured Bride Christine

 

 So how did they meet?  Well they met through work, but even more intriguing is the fact that Dan is from the UK and was still living there when they met.  Dan was hired by the same company Christine works for and had traveled to California to train for his new position.   After several lunches together at work, there was an impromptu date and a connection was made! What ensued was a long-long-distance romance that continued to thrive for a year and a half despite the distance!  They traveled Europe together a few months after meeting and then Dan made the trek to California every few months to visit with Christine. How romantic is that?

What a fun couple!
What a fun couple!

So what about the proposal you ask?  On a rainy day in October of 2013, while on a hilltop aside an old monastery and overlooking the picturesque Bavarian town of Bamberg, Germany, Dan proposed to Christine!  And if that wasn’t dreamy enough, Dan had something else up his sleeve when they later took in a concert.  The band they saw that night was a favorite of theirs called Rue Royale.  The band is a married couple with a British wife and an American husband; imagine that! Dan had gotten into contact with the band prior to the concert and they ended up dedicating a song to the newly betrothed couple onstage and served them champagne to boot!
(Sorry Dan, “boot” means car trunk in the UK, doesn’t it?)

Look at that cutie! What an adorable face!
Look at that cutie! What an adorable face!

Still one more piece of this delightful story, and that’s the part when everyone ultimately ended up on the same continent.  Dan and Bethany made the big move from the UK to California to join Christine in January of this year.

What a treat to have introduced you to this amazing bride and her new family!  We’re so thrilled and honored to have been asked to provide some of our eclectic rentals for their ceremony next June. Their rustic mountain wedding ceremony will be held next to the Blue River in Silverthorne, Colorado and I just know that their wedding day will be as enchanting and charming as their love story!

Congratulations Christine, Dan, and Bethany!
Back Soon!
