A beautiful garden wedding in Denver, Colorado

How do you have a simple, intimate wedding that is also beautiful? The secret to achieving these often conflicting desires is to hire a talented wedding planner like Brynn Swanson at First Look Events! Sue and Mike have four children between them who are teenagers on up. They’re down to earth and not into a big fuss, but they still wanted to have a small ceremony and easy reception to bring together their families and friends to celebrate their wedding. They chose a pocket park in their newer Denver development, at the end of their block, literally four houses away! Yet with some creative inspiration, this park transformed into a beautiful outdoor ceremony and a farm-to-table style tented dinner. Lush flowers and greenery and earthy wood furniture and decor lent a natural rural feel to this city location, and the park felt miles away from its neighborhood surroundings.
