plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

I really appreciate a well done wedding theme, and it’s even better when a couple really puts their lives and personalities into a theme, making it uniquely theirs. Stephanie and Cory did just that, incorporating a subtle travel theme without overwhelming their guests with details that weren’t really related to them. In addition to that, their unique bridal party attire really makes this wedding stand out: Two-tone dresses for the bridesmaids and earthy feeling bouquets, and bow-ties and dapper hats for the groomsmen. All of this gives the wedding a laid-back, personal feel, which is so refreshing.

From the Photographer:

Stephanie and Cory wanted to add in decor and flavors from each phase of their lives together; Colorado (where Stephanie is from), California (where they currently live) and finally Thailand (home of their favorite food). They have traveled around the world throughout their relationship and wanted to include a “travel theme” without incorporating the traditional decor and inclusions that you think of with travel themed weddings. Since Stephanie is an interior designer and Cory is a landscape architect, they were able to do this through DIY centerpieces, organic and eco-friendly decorations, plus handmade truffles from the bride.
