Wedding Recap

It isn't often that we post twice in one day, but then again, it's not often you get married either!
So, without further adieu, photos from Katie and Brian's big day, courtesy of the amazingly talented Hillary Maybery and Kristin Cheatwood.

First, the details: the dress, Monique Lhuillier and the shoes Manolo Blahnik. To die! I had a monogram with Katie's new initials and the wedding date made, and then it was sewn inside the skirt of her dress. She is planning on selling the dress (any takers??) so she will be able to keep this as a memento. As for the shoes, I am sure you will be seeing them in upcoming "What I Wore" posts!

Hello gorgeous! Doesn't this remind you of Sex and the City (the movie) when Carrie is modeling the dresses for the Vogue shoot? Work it sister!

Katie and Brian did their reveal prior to the ceremony. Hillary found a beautiful bunch of aspen trees for the photos. Of course the groom had to have a little pop of color as well with these Jack Spade socks!

After the reveal the bridal party met in a field next to the church. We were even surprised by a small snake, which the 2nd photographer, Kristin Cheatwood, was not so excited about! I don't think she will be using this location again anytime soon! The bridesmaid dresses are Alfred Sung and are made of silk dupioni. 

The ceremony was held at the Our Lady of the Snows Catholic church, which our dad actually built. The Mini Fashionista made a grand entrance by running down the aisle towards her "daddy".

Katie and Brian left the ceremony in this fantastic old car and were driven to the base of the River Run where everyone took the gondola to the Round House, a historic lodge on the mountain. 

At the roundhouse we enjoyed cocktails and a fantastic view of the Wood River Valley. 

The reception was held at The Valley Club. Katie planned the flowers, the table linens and all the other details perfectly, including a very cool Jets groom's cake.

After dinner we got down to some serious dancing and "photo boothing"!

Katie and Brian departed under a sea of sparklers, the perfect ending to a perfect day! Now they are enjoying themselves on the beaches of Bali. If I didn't love them, I might hate them just a bit right now!
