Rain is Luck – Collins Wedding – 07.06.13

AED Couple : Adam & Kelly Collins
Married On : July 6th, 2013

Ceremony Venue : Cheesman Park (Denver, CO)
Reception Venue : Lala’s Wine Bar (Denver, CO)

The Touches We’ll Never Forget:
>Adam & Kelly had a wine-themed reception, which was so perfect to have at a wine bar!
>The couple had been in a long distance relationship for awhile, and right after the wedding were moving away from CO – but were finally going to get to be together.
>The wedding date was also a popular Quinceanera date, and the Pavilion at Cheeseman Park just so happens to be a very popular place to take pictures. We saw at least 10 different groups ‘crash’ the Pavilion while we were setting up to get their photos taken.
>The weather was looking great…until right before the outdoor ceremony. That’s when the wind picked up and the rain started pouring. But we got the wedding party and the bride to the Pavilion mostly dry, and the ceremony proceeded – beautifully!
>The dessert/candy bar was pretty great! There were all kinds of treats from Oreos, to caramels to gummy worms. Yum!
>The couple really, really likes their college – KU. They had newspaper confetti to throw during the ceremony, which is a KU tradition, and the ‘Groom’s cake’ was KU cupcakes.

Words from our client :Sarah and her team went above and beyond through my entire wedding planning process. As a bride it can be difficult to decide between what options are best when it comes to traditions vs personal preference for the big day. Sarah was very skilled at guiding but not telling when it came to helping me decide what my vision was. After the wedding my husband and parents and I talked a great deal about how happy we were to have Ansley Event Design as part of our wedding. She coordinated the entire rehearsal the night before, which was necessary with a large family like ours! We didn’t have to worry about setting up the decorations or making sure other vendors were where they needed to be on the wedding day, which was such a relief. They were also incredibly quick on their feet: when guests were arriving for the wedding a giant wind gust blew over a photo frame and shattered it, but Ansley Event Design swept it up and my guests didn’t have to step over glass. There was also a huge downpour of rain right when we arrived in the limo but I knew as soon as we pulled up that I didn’t have to worry because Ansley Event Design was two steps ahead with umbrellas they’d rounded up from guests. Her dad personally held my umbrella for me as I walked with my Dad to the pavilion! I highly recommend Ansley Event Design for Sarah’s incredible attention to detail, caring nature, patience and thorough follow through.” ~Kelly (Bride)
