Touch of Country – Stepan Wedding – 07.08.13

AED Couple : Mitchell & Vanessa Stepan
Married On : July 8th, 2013
Venue : Della Terra Mountain Chateau (Estes Park, CO)

The Touches We’ll Never Forget:
>The Bride & Groom, along with most of the wedding guests, were from Texas.
>The couple hired a lot of AED’s preferred vendors, yay!!
>It was so fun helping the couple with the decor design for their big day, and it came together just as planned.
>They had such a close, close family and it was very refreshing to see them all together.
>The weather!!! We delayed the wedding about 20 minutes while guests sat in the outdoor amphitheater covered with blankets and protected by umbrellas. The horse attached to the horse & carriage even got spooked when the caterer’s large umbrella fell to the ground from the wind. They had to do a few laps around the chateau to calm him down. But, as soon as Vanessa and her father turned the corner to make their way down the aisle, the sun came out and the weather was perfect throughout the rest of the day/night.
>The wedding party had so much fun with their introductions. It was hilarious to watch them all!
>The entire day and evening seemed like a true fairy tale and it was such a pleasure to work with Vanessa, Mitchell and their family throughout the planning process and to then make sure everything turned out perfect on their special day.
