Rocky Mountain bride
charleigh + Jeremy
Charleigh and Jeremy met in Dallas in late 2015. They played at the same volleyball courts and quickly became friends. Multiple times, Jeremy considered asking Charleigh on a date, but nerves got the best of him. They spent six months just hanging out and getting to know each other with no intention of anything happening. But, as the two spent more time together, they began to know they had something special. Charleigh started really caring about him and was charmed by his character and by seeing how he treated people. She finally confronted him about her feelings and in just a few months they were official! From there, things moved pretty quickly for these love birds. Jeremy moved to Denver for a job which helped solidify their relationship. Six months after the big move, Jeremy popped the question. He surprised Charleigh by flying the entire family down to Dallas and put together the most beautiful engagement party ever to celebrate their love! With roots in Colorado, the couple couldn’t think of a better place to say “I Do!” than on a crisp April 8th in Aspen.
Aspen is calling
Charleigh and Jeremy wanted a Bohemian mountain feel for their wedding. They wanted to keep the natural beauty of the mountains front and center so they accented their wedding with soft neutrals, blush pink and nude. From the florals, perfectly picked out by EKS Events, to the locally inspired dinner menu, the couple made the focus of the day around the amazing location!
the little white dress
“When I imagined myself getting married in the mountains, I knew I wanted a long sleeved wedding dress. I went to a & be, and it was the 5th dress I tried on! I pretty much knew right away when I put it on. It’s open back and sleek fabric is exactly what I was looking for.
the last dance
“We chose to do a ‘last dance’ of the night. It was after everyone had walked outside to light sparklers. It was just us, the musicians and the photographers left in the room. We danced to “Til Kingdom Come” by Coldplay (our very most favorite band). It was such a sweet intimate moment for us and we just danced close, cried and felt so happy and relieved. I remember thinking ‘Charleigh, don’t ever forget this moment. It is completely perfect.’”
Advice for rocky mountain couples
“Relax and soak up this incredible time in your life. It’s so special, unique, and beautiful. It will fly by. So enjoy every moment if you can. Also, get an incredible wedding planner. EKS Events made our engagement season so easy and fun. They take so much of the weight of your shoulders in what could be a very stressful time!!”
