A Destination Wedding, Close to the Heart

In the words of Mindy Weiss, "There is nothing more important about your wedding, than staying true to the two of you."  We cannot agree more.  For a day that will be cherised for the rest of your lives, it should be unconditionally genuine.  To us, the most genuine parts of our relationship's are the memories created together.  Often times those memories are created away from home, (not to say the best aren't sometimes created right in the living room; "Hey sweetie, your shampoo, conditioner, and body wash are spread out covering spiders.  DONT LIFT").

However, home is home.  Your everyday, your kitchen and your makeup studio.  A wedding should feel like a vacation and a celebration.  What better way to clebrate than at your favorite dstination spot.  With all the breath taking wedding venues around the world it is nearly impossible to choose, so for our first destination wedding post, we felt it was only right to choose somewhere close to home.  Colorado for the win-every time.

Feeling The Chill Of Winter… And Embracing It!

Here are some GLE tips on how to embrace the winter climate, straight from the Rocky Mountains! Bundle up! Whether it’s for yourself or advising your guests, be sure to layer up and keep warm. We love when couples make the best of the brisk weather by incorporating a garment that’s cohesive with their color scheme and aesthetic. Get toasty! Offering pre-ceremony beverages is a sure way to keep guests bodies and mind off the chillier weather. Snuggle up! Offering blankets and heaters aren’t only weather-appropriate, they also offer a unique décor factor your guests will be sure to thank you for! Stay warm out there!!
