I am so excited to share this post with you! When Stephanie & Cory decided to book us for their wedding at the Chatfield Botanic Gardens we were extremely excited. They are both designers, so we knew this wedding would be over the top beautiful, and we were right. Everything about this wedding was made by them. From the truffles that the guests received, to the 1000 paper cranes, these two spent a ton of time and effort designing their dream wedding. Everything about this wedding was beautiful and we were so blessed to be a part of it! They are such an amazing couple, so sweet, and so in love! I absolutely love their story and wanted to share it with you all 🙂

“We met at the Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant 8 years ago while both studying at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. I was a hostess, Cory a busser….and well the rest is history. We both were design students and that sparked the interest. Since graduating in 2007, we both moved to San Francisco to pusue careers in design and architecture. It has been a very awarding journey as we have been able to experience different cultures, people, and perspectives in such a diverse city. We have grown closer together in these explorations of new things and ideas, food and environments. We have a love of food and culture, both internationally and local. We strive to soak up as much as we can in our early years here in an international city and hope that it will spark many adventures abroad. Worldly views and cultures is a great passion of ours and we hope to be able to travel much in the years to come before starting a family of our own someday. ”

Now for the photos 🙂
