We’re All About the Details!
The mermaid bride looked radiant in her blue and green sequenced bikini top with a matching swimming tail. Draped in a fisherman’s net, she wore a stunning headpiece of silver sea charms and holds a handmade pearl as her bouquet. Attending to our queen of the sea, were three captivating sirens wearing pearls and sea stars holding handmade seashell bouquets.
Her handsome pirate captain, sports a red and gold pirate coat, a gold rimmed captain’s hat, and saber. Me hearties attending him, was a coalition of scurvy pirate captains and a first mate, fresh off the high seas. The pirate spared no expense for his aquatic bride with a diamond ring sporting 13 diamonds in the engagement band, and 7 diamonds in the wedding band. A treasure indeed!
This nautical group gathered at the lush lakeside of Spruce Mountain Ranch in Larkspur, Colorado. The ceremony was held close to the water’s edge with the grand mountains behind them.
When it came time to feast, the table was covered in silver and gold. The crushed royal blue table cloth was adored with seashells, candles and a crowning centerpiece made of trumpeting seashells and coral.
After the grog and the grub, the merriment continued with everyone dancing an ancient sailor’s jig. Dessert was definitely a treasure. Vanilla and chocolate cupcakes topped with buttercream frosting and gold coins spilled temptingly out of a treasure chest. Finishing the look was all things pirate with heavy chains, a spyglass, and an antique gold compass. It was the perfect celebration for this land meets sea couple and their guests.
