A Romantic Woody Creek Wedding


Congratulations to Kate Purnell and Kris Good, married August 16, 2013.

woody-creek-wedding-1How the couple met and got engaged: We met on a blind date.  Kris proposed at the restaurant where Kate told him she had fallen in love with him shortly after they moved into their first house.  Her parents were in town visiting.  It was very romantic and much celebrating ensued.

They chose Aspen for their wedding destination because?  Kate grew up in Aspen and always knew she wanted to get married in her backyard.  The wedding day was a long time dream come true.

Wedding Ceremony/Reception venue: The bride’s parent’s backyard and childhood house in Little Texas, Woody Creek on the river.


Wedding Flowers:   Created by Harrington Smith.  Bouquet was a massing of ranunculus, dahlias, zinnia, coxcomb, gerbera daisies in late Summer tones of yellow, tangerine, and vibrant red.   Centerpieces: Variety of different centerpieces including monochromatic, monofloral arrangements, then succulents, billy balls, and textured elements with brightly colored floral embellishments.


Favorite moments from the wedding day:

-the hustle and bustle of wedding set up in my backyard

– how I didn’t have to worry about anything because my wedding planner had it all planned & organized

-the last dances

-the flowers and all the little details

-dancing with my sisters as we got ready

-walking/laughing down the aisle with my dad

-the song my Dad chose for our first dance and how my mom and sisters came to join

-Molly’s speech

-the photo booth with best friends

-a lifetime of friends and family from the community and afar were present


Special touches incorporated into the ceremony and reception:

-Stranahans Colorado whiskey in a custom box for our ten year anniversary at the ceremony and then copious amounts of whiskey in personalized tumblers during the ceremony.

-having a close family friend Tim McFlynn officiate, his daughter and my dear friend Abby Gordon-Farleigh participating as well as my friend and spiritual guide Amy Harris giving a blessing.

-Mad Libs RSVP cards from guests on display.

-the Sistah’s rings I gave my mom and sisters as bridesmaids gifts
