Kitzel & Kendall

May 6

Lyons, Colorado


Q & A with the Bride & Groom:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We wanted a venue that provided space for our guest to have small gatherings wherein they could catch up and share stories. But we also wanted to be able to have an indoor/outdoor option that accentuated the beauty of where we live.

 Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

Saying our vows under an umbrella as sprinkles fell around us

The groomsmen shaking things up with chivalry as they gave their coats to the bridesmaids.

The toasts from my Best Man and Cali – one of Kit’s bridesmaids.

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

Get as much of the big stuff out of the way early, and as you get closer to the date delegate so that you can be present with each other and family to enjoy the celebration. You can plan all you want but in the end, hold it loosely so you can enjoy the day whatever may come. Probably good advice for a marriage too.

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

Kendall: I could not get through my vows without crying and for all attempts to keep it together I just let the tears come and smiled my way through it as Kit tried not to cry, looking into my water-filled eyes. Plenty of tears and laughter throughout.

Kit: Saying our vows and holding hands was a moment I will always remember. Looking into his eyes knowing that this was it for the rest of our lives and vowing to create a beautiful partnership through all the good and the bad is something I hold so close to my heart. Our first dance “When It Don’t come Easy” by Patty Griffin was the epitome of what our marriage is and continues to become. He is my best friend and I couldn’t imagine life without him!!
