        Katie and Brandon described their vision for their wedding day as simple and laid back yet elegant, and that is exactly the vibe they captured at Evergreen Lake House in Evergreen, Colorado. Their attention to detail was spot on with the location, with a navy, gold, blush and ivory color palette, beautiful floral arrangements and bridesmaid’s dresses, a stunning wedding dress designed by Pronovias, and even some fancy footwear for the boys! The ceremony was performed by the groom’s uncle, Roy, which made it even more special, and 85 guests traveled to Colorado to witness Katie and Brandon finally become Mr. and Mrs. Brinton!

        A little backstory: Katie and Brandon met in high school and had their first date on October 4, 2003. They dated for six years before taking a four year break. Fate eventually brought them back together, and on October 4, 2015, Brandon popped the question next to Lake Laverne in Ames, Iowa – with their two dogs there to witness! You can see Katie and Brandon’s engagement session post here.

        Katie and Brandon’s favorite moment from their wedding day: “The end of the night when, as husband and wife, we went back to our hotel suite, drew a bath, and sat and shared each of our incredible versions of the day. Everything about the day was perfect and wonderful, it was so seemless, and more than I ever dreamed. There was something extra special about being able to share it all, at the end of the day, with my best friend.”
