I first met Elizabeth when she was a bridesmaid in Jen & Cyrus' wedding last August. I was immediately struck by the close-knit bond the women shared with one another. They were—and are—truly friends for life. A few months later, the same crew of bridesmaids assembled again, this time for Elizabeth to marry Jake, the love of her life, on the evening of May 16th, 2015, at Calamigos Ranch.
With a history in event planning and many close friends offering their talents and services, Elizabeth made sure no detail was left unnoticed. One friend poured her vision and creativity into the many flower arrangements. Another friend brought his artistic vision to create the sense of space, even lighting scented candles that matched the mood of the occasion. The mother of the bride delicately hand wrote all the name cards. The veil was trimmed with lace from her mother's own wedding dress. Cactus Cooler (Jake's favorite!) refreshed guests during cocktail hour and a tree filled with butterflies (reminders of Elizabeth's father, who passed away earlier last year) greeted guests as they transitioned to the reception.
Jake and Elizabeth, thank you for your joy and love for one another! I am so excited for your life together as you show your friends and the world what real, Christlike love in marriage looks like!
