“It allowed us to accommodate all our family and friends, have freedom of design, and create something never before seen in Midland.”
Two French doors adorned with greenery and ivory blossoms led guests inside the dramatic tent, which was decorated with glistening crystal chandeliers suspended overhead – along with a one-of-a-kind display of vanilla florals and verdure. Lush draping enveloped the opulent setting, which showcased round tables decorated with one of three centerpiece designs: a low, antique-gold vase filled with flowers in neutral hues; a tall, slender gilt vase with the same floral varieties; and a towering tree featuring cascading amaranth and bullion-painted trunks. Attendees found their seats atop translucent acrylic chairs, and each place setting featured cobalt glassware, gilt flatware, and a circular menu card featuring the delectable fare selections in golden lettering. “The attention to detail throughout the reception truly blew me away,” affirms Jered.
Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed the couple’s signature drink, the “Colorado Bulldog” – the same cocktail they had on their first date in Steamboat. Later, slices were served from a towering seven-layer confection featuring the couple’s hand-painted motif in an ombré effect and cascading gold sugar roses, along with pizza wedges as a late-night snack. Midway through the celebration, the bride surprised everyone by changing into a custom-made, A-line short dress with an oversized bow in the back. She and her groom also emerged in LED light-up shoes, allowing them to dance the night away with loved ones who had been given flats as well as glowing glasses, necklaces, rings, and more. “We had people of all ages, from our friends to our grandparents and everyone in between, out on the dance floor for a full four hours,” illustrates the groom.
The couple was absolutely thrilled with how the day turned out. “It was such a spectacular night that Jered and I were so proud to be a part of,” says Kristin. Notes the groom: “The entire day was by far the best one of my life up to this point.”
