Danielle & Mike: A Lavender-Filled Summer Wedding in Colorado
Photos By Happy Confetti Photography

Some girls dream of the dress, others the setting. For Danielle, it was the shoes. Before Mike, her longtime boyfriend, even popped the question, she had already picked out the exact pair in which she would walk down the aisle—her mother’s lavender-colored suede bridal sandals, which she had coveted since she was a little girl.
Sparked by the fabulous secondhand footwear, a lavender theme emerged. The fragrant herb could be found in every detail of the day, from the bride’s budded peony bouquet, fashioned by Kimball Floral, to the ombré naked cake, created by the soulful Sugar Bakeshop. The lavender’s lightness enhanced the summery, natural atmosphere of the event, which took place in Denver, Colorado, at the Washington Park Boathouse, an outdoor pavilion surrounded by Victorian-style flowerbeds.
“It was a simple yet elegant affair,” said the couple’s photographer, Melissa O’Connell of Happy Confetti Photography. “It was just full of sunshiny goodness and happiness.”
