Rustin + Shelley's Sunshine Ceremony in Fort Collins, Colorado


We are bringing you a whole lot of sunshine today with Rustin and Shelley's delightful grey and yellow wedding ceremony at Lory State Park (just outside of Fort Collins, Colorado). This bright and beautiful wedding ceremony was photographed by KDJonesphotography and Jon Christiansen.


The Vibe

With gorgeous views every way you look the South Eltuck Natural Area at Lory State Park did not disappoint. Rustin and Shelley wanted something classic but outdoorsy to match their personalities. The fun pop of color shone through as the day was full of sunshine and smiles.

The Look

The Bride wore a David's Bridal gown and the bridesmaids and grooms-lady's dresses were all from an assortment of boutiques. The groom wore a grey tux from Men's Warehouse, and his groomsmen followed suit ;). We loved the bright yellow ties the guys wore, so complimentary to the pure joy the whole bridal crew exuded. The bride's bouquet and groom's boutonniere were designed by Rowe's Flowers in Loveland, Colorado. The yellow sunflowers in the bride's bouquet were to die for!

The Extra Specials

Let me tell you this couple is in no short supply of family and friends. The excitement for these two was oozing from their bridal party! It was so fun to watch!

Speaking of family, the Officiant was Shelley's older sister, Ashley. Her eloquent words and closeness to the couple really made all attendees feel how tender yet playful this couples love is! We loved how Ashley brought giggles, and tears to all.

Sweetheart Weddings does something so fun with their Premier Package, the champagne toast was a great addition to seal the couple's ceremony. Shelley's younger sister made a memorable toast that the couple will cherish forever! One of our favorite snips of her toast was how she mentioned that Rustin called her everyday through the COVID-19 Pandemic, as she lived alone across the country. That really spoke to the companionship the family shares.

Ready for a jaw dropping exit? Here you have a 1933 Alvis. Vintage, Sexy, Fun - such a perfect addition to the end of a ceremony! Something we will not forget. Story goes, Rustin met the owner of this ride at work a few days before the wedding! They got to talking and the owner offered the car to be borrowed for the special day!

Thank you Rustin and Shelley for sharing your gorgeous wedding ceremony with us!

We wish you a lifetime of happiness and sunshine!
