A Colorado Cupcake Wedding Weekend

As some of you may know, one of my best friends and fellow blogger, A Colorado Cupcake got hitched this last weekend in beautiful Beaver Creek, Colorado! I stayed with the groom's family and you would never know that we had all met only a handful of times before.

The beautiful bride and her charming husband picked Beaver Creek for the mountain locale and to host a bevy of activities for their guests.

We started off the weekend with a Bridal Luncheon hosted by her future sisters-in-law, Suzi and Ashley.

Then it was on to the Rehearsal dinner hosted by the parents of the groom.

Where they had a S'more making bonfire in honor of the couple! (Note to self: learn how to make homemade marshmallows in mint and orange flavors.) (Actually on second thought, that might lead to a post-dodgeball losing White Goodman style weight gain. Effin' Chuck Norris.)

After the gorgeous ceremony at the Beaver Creek Chapel, the couple sped off into the sun(set) with their shabby chic "Just Married" sign.

Here's an up close of that shabby chic "Just Married" sign.

Then, the real party started! We have a tradition that we dance to Like A Prayer by Madonna at all of our fun, social events.

Here's the groom's cake. It's a Texas tradition, and unfortunately for me, the Aggie fan, it had to be Bevo.

David and Chelsea have both been great friends to me and a true blessing to have shared the first day of the rest of their lives as Mr. & Mrs. Ellis. They have a great support network and I am so glad that these two lovebirds found each other amidst every other guest.


  1. Awe I'm gonna cry! What a lovely recap, I want to live in that long weekend! Love you ana banana!<3

  2. Did I hear correctly? Did you tell Chelsea that you feel you should take a pregnancy test after dancing with me?! Haha. If nothing else, these sweet moves are guaranteed to make you go sterile . . . hehe.
