Beautiful Denver Wedding at Grant Humphrey's Mansion (8)

Today’s gorgeous real wedding comes to us from Alexandra of Evermore Creation, based in Denver, CO! Here’s Alexandra to tell us more:

Steve and Erika met for the first time up in Fort Collins over a decade ago. Their story starts out as many love stories do- they were just friends at first. They actually had a class together by chance, an American Lit class…recognizing each other after their mutual close friend Tory had introduced them just a few weeks before. They would sit next to each other, and Steve would draw Erika his famous mazes, or funny cartoons of their friends and room-mates.

The petals will eventually fall, often together like snowflakes, marking its end in dramatic fashion.
