Who's using a still-in-development wedding venue and is getting a little nervous that the venue might not be ready in time for their wedding? I see those hands. Take reassurance from Myfanwy and Christina's wedding. They selected the new Space Gallery in Denver for their venue, and just a couple months before the wedding… it was still pretty much cement and pipes. And look how awesome it turned out!

The minimalist gallery let the rest of the wedding shine with an indoor/outdoor ceremony (thank you, garage doors!), bits of orange everywhere (including actual oranges in the flower vases), DIY felt owls as favors, and a raffle for a trivia game.

But my favorite part is hands down the ladies' ridiculously cool photo wall. Christina and Myf had asked their guests to give them a photo of what they thought love looked like, and the couple displayed the photos on a huge gallery wall with a sign that read "What Love Looks Like."

  2. Yay!! Thanks so much for the feature!! I absolutely adore these two– and so happy to see their day featured! They had some awesome ideas for engaging guests– and the happiness that day was overwhelming! ­čśë

  3. OMG that DRESS with the PETTICOAT! I love it! And love how the other bride picks up the orange colour theme with her shoes subtly peeking out the bottom of her long dress.

    This wedding rocks!
