Jasmine and Christy flew out to Denver, CO from Ohio for their destination elopement due to their shared love for the Red Rocks area. Christy finds joy while being in the mountains, though Jasmine is more of a beach person. That's why their honeymoon took place in San Diego — so they could enjoy both the mountains AND the ocean.
When Christy and Jasmine first began dating, it was a relationship they wanted to let grow before announcing it to the world and, most importantly, Jasmine's son. So they would say “Squirrel” to one another in place of “I Love You” until they felt the time was right. At their wedding, they had Shannon with Olive and Poppy Floral Design incorporate two squirrels into their bouquets. D'aww.
Their day was filled with many personal touches including the colors tangerine and pink. Their limo was bright pink, as were Jasmine's shoes. Christy had tangerine shoes as well as pops of tangerine in her bouquet. After their courthouse ceremony, they stopped at Voodoo Doughnuts in Denver for some treats. Their shop is located along Colfax, which was celebrating Pride Week from the festivities the weekend before. Once they got into Voodoo, Jasmine surprised Christy with Bride-shaped doughnuts.
They ended the night running into some goats walking along the road, which the owner ever so kindly let us snap a few photos with before they attempted to eat Christy's bouquet. Y'all will love this one…
