Springtime Purple Hues

Katelyn and Colby’s dream was a Spring wedding with rustic elegance, purple hues, and spirited celebration! Their dream came true when they tied the knot on a gorgeous April afternoon at Della Terra.


Katelyn and Colby hail from Oklahoma, and wanted to share the mountain experience with all of their guests. From the moment we met them we loved them, and every minute of their destination wedding was filled with fun and celebration.


During the ceremony, Colby’s reaction to his bride coming down the aisle left no dry eye in the house. These two families love each other dearly, and all of the parents were a part of the planning process. The joy of their families joining together through their children was palpable.


A classical guitarist played their ceremony music, and as a symbol of their connected love and support, Colby and Katelyn did a ceremonial planting of aspen trees during their wedding ceremony. After being pronounced husband and wife, the newlyweds signed their marriage license, toasted over champagne, and laughed their way through a rose petal exit. At the end of the petal toss, they hopped on the most adorably decorated golf cart and were whisked off to take some stunningly romantic photos together.


Katelyn’s inspiration in her decor was rustic elegance, and she opted for shades of purple and grays in every element of the wedding day. From the bouquets to the dinner table linens, the guest book to the wedding cake, Katelyn’s theme was woven together beautifully.


Our favorite highlights from the day included:


  • Colby’s Jon Deere groom’s cake, a perfect piece of his personality and their life in Oklahoma!
  • During the reception guests were treated to a caricature artist who sketched fun portraits for all of the guests who participated
  • Katelyn and Colby had a fairly large wedding party with their closest friends and family. They took the time to cherish the morning with their bridesmaids and groomsmen during getting ready time, and had the opportunity to take some fun and stylish portraits together later that afternoon.
  • At Della Terra, you’re almost always guaranteed some wildlife wedding crashers. Look closely in a few of Katelyn and Colby’s sweetheart photos to see some wild turkeys who photo-bombed their sweetheart shoot!


Katelyn and Colby, your love was evident through your joyful smiles every minute of your wedding day. Congratulations and best wishes!
