Saraguilherme feat

"The uncertainty of a destination wedding can be extremely nerve-racking,” admitted today’s featured Allure Bride, Sara. "Early in our engagement, my husband, Guilherme, and I fell in love with the idea of an intimate ceremony in the Rocky Mountains with our immediate family. With our time frame of just three months we quickly made arrangements and made little room for a back-up plan.

"October quickly came, along with Estes Park’s first snowfall just two weeks before our big day. I was sure that our beautiful fall ceremony would turn into a miserably cold disaster. We all frantically prayed for sunshine and warm weather. Before we knew it we were on a plane to Denver, not sure what to expect when we landed.

"Right when we landed we were greeted with sunny skies and a high of 70! Everything was coming together so perfectly!
I will never forget how calm the day of our wedding was. We both got to enjoy a slow morning with our families, not stressing about any last minute details.

"Our photographer, BJ Matthews, flew in from Little Rock, AR, and met us at our cabin just a few hours before our ceremony. BJ was the best! He was so flexible and up for an adventure! We spent the afternoon exploring Rocky Mountain National Park and stopping for photos at all the gorgeous lookouts.

"The intricate design of my Allure Bridal gown stood out so beautifully against the mountain backdrop! It brought the perfect amount of elegance and bohemian feel to my whole bridal look! Once we finished our portraits we headed to Sprague Lake where we said 'I do' in front of our closest family. The best part of our wedding day was getting to make memories with each person who was with us on our big day. We are so glad we took the risk of planning a destination wedding. All the anticipation was worth our unforgettable wedding week with the most special people.”
