Jenni and Brett's wedding at the Broadmoor on Memorial Day weekend was nothing short of an elegant and heartfelt affair, as is so evident from the touching images from Jared Wilson Photography. From a sweet and emotional 'first look' to the decadently adorned Broadmoor ballroom, we are seriously smitten with this LWD bride's wedding. Jenni found her ivory trumpet gown by Matthew Christopher Bridal Couture (aptly named the 'Moet' gown) at Little White Dress Bridal Shop. She described to us how the gown fit into her vision for her big day and told us about her emotional experience finding The Dress.

Did your choice of the Broadmoor for your venue affect your decision on the gown? How did your gown tie into the overall vision for your wedding?
Since we had already chosen the Broadmoor for the venue, I knew that I wanted something that would blend in with the beauty of the Broadmoor, but also have a look of its own. I also sort of knew that the color scheme would include deep reds, ivories, golds and perhaps some brown so I was leaning towards an ivory dress, not a white one.
How did you feel in your dress on your wedding day?
Since I went with a form-fitting, trumpet style dress, I was nervous about my figure how I would feel, but I felt very comfortable and beautiful. The seamstress had put extra boning in the sides to help the fit so sitting down was a bit of a challenge, but I learned that there isn't really any time to sit on your wedding day...so that was not a problem. In addition to the dress, I wore cowboy boots. I knew trying to deal with sandals or high heels on this important of a day, would not work...I am not the most graceful person. The dress length worked perfectly with the boots showing just a hint of the toe as I walked and danced.
Thank you, Jenni, for sharing your wedding day with us, and thank you to Jared Wilson Photography for the beautiful images!
