Do we have the most gorgeous brides or what?!

Meet Ina!

Ina came to Something Blue searching for the perfect gown for her Summer wedding in Colorado and she nailed it with this Essense of Australia dress!

The color, the illusion back, the side cutouts...swoon!

Ina turned to local florist Pink Posey Design to create her gorgeous bouquet. It fit in perfectly with her mountain top wedding!

In memory of her dad, she had a charm wrapped around her bouquet so he could still walk her down the aisle.

Ina and her hubby Kyle were married at Sapphire Point Overlook in Breckenridge.

She was walked down the aisle by both of her brothers - so sweet!

Let's talk scenery - the ceremony backdrop was so incredible, you have to see it for yourself...

After the ceremony, guests headed to Breckenridge Distillery for dinner and drinks!

We're drooling over that gorgeous cake and all those barrels!

The whole setting was dreamy.

We weren't lyin, right?? Such a perfect reception spot!

Let's get to know the newlyweds a little better!

How did they meet?

"We met in 2007 right after I graduated HS, he went to Merrillville, I to CP. I had a Fourth of July party at my house that year and my best friend was dating one of his best friends so they came to the party. My mom (if you know her you understand) pointed him out...something like "oh that boy in the blue shirt is cute" and made us take a picture together (yes we still have the picture). We joked after that night about the boy in the blue shirt being my boyfriend. A week after we went on our first date and started dating ever since then!"

STOP that is actually so cute! Mom always knows best!

When Kyle was ready to pop the question, he made sure to make it memorable!

"Kyle proposed to me at Sharkys beach in Venice FL. I was on top of the paddle board (yes in the ocean) he said "I think I see a sharks tooth" came back up and had my ring. I definitely had a feeling it was going to come soon, surely not in that manner but it was perfect!"

Let's talk about our favorite subject - wedding gowns.

"Well I had no expectations other than the countless hours of watching say yes to the dress everyday. But the experience at SBB was amazing. I met Celine, who I'm pretty sure is my long lost sister. She completely understood me, knew exactly the style I was looking for. The staff was extremely friendly and even let me book an accessory appointment with my nieces where I tried on my sample dress and got to play dress up with them."

How did she know her dress was "the one"?

"It was a hard choice because there was so many beautiful gowns and honestly they all looked soooo amazing. I never had that bride moment but the dress I chose was the 1st one I tried on, everyone had agreed that it was the top contender and I kept comparing all the other dresses to that one. It really wasn't until my dress fitting that I felt that surge of emotion that I was looking for and I'm so happy with my decision. The dress was perfect for our wedding!"

We agree!

I asked Ina to tell us all about her planning process..

"The planning process is stressful don't get me wrong but I had a wedding planning who kept me on track which made my process a lot easier. My favorite part of planning was picking my vendors. My least favorite part was planning everything from a different state because there were so many unknowns."

Finally, the wedding day had arrived!

What was Ina's favorite part of her big day?

"Hands down my favorite moment of our wedding was listening to my husbands vows. I'm pretty sure he had every single person crying."

Now that it's all said and done, is there anything she would change?

"I would say don't stress but that's inevitable. So enjoy the stress, just know at the end of the day everything will come together perfectly. The only thing that truly matters is the moment you share with your husband. I swear no body cares what color your linens are or what centerpieces you picked! They'll even forgive you if they don't like your food ;)"

Any final advice??

"My advice, keep it simple, small and simple! Having a small destination wedding with my closet friends and family was the best choice we could have made!"

Thank you so much, Ina and Kyle, for sharing your gorgeous wedding with us!! We are so happy for you both and wish you nothing but happiness in your future together!
