While they met in Hawaii where they both had moved for work, Karen and Jon were both from Colorado and knew that’s where they wanted to get married. They had dreamed of an outdoor mountain ceremony full of fall color and Maroon Bells absolutely delivered! Karen and Jon incorporated lots of little details into their wedding day that captured their personalities, as well as old traditions! During their first look, Karen presented Jon with a lei as a nod to their life together in Hawaii. They ended their outdoor ceremony, officiated by each of their sisters, by smashing the glass. During their intimate dinner at Hotel Jerome, Jon’s mother gave a toast to the queen to honor their British heritage, and they of course ended the evening with the hora! Karen + Jon’s wedding day was the perfect combination of a laid back intimate wedding and tradition.
