A gorgeous outdoor ceremony with stellar mountain views is followed by an elegant rustic reception with custom runners, wine bottles, chalkboards, mason jars, vintage frames and wine barrel details. Their wedding palette of dusty aqua, ivory, pewter and touches of green perfectly complemented their rustic elegance theme. Emily's gorgeous lace gown from the Allure Bridal Collection looked stunning along side Danny in his Marine Dress Blues. 


 

 

 

The Arch of Sabers

 

The saber arch is a symbolic act that ensures the newlywed couple safe passage into their new life together. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the ushers line up on either side of the aisle. The head usher's commands "Draw sabers," and they raise their blades, edge up, into the air, carefully forming an archway. The newlyweds walk through the archway, and at the command "Return sabers", the sabers are withdrawn.

 We love this Glamorous, Vintage, Old Hollywood theme wedding – brooch bouquet, red lips, stunning up-do, end-less champagne, classic all white flowers to enhances the charm and a photo booth complete with gold sequin draping!

We asked Michael with Pure Sounds Productions, what he remembered most about working with Lauren and Matt on their Wedding day...
"The thing that sticks out most to me from their wedding was the surprise Father-Daughter dance I put together with Leona (Mother of the Bride). The songs were "Here Comes the Sun" by The Beatles, "Itsy Bitsy Spider" by Little Richard, "Doin' the Do (7" Radio Mix)" by Betty Boo, then back to "Here Comes the Sun" for the finish."

September 11th,  2014 in the middle of the night the rain began to fall. Flood sirens went off and our intimate mountain town became isolated by the flood waters. 

 

On September 12th at 10:12am, a Lionscrest Staff member reached out to the Lyons Fire Protection District to gain an understanding of the Town's conditions. She was told to relocate their weddings. Our next event was less than than 36 hours away. Little did we know that after 19 years of weddings, the next three weeks would be some of the hardest times this family owned business would face.

 

Then, on October 1st, we received the call we were so waiting for. We were granted permission to reopen. Lionscrest Manor, which sits on top of a mountain and has it's own well water, was left relatively unaffected by the flood waters. With passes, our couples were allowed to, once again, tie the knot.

 

On October 4th, Lionscrest Manor was able to host it's first wedding. Krista, a Coloradan, was set to marry Samuel from the United Kingdom. After just over a year of planning, their dream to marry in Lyons, Colorado became a reality.
