When we learned that Kayla and Alex had begun their journey together at a hot air balloon festival, we were so inspired to find a way to incorporate this fanciful image, as well as their love of travel, into their elegant Holy Ghost Church wedding, with the wedding reception at the Denver University Club. Our imagination ran free as we conjured up a dozen ways to bring this flight of fancy into the decor and overall feel of the wedding. The crowning jewel was a beautiful lighted hanging hot air balloon sculpture created by Scott Hittleman, of Lighting by Scott, which we hand draped with fabric in the couple’s colors of cream, purple, and gold, and festooned with flowers.
The balloon hung directly over the dance floor, and added such magic to the rich wooded atmosphere of the beautiful University Club. We added touches of whimsy throughout – vintage travel postcards we scattered on the dinner tables, vintage suitcases held the cake and escort cards, and hot air balloon cake pops complemented the cake table. Kayla herself made adorable hot air balloon centerpieces, which were filled with flowers by Love Letters Floral. We also wanted to honor Alex’s recent graduation from the firefighter academy and added something just for him – a getaway transportation in the form of a vintage firetruck! The couple had huge fun cruising downtown Denver in the open air cab!
