A Glamorous Winter Wedding at The Terrace Gardens Event Center in Centennial, Colorado

Inspired by the winter season, Jessica Sullivan (28 and a teacher) and Tim Schoeninger’s (30 and a material coordinator) wedding embodied all the best

Inspired by the winter season, Jessica Sullivan (28 and a teacher) and Tim Schoeninger’s (30 and a material coordinator) wedding embodied all the best things about the chilly months. “We chose a simple color palette of white, nude and slate gray,” Jessica says. “We wanted a simple yet elegant feel to match the lightly falling and sparkling snow.” Abloom worked with the couple to create beautiful calla lily floral arrangements, which added a pop of green into the neutral color palette, and Two One Photography gorgeously captured all the details of the day. “St. Thomas More Catholic Church was a no-brainier, as it was the church where I grew up and into my faith,” Jessica says. “Tim and his family are also Catholic, so getting married in a church was never a question.” Since the church was naturally pretty, with shades of green and gold throughout the room, the couple decided to keep decor to a minimum. They continued their festive soiree at The Terrace Gardens Event Center in Centennial, Colorado, which they decorated with Christmas lights and calla lily centerpieces. The couple wasn’t afraid to add a little glamour to their look, though, with ornately beaded bridesmaid dresses, sparkly silver shoes and even gold table numbers. At the end of the night, Jessica and Tim just wanted their family and friends to have a good time. “We wanted our guests to have fun dancing, drinking, eating and socializing,” Jessica says. “We even bought an extra hour from the DJ and bar staff because our guests weren’t ready to end the party!”

Jessica wore sparkly silver, crystal-embellished Nina shoes. The shoes were the perfect complement to the other metallics at the wedding, such as the stylish bridesmaid dresses.
Jessica wore her hair in a low updo for the reception and exchanged her veil for a hair accessory. The white fabric flower-and-feather clip added some whimsical style to her winter-themed reception.
Jessica wore a mermaid wedding dress with a lace and tulle skirt. She wore a crystal shrug over the dress, which shimmered in the glow of the lightly falling snow. Her fingertip-length veil polished off her traditional look for the couple's Catholic ceremony.
The bridesmaids wore ornately beaded gray and nude dresses from Nordstrom Wedding Shop. Jessica loved how the chichi gowns added a little glamour to the wedding party’s attire. The bridesmaids completed their look with simple calla lily bouquets, which added a pop of fresh green.
Jessica and Tim exchanged vows at St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Centennial, Colorado. “This was a no-brainier, as it was the church where I grew up and into my faith,” Jessica says. “Tim and his family are also Catholic, so getting married in a church was never a question.”
The reception tables were covered in white linens topped with white calla lilies. The couple also added personalized Hershey's Kisses for guests to take home at the end of the night.
