Jenny White (31 and a kindergarten teacher) and Mark Magee (35 and a middle school dean of students) were inspired by the fall season for their intimate wedding. They used a green, brown and orange color palette to accent their love for the outdoors. However, their lush bouquets were very colorful with red daisies, orange roses, white stephanotis, green hypericum berries and yellow dahlias. Most of the decor of the day (including the chuppah) were handmade by Jenny and Mark for a personalized feel. They had a traditional Jewish ceremony along Clear Creek in downtown Golden, Colorado, at The Golden Hotel. The sun set behind the couple during the ceremony before they headed inside for the celebration. Jenny and Mark enjoyed a three-tier white fondant wedding cake decorated with orange and brown satin ribbon and orange and yellow leaves. It was topped with a Lego bride and groom and trees to match the fall wedding! At the end of the night, the couple spoiled their guests with Colorado favorites such as local microbrews, chips and chocolate.

The bride carried red gerbera daisies, white stephanotis, orange roses, green hypericum berries and yellow dahlias in her colorful bouquet.
The groomsmen wore casual taupe suits with white shirts and teal polka dotted ties.
Jenny and Mark exchanged vows under a chuppah they made. They used a blue and white stripped blanket for the topped and added fall-inspired leaves around the bottom.
“The ceremony was held along Clear Creek in downtown Golden,” Mark says. “The sun set behind the bride and groom during the ceremony making it remarkable and memorable.”
