Holy Ghost Church Wedding and History Colorado Denver Wedding Reception

Molly McConaty and David Coors were married over Thanksgiving weekend in downtown Denver. Since both of their families each go back five generations in Colorado, Molly and David selected venues, decor, food and drink to compliment their strong ties to Colorado. This wedding was a celebration of Colorado heritage!

Beginning in late September, I photographed Molly’s bridal portrait at Denver Country Club and was lucky to capture the gorgeous fall foliage in addition to the interior and exterior beauty of the Denver Country Club.Fall Foliage Bridal Portrait Denver Photographer Kristen Sloan Moss Pink Flora

On Friday evening, Scott Krebs and I captured candids during the wedding ceremony rehearsal at Holy Ghost Church in downtown Denver. The bride and groom selected a western attire theme for the evening.

David and his groomsmen got dressed at his parents residence in Denver. We photographed the portraits of the gentlemen in their beautiful backyard. The gentlemen were outfitted handsomely in black cowboy boots. David’s dad, Pete set-up a boot shining station to help the gentlemen look their best.

Molly and David’s evening wedding ceremony was held at Holy Ghost Church. The full Catholic Mass was officiated by Father Daniel Leonard and Monsignor Michael Glenn.

Flowers were designed by Jil at Moss Pink Flora. Sophisticated woodland rustic was the theme with hydrangeas, roses, thistle, succulents, orchids, nandina and seeded eucalyptus.

All of the wedding stationary, (including the invitations, church programs and menu cards) was provided by Rosie Wiedenmayer of the Paper Lady, Denver, Colorado.holy ghost wedding

The wedding reception was held at the newly opened History Colorado Museum. Hosting their wedding reception at History Colorado was particularly meaningful to the Molly and David since their families are fifth generation Coloradans.

The menu featured local Colorado ingredients  of autumns’ rich bounty catered by Continental Divine Catering  lead by  Shannon Fitzgerald.

The wedding featured Colorado wines from Creekside Cellars. The grapes were grown and harvested in Palisades, Colorado, but crushed, cellared and bottled in Evergreen, Colorado.

A celebratory grand cru honey wheat ale brewed with local madhava clover honey from Lyons, Colorado was created by the groom,  David Coors and Sandlot Brewery for the special occasion. Guests toasted the couple in monogrammed glasses. Later  they were able to take these home as a favor along with a bottle of the ale customized with Molly and David wedding labels.
