Dellwood Barn | Romantic Summer Wedding

Summer wedding at Dellwood Barn

After meeting Colby and Maddie at their engagement session last summer, I was so excited for their wedding day this year! And it did not disappoint one bit! Colby and Maddie met at an FCA event while in college and to hear the story from Colby’s grandpa gave me chills! Their wonderful officiant, Drew, had a part in it, which only made it even more meaningful to have him at the beautiful Dellwood Barn Weddings venue to do their wedding. I’ve only spent two days with Colby and Maddie (engagement and wedding) and I seriously feel like I’ve known them forever! They have a way of making everyone feel special, and being around them is simply amazing.

Their wedding day was full of so many stunning details! Let’s just begin with my friend Jen, from The Flower Girls! The flowers were beyond words!!! Might have been my favorite bouquet EVER! not to mention the ceremony arch and reception tables looked amazing as well! I could go on and on about Maddie’s Badgley Mischka shoes, their beautiful rings from Brilliant Earth and Rustic & Main, the incredible ceremony music by Chris Koza, reception entertainment by Gary LeRue, and lots of other details. But what made the day SO special was the people. Colby’s football buddies from UC Davis, Maddie’s gymnast friends from University of Denver, their families, and especially Colby and Maddie themselves. I can’t say enough good things about these two! Their wedding day was a dream!

And to top the weekend off, Colby had to fly out early the next morning for the USFL Championship game. Congrats to the Birmingham Stallions who won! One weekend and two rings. It’s going to be hard to top this one! So happy for you guys!! Congrats Mr & Mrs Wadman! XOXO!
