Good morning my lovely readers! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I guess you will have mostly been busy with last minute preparations for Christmas. I actually don’t celebrate Christmas, so this is the time when I tend to stay away from the shops and relax indoors as much as possible before the holiday break, which, believe me, is always as busy as ever, even if I don’t celebrate Xmas!
Today I have such a sweet wedding on the blog! Becci and Hugo tied the knot on 15th September in Boulder, Colorado. Their wedding was captured by Ashley Davis Photography, who is no stranger to Linen and Silk‘s readers.
Becci and Hugo have known each other since they were 12. Growing up together in England, they have been together for many years. This celebration was a commitment to each other and to their children. They are both casual but have real class & elegance. Hugo is the head chef and part owner at the Kitchen Restaurants in Boulder and Denver. Community is very important to them as well as family and friends which were on hand to witness & partake in the celebration of their family. Pastures of Plenty was chosen as their venue as it is a working local farm with which Hugo and Becci have a special relationship with, along with other farmers in the community, as they use their produce and meat in the restaurant. Pastures of Plenty specifically, is one of the produce vendors for the Kitchen Restaurants. Hugo and Becci have known Lyle and Sylvia, the owners, for a long time and were instrumental in ushering in the Farm to Table movement in Boulder, Colorado! Hugo and Becci have two boys together and made sure that there were lots of activities for the many children at the wedding including a bouncy slide, plastic swords, big bubbles! The kids were celebrated & included resulting in their having as much fun as the adults!
All of the vendors were friends and folks that Becci and Hugo have worked with in the restaurant for a long time. So everyone seems special!
Becci seemed to really enjoy the children running all around and having a great time. And Hugo seemed to enjoy bringing all of his close relationships together from the restaurant, farmers, and community members who have been supportive and instrumental in his vision for such a fantastic restaurant. The food, of course, was amazing!
