We think Franklin made his best catch ever here in Denver before he went to pitch for Boston. And we have no baseball analogies to describe how spectacular Isabel looked, as she prepared in her suite at the Four Seasons, donned her spectacular gown from Demetrios Bridal, and then headed over to the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception to walk down the aisle and take his hand. Father Paul O’Brien flew in from Boston to officiate a meaningful mass in both English and Spanish as an international crowd looked on. The service was followed by a an amazing reception for some 450 friends and family at the El Jebel Shrine in north Denver. Mariachis started off a non-stop evening of dancing and entertainment complete with “la marcha,” a traditional Mexican wedding dance, “la hora loca,” when everyone donned glow-in-the-dark glasses and headbands, and a photo booth provided by The Traveling Photo Booth. On another day we might be looking for no-hitters, but for Isabel and Franklin this day was a grand slam!

It was the real thing Saturday, since Amy and Einav had been through the drill on Friday. But when the fire alarm got inadvertently set off, the Denver Fire Department rushed over to add some unexpected excitement to the day. In the middle of the ketuba signing everyone had to evacuate, but fortunately there was no danger, and the fireman arrived in good spirits, as you can see. The only thing burning was the love shared by this wonderful and beautiful couple, and the ceremony and reception went off just as planned. It was a joyous and beautiful celebration at Temple Emanuel. The bride prepared in a lovely suite at the JW Marriott, with styling provided by Antoine du Chez and makeup by the spa at the JW, before she donned a spectacular gown from Anna Bé. For the reception, decor was provided by LMD Productions and Event Rents, catering by Catering by Design, music by Starkey Productions, beautiful florals by Newberry Brothers and a lovely cake by Gateaux. Our photography was complimented by the outstanding video of Mares Video Productions. The event was planned from start to finish by veteran planner Walli Richardson. What a day, what a night!

Lana and Dan’s stately processional at the University Club gave no clue to the style of the cermony, as their friend Lisa began the officiating with lines from “The Princess Bride.” “Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday. Mawage, that bwessed awangment, that dweam wifin a dweam…” A great start to break the ice, which was followed by meaningful and heartfelt vows that Lana and Dan wrote for themselves. A wonderful reception followed with music by Jammin’ DJs. The elegant florals were provided by Plum Sage.
