Q & A with Ashley about her experience at Villa Parker
Q: What was your favorite Mr. and Mrs. moment from your wedding day?
A: I have two favorite moments. First, I absolutely loved our ceremony because my stepfather officiated our ceremony and we wrote our own vows. It was so special I will never forget it. It was not cookie-cutter at all and that meant a lot to me. Second, when I saw the look on his face when Adam Carolla came over the speakers during our toasts. I surprised him by getting his favorite comedian (Adam Carolla) to record a congratulations piece for our wedding. His face just LIT UP!
Q: What advice do you have for brides currently in the planning process?
A: Always remember during all the hustle and bustle trying to plan a seamless and beautiful wedding, that at the end of the day it's about celebrating the love between you and your husband-to-be. Remember to stop and take some time during the special day just for you two.
Q: What inspired your wedding?
A: We wanted our wedding to have an elegant Italian-inspired romantic feel coupled with a little Colorado charm. We brought in bold colors like charcoal grey and plum purple, placed fresh flowers throughout, served a delicious plated dinner and danced the night away under twinkling lights.
Q: Tell us about your little white dress.....
A: My dress was beautifully designed by Oleg Cassini. The dress featured a strapless satin bodice with lace and beaded appliqués, a mermaid-flared skirt and buttons that ran the length of the train.
Q: What attracted you to Villa Parker?
A: We were looking for a venue that had a very unique and personal feel to it, something that was warm and inviting and had character all on its own. We wanted something private that just the two of us and our guests could enjoy for the evening. Villa Parker truly was the best choice for us. We were whisked away to Italy for our wedding night without ever leaving the state! To top it all off, the staff was incredible and made our day truly special.
