Emily and Jeff met in New York City at a friend's birthday party; four years later they were engaged. They share a passion for the outdoors and urban farming in Brooklyn. Because they both love gardening and flowers, they planned a backyard wedding at Emily's mom's house in Colorado Springs. As a child, Emily dreamed of an intimate wedding in the backyard surrounded by Colorado blue sky, mountains, and wildflowers. Emily and her groom set out to bring her vision to life on August 8, 2009.
