Denver Bound! Saturday, March 19, 2016

We are all so excited to share this journey with Jessica as she prepares to become Mrs. Jones in March. These communications are designed to provide information, keep us organized and ensure that information flows in an efficient format. There is a lot to do get ready for the wedding, but we intend to have a lot of fun doing it! Be sure to stay tuned for updates on bridesmaid fashions, travel planning, showers and other wedding celebrations. As Jessica's Matron of Honor, I look forward to traveling the road to Denver with you.

Celebrate Gracefully,

Patrice Marshall McKenzie

The Venue: Bella Sera Event Center - Denver, CO

Here are a few images of the venue. Jessica and Derek are going to have an amazing wedding here. We are so excited for them!

Bridesmaid Buzz: Fine Fusion of Colors, Fanciful Fashions, and Flawless Beauty

A Color Story

Jessica has selected a lovely color palate of sapphire, coral, and peach for the wedding. It is the perfect compliment to the venue and will illustrate the modern romantic vision she has for the day. Here are a few images to give you a little bit of the color concept, but she likes the sapphire blue vs. the navy.

Fashion Forward - Say Yes To Your [Bridesmaid] Dress!

Jessica has asked that we weigh in on styles that we like from the Dessy Group. Within that family of companies are the Dessy Collection, Alfred Sung, After Six, and Lela Rose. If you have not already done so, please visit and share any style numbers you like that come in the color Sapphire.

We will also make sure to select a cute shoe that is comfortable to wear all day. Being a bridesmaid requires a long commitment on your feet once you're dressed so the shoe has to have a long enough comfort life to get us through the day picture perfect! More to come.
