Cherry Hills Community Church Wedding | Terrace Gardens Ken Caryl Reception

Congratulations to Ruth & Dave, married at Cherry Hills Community Church with a fun Terrace Gardens Ken Caryl reception!

Both bride and groom come from musical families and relatives and both sides wowed guests with stirring spirituals. A family friend officiated, and kept everyone compelling as he extolled the virtues of marriage while “tying the knot” with ceremonial colored ropes. Ruth’s mom is a Kindergarden teacher and the school’s bus was appropriated for transporting the wedding party to the reception. We stopped near the Coyote Song trailhead for some dusk field photos then on Terrace Gardens!

Two wedding cakes are slowly becoming more common in Colorado, but this was different. Usually the second cake is the “Groom’s Cake”, but this time it’s a Swedish ring cake (kransekage) playing on Ruth’s family roots. I’ve heard these Swedish ring cakes (almonds, sugar, marzipan) can have a bottle of wine hidden inside. Hmmm, who wants to find out?
