Simple. Elegant. Inclusive.

Those were the three things Libby Maloney and Nick Maple were looking for in their January 2016 wedding in Denver.

“We had 250 guests, and we wanted everything to be elegant, but we didn’t want too long a ceremony,” says Maloney, whose grandfather was the ring bearer. “And everything we wore was black and white: The bridesmaids’ dresses were all black, and they had white capes to wear when we went outside; the groomsmen all wore black and white, too.”

Even Maloney’s dress, a Pronovias number with a large, lovely train, fit the mood: “It was very sleek and form-fitting, and I like that.”

The couple like the mountains, but opted for an urban wedding at Mile High Station. Appropriately, it is near Mile High Stadium, and the wedding was the week after the Broncos won the playoffs in 2016, so the groomsmen all went over to the stadium for pictures.

After the ceremony, there were toasts, dinner and dancing. And the new husband and wife—she’s a treatment leader at a residential treatment facility, he does software business consulting and they met on—made sure to go around to all the tables to take selfies with each guest. And as an added treat, some of Nick’s fraternity brothers gathered around Libby to sing “The Sweetheart of Sigma Chi.”

“The day was sunny and beautiful, and then it began snowing at night, which worked out perfectly. We loved the location,” Maloney says. “It wasn’t stressful and we got to spend time with all of the people, which was important. The atmosphere was just right.”
