When they met over philanthropy, it was a match made in heaven. Media personality Brittani Moreno, the popular morning anchor at CBS4 in Denver, first encountered her future husband Jordan Curry, a wealth management specialist at Morgan Stanley originally from Phoenix, Arizona, when they gathered to sell raffle tickets at an event to help underprivileged kids in Denver where they both live. This makes sense, since Brittani has a segment called Wednesday’s Child, where she introduces a child in foster care in need of a family to the viewers. The groom is also involved in children’s causes. They were married recently in a sumptuous ceremony at Austin Country Club.
The bride graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio and is the daughter of Irma and Anthony Moreno of Austin and the groom, who attended Arizona State University, is the son of Robin Wehrle and Tom Curry of Phoenix. The bride’s parents have known each other since first grade and the groom’s parents specialize in medicine.
The bride’s five attendants included her sisters Kristin Moreno and Taylor Moreno as her maids of honor, as well as Lauren Haire, Megan Olsen and Lisa Payton Reilly. The groom’s attendants, with his brother Josh Curry serving as best man, included his bride-to-be’s brother, Blake Moreno, and Aaron Daniel, Aaron Oaks and Brian Rallens.
The welcome party of cocktails and dessert at the Driskill Hotel downtown kicked off the wedding weekend’s festivities. The wedding, with a gold and navy color palette, began with strings playing as the bride walked down the aisle. The cocktail hour included Texas-themed cuisine and a pianist.
The reception had a live band, all a nod to the couple’s love of live music. The ballroom was draped and lit with white flowers that sprang from gold vases and a plethora of white lights that illuminated the ballroom. Nearby Westbank Flower Market helmed the floral décor. The wedding cake, by Michelle’s Patisserie, was multi-tiered with gold-foiled layers while the groom’s cake, with a basketball theme, was a tribute to his love of the University of Kentucky Wildcats. In fact, the groomsmen did a specially choreographed dance at the cake cutting. The bride’s signature drink was champagne and the groom’s was an Old Fashioned. Amy Kennedy at Austin Country Club was the wedding planner who helped make the festivities so special.
“My dad’s speech was incredible,” shared Brittani Moreno. “There was not a dry eye in the house. He defined my parents’ view on love and family.” Jordan Curry confided about the special day, “When people say that the experience will fly by, they are right. My memory of the wedding is one glorious hazy mixture of dancing, smiling and laughing, but the one memory that is so clearly vivid is watching my gorgeous wife walk down the aisle.”
The bride’s stunning wedding gown was designed by Matthew Christopher and was comprised of three different laces. The mantilla veil was reminiscent of one a Spanish bride might wear, according to the bride.
The day after the ceremony, guests were treated to a Sunday brunch at the bride’s Westlake home. The couple, who love being outdoors together and especially love spending time with their dog, Knox, honeymooned in Punta Mita, Mexico, and reside in Denver.
