Romantic Blush Mountain Wedding featured on Style Me Pretty!

 Caitlin and Jimmer are such a beautiful couple inside and out. They are close friends of mine so when Caitlin asked me to be her bridesmaid I was thrilled! She also later asked me to be her planner which was just as exciting…but I knew would be a little complicated! Planning with her was such a wonderful experience and thankfully on the day of Michaela and Grace came to my rescue so I could focus on being a bridesmaid! I have the best team ever!  Thanks so much to Connie Dai Photography for these gorgeous photos. You are the truly talented.  And, a high thanks to Violet Floral Design for the most lovely romantic lush flowers I’ve ever seen!

When we began the design process, we knew we wanted to create something understated, romantic, and elegant for their mountain celebration. Caitlin and Jimmer chose the mountains of Estes Park because they wanted a weekend event, but also because Estes held a special place in their hearts. It is the place of their very first vacation together, and more since. It had also held so many memories for them and promised more in their future, starting with their wedding. This wedding was the perfect reflection of them as a couple – genuine and caring. They took every step to make sure everyone felt included and knew how much their presence meant to them. It was one of the most heartfelt days I’ve ever been a part of.

Caitlin’s Hayley Paige gown could not have been a better fit. The lace bodice with an organza overlay gave the lace a layered, delicate effect. The ceremony pergola was covered with chiffon draping and a lush gorgeous garland from  Tricia of Violet Floral Design.  Cocktail hour was held on a covered deck with sweeping views of the valley. Custom-made pink and white chiffon draping framed the beams. Chiffon linens covered the cocktail tables, giving them an airy and simple look. Bistro lights added the perfect ambiance, and also allowed for dancing to take place al fresco.

The reception was full of classic touches that included silver and crystal taper candles down the head table. Each place setting had a pink napkin with a menu tucked in, and the escort card was tied with delicate ribbon and a sprig of rosemary. The lovely cake table held a trio of small cakes adorned with flowers with a calligraphed mirror with a quote by Walt Whitman that read “We were together, I forget the rest.” For the guest book, guests filled out vintage Colorado postcards that the maid of honor is going to be mailing to the couple randomly during their first year of marriage. Even the cocktail napkins were a special detail – the bride’s mother sewed the linen napkins herself. Connie Dai Photography captured the day exquisitely. It is always a treat to have her skilled lens capture my work.

Angie & Carl Fall Ranch Wedding

We loved working with Angie & Carl! They had so much personality and spunk. With such vibrant personalities the couple had the colors to match! Their flowers from Bare Root Flora were so fun and beautiful we instantly fell in love them. The day was filled with so much love and joy, it was truly a delight to watch these two say “I Do.”

P.S. Did we mention how adorable the flower girl was?

Thank you Angie and Carl for letting us be a part of your special day!

Colorful Glam Crooked Willow Wedding featured on Style Me Pretty!

Its like the sun knew it couldn’t compete with the radiance of this colorful glamorous bride. Despite the overcast skies, the day turned out perfect. The timeless romantic invitation with delicate gold foil on a pale pink cotton paper mixed with whimsey red calligraphy really set the tone. Guests were greeted with wine when they arrived at 90 acre farm before walking over to the lovely ceremony site. Liz, from Cori Cook Floral created gorgeous lush asymmetrical bouquets with gold flowing ribbons. They looked perfect with the bridesmaids blush and metallic dresses.

Bringing in a touch of Colorado the sparkling escort cards placed in aspen branches were paired perfectly with mountain scene table numbers. The guests were dancing all night long to music from Diamond Orchestra. The evening was the perfect combination of refined and relaxed. Brumley and Wells captured this lovely day on film. They approach small moments and details unlike anyone else which gives the photos such a defined artistic style.

Bonnie & Brad’s Big Day!

Every one of our weddings is unique. But our bride Bonnie really reinvented the “grand entrance”.  Her groom is a pilot, her brother is a pilot, both their grandfathers are pilots. They even had their rehearsal dinner in a plane hanger (which was awesome!).

The bride wanted to incorporate the connection into her wedding somehow.  So, she decided she surprise everyone and fly into the ceremony in a helicopter! We knew a  crucial element would be surprise. The only people that knew was the bride, her brother (who flew her), bride’s mom and the venue (Crooked Willow). It took a lot of logistical planning, but it was a great success! All the guests and most importantly the groom were pleasantly surprised!

Thanks Bonnie & Brad for letting me celebrate the day with you!

Wedding Venue Roundup: Northern Colorado: Osborn Farm

In Northern Colorado there are all these great farms, orchards, and barns to get married.

One of our new favorites is Osborn Farm, where our couple Tiffany & Alex tied the knot this summer. I really like farm weddings, they feel so personal and relaxed. It’s a lovely space with tons of natural beauty!

Thanks Joni Schrantz for the lovely photos.

They only book one wedding a weekend which makes them book up quick! So be sure to check them out.

Katie & Matt’s Elegant yet Casual Affair

Katie & Matt’s wedding was a joy to be a part of, truly! They are so in love that it seemed nothing else mattered. Rain was not in the plan for their day, but it happened. Katie and Matt were so great about it because they embraced it. And to be honest it made the day feel more intimate  and special. Congrats you two! Thank you for letting me be a part of your day :)

Heidi & Paul’s Wedding Featured on Green Wedding Shoes!

Heidi and Paul’s July wedding is being Featured on Green Wedding Shoes!! This couple was very easy-going and so much fun to work with! I love the bright colors and fun details that went into this day. It was great working with Connie Dai Photography, Violet Floral Design, and Epicurean (can’t beat a yummy  food truck)! One of the best parts of the wedding was the amazing gelato from Fior di Latte.  See the full feature on Green Wedding Shoes by clicking HERE!

Heidi and Paul chose a 100 year old barn nestled in the mountains overlooking a lake and a meadow where a buffalo herd roams (literally!).  Playful invites with a sewn fabric pocket with pinked edges containing an invitation set the tone for the day. The same fabric was used to tie the boutineers. A gorgeous Anna Campbell gown with delicate beadwork and flowing silk chiffon paired with a floral crown was perfect for this free spirited bride. Tricia of Violet Floral Design did an amazing job creating a large, lush and vibrant floral arrangement set atop on a vintage buffet for a simple yet stunning ceremony backdrop.  The couple’s American Bulldog Mattie was all dolled up as the flower girl with fresh florals attached to her collar.  For the reception tables, Tricia of Violet Floral Design used a mismatched collection of mint glass and clear class clusters packed with beautiful peaches and blush toned flowers. Lovely pastels colors created a whimsical feel. Tucked in the vases were mint ombre table numbers. Selecting the food for their celebration was one of their favorite parts of the planning process, and they couldn’t have been happier with their choices: a delicious food truck and a refreshing gelato cart, which were also huge hits with their guests. One of my favorite details was their wedding hashtag #itstartedwithamohawk. Heidi really wanted to choose an original hashtag, so she went for one of the reasons why she first fell for Paul!

Thank you everyone for pulling it together to create this lovely day:
