Soft Grays and Blues for an early Autumn Wedding

Heidi and Aaron came to me with a very natural and romantic vision for their wedding day. They  wanted to have the feeling of being outdoors without it actually being outdoors. Heidi and Aaron did not want to have the expected, the draping of the ceilings with vines or large leafy green arrangements, they wanted it more intimate, more personal. The venue itself is stunning, Brookside Gardens in Berthoud, CO. We didn't need to do much for the ceremony but set an arbor for the couple to stand beneath. We covered it with greens, and added only mop head hydrangeas and that was it, that was all that was needed. For the reception we did 2 different looks, a long lush garden arrangement for the long tables, and old gray barnwood boxes for the round tables. We chose soft gray and blue complimentary linens and napkins, and popped it all with blue vintage water goblets. It was romantic, natural, very Heidi and Aaron!! Enjoy, Ria

 

 

 

Romantic Snowy Spring

Kelsey and Ben tied the knot on the most beautiful snowy spring day.  The original plans were to have a romantic set up outside followed by a lovely luncheon inside. Mother Nature thew us a very snowy curve ball. We re set the ceremony arbor in a lovely naturally lit room adjacent to the reception.I think it all turned out magical, Enjoy! Ria.

Mountainside Glamour

Lori and Povilas's sunny November wedding was a full weekend of family, fun and Colorado mountain air.  The historic Stanley Hotel was their ideal venue, tucked away in Estes Park, with a perfect view of Long's Peak. The color pallet was full of burgundies, plums and ivories, with highlights of silver, and a splash of Navy. The entire event was a magnificent blend of Classic and Lithuanian wedding traditions, incorporating traditional dances to welcome the Bride and Groom, and an entrance to the reception under a sea of jostas (check out the photos below for reference!).  There was so much happiness and love in the air - we are so grateful to have been a part of their day!

English Garden Splendor

Kelly and Jake's early summer wedding was filled with some of my favorite colors to design with, and some of my most favorite flowers of course!!! The color pallet was coral, orange, peach, yellow, and greens. Kelly wanted full arrangements with an English Garden look, but with a twist on the old style. We added in unique pieces, like the escort card table; an ornate picture frame with a hand ink drawn urn, filled with real flowers. All the tables had original hand drawn and ink colored table markers from the very talented local artist Tyler Smith. The centerpieces were designed in an all white pedestal compote that were available for all the guests to take home after the event. The best part of this wedding was being able to work with my close friend Danielle at Defiore Photography, her images are always so amazing. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed designing them!

 

Morning Fresh Dairy Fete

We were so excited when Christie and Jeremiah asked us to design their flowers for their wedding at Morning Fresh Dairy in beautiful Bellvue, Colorado. Christie's vision was a color pallet of peaches, blues, and ivory. They both wanted a rustic but romantic affair, and I think we hit it right on the mark. Amazing tables were rented from Harvest Table Company  to give the couple a family style look but with the rustic charm and design needed to achieve the overall feeling for the event. Zuzu's Bakeshop provided homemade brownie bites with Morning Fresh Dairy milk shots, as well as a delightful strawberry short cake, and bluberry cake to top it all off.
