{Real Weddings} Highlands Ranch Mansion Wedding | Preppy Theme Wedding

"Preppy Love" was Meg and Eric's wedding theme for their Highlands Ranch Mansion Wedding.  They wanted it to be fun and formal, but definitely not stuffy.  They also wanted a preppy vibe and visually exciting graphics.  Meg is big in to the design and graphics of the paper pieces like the invitation, menu and programs.

A wedding with lots of details, clean lines, visually exciting, modern graphics, and a romantic garden feel...that's right up our alley!  Meg loved our design process! For our design board presentation, she and her mom even made an event of it with a wonderful brunch set up for the whole family. It was such fun!

So read on, today we are sharing Meg and Eric's wedding ceremony, tomorrow the cocktails and reception! read more

{Engagement Photos} Denver Wedding Photography | Engagement Photos

Engagement photography sessions are so important.  Many couples think they will skip it to save money, but it's really in the words of Martha Stewart a "Good Thing"!

Your engagement session gives you time to get comfortable in front of the camera, and gives your photographer a chance to see how you interact, find out if you have a good side, if you are a blinker, etc.  Not to mention it's a great time for all of you to just get to know each other. Then on your wedding day you'll already be a pro at being in front of the camera, and have some idea as to what your photographer might ask you to do.  Overall, you'll be much more comfortable which makes for awesome wedding photos!   read more

{Real Weddings} Lodge and Spa at Cordillera | Colorado Wedding Planner

We helped Stephanie and Dennis plan an amazing destination wedding here in Colorado at the Lodge and Spa and Cordillera. Stephanie knew she wanted a peacock themed wedding with lots of bling!  Initially she thought she wanted to use all the peacock colors for her design. However, once we learned a little more about her vision, the colors didn't seem to  fit.  Through our signature wedding design process we came up with something completely different from where she started, and we all loved it!

Stephanie also knew she wanted something to really wow her guests, who were all from New Orleans.  Something really unusual and on to hear more about our peacock fairy! read more

{Real Wedding} Grand Hyatt Denver Weddings| Ombre Wedding

Julia and Alex had their wedding at the Grand Hyatt in Denver.  Always fun when you get to work with wedding vendors you love, on their family's wedding. Also, nice for a bride when your mother-in-law to be is a florist, and a fab florist at that!  Amy with The Flower House is super AH-mazing, I work with her a lot.  So, I was excited to jump in and work with both her and Julia on the wedding. Talk about a laid back couple!  Julia basically just said here is my ideas on color, but you tell me what would be good for design. 

Good thing they were super laid back, since the Grand Hyatt was doing serious renovations of their ballroom spaces.  It was scheduled to be done by their wedding day, but construction delays kept pushing completion back. We had several back up plans in place, but literally we did not know which room we would be in for the wedding until that morning! read more

It's so much fun when people you work with in the industry get married. After having so many weddings this summer with Nancy, from Chairs with Character, we were so excited to be helping her with her wedding at Wash Park in Denver and then her reception at Wash Park Studios. Nancy's company Chairs with Character rents lovely vintage chairs as well as amazing vintage props, comes in handy when you are planning your own wedding! 

Nancy and Wes had a blue and white color palette, with a vintage decor flair but still pulled in a few more modern touches like a chevron pattern. I think it was a great combo!   read more
