So many of my clients plan destination weddings that come here to Colorado. Almost all of Tia and Justin's guests flew in from out of state to help them celebrate their wedding, on a VERY hot day, at Cielo at Castle Pines.   Tia and I spoke all the time via phone and didn't even meet each other until the week she came in for the wedding!   

One thing that I thought was really surprising about planning her contemporary Colorado wedding was that she didn't know anything about her flowers. She left the design of everything up to me and her mom.  She was totally surprised on her wedding day! 

How many of you could do that????  I know I couldn't.  I knew exactly what she was expecting, so her mom and I had a great time selecting flowers and designing the wedding day.

 

 

Tia wanted a a grey and pale yellow color palette, a hot combo!  She loved her bouquet which was so soft and romantic.  The soft yellow, ceremony flowers gave a feminine touch to the Colorado outdoor ceremony pavilion at Cielo.

 

  

 It was such a hot day, that we moved the cocktail hour inside the venue where guests enjoyed amazing food from Catering by Design, and signed the couples engagement photo guestbook designed by their wedding photographer Camara Photography.  

  

Since the couple choose not to see each other ahead of time, we did photos while the guests enjoyed cocktails. This is one of my faves!

Then on to the dinner and dancing!  The bridal party sat at an large kings table. I just love how the head table centerpiece turned out! The guest tables had a variety of centerpieces. There were lush tall florals, floating candles with submerged orchids, and we moved the square vase florals from the aisle decorations for the rest of the tables.   Tia designed and assembled all her own table names and menu cards, she did a great job!

 

  

 

I have to say, I've never seen a party crowd quite like Tia and Justin' group, they were a ton of fun!  The dance floor was rockin' all night...except when they were in the photobooth!
