Spruce Mountain Ranch Wine & Nosh 2017 show was a fantastic event! First of all, SMR is one of our favorite venues with it’s choices of ceremony and reception backdrops. It is such a beautiful treat for all guests, especially out of town guests to get a taste of what Colorado has to offer in terms of view. Second, we love collaborating with amazing vendors to see what inspired designs we can come up with to showcase.

This year we wanted to play on the pantone color of the year – green. We decided to focus on all type of green in conjunction with great texture. Always pushing the envelope, we thought what a better way to offer two design concepts on one table which is what we did! On one side we have a gorgeous monochromatic design in ivory and copper. This side had a more elegantly rustic feel with ceramic plates, cut crystal and hammered flatware. The florals were swoon-worthy with lush dense feel with copper branchlike plumes dancing between the place settings and off the table. To complete the look, we used bronze Elio bistro chairs.

Our green side had more of a contemporary and modern feel with bold and graphic gold and white plates. The florals and greenery came alive with all types of varieties of gorgeousness. Delicate green foliage then spilled out from the centerpiece and between the place settings. We finished off the look with gold rimmed stemware and a white shagreen and gold napkin rings along with acrylic mirage chairs.

Once again, we LOVE our vendors who helped our vision come to life. A Design Resource who time after time surprises us with their creations based on our sometimes outlandish but unique and fun design ideas. Event Rents for letting us play with their new rental inventory whenever it comes in.   A big thank you to Rachel Havel Photography for capturing these images.  Green and white ombre wedding flowers copper wedding ombre wedding centerpiece modern green and gold place setting Cloud 9_Denver Wedding Planner_green wedding Cloud 9_green and white wedding_green and white centerpiece.

 

Organic Mountain Wedding ~ Ellen & Robby:

Ellen and Robby’s organic mountain wedding was a direct reflection of their joyful love story which began seven years ago in the salad department at the University of Iowa.  As you will will see in photos below, captured by Stephanie with From the Daisies, they adore each other; it’s nearly impossible not to get swept away.  Ellen and Robby invited their closest friends and family from all over the country to join them for their celebration weekend, which included a beautiful ceremony, grandma’s thumb print cookies, and the Iowa Hawkeye football game at a local pub.

When dreaming about the wedding, Ellen wanted the guests to experience the natural beauty of the Colorado mountains and Robby’s love for farming.  As soon as Ellen stepped on to the property, she knew Spruce Mountain Ranch was the perfect back drop they needed.  This led us to an organic, romantic aesthetic, over flowing with texture.  The neutral color palette consisted of slate grey, soft greens, and white.  Ellen surprised Robby with close friends playing the Beetles, while she walked down the isle. Where she joined Robby surrounded by friends, family, and their gorgeous outdoor ceremony.  Luckily the rainy weather held off until after the pictures!

Though it was a bit chilly outside, the guests were greeted by a warm fire place and a beautifully decorated space by A Design Resource.  We adore the escort cards in succulent pots and were featured in greenery boxes with flowering kale, artichokes, and moss.  Desiring a farm to table feel, we incorporated wooden boxes, vintage bottles, and rustic risers.  Then filled them with our white blooms, fun poppy pods, cotton and greenery to bring the tables “to life.”

Following the heart felt toasts by the bridal party and father of the bride, everyone delighted in the family recipe for Grandma Roger’s thumb print cookies and the organic cake by The Church of Cupcakes.   Then, the DJ with A Music Plus filled the dance floor as everyone danced the night away under the hanging lights and bright stars.

A HUGE thank you to the team that made this organic mountain wedding day flawless: Spruce Mountain Ranch, A Design Resource, From the Daisies Photography, Ampersand Family Videography, Catering By Design, Church of Cupcakes, The Glam Team, A Music Plus, Event Rents, and Peak Beverage.

 

Brown Palace Denver Wedding – Layne & Patrick

Frosted with a magical spring snow, Layne and Patrick’s wedding was a fairy tale. Irving Photography did a fabulous job capturing the intricate details and the overwhelming beauty of this glamorous day. Lehrer’s Flowers still has us swooning over the florals, as they elegantly combined garden flowers in tones of blushes and white with dripping jewels.

The Ceremony of this absolutely breath-taking day, took place at The Cathedral of Immaculate Conception. You can see the overwhelming beauty that filled the room, which is a direct reflection of the beautiful love shared between Layne and Patrick. As a special touch, Layne’s Father joined his A Capella group, who traveled all the way from Ohio to sing a blessing over the marriage before Layne and Patrick said “I do.”

Following the ceremony, guests were greeted with passed hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and classical music playing on the grand piano at the Brown Palace. While enjoying the company of each other, guests experienced Layne and Patrick’s legacy as they looked over their displayed family photos.  As the doors were opened, the ballroom revealed dazzling centerpieces and gold accents.  Then introduced for the first time as Mr. and Mrs., Layne and Patrick wrapped their arms around each other and swayed to music played by The Party Singers- Rockslide.  After dinner, the DJ and band filled the dance floor and the guests danced the night away. As the night drew to a close, Layne’s home state was represented when the Ohio Buckeye, which are peanut butter treats, were passed out to the guests for their enjoyment.  This was a day that will always be cherished by all.

Our dream team that made this fairy tale day come together: Irving Photography, Lehrer’s Flowers, The Party Singers- Rockslide, Trent Warren- DJ Techjitsu, DaCosta Films, Chair Rental Denver, and Allwell Rents. Thank you!

Four Seasons Denver Wedding ~ Jen & Chris: What a fabulous wedding! Great couple, fantastic guests and gorgeous day. A long time couple, Jen and Chris wanted to treat their guests to a wedding in Downtown Denver. What better place to host and celebrate with their friends and family than the Four Seasons Denver!

The couples’ overall aesthetic was soft, romantic, clean and sophisticated. The color palette what white and blush with touches of gold and black. The ceremony took place on the pool deck and thankfully, the weather held! We had special plans for the floral decor that included stunning altar pieces with a winding floral trial as well as floating pieces for the pool. The incredible Nicole Iverson with Swank Stems took care of business by putting on her swim suit to anchor her lovely pieces which were absolutely stunning!

Once the ceremony concluded, guests cocktailed on the pool deck while the bridal visited the Denver Performing Arts Complex to take photos. The area lends itself so well for pictures as it boasts structures, architecture and artwork. Once the cocktail hour ended, guests made their way down to the ballroom. The ballroom glowed with romantic centerpieces that encased in light from pin spots. Elite DJ took over to start the dancing and the party commenced! Jody and Zach Zorn were our incredible photographers capturing all the moments that happened throughout the evening – please enjoy their photos!

Our all-star vendor team who made this happened: Four Seasons Denver, Zorn Photography, Swank Stems, Elite DJ, Chair Covers & Linens, Columbine Entertainment, Rev. Kim Tavendale, PSAV, Anne Be’ and Cloud 9 Papers. We love our vendors who work tirelessly to make our clients’ vision come to life. We appreciate you so much and love partnering with such talented people. They make us look fabulous!

Personalized Groomsmen Gifts – We are often asked about this. What do I get my groomsmen as a gift? Where do I get it from? What would be fun and customized? Well, we have your answer! Check out Groovy Groomsmen Gifts. They have a fun selection of groomsmen gifts that can be personalized for all types of men that you have asked to stand up with you on your wedding day.

We were asked to do a test run with one of their gifts. Being that we are in Colorado which has been bursting at the seams with new breweries and specialty spirit distilleries popping up all the time, we thought we would try out Your Buddies Buddy. It is a laser engraved wood box that houses a personalized shot glass and pocket knife. The box itself is a great presentation piece and something more as a keepsake. The knife and shot glass are just as handy and would make any groomsmen happy.
