Downtown Denver Winter Wedding – Grand Hyatt. Gorgeous.

When we met with Stacey and Gideon, we knew that we were going to have a blast with them! This urban couple live downtown and met online. Gideon was going to propose to Stacey while celebrating with their friends during a Bronco game. Stacey accidentally fell asleep so he had to move go to plan b and asked later that evening at their house!

Their vision was to treat guests to the downtown Denver experience for their winter wedding and the Grand Hyatt on the 38th floor was the perfect location with it’s 360 degree view of Denver. The minute we walked the space, they fell in love. Their colors were white, silver and gold and the design for their wedding was timeless with a contemporary twist. Their invitations featured an embossed circle design while using silver and gold ink. This carried throughout the wedding in the linens, florals, cake and personal touches.

A Design Resource knocked it out of the park with gold succulents, mirrored surfaces, gorgeous white blooms with gold and silver enhancements. We used their amazing acrylic escort card holder so that the Denver backdrop was viseable through it to give that city feel. The cards themselves were on silver and gold shimmer paper. It was stunning and certainly a conversation piece for guests.

It all came full circle during the cocktail hour when the crowd erupted finding out that the Broncos had made it int the Super Bowl! The Diamond Empire Band and Light Booth kept the guests rocking all night long.

A HUGE thank you to Frances at Frances Photography capturing these FABULOUS images.

Spruce Mountain Ranch Winter Wedding ~ Brandelin & Austin. We had such a blast working with Brandelin and her mom during the planning process! These two ladies are fun, have great style and such a pleasure to be around. From their engagement story at one of their favorite country singer’s concerts to the wedding day, and all the wonderful details we worked on to make this day truly about Brandelin and Austin, this was a wedding weekend to remember!

Brandelin wanted to blend country chic with a timeless and elegant look. Her color palette was gorgeous showcasing blush tones with accents of white and gold. Originally we had planned for the ceremony to be outside at Spruce Mountain’s Trey’s Vista. The November weather decided that it was time to summon winter in so we moved the ceremony indoors into Albert’s Lodge. We brought in the softest of soft blush draping with twinkle lights to create a soft and romantic backdrop. To reflect Brandelin and Austin’s faith, a custom large cross was built from Perfect Petal and adorned it with blooms. The bride wore a drop dead Rivini dress from Little White Dress.

Cocktail hour was a blast with music from Hipster Mama Productions. Guests found their seating assignments tied to horseshoes that doubled as their favor. When guests entered the Ponderosa Room, guests were treated with fabulous décor and outstanding florals. The bridal party was seated at a beautiful long kings table with Brandelin and Austin at their own sweetheart table. Catering By Design knocked dinner out of the park with their fabulous food and guests danced the night away for a evening they will not soon forget. Congratulations to an amazing couple!!!

We love fun ideas for guest books especially when they are from local vendors! They have always been part of weddings and have changed and have been modified over the years. The original guest book was a plain book were guests simply signed their name on the line. Now amazing things have been done to create a unique Guest Book that reflects the perfect couple getting married.

We have been so amazed with all the options out there but one in particular that we would love to shot you from right here in Denver. It is a company called Rich Vossler Photography. Rich designs Colorado Flags made out of wood as Wedding Guest Books.

Colorado Flag

The guests will sign the wood with either just their name or a thoughtful note to the couple. The finished Guest Book will be very unique and it is a fun way to display on the wall in their home, where they will be able to see and have a reminder of your special day. This would work for both out of town Couples getting married in Colorado and Colorado Native Couples getting married in a different state. That way you are either bring something new home with you are taking a piece of home back with you.

The color options very from full color to black and white. With them being made on the wood it will always be in our home and be a lasting memory.

blanc urban wedding: Aly and Blaise ~ What a fun crew! Aly and Blaise wanted to mix fall wedding colors with an urban edge. blanc provided white washed walls with exposed brick, metal garage doors with a hint of vineyard with their lush vines that cling to the sides building.  The color palette was navy, orange and white. Ally collected pumpkins of all sizes, colors and textures to amplify the decor. We also used colored glass to add shimmer to the tables. Edison bulbs were hung over the dance floor to create a cool ambiance.

Ally’s brother performed the touching ceremony while their absolutely adorable daughter, Mila, watched. Fun was the name of the game for the cocktail hour that boasted beer pong, jumbo cards, cornhole and other fun games. At dinner, guests had fun tasting numerous types of flat bread pizzas, street tacos and sliders from Biscuits and Berries. You better believe that guests were coming back for seconds and thirds! When dinner and the first dance concluded, guests were invited to the cool garage for dancing and scrumptious cupcakes and sweets. Photo booths are always a hit with guests and the photos that came out as the night progressed were hilarious!

Thank you to our wonderful Denver vendor team who knocked it out of the park once again: Infinite Pixels for the fab photos, blanc, Biscuits and Berries, Peak Beverage, A Music Plus, All Well Rentals, Yours Truly Cupcakes, Lighting and Design by Scott, Little Flower Market and MiHi Photobooth.

Crooked Willow Farms Wedding – Lauren and Mary Beth: We had such a blast with these ladies!! From the first meeting, we knew we were going to have fun planning their fabulous wedding. First, we needed to find a venue and once they stepped onto the grounds at Crooked Willow Farms, they fell in love. They wanted to treat their out of town guests to what beautiful Colorado had to offer and CWF was the perfect backdrop with it’s stunning setting and one of a kind venue.

The main goals for Lauren and MaryBeth were food (they are foodies), ambiance and creating a beautiful design concept that was drop dead gorgeous but still lending itself to being approachable and fun. Shades of reds, oranges and greens were used along with organic elements such as oranges and foliage.

The ladies wore complimentary gowns from The Bridal Collection and fabulous matching cowboy boots. Guests were greeted at the ceremony with an acapella group called Absolute Romance that harmonized traditional music. The ceremony was amazing and filled with heartfelt moments and once they were pronounced wife and wife, the party ensued! The acapella group turned it up during cocktail hour with fun tunes to set the mood!

When guests were invited into the ballroom for dinner, they were greeted with gorgeous florals and lighted twine balls that dropped from the ceiling. Epicurean killed it with their amazing food down the the fun details like milkshake shooters and a pretzel wall for a late night snack. What an absolute honor it was to share in their special day as these two women said ‘I Do!’.
