Brad & Emily’s Rocky Mountain Wedding

Brad and Emily’s had a picturesque Rocky Mountain wedding in Colorado last Fall. As outdoor enthusiasts, they were inspired to pick The Winding River Ranch tucked in the Colorado mountain town of Grand Lake. Emily wore a stunning lace gown by Nicole Miller and her bridesmaids wore mismatched dresses in shades of purple, nude, and blush. Flora by Nora’s fall inspired arrangements brought the reception to life along with a live band that kept the guests dancing all night. Photography was a huge priority for the couple since the groom is Brads the CEO of Artifact Uprising. They choose the talented Levi Tijerina to capture the day. The true beauty of this wedding was all the special touches. Table numbers were National Parks which was fitting since they got married with the Rocky Mountain National Park as their ceremony backdrop. The bride’s grandmother needlepointed the bright colored Chuppah that hung above them as they said “I do”. Thanks Brad and Emily for letting us be a part of your big day!

Classic Vail Wedding

Alba and Jordan’s  classic Vail wedding took place at Donovan Pavilion the second weekend of October in the lovely mountains of Vail, Colorado.  The fall colors made a stunning backdrop for their mountainside first look.  And Becca, the couples adorable pup was the cutest “Dog of Honor”. Alba has such a classic style which made for a timeless and romantic day at the iconic venue. Congrats again Alba & Jordan!

Organic Mountain Wedding Inspiration

We are so excited to see this elegant and organic mountain wedding inspiration shoot being featured on Magnolia Rouge! The Rocky Mountains never disappoint for a backdrop, but they are especially spectacular in late September, when the aspens become resplendent in shades of gold, amber, orange and deep red. Keeping the design simple, warm and welcoming meant it didn’t distract from the natural beauty of the mountains. A color palette of treys, ambers, peaches, and burgundy complemented the landscape and the season.

We kept the table design very clean and simple to highlight two gorgeous focal points, a one-of-a-kind hand-carved taper holder and the gorgeous arch under which the table sat. The table was set with simple, classic plates from Handmade Studio on gorgeous table linen from La Tavola and a handmade runner. Gorgeous matte flatware from were a perfect compliment to the vintage gunmetal marais chairs from Electric Hive. We wanted the clean, modern feel of the table to be offset by the wild, textural structure above it. The arch was bedecked with lush smilax, crabapple branches, seeded hydrangea, liquid amber, broom corn and amaranthus. We couldn’t resist tucking in a few perfect black beauty roses as a finishing touch. For the dress we wanted something minimalistic but beautiful. The Charmeuse Watters tank top with raw edges paired with a flowy pleated skirt by Grace from Anna Be was the perfect fit.
