Vibrant Planet Bluegrass Wedding

 So excited to see Sara & Glenn’s beautiful vibrant Planet Bluegrass wedding featured in MyWedding magazine this season. Lale Florals knocked it out of the park from embellishing the couples’ custom built chuppah with a colorful and natural landscape that complemented the beauty of the area to the unique and beautiful bouquets and reception flowers. The day was beautifully captured by the talented Michele Hart!

This ceremony was definitely one for the books! As Sara was walking down towards, a gust of wind whipped her veil around  and eventually blew it off.  Instead of worrying Sara and her parents laughed it off and continued down the aisle. During the ceremony, the rabbi invited both Sara and Glenn’s parents up where they danced together in a circle, laughing and smiling, celebrating the joy of their children’s’ marriage. It was a ceremony filled with so much love and happiness, you couldn’t help but smile from ear to ear.

The ceremony set the tone for the rest of the day. Sara and Glenn, family and friends enjoyed the evening eating and dancing. Surrounded by love and laughter it was a day no one will soon forget. We wish Sara and Glenn all the best!

Magical Mountain Wedding

 The day before Whitney and Eric’s wedding it rained for the entire day. And then on the day of….it rained and rained. But, right before the ceremony, it just stopped. The fog hovered over the mountains and it was so peaceful, it really created a magical mountain wedding! It was a day they will never forget, nor will anyone who witnessed it .

From the Bride: We are that couple that met in a bar but ended up with a happily ever after! We shared some tequila and the rest is history. I can attest to the old saying, absence makes the heart grow fonder as we started our relationship overseas and it was over Skype dates, a twelve-hour time difference and longing to be back together that sparked our love. Our first date was when Eric came back to the states for one of his best friend’s weddings. We were inseparable ever since.

A few years later, Eric took me on a summer trip to one of his favorite places, Telluride, where he proposed at the bottom of Bridal Veil Falls…swoon! Having been born in Colorado, we visit often and it has always had a special place in our hearts. We knew right away a mountain wedding was a must!

Planning a wedding in Colorado while living in Florida required a relaxed and carefree attitude. We actually booked our wedding venue without ever seeing it in person! I was very lucky to have found the venue, our phenomenal photographer and exceptional florist on Instagram. I put all my trust in my vendors and let the experts take over. This gave results better than I could have imagined and definitely made things much easier for me.

We wanted our guests to feel relaxed yet be awed by an extravagant experience. We envisioned a dreamy, romantic and chic boho vibe. We chose to go with shades of neutrals and incorporate some natural elements. As everyone who knows me is aware I have an absolute love for lavender so we enjoyed including it into our decor, using fresh sprigs on our place settings, creating a signature lavender infused cocktail and designing a crate of dried lavender to hold our escort cards. The florals were soft with pops of color to keep a fun summer feel. I gave full rein to our florist and she put together incredible bouquets with an assortment of florals that were even accented with fresh mint! She also made a stunning hair piece that really complemented the style I was looking for.

The most memorable part of the wedding for us was writing and exchanging our vows in front of our dearest family and closest friends. The dinner was exquisite with four courses and complemented by some incredibly funny and heartfelt toasts! The party carried on as the band rocked the dance floor late into the night. We chose to take a special moment together at the end of the evening. As the guests were lining up outside for our exit we shared one last dance together, just the two of us, to Lover of the Light by Mumford and Sons. It was as if everything went into slow motion. It was such an incredible way to take in all the delight of the day. Our wedding was more magical than I ever could have imagined. It rained for almost two straight days before the wedding but hours before the ceremony it cleared and made for the most mystical backdrop as the clouds filled the mountaintops.

To anyone currently planning, start early if possible, absolutely get a planner, and let go completely of any expectations once the day arrives. It truly will be the best day ever!

Modern Organic Wedding

Erin and Matt’s modern organic wedding at Crooked Willow was nothing less than beautiful! We wouldn’t expect anything less from one of our most stylish bride’s. Working with Erin to help her vision come to life was such a joy from picking out linens with a pop of color to figuring out how we could mesh the vibes of a modern wedding with vintage elements. All the details come together to create a natural and organic but creative with a dash of whimsical day.

Kristen & Bill’s Pastel Keystone Wedding

I can’t even begin to describe how much I loved this wedding or this couple. Their wedding was beautifully elegant, yet relaxed and fun all at once. The day couldn’t have been possible without the amazingly gifted Bella Lu and all captured by the talented  Connie Whitlock Photography. 

Bella Lu Floral used some of our custom vintage cake stands to create several of the beautiful and lush centerpieces. Jasmine vine and vintage bottles laid along the long guest tables with taper candles and low candlelight to warm up the rustic venue. Also, silk and willow hand dyed silk ribbon were used for the bride’s bouquet.

The wedding featured custom watercolor calligraphy invitations with flowers and mountains, and these lovely details were tied together through the entire day. Now featured on Style Me Pretty! Click here to see!
