Elegant Ranch Wedding featured on Wedding Sparrow

We have been dying to share this wedding with you all! The rustic ranch setting that the groom fell in love mixed with the romantic elegant touches that the bride loves resulted in pure perfection! And today its being featured on one all time favorite wedding blogs: Wedding Sparrow! Click here to see the feature.

From the moment I met Mandy I knew she would end up being much more than a client, but a wonderful friend. We would end up chatting for hours about every pretty detail. The unique and dreamy color palette of blush, blues, greys, and a touch of burgundy was perfect for their fall wedding. The tone of the wedding was set with gorgeous calligraphy invitations by Annie from The Wells Makery that included a wax seal, delicate ribbon, and a hand illustrated map.

I loved working with Mandy because not only were design details important to her, but also sentimental elements were to. The bride carefully selected details that would represent generations of family and love – they selected bryces grandparents to sign their marriage certificate as their witnesses since they have been married for so many years and share such a beautiful love story. The bride even used stamps from her Grandfather’s vintage collection for their invitations.  She also wore a vintage blue ring that was my Grandmothers and each of my sisters wore on their wedding day. Even her gorgeous cathedral length veil was her “something borrowed” from her sister. The brides mom also had a huge impact in making the day feel special and personal. She hand sewed the blue cocktail napkins that were served at cocktail hour and the gorgeous navy ring bearer pillow that the bride’s nephew carried down the aisle.  She spent countless hours searching for the perfect honey jars that they filled with local Colorado honey and wrap with a silk ribbon and custom monogram tag as the perfect gift for each guest. I love that their special day was truly a family affair and filled with special touches that directly reflected their personality as a couple.

The ceremony was held outside on the ranch with a stunning mountain backdrop, framed by their large bridal party of friends and family.

The bridesmaids looks gorgeous is their long dresses that were a mixture of colors (blues, greys, and ivories)  and styles (some chiffon and some beaded).

For the reception we wanted a long statement head table. The navy blue tablecloths, lush 30 foot floral garland with touches pomegranates looks amazing with the chiffon and chandelier backdrop. The head table also had special escort cards: lovely hand painted mini terra pots with little potted plants adorned with their names.

Heidi & Paul’s Wedding Featured on Green Wedding Shoes!

Heidi and Paul’s July wedding is being Featured on Green Wedding Shoes!! This couple was very easy-going and so much fun to work with! I love the bright colors and fun details that went into this day. It was great working with Connie Dai Photography, Violet Floral Design, and Epicurean (can’t beat a yummy  food truck)! One of the best parts of the wedding was the amazing gelato from Fior di Latte.  See the full feature on Green Wedding Shoes by clicking HERE!

Heidi and Paul chose a 100 year old barn nestled in the mountains overlooking a lake and a meadow where a buffalo herd roams (literally!).  Playful invites with a sewn fabric pocket with pinked edges containing an invitation set the tone for the day. The same fabric was used to tie the boutineers. A gorgeous Anna Campbell gown with delicate beadwork and flowing silk chiffon paired with a floral crown was perfect for this free spirited bride. Tricia of Violet Floral Design did an amazing job creating a large, lush and vibrant floral arrangement set atop on a vintage buffet for a simple yet stunning ceremony backdrop.  The couple’s American Bulldog Mattie was all dolled up as the flower girl with fresh florals attached to her collar.  For the reception tables, Tricia of Violet Floral Design used a mismatched collection of mint glass and clear class clusters packed with beautiful peaches and blush toned flowers. Lovely pastels colors created a whimsical feel. Tucked in the vases were mint ombre table numbers. Selecting the food for their celebration was one of their favorite parts of the planning process, and they couldn’t have been happier with their choices: a delicious food truck and a refreshing gelato cart, which were also huge hits with their guests. One of my favorite details was their wedding hashtag #itstartedwithamohawk. Heidi really wanted to choose an original hashtag, so she went for one of the reasons why she first fell for Paul!

Thank you everyone for pulling it together to create this lovely day:
