Bright Desert Inspired Mountain Wedding featured on Brides.com

While Annie and Cody wanted to get married in the Rocky Mountains they also wanted to incorporate bits of New Orleans into the wedding since the couple lived there together. What transpired was a mountain chic celebration with Southern details, like a second-line exit from their ceremony and barbecued shrimp appetizers, at the Red Sky Ranch in Wolcott, Colorado. The incredibly creative and talented bride even created her own invitation suite and the results are astounding and bring life to the desert inspired mountain wedding! See more details and photos here on Brides.com where the wedding is now featured!

Romantic Blush Mountain Wedding featured on Style Me Pretty!

 Caitlin and Jimmer are such a beautiful couple inside and out. They are close friends of mine so when Caitlin asked me to be her bridesmaid I was thrilled! She also later asked me to be her planner which was just as exciting…but I knew would be a little complicated! Planning with her was such a wonderful experience and thankfully on the day of Michaela and Grace came to my rescue so I could focus on being a bridesmaid! I have the best team ever!  Thanks so much to Connie Dai Photography for these gorgeous photos. You are the truly talented.  And, a high thanks to Violet Floral Design for the most lovely romantic lush flowers I’ve ever seen!

It’s no surprise that this wedding is being featured on Style Me Pretty! Click here to see the feature.

When we began the design process, we knew we wanted to create something understated, romantic, and elegant for their mountain celebration. Caitlin and Jimmer chose the mountains of Estes Park because they wanted a weekend event, but also because Estes held a special place in their hearts. It is the place of their very first vacation together, and more since. It had also held so many memories for them and promised more in their future, starting with their wedding. This wedding was the perfect reflection of them as a couple – genuine and caring. They took every step to make sure everyone felt included and knew how much their presence meant to them. It was one of the most heartfelt days I’ve ever been a part of.

Caitlin’s Hayley Paige gown could not have been a better fit. The lace bodice with an organza overlay gave the lace a layered, delicate effect. The ceremony pergola was covered with chiffon draping and a lush gorgeous garland from  Tricia of Violet Floral Design.  Cocktail hour was held on a covered deck with sweeping views of the valley. Custom-made pink and white chiffon draping framed the beams. Chiffon linens covered the cocktail tables, giving them an airy and simple look. Bistro lights added the perfect ambiance, and also allowed for dancing to take place al fresco.

The reception was full of classic touches that included silver and crystal taper candles down the head table. Each place setting had a pink napkin with a menu tucked in, and the escort card was tied with delicate ribbon and a sprig of rosemary. The lovely cake table held a trio of small cakes adorned with flowers with a calligraphed mirror with a quote by Walt Whitman that read “We were together, I forget the rest.” For the guest book, guests filled out vintage Colorado postcards that the maid of honor is going to be mailing to the couple randomly during their first year of marriage. Even the cocktail napkins were a special detail – the bride’s mother sewed the linen napkins herself. Connie Dai Photography captured the day exquisitely. It is always a treat to have her skilled lens capture my work.
