Vivid & Colorful Wedding at Crooked Willow

Katie & Wes’ fun and colorful wedding was such a joy to be a part of! We LOVED this day and this couple! This gorgeous wedding is now featured on Green Wedding Shoes! Click here to see more of it!

The couple chose to seat their 75 guests at two long farm tables, which were a real focal point for the evening. The wooden tables were set with vintage china, delicate grey runners, and a gorgeous mix of florals in wood boxes, delicate brown bottles, and beautiful smoky glass and stone urns filled with textural and lush blooms in a deep and saturated color palette. Watercolor painted place cards, loose artichokes and beautiful votives finished off the tables perfectly. Overhead, an eclectic mix of Edison bulbs were hung to give the tables a gorgeous glow.

Some of our other favorite details included a whiskey tasting, Free People bridesmaid dresses, and custom made cowgirl boots for the bride! This wedding is so much FUN. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Amy & Will’s Bohemian Crooked Willow Wedding

If you love flowers and sweet, pastel hues, today’s Colorado farm wedding, captured by Laura Murray Photography will win you over big time! Amy and Will wanted their wedding to be a laid-back and fun experience for their friends and family…and they wanted it to reflect their affinity towards all things bohemian, whimsical and romantic. We worked with them to bring their aesthetic and ideas to life and chose a beautiful (and enviable) pastel color palette of peaches, pinks, creams, dusty blues, and sage greens that we know you’re going to love!

Probably the most stand-out detail is the floral design by Bare Root Flora. Dreamy blooms were practically dripping from every vignette, and even Amy was decked out in posies! We love her wild + gorgeous bouquet and that she paired her lovely lace Yolan Cris dress with a peach + ivory flower crown.

The cocktail hour and reception room were no different from the ceremony in regard to the abundance of lush florals found in every direction. Cocktail tables were adorned with the bridesmaids bouquets and even the escort card display (another fun focal point of hanging ombré paper cranes) and the teepee were embellished with greenery to add a more organic feel to the cocktail hour. Inside the reception room, the head table was flooded with beautiful centerpieces in wood boxes to complement the wood table. The surrounding rounds were topped with an assortment of lovely centerpieces to add more texture and variety to the tables. Table numbers and other paper goods were exquisitely hand drawn with flowers to match the florals used throughout the wedding by the ever talented Lana’s Shop.

From the bride, “The downpour in the middle of our ceremony was my favorite memory from the day. It rained off and on all afternoon and we started feeling light raindrops as we were lined up to start the ceremony. I’ll never forget walking down the aisle with my mom and seeing our guests holding all these white umbrellas (which my husband was smart enough to buy 2 days before the wedding!). We made it through about 10 minutes of the ceremony before it started to really rain – enough that we had to stop the ceremony and huddle under the arch while the bridal party held up umbrellas for us and got completely soaked themselves. We decided to let the storm pass and the rain finally subsided after a few minutes so we were able to continue on with the ceremony. I had been so worried about it raining but it actually turned into such a beautiful, unforgettable moment. I was so happy that all of our family and friends were so accommodating and waited it out with us. And as the ceremony came to a close the sun came out and the rest of the evening was gorgeous!”

The wonderful day was filled with so much love and happiness it was such a joy to be able to witness it all! See the wedding also on Green Wedding Shoes, where it being featured!

Colorful Glam Crooked Willow Wedding featured on Style Me Pretty!

Its like the sun knew it couldn’t compete with the radiance of this colorful glamorous bride. Despite the overcast skies, the day turned out perfect. The timeless romantic invitation with delicate gold foil on a pale pink cotton paper mixed with whimsey red calligraphy really set the tone. Guests were greeted with wine when they arrived at 90 acre farm before walking over to the lovely ceremony site. Liz, from Cori Cook Floral created gorgeous lush asymmetrical bouquets with gold flowing ribbons. They looked perfect with the bridesmaids blush and metallic dresses.

Bringing in a touch of Colorado the sparkling escort cards placed in aspen branches were paired perfectly with mountain scene table numbers. The guests were dancing all night long to music from Diamond Orchestra. The evening was the perfect combination of refined and relaxed. Brumley and Wells captured this lovely day on film. They approach small moments and details unlike anyone else which gives the photos such a defined artistic style.
