Meet Grace!


Meet out newest addition! Grace, named after the sweetest old lady we bought her from.  Grace has just been recovered with lovely blush velvet fabric. She would be perfect in a lounge area and make for some lovely bride groom photos!

Getting Ready Inspiration

While the ceremony and reception is often the focus of a bride’s planning, let this shoot serve as inspiration for another very special part of the day…the “getting ready”.  There is so much excitement and anticipation during this part of the day. Here is some ideas to make it even more special.

Molly & Jeff’s Wedding featured on Green Wedding Shoes

I’ve been dying to share this wedding! I apologize now for the picture overload, but these photos from EP love are amazing and Molly & Jeff’s was was such a joy to be a part of; they were so open minded and just a joy to be around. So I am so excited to see it featured on Green Wedding Shoes today, click HERE to see the feature!

Most importantly, their wedding truly turned out to be a reflection of who they are as a couple. The Lyons Farmette was the perfect backdrop for the laid back celebration complete with baby goats, chickens, gardens, and a darling renovated airstream. The bold and happy color palette really set the tone for this fun and vibrant wedding. And of course, Molly looked just ethereal in her gorgeous Tara LaTour gown from Anna Be. Of course we can’t forget the gorgeous flowers! A Florae incorporated a vast variety of flowers, such as peonies, blushing bride, ranunculus, scabiosa, sweet peas, and cafe au lait dahlias all keeping within the color palette for a lush and full look.

If you are considering doing a first look, but still not sure let these photos help convince you!  From the bride: “My absolute favorite part about the day was our first look. It was so special to have those few sweet moments together to embrace, breathe, and truly feel the magnitude of what we were about to do. It’s easy to get caught up in the little details, but in the end my favorite memories are of the feelings that were evoked by being surrounded by the people that we love the most.

First look from the 2nd shooter’s view..sigh!

The stationery was designed and calligraphed by Sally Balt of la Happy. Sally created these invitations using her whimsical custom calligraphy and vintage farm motifs, all in shades of mint green and brown. Kraft envelopes with an arrow design liner, mad lib response card,  and vintage postage made them just darling.

The ceremony was simple and sweet. The bride’s aunt was their officiant.   A Florae hung simple bud vases from the venue’s tree. It was the perfect backdrop.

The reception was playful with a touch of modern. Some of the other notable details included a dessert station set atop a whiskey barrel table, handmade striped napkins, and the bride’s grandmother’s vintage egg cup collection in the tablescape. Oh and we can’t forget about the delicious food from EAT!


From the bride: “One of the most special things about our wedding was that my dad made all the beer. In the several months leading up to the wedding, he spent every spare second tending to his home-brewed creations and making sure his recipes would please our guests. He even named each of the nine types of beer after something special in Jeff and my relationship, like Belle Duvel (our dog’s name) and Smoke Machine Porter (Jeff’s proposal involved a faulty smoke machine). Although his recycled bottles weren’t very beautiful, our guests were incredibly impressed by his hard work and the how delicious they all were.”

 Last but not least the couples getaway car, a vintage 1972 VW bus (thanks Hippe Limo)

Congrats Molly & Jeff! Thanks again for letting us share in your joyous day!

The Gathered Table Shoot Featured on Style Me Pretty

Happy Thanksgiving!! I am so grateful on this day to be spending it with family in California and also to share some inspiration with you! This shoot is being today on Style Me Pretty! Click here to see the link.

Style Me Pretty Feature

An integral part of a wedding celebration is the gathering of loved ones around a table to share food and drink. We were inspired by the belief in the power of good food and good drink to connect people as family, friends, and a community—and what more could one ask for in the celebration of a new marriage? In this intimate shoot, we wanted to highlight this idea. 

The Kitchen Denver Styled Shoot_Submission

One of Denver’s most celebrated restaurants, The Kitchen, served as the perfect venue for this gathering. One of The Kitchen’s missions is to create community through food—the name of the restaurant was chosen for its desire to act much like the kitchen in one’s home, a center of conversation and connection. We extended the feelings and warmth of the home kitchen to all areas of this wedding and brought in elements of cooking and beautiful edibles to serve as the backdrop for the celebration.

The Kitchen Denver Styled Shoot_Submission1

A Vintage Affair Events The stationery was designed and calligraphed by Sally Balt of la Happy in pencil on off-white cotton Crane paper with hand deckled edges to give the paper goods a delicate, soft feel. The calligraphy was done in a modern, fresh, organic style. The invitation set includes cotton paper backed in taupe ticking fabric, hand stitched together. The napkins were made out of the same ticking fabric to give everything a cohesive look.

The table runner was made out of soft peach chiffon, which allowed the richness of the wood table to come through. To incorporate the feast right into the flowers, Bare Root Flora paired a gorgeous variety of blooms, including antique hydrangea and lush sahara, geraldine and mother of pearl roses, with all sorts of lush edibles, including artichokes, kale, pomegranates, persimmon, and lavender in a white porcelain vase. Accents of black privet, peruvian apple, and kiwi vine gave the centerpiece lush, yummy texture. Bud vases of rosemary and lavender and loose persimmon branches and pomegranates gave the entire table a harvest feel.

A Vintage Affair Events  For signature drinks we did a Raspberry Moscow Mule (ginger beer, a Colorado vodka, lime, and raspberries) and a Fancy Fig (prosecco, A Colorado Vodka, Figs, and Thyme). As favors, we wrapped French Apple Tarts in parchment paper and included sweet recipe cards so guests could give them a try at home.

A Vintage Affair Events The Kitchen Denver Styled Shoot_Submission12  At its heart, a wedding really is a celebration of abundance–of love, family, food and memories. We hope this shoot will inspire couples as they create their own fabulous feasts.

Romantic Texture-Inspired Wedding

Beyond excited to share this shoot we designed being featured on Reverie Magazine!! It is so different than any of our previous designs and we are so proud! The inspiration for this shoot was texture..subtle yet romantic and elegant.

We didn’t want to overwhelm the look with color, so we went with a more subtle palette of whites, creams, blush pinks and peaches. Our model wore a stunning silk chiffon gown, appropriately named Grace, by Australian designer Anna Campbell, which features a delicately beaded sleeve and was a perfect contrast to the other textures in the shoot.

From Bare Root Flora “Flowers were a integral piece of the layered look we wanted. We adore the velvety softness and lines of the protea, the ruffles of the ranunculus and the parrot tulips, the depth of the andromeda, the lush delicate nature of the lilac and the open, sweet nature of the anemone, not to mention the contrast of its gorgeous navy eye against all the whites and blush pinks. The perfect finishing touch was the porcelain magnolia blooms–something we’d never used in design before.  We loved how the centerpiece looked sitting on the incredible linen from La Tavola–although subtle in color, its layered rosette and circle patterns added so much to the tablescape.” close up table candlestick bouquet model 2 bouquet model clutch dress dress cao flowers 4 flowers 3 flowers 2 flowers escort cards in a row escort and plate escort drinking glasses dress cap 2 venue model venue table with couch 3 table with couch 2 table scene table model window 3 model window 2 model window model table model stairs model dress close up 2 model dress close up model couch 2 model couch model chair 3 model chair 2 model chair model candles 2 model candles model blue wall
