ecclectic urban wedding | DENVER, COLORADO

I feel like I say this after each and every wedding, but I swear it's 100% true!  This couple is seriously amazing, and I loved every single second of working with them to create a beautiful eclectic urban wedding in May in our beloved Mile High City!  

While their love story began in New York City, and they currently reside in Manhattan, the bride is from Colorado, and the groom from Brazil, so these two decided to plan TWO weddings in both wonderful places!  

Over the course of a year, we got to work with E&S planning their Denver affair from afar. Through lots of video chats, a couple visits, and many many email exchanges, together we collaborated to design a beautiful celebration for everyone to enjoy! 

The bride works in fashion in New York and made her own dress- how fabulous is that?!  We simply love the fabric, and the unexpected black trim and it was the perfect inspiration for the styling of the event!  Like the non-traditional gown, we selected the most interesting and unique blooms and succulents to adorn the feasting tables at blanc.  Colorful Proteas, Orchids, and funky foliage lived amongst a collection of mercury and colored glass, and bevy of candles. 

Special touches were woven throughout and we gave guests a true taste of Colorado with locally sourced welcome bags, menu and beverages.  Lots of hand-crafted pieces enhanced the personality of this event featuring custom made "Steed" planters, a nod to the bride's moniker, a hand-painted cake topper to look like the bride and groom, an interactive coloring guestbook, and an amazing photo booth for fun!  

So many wonderful details made this wedding amazing, but the best part?  The love between these two.  Honestly, both were positively glowing the entire day, and the warmth and love in the room was a pleasure to be amongst.  I cry at most every wedding, and this one was no exception, but even a couple months later, I still think about the way he looked at her throughout the evening- they're so lucky to have found one another!  

Check out the story of the day so eloquently told by Rouxby Photography- we are in love with this wedding and this couple!  Such a wonderful day.   

Complete with individual potted succulents and personalized coloring books and aprons, even the kids table was fabulous!  

This hand painted cake topper is my favorite. Totally nailed the attire! 

The photo booth (and our awesome hand crafted colorful pallet back-drop!) were a huge hit!  I even got to pose with the happy couple- love that! 

We make lots of pretty things, but the best part of the job is getting to celebrate with such wonderful people- just look at this fun bunch!

After a wonderful evening of dancing, cocktailing, and photo boothing under the stars, guests made their way across the street for the perfect after party- pizza and beer at the Walnut Room.
