When they first came to me, D&D wanted to plan not one, but TWO wonderful celebrations. First, an intimate affair with 50 guests at a private estate in beautiful Breckenridge, CO. Followed by a fabulous, fun reception for 150 guests at Denver's coolest hotspot, Union Station. (Psst, See more on that wonderful event here!)
This savvy bride works in the event industry, so she was clear on what she loved and didn't love from the beginning. To maintain some continuity, for both events we stuck with a unique color palette that the bride loved. Inspired by orange calla lilies (given to her by her groom through the course of their courtship), we paired an unexpected rich purple, complemented by black, white, and touches of gold.
We embraced the mountain setting of this private estate and added touches of vintage and understated elegance to soften and elevate the feel of this Colorado setting. One of many details to enhance the comfort and experience for guests at this spring mountain-top wedding, was luxurious faux fur blankets to cozy up for the outdoor ceremony, and later around the fire pit as guests enjoyed making s'mores. It doesn't get much more Colorado than that!
We LOVE Danielle's look! This fur stole, and birdcage veil are the perfect accessories for this dramatic gown.
A vintage window made for the perfect seating map for guests. Hand lettered by yours truly!
Touches of gold at each place setting complemented these farm tables adorned with vintage lace table runners, pedestal vases, and personalized gold pear place cards, creating elegant & beautiful tables and place settings perfect for a formal, delicious plated dinner!
The floating flowers and candles in the pond on property was one of our favorite details!
This vintage vanity made for the most darling welcome water station & served double duty when we flipped to cake, chapmagne & farewell favors.
D&D, I can't thank you enough for trusting us to take care of you for both of your celebrations! The entire process was so special and fun, and I'm so proud of the outcome of both lovely events! We loved sharing in the joy of your days and are wishing you the absolute best on this next chapter of your life with a little one due this Spring!
