intimate fall cocktail reception | DENVER, COLORADO

I have had the pleasure of knowing the bride, Ashley, for years through mutual friends, so when she contacted us to plan an intimate reception in Denver celebrating her hometown Nebraska nuptials, of course I was thrilled to help!  

To contrast her spring garden wedding in the midwest, we selected an urban, Denver venue in the month of November, along with a rich color palette featuring merlot against ivory, blush and peach, and lots of gold accents and candlelight.  The design created a warm, inviting environment, and paired beautifully with a locally sourced, seasonally inspired menu, complete with a pie bar for dessert!  

Everything came together so beautifully for this special evening!  I LOVE that the bride opted to wear a non-traditional cocktail dress to complement the event.  She owned her style and looked amazing in this Catherine Malandrino peplum number!  Paired with a vintage fur, it was a classic, lovely, bridal look.  

Check out the amazing images from The Photogenic Lab and fall in love with this fall affair just like we did!

Our stunning dining tables featured the most lovely flowers designed by the talented Somerset Design. Natural elements like pheasant feathers and maple leaves were an interesting, unexpected element against these bold blooms to make each arrangement (& the floral garland!) especially noteworthy.  Gold table settings were finished with place cards which added a pretty, personalized touch.  Very proud of these locally foraged fall leaves, spray painted gold & hand lettered by yours truly!  

As always, we couldn't have enjoyed such a successful evening without our amazing team of vendor partners! Thank you so very much!
