While we're wedding obsessed, we also love planning non-profit events, corporate affairs, AND over-the-top social gatherings!  When we were approached to plan this special 50th bday party, we jumped at the opportunity to infuse some of the guest of honor's favorite things into an elegant celebration for 50 of his closest friends and family to enjoy.

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.

Working with Lara & Ryan planning their Colorado rustic ranch wedding in Steamboat Springs was a dream.  Not only are they both warm, genuine, and fun people, but it was clear to see their mutual admiration for each other (love that!), and they were consistently upbeat, enjoying the planning process every step of the way! 

We invite you to check out the beauty of the day captured in the best possible way by the talented Ryan Olsen Photographer!
