Shelby & Brenton | DENVER, COLORADO

Did you hear?! Pantone just released the 2019 color of the year and it’s Living Coral! According to Pantone.com this gorgeous tone is “An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.”

We love this beautiful, bright color and couldn’t help but recall a number of fabulous events we’ve designed inspired this color. This Spring wedding of Shelby & Brenton this past May was far ahead of the trend and featured this beautiful color in a variety of ways. We’re thrilled to share this beautiful day filled with so much love, and lots and lots of yummy c o r a l details!

One of the biggest regrets we hear from couples  after the big day is that they didn't hire a videographer.  We understand how the day flies by in a flash, and love to recommend a great cinematography team to help tell the tale of the day!

Going through the archives & flashing back to one of our favorite weddings for one of our favorite couples!  Check out our very own Event Designer, Meredith's big day, so eloquently documented in this special video!

There are a few locations and venues in Colorado that never get old.  The natural beauty (year round) and hospitality keep us coming back again and again.  Devil's Thumb Ranch is one of those venues- it's simply incredible!  Tara & Dale had been guests at a few weddings we had planned for friends of theirs throughout the past few years, so when it came time to plan their wedding, at the ever fabulous Devil's Thumb, we were beyond excited to finally work with these two and help bring their wedding vision to life!  In such a spectacular setting as this, we knew we wanted an organic approach to highlight what was already there - lots of whites and greenery created a lush, natural feel without distracting from the striking mountain views and Colorado architecture. Combined with special personal touches, I am SO in love with how it came together!

While this job is not always easy, it DOES come with a lot of perks!  Traveling to fabulous destinations to celebrate love is a big work perk for which we are so grateful!  We are lucky to take on a few destination weddings each year, so when Jenni & Cody contacted us to help tell their love story and create a three day event for 100 of their closest friends and family at the brand new JW Marriott Los Cabos, we said "Si!", and packed our bags to head to magical Mexico.  Working with Jenni & Cody through the entire process was an absolute blast.  These two are ridiculously hilarious, super lively & fun, and SO loved by the most warm and genuine friends and family they share together.  This wedding was unlike any other: the bridal party danced down the aisle, the groom surprised the bride with their favorite show tune, and all of the guests joined in song after I DO. We were all just singing and dancing and basking in their love and joy! Being a part of this destination celebration was a career highlight, and one we'll never forget!

We have a serious love affair with winter weddings.  Living in colorful Colorado, weddings are gorgeous year-round, but there's just something so romantic about creating cozy celebrations in those cooler months!  

Since we don't get to plan as many snowy wonderland weddings as we'd like, we decided to curate a little style shoot to showcase a lovely bride & her maids in some gorgeous winter looks with some of our favorite vendors.  

We're proud of how this all came together, and thrilled to say this was just featured on Couture Colorado Weddings this week!  Check out more of the loveliness on their wonderful blog here.

Styled shoots are SO much fun!  While they are a big commitment for the contributing vendors, they give us an opportunity to exercise creative freedom and think out-of-the-box with themes, concepts & design... Always such a treat for us creative types!    

Together with the lovely and talented McCall of Lucky Malone Photography,  we collaborated to dream up this Retro Moto fall shoot over lattes on Larimer Square.  We had an absolute blast planning the shoot- selecting the perfect partners, design elements, and all the amazing, yet non-traditional clothes & accessories (moto goggles, anyone?)!

love, LOVE! | lasting marriages

It's no secret we love LOVE.  & of course, weddings.  Weddings are the ultimate celebration of love, but after that, comes marriage...  

Sadly, today, enduring, solid & loving marriages seem to be somewhat rare.  That said, I feel it's important to take a personal moment to honor the life & legacy of my wonderful grandparents and their epic love story.

I hate to play favorites, but the First Annual Wylder Nation Foundation Living Like a Warrior Gala could very easily the best, most special organization & event to which I have ever contributed.  

I have had the pleasure of knowing the Founders, Steven & Shannon Laffoon for over a decade, and the way they choose to live their lives, embodying the warrior spirit, is inspiring to say the very least. I am in awe of them- the mission, the love, and how they so perfectly honor the tragically short but powerful & significant life of their son, Wylder James.
