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.
