McKenzie + Jayson // The Venue at Flying Horse

McKenzie and Jayson's wedding was such a beautiful day. They were married that morning at the temple in Denver and then celebrated with their friends and family at The Venue at Flying Horse. 

I loved creating her bouquets and arrangements with gorgeous peonies, sweet peas, ranunculus, garden roses, snowball viburnum, and a mix of beautiful foliage. We combined muted gold tones and birch to create an elegant and organic design.

Spring Styled Shoot :: Denver Collective

Spring offers so many wonderful blooms. Blooming branches and bulb flowers are some of my favorite. For this gorgeous shoot, I utilized plum branches, ranunculus, winter berry, hellebores, hyacinth, oncidium orchids, and beautiful garden roses. 

Working with these amazing Colorado wedding vendors was so much fun and I love how everything turned out. Enjoy! 

 

I love how artists see things in different ways and yet, similar at the same time. The first grouping of pictures if from Katherine Ridgely. She does an amazing job capturing the soft romantic feel. 

This second group of pictures is from Amy Caroline Photography. She too captures the soft romantic feel, but has a little different feel and emotion. I love the way both of them captured the day. 

Summer Tablescape

Summer is almost here! I love creating tablescapes for any type of occasion! It doesn't have to be complicated. I can create something beautiful with items that are special to you or items you already have in your home. 

Last year, I had the opportunity to create a gorgeous tablescape using items from my backyard as well as flowers found in Colorado gardens for Colorado Collective. Mary Andrews helped me plan the table setting with dishes from her grandmother and linens she had in her collection.  She also allowed us to use a gorgeous model home at The Farm from Keller Homes.

Using fruit and vegetables in your floral design is a great way to create interest and color! 

Using fruit and vegetables in your floral design is a great way to create interest and color! 

I used apple branches with apples attached, blooming oregano, boxwood, geranium, and lavender from my yard. I also picked up zinnias, allium, artichokes, roses, scabiosa (pin cushion), chocolate queen anne's lace, and japonica from the wholesaler. All of these flowers can be grown in Colorado though. I also placed figs, blackberries, rutabaga and a tropical fruit throughout the tablescape for color contrast and texture. Terrariums were added as well.  

Backyard Garden Party // Colorado Styling

I have been so anxious for warm weather. I've lived in Colorado my entire life, but the cold always seems to hang on too long for me. I'm ready to start my vegetable garden and am longing to see beautiful spring flowers, green grass, and blooming branches. 

To inspire you for the warmer days ahead, I put together a gorgeous table setting and tablescape for your next outdoor get-together. I wanted to create a soft, spring feel with coral, green, and touches of pink. I love mixing wood and metal so I incorporated the copper charger, gold flatware and glass with the cherry wood table. 

If you have a special dinner party or just want to get friends together, I would love to come help you design the table of your dreams. Great friends, fabulous food and drinks with gorgeous flowers should definitely be on the calendar this summer!

Colorado Elopement

One of the highlights to my year was being a part of this amazing elopement. I loved all of the fabulous vendors I worked with and Candace and Blaine were so sweet! 

We started the morning hiking in the dark, pulling flowers in a wagon up the mountain, and getting to enjoy an amazing sunrise! It was such a gorgeous day filled with laughter and love. 

I loved that they gave me such freedom in the floral design. The colors were a soft, fall palette. Thank you for including me in the special moments of your day.

Anthropologie Elopement // The Painted Mines

Goodness, I should blog more often! I'll try to be better! Allison and I have tried to put together a styled shoot for years...I'm not exaggerating, years!! We finally got the opportunity to do it this fall at the Painted Mines. I love how it turned out! Fall in Colorado is the best! 

We were so excited when Anthropologie agreed to work with us!  Allison and I LOVE all things Anthro and absolutely loved working and getting to know Sarah! She's amazing and knows her stuff! Our models were not only gorgeous, but hilarious and I'm so thankful to have worked with them. Kelli did such an amazing job on Lydia's hair and the table made by Brittny, with Cacti & Mint Vintage, was perfect!
