Bohemian elegance in Vail Colorado

Remote mountain settings create the most intimate environments for weddings (and are by far one of our most favorite settings).  Piney River Ranch encompasses all aspects of what makes mountain weddings so dreamy … set on the edge of Piney Lake, and nestled at the foot of the majestic Gore Range.  Its feelings of seclusion and being far from the everyday world has all the feels of your own little piece of heaven.  Its striking contrast of the raw wild surroundings, wildflower covered meadows & tranquil lake create the perfect palette for your imagination to run free.

We loved everything about this bohemian elegance inspired nuptials.  The bright summery florals beautifully complimented the natural landscape.  Soft yellow ranunculus, raspberry hued dahlias & lupins and lush greens evoked all the happy feelings of early summer.  We had some much fun creating personalized welcome boxes full of Coloradan goodies for guest along with the signature drink bar featuring Colorado’s own Stanahan’s whiskey and the fire side hot toddy bar & canoe ride.  All the personal details created an evening to enjoy by all.

{side note:  the bride wore a beautiful french silk robe, slip & gown by the lace atelier and lets just say all are swoon worthy…}

Intimate Dallas Wedding { the Dallas Arboretum }

We knew the first time we met Tara to discuss the lovely details of her & Dan’s summer wedding we were a perfect fit.  Lets just say… she had me at gold beat box + flowers  (an ode to Dans love of music)!  Tara, who operates a vintage resale shop { Victor & Paulette } had thought of the most personal details for her & Dans intimate wedding at the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Garden.  From hand stitched pillows & napkins inspired by her invitation to wax sealed favor boxes filled with SweeTarts, which Dan gave Tara on their first date, she had thought of everything.  It was no surprise when we received a call from an editor at Martha Stewart Magazine gathering details about the floral selection we choose for Tara & Dan’s wedding being featured in the Summer publications Real Weddings!  Check out the amazing details below!

….oh, and that dress tho– L O V E her dress!

Fresh & Timeless Texas Wedding

Who doesn’t love crisp summer whites paired with lush natural greens? We do!!   This classically fresh color palette was perfect for Shakira & Travis’s summer nuptials at The White Sparrow Barn in Quinlan, Tx.  Shakira knew she wanted an all white wedding from the moment she begin planning.  We paired the summer white with natural greens found in foliage to create a timeless look for their Texas wedding.
