Romantic Colorado Mountain Wedding

Congratulations Beth & Joel on a gorgeous and romantic wedding celebration!

Everything from the venue, to the surroundings to the Bride herself, couldn't have been any more gorgeous!

The wedding was held at the famous historical Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO. The hotel is famous for many reasons, including being features in Stephen King's "The Shining".

Me and my husband in front of the hotel. Hi!
The Bride chose coral, pink and light green as her wedding colors, and they were perfect accents to the ivory and pearl accents on her dress and backdrop colors at the reception space.

The bridesmaids and their flowers.
In order to secure some of the most precious of blooms, yours truly purchased some of the flowers at the NYC flower district and few out with them in my carry on all the way to Colorado. The flowers survived the journey and looked great in the bouquets, blooms and centerpieces.

Check out some of the pictures!

The centerpieces consisted of a mix of three milk glass vases that the bride and her mom found at flea markets and garage sales in the months leading up to the wedding.

 The Bride's family took on the challenge of growing some flowers for the wedding, and I was beyond ecstatic to be able to use the dusty miller, snapdragons, cone flower heads, phlox, and aspen leaves...among others. It was so special to see that their months of watering and weeding produced such gorgeous results.

Congrats to Beth and Joel! Can't wait to see the professional photos!

Moroccan/Alhambra Inspired Wedding

Bright colors and interesting textures were key for Bride Stephanie's Morocco/Alhambra inspired wedding held this past weekend at My Moon Restaurant in Brooklyn.

Bride Stephanie took inspiration from the venue's decor, and we were able to work with her vision and create bright and colorful centerpieces, mini arrangements, gold toned silk table runners, wedding cake accented with the quatrefoil design, a fun wedding ceremony arch and flower accents for the metal lanterns...among other things!

Check them out!
Large centerpiece in brass bowl. The centerpiece was filled with a mix of bright flowers and interesting greenery. The custom made gold toned silk table runners really made the whole arrangement pop.

The french vanilla, raspberry and buttercream cake was styled to coordinate with the quatrafoil pattern used throughout the wedding, and we decorated it with fun and bright blooms. 

The ceremony aisle chairs were accented with colorful blooms.

The venue had a great wall of jars and hanging vessels that we filled with fun and unique flowers, such as this giant thistle.

The bride's bouquet. Featuring peonies, garden roses, prothea, cock's comb, spray roses, billy buttons, thistle, winter berries and orchids....among other flowers. It was a large bouquet and the flowers represented a more subdued and pale version of the bright and colorful wedding flowers.

Sample of the different bouts and corsages. We loved using blue thistle because of the great blue color, and because it kept the bouts very masculine

Groom's bout, which included thistle, spray rose, aster and freesia. 
We loved working with Stephanie and can't wait to see the professional photos!
