Styled Shoot: Southern Barn Elegance

This  chic styled shoot takes place in a beautiful barn adorned with sheer fabric, wood branches, greenery and lots of twinkle lights. Tall silver vases overflowing with florals and a moss runner with succulents beautify the rustic table.  These nature-inspired details bring the outside in and add a touch of luxe.

A Rocky Mountain Wedding

Stephanie & Jared  |  June 13th

From the bride: Three words…..One. Long. Engagement. We were engaged for almost two years prior to the wedding day. Jared was in school until the December prior to the wedding. So, with that kind of stress we thought it was best for us to hold some of the wedding planning until he was finished. That left us six months to actually accomplish most of the work.

We wanted our wedding to match our lifestyle….we love the outdoors and boating. So we went with a bit of outdoor rustic theme with nautical elements.

 All in all, the wedding planning ended up being mostly a team effort. We had some rocky roads in the planning, but we managed to not kill each other! It was not always a fun process, so we hated and enjoyed it all at the same time. We just had to remember to celebrate the big decision maker days and try to enjoy as much as possible. I feel like we accomplished that task… End of day…we are married! And we are happy!

From the Magazine: Garden Chic at Flying Dog Ranch

From the couple: We visited all the popular venues in the Aspen area, but started feeling a little discouraged because nothing really matched our vision until we visited Flying Dog Ranch.  As soon as we walked onto the property, it was love at first site. Lydia gave us a tour and we kept looking at each other thinking, this is going to be way outside our budget. We were shocked to hear it was half the cost of the other venues we had seen, and we committed on the spot to having the wedding there!

From the Magazine: Tradition in the Mountains

A Traditional Wedding in the Rocky Mountains | Colorado Weddings Magazine

Today, we are featuring the couple that graces our cover, Maureen & Shawn. Their destination wedding in Steamboat Springs was a mix of traditional elements with a mountain vibe. They incorporated a color palette of greens and neutrals with gold accents designed by Quintessential Weddings. We especially love all the mountaintop images of the couple beautifully captured by Rachel Havel.

I had a few veil malfunctions. My husband stepped on it during the ceremony and it jerked my head back. That caused a lot of laughs. My veil also got stuck on a post as we were doing our grand exit from the church. It flew off, but I just kept going.” A Traditional Wedding in the Rocky Mountains | Colorado Weddings Magazine A Traditional Wedding in the Rocky Mountains | Colorado Weddings Magazine A Traditional Wedding in the Rocky Mountains | Colorado Weddings Magazine A Traditional Wedding in the Rocky Mountains | Colorado Weddings Magazine A Traditional Wedding in the Rocky Mountains | Colorado Weddings Magazine

Styled Shoot: You Are My Happy

From the photographer, Kari Geha Photography: This may be a styled shoot, but this couple is a real life couple and are adorably sweet together. Victor is also a photographer and met his muse, Jessica, on a shoot. The two compliment each other so well. While I would be taking his individual portraits, I would catch him looking over my shoulder and smiling. I would look back, and of course, he was swooning over her. She would be giggling. It was the sweetest of interactions between these two!
