Summer Garden Soiree | Crooked Willow Farms 

This weddings rocks.  My favorite thing about it was working so closely with the bride and her very design-savvy mother.  By the end of the planning process, I felt like I had made some great new friends.  It was just one of those special ones that leaves a lasting impression and a good feeling that you can only get from working with wholesome, wonderful people like this bunch.

It was also special because we were able to take some of our very new design learnings from a recent rock-your-world-kind-of-floral-workshop we had attended, and immediately apply them to the design of this wedding with stunning results.  This would have all been exciting in and of itself, but then Brumley & Wells came on the scene and literally blew us out of the water with their gorgeous film images...It was pretty much a dream come true.  We now literally talk the ear off of anyone getting married about how amazing they are.  Because they are.

Anyway, the truth about us is that we love to design in a variety of styles.  We don't really like to pigeon-hole ourselves into one style because that can get uninteresting really fast.  We like sophisticated, high-end weddings, we like barn weddings, we looooove a farm wedding, we like urban weddings, desert weddings, and modern weddings.  But when it really comes down to it, I feel like these centerpieces and bouquets were a little extension of my true heart.  I love the natural, gardeny, whimsical shape of them and couldn't be happier with a color palette of pinks, corals, whites, yellows, and greens.  You really just can't go wrong with coral peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, scabiosa flower, jasmine vine, geranium...

Sorry about the ramble.  But come on.  This wedding rocks.  Agreed?  To hear more backstory on this wedding, check out the feauture on Style Me Pretty.

Purple Glamour | Editorial Shoot w/ Brumley & Wells

I am so excited to share this shoot with you today!  It marks so many milestones for us as a business and for that reason, feels special, personal, and authentic to who we are as a brand, as a company, and even as people.  

It's an exciting and daunting thing to start becoming who you want to be in this industry.  When we designed this shoot last August, we were at a turning point as a business, and this shoot (as well as a few others we are excited to show you soon!) helped us answer a lot of questions about who we are, who we want to be, and how we're going to get there...and for that, we are beyond grateful.  

While we had long-time admired and respected Brumley & Wells for their dreamy film images, we never expected we'd fall in love with them as people as much as we loved them for their work.  We had the best day designing, dreaming, and ooohing and awwing over their amazing images.  It's fun to work with people you feel like are instant family, easy to get along with, and have a vision for their business that is on a similar path as yours.  

Enjoy this lovely shoot.  The design concept was really simple:  Florals that are both glamorous and wild, a sprawling bouquet with fancy ribbon treatments, and achieving a design aesthetic in the Colorado outdoors that is both sophisticated and glamorous...Enjoy (:  To see more, check out the amazing feature by Style Unveiled.
