The Rocky Mountain Bridal Show

In one weekend, one of my best friends flew in from Cali to visit, I did my first bridal show, and my first nephew was born!  It was a crazy weekend, but a great one!  When I found out my sister's due date was 10 days before my bridal show, I had a little feeling that with my luck, she would have him on the day of the bridal show!  And she almost did!  Grant Lawson Powell was born the on April 25, 2009, a healthy and beautiful baby (And I am convinced he is smarter, better, and more handsome than any baby I know)!  

The next day, with the help of one of my most dearest friends, Morgan, (who flew in from Cali to help me with the bridal show!) and my amazing husband, we did the Rocky Mountain Bridal Show.  But having a booth at the show of course was not enough, so we also did all the bouquets for the runway show (:  So our style!  Anyway, the show was an absolute blast for several reasons.  

1.  Morgan is one of my favorite people in the world.  But beyond that, she is incredibly creative, talented, and gifted.  She helped me design my booth and of course all the flowers.  I loved designing with her because it reminds me of the good ol' days when I would con her into helping me do weddings and events and it would be a crazy furry of flowers and fun!  We always have fun when we do this stuff and she always makes everything better.

2.  My husband was and is always a gift.  When I wanted to peek in on the runway show, of course he was there when I got back, faithfully talking to brides about peonies and ranunculus.  And of course the brides loved him because, well, who doesn't?

3.  I got to meet a lot of great vendors.  Some favorite booths were Pink Dahlia Designs (a new friend and fabulous florist), The Curtis Hotel, and JS Design Custom (an amazing invitation and paper business).

Below are some pics from the show and of my handsome new nephew.  Enjoy (:


Taylor Hess

Here are some pics from a small wedding I did.  I absolutely loved working with Taylor because in the process of working with her we became friends!  The lovebirds were married in Hawaii the week prior and came back to have their reception at a private residence in the foothills here in Golden.  We kept a Hawaiian theme for the flowers using bright reds, oranges, pinks, and yellows.  Enjoy!


Photoshoot at The Hotel Monoco

When my friend David Gaston called me up and asked if I would like to be a part of a bridal photo-shoot at The Hotel Monoco in downtown Denver, I jumped at the chance!  I love this boutique hotel, with its rich colors and amazing staff.  So I designed a few bouquets and bouts for the shoot and headed down to Denver!  It was a blast being a part of this shoot.  I love watching how photos come together and it was fun to meet other professionals in the wedding industry!  

Here is the amazing list of people that made the shoot happen:

Amanda & Phil

Enjoy these lovely photos of the flowers at Amanda & Phil's wedding.  Amanda really wanted her wedding to be a giant party, fun, and casual!  Her flowers followed suit--- We used a pink and orange color palate (a favorite of mine) with a very free, textured look.  The flowers in her bouquets include peonies, ranunculus, calla lilies, gloriosa lilies, and roses.  Enjoy these lovely pics from Dahl Photography.
