Whimsical Wedding | Cottonwood Glen

True story:  One of our favorite client families to work with of all time called us to design their second daughter's wedding (which is is always such a compliment and treat!  See their other daughter's wedding here).  We were thrilled to get another opportunity to work with them.  Then!  Their venue had to shut down unexpectedly and they were left without a place to be married.  So, talk about making lemonade out of lemons!  This amazing family decided to open up their own wedding venue at their family-owned sporting club, Kiowa Creek in Bennett, CO.  So they did.  Their inaugural wedding at the venue was their very own daughter's wedding and let me tell you, it was BOMB!!!  We were so so excited to work with them on this wedding and love the unique ceremony space they created.  Just look!  I can't think of anywhere else in Colorado quite like this.

They also designed the most perfect cocktail hour/outdoor pergola area with room for a nice tented outdoor reception on a grass lawn.  It's literally perfect.  So the secret is out.  You need to be married at Cottonwood Glen!  You won't be disappointed and I am 100% confident you will have some new friends after working with them.  Cheers to you, Brianna!  You were the most gorgeous, amazing bride!  So excited for this new chapter in your life!  xoxo

Romantic Denver Wedding | Michele Hart

I love when I get photos back from a wedding we did and it looks like it wasn't located in Denver at all (no offense Denver - you know I love you!), but perhaps in some farway European city.  That is the power of this gorgeous bride, these amazing architectural shots, and the film photography genius behind Michele Hart Photography.

Hops Wedding | Denver, CO

I read a quote the other day from the creative director behind Chanel and Fendi, Karl Lagerfeld.  It said "Trendy is the last stage before tacky."  I felt like breathing a sigh of relief, agreeing so deeply with this simple statement.  I have wrestled over the last 8 years, to arrive at "my place" in floral design, namely a signature look and feel that regins true in all the weddings we design.  I've always wanted my bride to look back upon her flowers 20 years down the road and have them still feel beautiful and relevant.  And I think we've finally found our stride.  The last three years of design have been an absolute blessing.  We know who we are and classic designs in textural, colorful palettes is the name of the game for us.  We're really not the trendy pick and I love that.  And now that we know who we are, it's easy to walk confidently and not apologize for who we are.  It makes saying yes to the right things and saying no to the wrong things SO MUCH EASIER.  Classic is a good thing.  So is knowing who you are!  How I wish I could go back in time and start my business again knowing this.  Even so, I wouldn't change the journey, not one bit, because it has led me to this precious discovery.

This wedding is a perfect example of relevancy to culture (a running beer-theme throughout - perfect for fellow Denverites) and yet, I still feel like it was designed in a way that felt classic and true to our signature style.  I also loved all the creative ways that this theme showed up in the design of this wedding. Hops were in boutonnieres and bouquets and hops garlands were centerpieces that ran the length of long wooden tables.  Hops garlands were even hung from the ceiling, suspended over tables.  Arrangements were designed in beer bottles and other amber glass vessels.  I also love love love this team and always will: We Tie The Knots + Cori Cook Floral Design + Kerinsa Photography.  It's a win every time!
