Love Letters Floral Design » Best Denver Wedding Flowers

Laurel and Joel were married this past summer at Highlands Ranch Mansion, a gorgeous historical building located in Highlands Ranch, CO. I personally adore old buildings. I grew up in a 1920’s house built by my great-grandparents. Our house was made from stone that had been blasted out from the neighborhood rock quarry. While I didn’t grow up in a mansion, being at the Highlands Ranch Mansion brought a sense of nostalgia – it just felt good to be there. The building is nothing less than impressive and is an incredible place to tie the knot.

Laurel chose a color palette for her flowers that complimented her beautiful auburn hair. Her bouquet was created from Juliet Garden Roses, Peach Aubade Roses, White Anemone, Maroon Clematis, Blush Ranunculus, Black Cat Scabiosa, Dusty Miller, Succulents, and Magnolia Leaves, which were all wrapped together in a gold ribbon.

A big thank you goes to Kerri from A Touch of Bliss for coordinating Laurel and Joel’s wedding. Kerri is an incredibly dynamic lady who knows how to throw great events! Another big thank you goes to Hardy of Hardy Klahold Photography. This was my first time working with Hardy and I was blown away when I saw Laurel and Joel’s wedding album. Hardy’s work is emotional, dramatic, and truly unique. Hardy, that you so much for allowing me to use your images on my blog.

Laurel and Joel, it was such a pleasure! Your wedding was so beautiful and I loved being a part of your special day. All the best to you both!!

Early in 2015, Sara of Sara Brown Weddings, Chris of Chris Loring Photography, and I got together and discussed some ideas for a potential styled shoot. Over the next few months we went about designing an organic farm-to-table wedding scene filled with root vegetables, which we dubbed “Root Shoot”. We wanted to create something very earthy, natural, and clean, but elegant at the same time. We settled on a soft color palette of whites, greens, blues, and purples, with just a touch of gold. The bridal bouquet included White Peonies, Alabaster Garden Roses, Purple Clematis, Purple Millet, Blue Thistle, Rosemary, Exploding Grass (one of my favorite grasses of all time!), Angel Hair Vine, and white turnips. That’s right, there were indeed white turnips in the bridal bouquet – turnips both in whole form, as well as sliced turnips that were reassembled to look like flowers. A small white radish was added to the groom’s boutonniere. I just love adding unique elements to my designs!

Our shoot was held at the perfect Colorado farm setting, Pastures of Plenty. Despite rain in the days leading up to the shoot and in the forecast the days following the shoot, we had the driest day that week, with only a light sprinkle mid-afternoon. What we created that day was absolutely awe-inspiring. Words cannot describe how much I loved working on this gorgeous styled shoot! Not only did I have another opportunity to collaborate with some of my favorite wedding vendors, but one of my yoga teachers (she’s absolutely stunning inside and out) graciously agreed to be one of our models. In a random and unrelated way two of my passions, flowers and yoga, came together in the same setting. I was beyond excited!

A HUGE thank you to our models, Laura and Matt, and all the incredible vendors that shared their time, talents, and/or supplies to make this shoot possible: Patina Preferred, Emma & Grace Bridal Studio, Ted’s Clothier, Allwell Rents, Nicole Toledo Makeup Artistry, Lindsay Shipton of Inspire Salons and Spas, Ella Vine & Co., and Kelley Kakes.

Lastly, I am honored to say that this shoot was featured in the national publication, Burnett’s Boards. You can see it featured HERE.

2015 was the year I really got my feet wet with styled shoots. Not only was I involved in a variety of styled shoots, but I took the reins in coordinating a few of my own. Styled shoots are hugely popular among wedding professionals – for good reason. Putting together a mock wedding scene is a chance for vendors to collaborate in a less restrictive setting. Not only is there more time to play around with the photography than during a real wedding, but vendors can bring their own vision to life in regards their specific craft. It’s a time when out-of-the-box creativity can really flourish.

This Love is in Bloom styled shoot was formed around the idea to incorporate a love letter in a bouquet. The shoot was executed on one of the snowiest springs days in Denver, with almost blizzard-like conditions. The incredible team I worked with braved the rough weather. What we created that day was nothing short of amazing. Thank you to Laura of Laura Murray Photography for working her magic with the camera. Gorgeous, gorgeous images. And thank you to all the vendors who made this shoot possible: Patina Preferred, Felicity Allyse Floral & Paper Artistry, Splendor for Your Guests, Annemarie Veils and Adornments, Emma & Grace Bridal, Donna Beth Creations, Tears McFarlane House, Alchemy Creative, Astonishing Cakes, and Kelsey Luciano Productions. Lastly, thank you to our gorgeous models, Madi and Tasos. You were an incredible team to work with!

It was an honor to featured in the National Publication, Grey Likes Weddings. You can see the styled shoot featured HERE. Also, the lovely behind-the-scenes video created by Kelsey Luciano Productions can be viewed HERE.

Susan and Phil, an incredibly sweet couple, were married on a brilliant day last summer in Breckenridge, CO at The Lodge at Breckenridge. Their thoughtfully designed wedding in a gorgeous mountainous setting made for an absolutely breathtaking event.

Susan chose a soft and feminine color palette for her wedding flowers. Her bridal bouquet included white anemones, Keira Garden Roses, Pink O’Hara Garden Roses, light pink stock, ivory spray roses, and Queen Anne’s Lace. Her bridesmaids carried smaller bouquets of Akito Roses, pink anemone, light pink stock, light pink spray roses, Queen Anne’s Lace, and Silver Dollar Eucalyptus. Phil wore an ivory spray rose boutonniere, while his groomsmen wore light pink spray rose boutonnieres.

Thank you to the talented Talia of Blissful Impressions for the lovely images! And thank you to A Touch of Bliss for coordinating this fabulous celebration!

Susan and Phil, it was an honor to be a part of your beautiful wedding. Congratulations and all the best to you both!

This summer I had the wonderful opportunity to design the floral arrangements for some fabulous friends of mine, Erin and James. I have known Erin almost as long as I have been living in Colorado, which recently passed the eight year mark. Erin had started a creative writing group back in 2007 and being new to the area (and an English Literature major in college), I decided to join. Erin is a rock star with the pen. She has a somewhat sarcastic, yet incredibly witty humor. While the creative writing group has long been dissolved, Erin and I have remained good friends. James is equally as sharp and also very engaging. Together they are a dynamic couple. When Erin and James got engaged I was beyond thrilled.

Erin and James were married on the rooftop terrace of their condo building just outside of downtown Denver. It was one of those magnificent, sunny Colorado days with a bluebird sky as far as the eye could see. Their wedding was one of those extra special occasions when I was both a vendor, as well as a guest.

Erin’s bouquet was a modernized cascade, created from ivory peonies, white swan calla lilies, alabaster garden roses, white akito roses, silver brunia, Israeli ruskus, smilax, and lily grass.

Thank you to Selah Photography for the beautiful images! Thank you, also, to Sara of Sara Brown Weddings for a fabulous job in coordinating Erin and James’ wedding. Sara, it’s always a pleasure working with you!

Erin  and James – I am so thankful to call you good friends. Your wedding was epic, you both are amazing, and I wish you all the happiness in the world!
