Love Letters Floral Design will be exhibiting at Weddings by Warwick on Sunday, October 26, 2014 at the Warwick Denver Hotel. Brides and grooms, join us for this fun and inspiring event!
Colorado is a premier wedding location for rustic, country, and mountain weddings, but who says you can’t have a tropical wedding in this land of Rocky Mountain paradise? Jennie and Clint did just that. They tied the knot this summer at the Butterfly Pavilion inside the Wings of the Tropics Conservatory. Lush and tropical it was – the only thing missing was the beach!
For Jennie’s bouquet we paired silk blooms with fresh flowers to create an incredibly gorgeous cascading bouquet, which included silk white hibiscus, silk plumerias, born blue dendrobium orchids, white Hawaiian dendrobium orchids, vanda orchids, white phalaenopsis orchids, green aspidistra leaves, xanadu leaves, leather leaf fern, and lily grass. Her two maids of honor carried hand-tied bouquets of white Asiatic lilies which we painted blue, born blue dendrobium orchids, white Hawaiian dendrobium orchids, leather leaf fern, aspidistra leaves, and lily grass. Her bridesmaids carried cascading pomander balls of born blue dendrobium orchids, white Hawaiian dendrobium orchids, painted blue white Asiatic lilies, aspidistra leaves, and lily grass, with a twisted ti leaf handle. The best man wore a boutonniere made from a born blue dendrobium orchid bloom and a white Hawaiian dendrobium orchid bloom with a touch of lily grass, while the groomsmen wore born blue dendrobium orchid boutonnieres, also with a touch of lily grass.
I had the opportunity to work with Adrienne and Amanda of The Gardner Effect, whom I had met earlier this year at the Rocky Mountain Bridal Show. Adrienne and Amanda did a wonderful job coordinating Jennie and Clint’s wedding.
Thank you to Enoch Photography for capturing this unique wedding and for sharing the lovely pictures!
Jennie and Clint – congratulations to you both and all the best!

When I met with Jessica and Jared to discuss their wedding flowers I knew that they were going to be a fun couple to work with. Easy-going and happy, Jessica and Jared were married over Labor Day Weekend at the Space Gallery in Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe. Their wedding was unique, lively, and modern.
Their wedding colors were sleek and simple – black and white, so they wanted to the flowers to be the ‘pops’ of color. For her bridal bouquet Jessica chose a beautifully vibrant combination of Picasso calla lilies, red ranunculuses, circus roses, pink zinnias, Thomas Edison dahlias, purple cushion mums, orange gerbera daisies, succulents, and Israeli ruskus. Her bridesmaids carried smaller bouquets of circus roses, red ranunculuses, purple cushion mums, pink zinninas, and hot pink gerbera daisies. Jessica loved the idea of movement, so to create that effect we incorporated strands of bear grass looped within the bouquets. How the bouquets stood out against the dresses! Jared wore a simple boutonniere of a red ranunculus bloom with a small accent of Israeli ruskus and loop of bear grass, and the groomsmen wore red ranunculus boutonnieres with a loop of bear grass. So. Much. Color!!!

The Rocky Mountains are by far one of the most gorgeous places to get married. This summer I had the privilege of creating the floral arrangements for a beautiful wedding in Breckenridge, Colorado. Kristen and Brian tied the knot with a lovely ceremony and reception at Main Street Station. Their wedding was incredible soft and romantic, incorporating chocolate brown, champagne, and blush. For Kristen’s bouquet we chose a beautiful combination of carmel antike garden roses, quicksand roses, vendela roses, creamy pink spray roses, and white ranunculus, all wrapped together in lace. To make her bouquet extra special we included antique brooches that had been in Kristen’s family for a long time. The bridesmaids carried smaller bouquets of romantic antike garden roses, quicksand roses, vendela roses, white ranunculus, and light pink spray roses, wrapped together with a chocolate brown satin ribbon. Brian’s boutonniere was created from creamy pink spray rose blooms with an ivory satin ribbon, and the groomsmen wore light pink spray rose boutonnieres with chocolate brown satin ribbon.

Earlier this summer I had the honor of designing the floral arrangements for our friends, Tiffany and Tim. Tiffany and Tim met several years ago in Ghana, Africa, and eventually ended up in Colorado. I met them through a mutual friend in 2011 and for a few months they were also neighbors of mine. Tiffany and Tim are incredibly fun and adventurous people, and they love being outside. They even got engaged on top of a 14er! It was only fitting to hold their wedding in the mountains at Snow Mountain Ranch in Granby, Colorado.
Their wedding incorporated many beautifully rustic and vintage elements that Tiffany designed herself. Succulents were planted in antique tea cups for the table centerpieces, antique china plates were used for the dinnerware, and mason jars were used as glassware during the reception, which were then given to the guests as wedding favors. Tim crafted a beautiful portable beer dispenser made from pieces of an old fence that he and Tiffany took down from the back year of their new house. So many beautiful wedding details!
Tiffany chose a gorgeous combination of soft and muted colors for the flowers. Her bridal bouquet consisted of peach aubade roses, light pink stock, billy balls, dark pink alstromeria, pink wax flower, and seeded eucalyptus. We also included a few gorgeous succulents that she had growing at home. Her lovely flower girls carried bouquets of peach aubade roses, dark pink alstromeria, pink wax flower, and a few small succulents. Tim wore a succulent boutonniere, with a touch of pink wax flower and seeded eucalyptus. The adorable ring bearers wore boutonnieres made from succulent blooms and pink wax flower.
Thank you to Brian of Brian Paul Mallik Photography for the beautiful pictures!
Congratulations, Tiffany and Tim! So many wonderful changes in your life. Much happiness to you both!
