From Lindsey Dienstbach, Bello & Blue Events: Inspired by the always alluring Italian movie star, Sophia Loren, for this wedding inspiration shoot we set out to create a timeless, romantic and glamorous European affair. Highlighted with a few fabulous details, we curated a luxurious vibe, rich in color, to highlight the fall season, and feel like this celebration was straight from a castle in Tuscany. The beautiful Italian architecture and majestic setting of the Retreat at Solterra transported us from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains to the heart of Italy.
We designed with a color palette of rich colors found in Italy’s wine region landscape. Deep reds, purples, greens, gold, and a pop of Tiffany blue that we found in an antique china pattern perfectly complemented the setting and the autumn season.
To help capture the essence of Italian glamour, our couple was styled to the nines. With the groom in the most dapper steel gray tux, the bride donned diamonds, fur, Louboutins, and a Kelly Faetanini bridal gown before changing into a poppy red Monique Lhuillier party dress, perfect for dancing the night away!
Our bride and groom arrived to their swanky soiree chauffeured in a restored vintage London Cab, and after dining al fresco, bid “Arriverdverci!” to guests, as they zoomed off on a cherry red vespa to Happily Ever After!
The wood feasting table-top featured custom designed menus and place cards, as well as cut crystal glassware, gold flatware, and the most beautiful mismatched teacups and china to add interest and detail making each place setting unique.
The elegance continued into soft seating vignettes accented by gold and crystal candelabras and to-die-for lush florals that included organic Tuscan inspired elements like real grapes, artichokes, and pears, in addition to an olive branch garland accented with deep-toned garden roses, anemones, and dahlias.

Inspired by the rustic Flatirons of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, this Bohemian styled elopement marries vibrant colored flowers and ethereal attire with the natural landscape of the Flatirons. A beautiful day for an intimate ceremony in the mountains to celebrate life and love in nature!
From the bride, Sarah: Daniel and I are both avid skiers. We knew we wanted to get married in the mountains, it’s our favorite place in the whole world. We wanted a luxurious après ski wedding with a warm holiday glow and our closest family plus a few friends who were crazy enough to make the trip.
THE DAY OF
We had a blizzard the day of our wedding. The most beautiful thick white snowy blanket that fell steadily for the whole day and into the night, it was magical!!
Our reception was filled with gold glittery candles, red holly berries, brown pinecones on deep green pine boughs, and aspen tree accents. I felt like I was outside in the mountains—but inside of the coziest lodge glowing with the most lovely holiday sparkle!
Be chill. It’s your one and only dream-come-true day to celebrate the love of your life and the beginning of the rest of your forever together. At a certain point you let it go and just go with it because the day is going to be as wonderful as you allow it to be. Our day was wonderful and I did my best to soak up every moment
