From the photographer, Chris Loring Photography: We assembled a team of elite Colorado wedding vendors to create an inspiring and beautiful winter wedding styled shoot. Our color palette is based on the 2015 Pantone color of the year, Marsala, with a little bit of soft green, shades of pink, and ivory to compliment it. Sara Brown Weddings helped us bring our theme to life. Our shoot includes images of our tablescape in both natural and in candle light, as well as snowy romantic couples portraits, beautiful detail images, and a unique after-dark image of our bride and groom under the stars.
We chose Granby Ranch for our styled shoot; snow was a must so we knew that we had to look at mountain venues to get the feel we were going for. Granby Ranch has one of Colorado’s most incredible wedding ceremony locations, on top of a mountain accessed by ski lift with incredible views and the most perfect aspen grove.
Our decor elements include an incredible fur-wrapped bouquet filled with pine cones, Marsala toned peonies, jingle bells, peppermint bark, hand knit flowers, roses, holly, and fresh picked cotton by Love Letters Floral Design.
We put our bride in a sweet designer lace gown by Blush from Hayley Paige courtesy of a&be Bridal Shop in Denver, and accessorized her with some of the beautiful custom pieces from EYM Bridal Designs. Her cotton long sleeve lace top is from Target; this is our homage to the laid back bride who wants something warm and cozy that feels like home on her wedding day. It is truly beautiful paired with her $3000 wedding gown!
The tablescape is built on a stunning hand made reclaimed wood farm table by the founders of Old Wood Soul, topped with a stunning floral arrangement, gold candlesticks and flatware from Ultra Pom rentals, wood chargers, white dishware with gold accents, luxury printed napkins, and some incredible high end custom paper goods with hand calligraphy on the envelopes by Blue Ink Studios.
Gold Mine Cupcakes created a custom winter display of cupcakes with 4 flavors (Turtle Delight, Choconilla, Diamond White, and Cinnamon Spice) decorated perfectly to fit our theme.
