A Sophisticated Fall Wedding Shoot at Denver Botanic Gardens

From the style team: Wilco Creative brought all the pieces of this beautiful day together by creating a wedding style that was classic and tailored. The inspiration came from the colors of a fig, the soft autumn weather, and a special vintage ring. To hail from Colorado calls for reckless abandon to embrace the fall season and celebrate marriage; one of the greatest events possible. There is something effortless and freeing about being able to traipse off wherever your heart leads you to share your vows and the mutual commitment of love. Surprisingly, one doesn’t need an officiant to get married in the beautiful state of Colorado. With the ease of performing your own ceremony, we still wanted to bring the touches of an important and tailored event. In fact, the simplicity of it all made our vision of creating a sophisticated fall garden wedding develop gracefully.

The bride’s dress was elegant with its simple lines and minimalistic embellishments. Her hair was effortless yet classic.

The bride’s ring is a vintage art deco engagement ring circa 1920 from Victor Barbone.  The ring centers a box-set old European cut diamond that has a low profile that rounded out our theme with subtle elegance.
