From the photographer: It all started with a dress. We were so inspired by this gown that we knew we had to use it in an innovative and refreshing way. We were dreaming of a perfectly pink, whimsical, refreshing spring garden inspiration shoot. We started showing “Lindsay” off to many of our vendor friends and we knew we wanted to work with people who were just as inspired as we were. Somehow, this pretty little number nestled it’s way into all of our hearts and created this rare form of magic. The magic grew and grew. Our shoot seemed to take on a life of it’s own and evolved right before our eyes. We started referring to it as our “Through the looking glass” shoot, as a little nod to “Alice In Wonderland.” Like Alice, it grew and evolved so much throughout the planning process. Before long, we had a cake that matched the print of the gown, Alice In Wonderland inspired treats, paper cranes, paper lanterns and collectible rabbits involved in the shoot. Everyone’s heart became intertwined in this day and it quickly became very personal for each and every one of us that there were. Now, there is something to be said about working with vendors that share the same vision as you. Since it was so near and dear to each of our hearts, the enthusiasm of the day was absolutely infectious.

From the bride: We live in Los Angeles, but I’m from Colorado, and a mountain girl at heart. For our wedding, we wanted to be surrounded by the mountains and be able to smell the pine trees.  We also wanted our day to be classy and elegant with a color palette of blush, cream, and rose gold.

The Theme

Let Love Grow was a theme for the wedding. We want our love to always be growing, so we incorporated it in many ways throughout the wedding such as a tree planting ceremony within the ceremony and potted succulents for the escort cards.

 

The Dress

I wanted a dress that was different and I loved the idea of having a light blush dress.  I didn’t think I would like the style of my dress (I thought I’d go with a mermaid style), but the moment I tried it on, I knew it was the perfect combination of classic yet unique.

 

 

Advice

Get organized. Create a very detailed day-of schedule, stay on top of your guest list, finalize your seating chart and make escort cards.  These things will make all the difference.  You’ll be less stressed on the day and your guests will have a better time at your wedding.  Hire a day-of coordinator so you can pass all this along and just enjoy your big day.

From the bride, Laura: It was a beautiful September day in the Roaring Fork Valley without a cloud in the sky and a comfortable 70 degrees. The garden at Flying Dog Ranch was perfectly manicured with an array of natural colors and flowers. Guests enjoyed cocktails and a breathtaking view of Mt. Sopris and the valley while they waited for the ceremony to begin.

The wedding party walked into “Good Day Sunshine” by the Beatles and I walked in with “Her Comes the Sun” by the Beatles (pretty appropriate for the day). The ceremony was held around the pond and was only about 8 minutes long.

We had lawn games setup around the garden for everyone to enjoy including a game called “Kan Jam” which incorporated throwing a frisbee which is how we met, playing ultimate frisbee.

We did our own photo booth. I bought a polaroid camera, props, and let people go nuts in our DIY photo booth. Everyone loved it. The photos along with a mini tree photo holder were their party gifts.
