I knew the bride from having worked with her family for her older sister's wedding the year prior, so of course I was already endeared to her and thrilled to be brought on board to plan with her and her family once again. Roo & Elias chose the bride's family's private ranch in Estes Park for their June wedding. It was a weekend extravaganza that always felt true to who Roo & Elias are; filled with swimming in the lake, spreading wildflower seeds, and a chuckwagon brunch. Many of the guests chose to camp on the property. The rest of the guests were shuttled back and forth by intricate transportation coordination involving buses, golf carts and trolleys. Turning this property into a venue to accommodate the four hundred guests for a major celebration took many months of careful planning with a truly talented team of people. The results couldn't have been more beautiful and fun.

Torrey & Danny
Torrey and Danny met and fell in love during their undergrad at CU and were living in Boston during their engagement. It was Torrey's family, Boulder-natives, with whom I became close to over the course of planning their wedding at the new, impressive event space at Folsom Field, with the ceremony at the breathtaking St. John's Episcopal Church. However, when I finally met Torrey and Danny the weekend of their wedding, it did not take long to make the jump to feeling close to them too. I have been so lucky to work with such lovely couples and their wonderful families, and this couple was no exception.
Could you imagine the bountiful beauty that a top Denver florist's wedding would have? So much, as you can see here! Mallory, a lead florist at Plum Sage Flowers, and I have worked together on several weddings over the years. I was honored to be chosen by her and Christian as the planner for their October wedding at the McNichols Civic Center Building. These two are not only gorgeous and stylish, they are sweet, easygoing, and fun. And the photos of them traipsing around the city are among my most favorite ever!
Martha and Jared met and starting dating in high school in Alaska. They are now Denver locals and were married in May, on their tenth anniversary. Martha had a very clear design vision and it was fun to bring it life. These two may be the most romantic couple I have worked with; adding loving notes and gifts to one another throughout the day, as you'll see below. What a gorgeous weekend it was! (as was their Denver Engagement shoot that I couldn't resist adding a shot of)
So much of Sarah & Erik's personality came through in their August farm wedding. From the floral theme, the signature cocktail created by the wine distributor bride, incorporation of family heirlooms like a hand embroidered handkerchief and grandma's blue stone ring, to the buried bourbon for good luck and good weather. I loved this wedding!
