Maggie + Austin | Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding | Tabernash, CO

Maggie + Austin have been dear friends of ours for years, so it’s pretty difficult to think about their wedding day without tears, even months later.  Plus, this day marked our 100th wedding (!!!) with PSE, so it packs an emotional punch.  These two truly focused on the details — personalized snippets that made their celebration feel like “them.”  Family heirlooms were highlighted, their dog and cat made appearances, they crafted their own signage and paper goods, and each guest went home with an aspen bark vase, designed by the mother of the bride.  We always tell our brides and grooms to “embrace the chaos” on their wedding days and this one proved the point.  Unplanned, imperfect things happen; a wedding is a living, breathing entity.  Maggie + Austin’s dog stopped midway down the aisle to pee, and instead of cringing, we laughed.  It was a moment we will never forget.459 Continue reading

Amalia + Sam | Blackstone Rivers Ranch Wedding | Idaho Springs, CO

Amalia + Sam’s wedding day occurred on the night of a meteor shower.  They encouraged guests to lounge on a viewing deck under the stars to enjoy nature’s magic, but this couple has a magic all their own — a magnetism, a deep kindness — so most guests found it difficult to pull themselves away from the party.  And what a party it was!  These guests had stamina!  When we look back on our 2018 season, many weddings stand out for different reasons, but this is the one that resonates in our hearts — the one that makes us believe in love…and in people.  Amalia + Sam, you are a gift.  Thank you for leaving your fingerprints on our world. A+S-86 Continue reading

Silver + Matt | Lyons Farmette Wedding | Lyons, CO

Silver + Matt’s wedding day started with a hail storm, but we were still able to hold a beautiful and sunny outdoor ceremony a few hours later.  Proof that Colorado weather is truly unpredictable minute to minute.  With sweet details to share with their guests and pizza + cupcakes for dinner, everyone was more than happy to brave the weather to help these two celebrate!  Our favorite details were the topographical maps that the groom + groomsmen wore (marking the spot where the groom proposed) and an epic watercolor display of the cupcake varieties available for dessert!austyn-elizabeth-SMH769 Continue reading

Lauren + Jason | Della Terra Wedding | Estes Park, CO

What a fun day we had celebrating Lauren + Jason!  This couple was so full of joy…and dance moves!  We loved how they kept things simple with an elegant ivory palette, non-fussy cookies + ice cream for dessert, and a sweet DIY polaroid guest book station.  Plus, we got to hang out with Henley, the ring bearer pup, so we’d call that a win.  Congrats to this amazing bride + groom!  We are so happy for you!  LAUREN+JASONMARRIEDblogset-43 Continue reading

Bea + Kelly | Piney River Ranch Wedding | Vail, CO

Look at this photo.  LOOK AT IT!  This is what celebration and joy looks like!  Bea + Kelly tied the knot at one of our favorite mountain settings on a glorious fall day.  Their friends and family were some of the sweetest and most enthusiastic wedding guests we’ve ever encountered and their day was filled with joyous singing, infinite kisses, and a visit from a local moose!  We loved bringing their boho, cacti-inspired design vision to life with epic fall floral from Emma Lea Floral and sweet menu bundles complete with adornments of dainty aspen leaves.  The wedding day ended with quiet chats around a bonfire, late-night sliders, and the brides dancing off into the moonlight in matching denim jackets.  It was perfect._DSC6204 Continue reading

Laura + Nick | Coohills Wedding | Denver, CO

We were so excited when Laura + Nick came to us with their ideas for a classic, urban wedding!  Coohills Restaurant + the neighboring 14th Street bridge were the perfect locations for them to bring their vision to life and dance the night away al fresco under bistro lights.  We kept the design simple but impactful with delicate greenery, acrylic details, and blue napkins + glassware for a pop of color.  We absolutely fell in love with this couple and we were so happy to be involved with their planning!DePetro-392 Continue reading

Erin + Jonathan | Riverbend Wedding | Lyons, CO

We love how Erin + Jonathan chose to incorporate so many personal details into their design: peaches as place cards as a tribute to a grandmother whose nickname was “Georgia Peach,” ginger jar centerpieces from the bride’s very own collection, a spread of desserts comprised of family recipes, and a signature cocktail to honor a family member who could not attend.  Plus, with Betty the Beverage Burro passing out goodies, it was bound to be a good day.  Congratulations on a beautiful celebration!

Caitlin + Jake | Planet Bluegrass Wedding | Lyons, CO

There was so much to love from Caitlin + Jake’s wedding, but we were most excited about their vision to incorporate color into their design!  From the moment they fell in love with the printed floral napkins they chose, we knew where the rest of their design was headed.  We completed the look with a ceremony installation with bright floral climbing up the trees, two-piece bridesmaid dresses, bright coral peonies, and whimsical signage.  Our favorite (and tiniest) detail: the sketched potato icon that designated the vegetarian meals on the escort cards!  The cutest!Trask_0257 Continue reading
