Brooke + Jim | Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding | Tabernash, CO

It was so fun to design this colorful winter wedding at Devil’s Thumb Ranch!  We kept the intimate ceremony in the Timber House more traditional with lush ivory blooms + trailing greens and then amped things up for the reception with deep maroons, bright pinks, and glam gold.  It was such a fun surprise for guests and really helped differentiate the celebration spaces.  We love looking through these photos and reliving this gorgeous day!

Denise + Marty | Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding | Tabernash, CO

We couldn’t be more thrilled that our 2019 season started off with the intimate winter wedding of this lovely couple!  There is nothing quite like celebrating your marriage on a magical, snowy day in the mountains, cozied up in front of a roaring fireplace and sipping hot cocoa.  With only 40 guests in attendance, it was important to make the Broad Axe Barn at Devil’s Thumb Ranch feel full despite the small guest count, and one long community table did the trick!  Modern + classic details rounded out the design, including a neutral color palette, wintry furs, rustic wood accents to complement the mountain lodge setting, and chic acrylic drink stirrers that doubled as escort cards!  DeniseandMarty-30 Continue reading

Andrea + Mikey | Flying Diamond Ranch Wedding | Steamboat, CO

We couldn’t be happier that Andrea + Mikey chose us to help them bring their romantic, mountain wedding to life!  We designed the reception tent to mimic the atmosphere of the cozy, intimate ceremony that took place in a nearby aspen grove.  These bouncy, lush florals and soft, airy paper goods truly took our breath away!  Our favorite details included a show-stopping, 5-tier, ruffly cake and a signature drink named after the couple’s sweet pup, Calvin.  Congratulations you two!  We wish we could relive this beautiful day again and again!

Brooke + Bryan | Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding | Tabernash, CO

Brooke + Bryan’s wedding celebration was the perfect combination of elegant + funky.  The ceremony + reception spaces were designed to feel classy and timeless and guests enjoyed a high end meal from the chefs at the resort.  But when the lights went down, guests were treated to an epic dance party complete with go-go dancers and lava lamps!  This wedding was so much fun, with surprises around every turn, and we were so thrilled to be a part of it!  Congrats again, Brooke + Bryan!Tara_Bielecki_Photography_Brooke_Bryan_Wedding_291 Continue reading

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
