Mariana + Tom | Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding | Tabernash, CO

Mariana + Tom traveled to Colorado from Australia for their picturesque winter wedding in the mountains.  That definitely sets a record for us in terms of destination weddings!  Nevertheless, this couple is proof that planning from afar can be a breeze.  We worked together to create a wedding design that was cozy + romantic and brought “the outdoors in,” accented by tons of candlelight, floor to ceiling floral installations, and mismatched place settings.   We paid tribute to the groom’s Kiwi roots in several ways, including the incorporation of fern + korus to the floral design and mini meat pies to the menu.

Mariana + Tom, we wished you lived closer!  We were hooked on you as soon as you told us that Hamilton’s “Helpless” would be your recessional song and if we’re being totally honest, you still have a hold us.  Thanks for making 2018 walk in and our hearts go “Boom!”MarianaandTom118 Continue reading

Katie + Ben | Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding | Tabernash, CO

Katie + Ben’s wedding was one of our very favorites to design!  We tell their story to almost all our new clients: After getting to know them a bit, we learned that Ben was a huge lego buff, so we came up with a sophisticated way to incorporate legos into their wedding design.  Scroll down to see the finished product from Whimsy Design Studio!  We turned white legos into thumb tacks and used them to display all of the escort cards.  We absolutely LOVE how it came together!  As always, thanks to the rest of this vendor team for being rockstars!  Full list is below.657 Continue reading

Kara + Brendan | Devil’s Thumb Wedding | Tabernash, CO

Here’s another favorite wedding from Devil’s Thumb Ranch!  You’re not going to want to miss the amazing floral element that Emma Lea Floral created for this ceremony.  It increased our love for pampas grass, if that’s even possible.  Elegant + modern details rounded out the rest of the design.  We especially loved the place card agates and signage from Whimsy Design Studio!  As always, thanks to Laura Murray Photography for being flawless and capturing this day so wonderfully.175 Kara Brendan Continue reading

Amanda + John | Chief Hosa Lodge Wedding | Golden, CO

We are so excited to be sharing this winter wedding on the blog today!  This was one of the sweetest, most intimate celebrations.  A modern geometric theme wove its way through the wedding design, all the way from the hexagon backdrop that the groom crafted himself to the cake decorations.  We have so many favorite memories from this day: watching the guests take a shot together to toast the couple for the first time at the end of the ceremony, seeing the bride and groom’s joyous faces as they scurried away together for some post-ceremony alone time, and being dragged to the dance floor by the bridal party to dance the evening’s last song — Shout!  Yes, we danced.  No, it wasn’t pretty.  But, it’s a moment we’ll never forget!  Congrats Amanda + John on a fantastic celebration and best wishes for the adventures ahead!

Michelle + Jamie | Moss | Denver, CO

This incredible bride and groom planned everything with their guests in mind:  a stand-out dinner (laid-back Italian food, including chicken parmesan + garlic bread), an interactive photo booth complete with a floral backdrop + flower crowns for the ladies, multiple delicious dessert options (including a crepe cake + gelato), cheesy tater tots as a late night snack, and a dance party for the ages.  Okay, so most of those involved food, but what better way to a wedding guest’s heart?!  We will remember this day — and Michelle + Jamie’s smiles — quite literally *forever,* and we will never stop being thankful that they found us!  Cheers to clients turing into friends.  There’s nothing sweeter.Michelle_Jamie_481 Continue reading
